As a member of IDU I required representation regarding a re-deployment situation within my organisation. Abi Sesay was appointed to my case. I found her approach professional, personable and very knowledgeable around this subject. This instantly put me at ease during what was a stressful time for me. Abi was extremely diligent and meticulous when it came to strategizing our plan of action. She was able to predict patterns of response and prepare me for alternative outcomes in order to avoid unemployment.Due to Abi’s level of involvement throughout this process the final decision led to the best case scenario for me. I am extremely grateful to Abi for her support and would highly recommend her expertise to any of my professional colleagues experiencing difficulties at work.

I would definitely recommend IDU to my fellow colleagues and others.
