Sanjay Sinhal

“I’m Sanjay and I’ve been working for the NFU since September 2013. My role is to manage the NFU Employment Service membership on a day-to-day basis ensuring all elements of the service are running smoothly for our members.

"I also look after prospective members by discussing their requirements and ensuring we have a full understanding of their business to ensure we provide a bespoke and high quality level of employment law support.

"I am happy to discuss your requirements face-to-face or over the telephone. Please feel free to contact me directly to discuss any aspects of the membership.

"Outside of work I enjoy (attempting) to keep fit by going to the gym and playing sports such as football and badminton. I also try to spend as much time as possible keeping busy with my wife and two daughters!”

Employment Consultant

Teresa Ireland

“My name is Teresa (Terri) Ireland, I have worked for the NFU since January 2002. The NFU supported me as I came to the end of 11 years of studying part-time while working full-time and I finally qualified as a barrister. I studied at the Inns of Court School of Law and was called to the bar at The Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn in July 2003. As a result I was introduced, along with other newly qualified barristers, to The Queen after church in Windsor Great Park, and she kindly spoke a few words with me.

"Since 2007 I have worked as the Employment Service Consultant covering England and Wales in order to support and represent members with employment issues for example redundancies, grievance and disciplinary hearings. I also work with members to put in place contracts of employment and a staff handbook which demonstrate good working practices to their employees. In my spare time I look after my horses; a Friesian and the latest addition, a Clydesdale yearling now two years old and over 16.2hh!”
