“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.

Balvinder Budesha

I joined the NFU on 1 September 2020 as an Employment Law Consultant. My role is to provide high quality advice and consultancy support on employment law matters to our members. This can range from drafting/reviewing contracts of employment, handbooks, policies and procedures to providing advice on disciplinary, grievances, redundancies, wages just to name but a few!

I qualified as a Solicitor in 2004, I began my legal career at Coventry Law Centre before moving into private practice and then continuing my career working for a HR Consultancy firm and then for a ABS. I have specialised in providing employment law advice to both employees and employers throughout my career, including conducting and representing both employees and employers in Employment Tribunal.

Outside of work, I like to try and keep fit by attending Les Mills exercise classes and spending time with my family. I love cooking and eating!! And especially enjoy travelling around the world.
