Jo Holland, CEO Small Claims Mediation – Leicester, is a CEDR trained and accredited mediator specializing in small claim disputes. Her experience extends to in excess of 800 mediations. Jo was a civil servant who went through a tough assessment process to determine if she had natural skills to become a mediator, she was successful and promoted to senior manager level and undertook her training by CEDR. Unlike most mediators fresh out of training, Jo took over the East Midlands Court Circuit and set up the HMCTS Small Claims Mediation Service. Immediately mediating 4 cases every day along with fully managing the service, its’ administration and liaison with the Judiciary and stakeholders. Jo achieved a settlement rate of 90% and 100% client satisfaction.
Having spent 20 years in the Civil Service, and looking for a new challenge, Jo made the decision to leave to realise her dream of setting up her own private mediation practice. Using her knowledge of the HMCTS model she has developed a service offering proportionate dispute resolution using telephone and has extended that model to include ODR in light of the EU Directive on ADR/ODR Consumer Redress. Jo’s aim was to create an affordable accessible service for users and steady work for mediators and has established herself as the market leader in small claims mediation. Jo has a large panel of mediators working across the UK and has developed links in other European countries to establish her type of mediation service for small claim disputes. Jo has challenged the way disputes are resolved and has raised the profile of mediation, demonstrating to large organisations the huge benefits of using mediation rather than adjudication.
She convinced the largest UK Government backed tenancy deposit scheme to run a mediation pilot alongside their adjudication scheme, the pilot has already demonstrated faster dispute resolution, reduction in complaints, higher customer satisfaction and significant cost savings for the not for profit organisation. Her proposal to the largest UK law firm franchise was accepted and the launch for a joint small claims service is expected January 2014. Whilst sounding like a cliche, Jo has the kind of passion and determination that will ensure she continues to bring small claims under the spotlight, and as a result reduces the burden on the courts that the high volume of these disputes creates.
