What our HR support covers

  • Operational HR work, including HR policies, processes and procedures, employee relations, general recruitment support such as liaising with recruitment agencies and providing initial candidate screening for junior and subject-matter expert roles.
  • Strategic HR guidance around M&A and other organisational change projects. We can also offer mentors to HRDs who are new to a role or to an organisation and want an expert who has ‘been there, done that’ as a sounding board or for advice. Read more about coaching.

We can be onsite, work remotely or both, and work as the sole HR person in a small business or as part of your HR team.

For medium to large companies

  • Wide-ranging HR support as you need it: on the end of the phone, on site, for specific pieces of work or ongoing.
  • Short-term input of HR expertise to enable your in-house team to drive change and focus on value-adding activities or deal with spikes in demand.
  • Contracted service where you buy a number of hours or days for a defined period, increasing them when needed or bringing in a different skill set as required.

For smaller companies

  • We aim to save you more money than we cost you, enhancing profit rather than diluting it, freeing up your time for revenue-generating activities.
  • Contracted service where you buy a number of hours or days for a defined period, increasing them when needed or bringing in a different skill set as required.
