We can also manage one off specific projects, or work with you on your premises – whatever your business needs!

Our core services cover the whole employment life cycle, including:

Employment Law

UK businesses are required to comply with a whole range of employment legislation. Understanding how employment law affects your business can be difficult and confusing. We can provide advice and support in all areas of employment law, which will help reduce the risk of grievances, disputes and costly litigation.


Are you about to recruit staff for the first time and don’t where to start, or are you finding it difficult to recruit the right people? We can advise you on the whole recruitment process, providing written procedures and supporting documentation. Alternatively, we can manage and coordinate the whole recruitment process for you!


No matter how competent and experienced your new staff are, they still need to receive information and training relevant to your business. We can design an induction programme for you, which will help your new staff settle in to the Company and their role as quickly as possible.

Employment Documents

Are you confused about what to include in employment contracts or other related documents? We can provide contracts of employment, staff handbooks, and other employment documents that are fully compliant with employment legislation.

Policies & Procedures

Poor employee relations can have a detrimental effect on any organisation, impacting negatively on morale and productivity. We can provide a set of user-friendly HR Policies and Procedures that will not only ensure your employees are treated fairly and equitably, but will also assist you in managing the business. Customised training workshops can also be provided that will equip you and other line managers with the skills and practical knowledge needed to effectively implement your HR procedures.

Managing Change

Are you unsure about how to deal with the employee aspects of managing change within your business? We can advise and support you with restructuring, mergers, business transfers and redundancies.

Advice & Support

Dealing with disciplinary, grievance, performance or attendance issues can be tricky and time consuming. We can advise and support you throughout the process, as well as undertake investigations and attend formal meetings with you.

Workforce Strategy

Have you considered how your workforce can support the achievement of your business strategy? If the answer is no, we can help you develop and implement an overall workforce strategy that will ensure your staff help you achieve your business objectives.

We can assist you in developing and implementing various methods of communicating and involving your staff in the business.
