You can call on us when you are thinking about the options for employing more people 

We can help you explore the options, it may not be a full time permanent hire, fixed term or an agency hire that is the best fit. You can talk with us when you are thinking about and planning a change to the job roles required in your business.  Whether you need a basic employment contract, fixed term, part-time, apprenticeship, casual hour contract, or, for charities a voluntary or work experience agreement, we have a complete range of contracts and supporting employment documents .

We can help you to recruit for the required job role and provide the correct contract ready to be delivered when you need it.


Is your business changing shape?

Are you thinking of alternative options to avoid redundancies?

When there is a need to make a reduction of existing job roles we can help you as you re-organise your structure.  You may be investing in a new business revenue stream, the change may require a reduction in numbers due to recession, or reduced customer orders might be managed by a short term layoff.  At these times you can call on us to discuss the alternatives to redundancy.  Alternative solutions may bring financial cost savings, help you retain skills valuable to your business and reduce the emotional and motivational impact on people in the working environment.  If redundancy is the route you need to take, we can support you and your managers to carry out the process, ensuring compliance and sensitivity in the transition.


When you hear about employment law changes, do you have concerns?

Concerns that they affect your business but you are uncertain in what way or how far reaching?
Concerns of the impact of doing nothing?

Some employment law changes affect all businesses, changes to the National Minimum Wage for example.  Others only impact businesses once they have a certain number of employees, or level of wage bill, and some employment law that larger companies have to comply with may impact the smaller companies in their supply chain, for example, “Whistleblowing”, Modern Slavery Act or Bribery Act.

If you are uncertain about legislative requirements and the relevance of these in your own business, make contact and we will quickly be able to help you get a clear picture of what you need to put in place.

Having Maggie within the office for four months assisting PRS with HR policies, recruitment and general HR advice was extremely helpful.  Being a new company providing outsourced local authority services, having Maggie in-house for advice and guidance was just what we required.

Maggie’s knowledge and experience was just what I required for a recent recruitment, her interview structure helped me select a well rounded candidate who has fitted into the company with ease.

I would highly recommend Maggie to any new / existing business or one that needs a fresh set of eyes to assist with HR.
