HR Support for Accidental Managers 

We offer both ad hoc and regular support to small business owners across the East Midlands from our base in Long Eaton, Derbyshire. 
What makes us different is our absolute focus on not just resolving your immediate HR challenges - but also on helping you put the right systems in place to prevent them from happening again.  
So we don’t just turn up and do your HR for you. 
We work with you to build a way of managing people, and an HR framework, that help you to avoid having difficult HR issues in the first place. 
We’ll build your skills and knowledge around people management, so that you can spot issues earlier, and deal with them proactively and effectively, saving you hours of time. 
Together, we’ll put you back in control of your team by making sure you understand what you need to do, why you need to do it, when it needs to happen, and how to do it effectively. 
Our HR retainers offer great value and the guarantee of a response within 24 hours of your first contact about any particular issue. You choose how much support you need. 
If you’re just looking for bespoke HR documentation to get you started, then our HR Basics retainer is for you. It will give you all the HR policies and forms you need for your first 5-10 employees. 
If you’re growing your established business, but struggling to recruit and keep the right people, or get the best from them, have a look at our Consolidate and Grow package. It will help you transform your HR framework to tackle the new challenges that come as your organisation grows. 
And if you’re overwhelmed by all the HR issues in your business, but can never find the time to actually address them, have a look at our Virtual HR Director package. This offers a root and branch overhaul of your whole approach to employing people, including your own management skills or those of your senior team. 
You won’t find another HR retainer package like this one as it is unique to you and your organisation’s needs. 
Each package comes with consultancy time built in, so you can ask questions or check how to do something before you do it. If you feel you need more time, you can add this in up front, or pay for it as you go. 
Interested? Why not take the first step and get in touch for a free, no-obligation discovery call. 

Ad hoc HR Consultancy (Pay as you Go HR)
