If you’re overwhelmed by the concept of HR for your small business, let us take it off your hands.
As a small business, you’re used to juggling many responsibilities. From meeting your customer’s needs, to managing finances and keeping up with industry trends, it can be hard to handle it all. That’s where we come in.
Rather than hiring an in-house HR team, which can be costly, our HR support service will be your dedicated partner. We’ll handle projects, recruitment, training, development and keep it simple to ensure that you can focus on what really matters- your business.
We’ve all been there. The overwhelming stack of CVs to sift through, the daunting task of interviewing potential candidates, the paperwork associated with payroll and benefits. It can be a lot to handle, especially for small businesses trying to juggle it all. But there’s an alternative that can not only streamline your HR tasks but also bring in professional expertise – Outsourced HR Services.
Here at The HR Consultants, we believe in keeping things simple and cutting the jargon. HR support should be simple and accessible, allowing you to focus on your business functions. That’s why we provide a range of small business HR outsourcing services ranging from no strings HR support to recruitment assistance and training. In addition, we’re proud to use a simple HR software called Breathe that allows you to move away from paper documentation and towards a cleaner, more efficient admin system. Not only does it automate those time-consuming admin tasks, but your employee information is all stored in one place. It’s a win- win!Get in touch
With decades of collective experience providing small businesses with HR support, you can be sure that we know how to get the best out of people. Get in touch with us today to find out more about our small business HR solutions!
When you choose to outsource your HR needs with us, the process is simple.
Once you’re happy with the plan, our team will start executing it. We’ll handle all the complicated bits, from compliance and hiring to benefits admin and conflict resolution.
We’ll provide continuous support to ensure everything runs smoothly. We’re always here to answer your questions, offer advice, and adjust our services as your business grows and changes in the future.
This is where we learn about your business, understand your current HR challenges and discuss your long-term goals. If you’re after ad-hoc services, we can discuss your needs and create a detailed plan for the short-term. The more we know about your company the more effectively we can tailor our services.
Based on our initial consultation, we’ll create a bespoke HR plan that suits your business size, industry, and goals. This plan will outline the services you require – whether that’s recruitment assistance, training and development, HR documentation, or ongoing consultancy for small businesses.
Unlike other HR companies, we cut the jargon and are proud to deliver independent, simple HR support that helps small businesses thrive. More often than not, small businesses are overwhelmed by the admin, paperwork and HR and employment law involved with human resources. We’re here to streamline these processes for you and take the stress out of HR. Let’s take a look at why we’re different to HR outsourcing companies:
You’ve got the basics sorted out, and now you’re looking to take your team to the next level, beyond what your competitors are doing. We all know that finding and keeping great people is tough these days. Smaller businesses, who might not have big budgets, need to come up with fresh, smart ideas to stand out and stay competitive when looking for top talent.
This is where we can really help, and honestly, this is the part we love. There are so many ways we can help you build on the good stuff you’re already doing to really make your business shine:
One way is by doing a Gap Analysis. This helps us find the difference between where your team is right now and where you want them to be. We’ll work with you to come up with a plan to bridge that gap. Maybe you’re looking for ways to bring new people into your business by boosting your ’employer brand’. This involves figuring out what your team loves about working with you, what makes you special, and how to wrap all that up into a super appealing package for your recruitment efforts. Or perhaps you’re thinking about stepping back from the everyday running of the business, so you can focus on bigger-picture stuff. To do that, you’ll need to help your team members step up and become confident leaders.
We can do this through coaching or a more organised learning program.

Running a business and managing a team can mean you’ll come across a few unexpected challenges. During these tough times, having an HR consultant by your side can be a real game-changer. It helps make things better for you and your team, while also protecting your business from any legal trouble or damage to your reputation.
Employment Law is a tricky area, and it’s continuously evolving and changing as new cases go through the system and new governments come into power. Engaging with an HR Consultant, especially when you sense a storm brewing, gives you the peace of mind that you are doing the right thing and protecting yourself, your business, and your people.
We always keep an eye on what’s new in the business world. This includes new rules and regulations but also what other businesses are doing that works well. And even though you might be talking to just one of us, our entire team is here to support you. We’ve seen a lot over the years, so very little can surprise us!About Us

Sally Anne Butters – Director, Rev PR
" Charlotte was a pleasure to work with. I was a little behind on my HR. Within a week, everything was up to date, and my mind was at rest. Charlotte took time to understand what I wanted and how I wanted my business to be portrayed and then executed all the documentation I needed within a few days. Charlotte is very professional and easy to work with, and I would 100% recommend for anyone needing HR support. I will be using Charlotte of all my future HR requirements. "
Thomas Farnell – Managing Director, Entertainment Nation
" A friend of Active Nation, Charlotte helps our organisation on special projects with impeccable attention to detail. With a ‘mantra’ of ‘creating happy people’ Charlotte is testament to this approach. My view is when all things are equal, people work with people they like, and when things are not equal people still want to work with people they like. A 100% recommendation and endorsement from me because you’ll like working with ‘The HR Consultants’ too I’d imagine. "
Stuart Martin – Managing Director, Active Nation
" The HR Consultants were brilliant to work with - they delivered a bank of HR policies and took the time to get to know the company so that the tone and branding was exactly right. It was refreshing to work with people who wanted to create something unique and personal to the business rather than regurgitating off the shelf docs. "
Lucy Grainger - Finance Manager and Head of People, The Shoots Group
Small businesses typically need basic HR functions including recruitment, employee onboarding, compensation and benefits management, training and development, performance management, and compliance with laws. As the business grows, the need for additional HR services may increase.
While it’s not a legal requirement to have a designated HR department, businesses of all sizes must comply with employment laws. This involves keeping on top of record keeping, minimum wage laws, and ensuring non-discriminatory practices and benefits.
Hiring an HR outsourcing company is one of the most effective ways to ensure HR is done correctly and efficiently.
As a general rule, a small company will need Employee Contracts, Handbooks, Hiring Processes, Performance Reviews, Recognition/Awards, Development & Training, and Benefits/Holiday/Sick pay.
Yes, an HR department can help with personal issues as they relate to the workplace. They act as a bridge between the management and the employees and can provide guidance on a variety of personal issues that could impact an employee’s work life.
These can include issues like stress management, work-life balance, personal crises that might impact job performance, conflicts with other employees, and matters related to health, well-being, or family responsibilities.
Yes! Rather than hiring an in-house HR team, outsourcing is much more cost-effective in the long run. This is because you spend less time recruiting, training and having to monitor staff. Instead, this is all done by an external agency, saving you time and effort.
Whether you need HR consultancy for your small business depends on various factors, such as the size of your organisation, your HR knowledge, and the complexity of HR tasks. HR consultancy can provide valuable expertise in recruitment, employee relations, policies, and compliance.
By partnering with The HR Consultants, you can benefit from their experience and guidance tailored to your needs. Their expert consultants can help you navigate HR challenges, develop effective HR strategies, and ensure legal compliance.
