Who we are

Keeping abreast of employment law can be incredibly difficult, and on occasion very daunting, particularly for SMEs who often won’t have the resources for an internal HR facility. Yet the impact on your business can be detrimental if things aren’t done “by the book”.

There’s a vast array of complex employment issues and it’s almost impossible for a business to ensure it’s fully aware of all the legalities and their implications.

So, how can businesses go about understanding this minefield and ensure they’re abiding by the law, without having to employ a HR person?

One way is to have a reliable and local HR specialist on hand to support you, who has all the knowledge and legal expertise required.

Lancashire based Andrew Charnock can provide this HR expertise for businesses based in Preston and Leyland.

Andrew’s focus is on developing a personal approach to your business requirements, so if you want advice on a member of staff about to go on maternity leave, that is what he will provide. Equally, if you’re looking for support and advice on a potential disciplinary hearing or tribunal, Andrew will go through all the processes you need to undertake and advise on potential solutions to ensure the most favourable outcome for your business.

Whatever the issue, with over 30 years experience in both the public and private sector, Andrew has the knowledge and skills to help your business. Andrew thrives on building strong relationships with his clients so they know that he is on hand to help them, whatever HR dilemma they are facing.

Andrew can support your business in numerous areas at a fraction of the cost of employing somebody. His expertise include:

  • Disciplinary and grievance
  • Absence management
  • Performance management
  • Recruitment
  • Health and safety
  • Training and development
  • Redundancy

and much more. Click here to find out more about the services we offer.
