The HR Dept open four new offices to provide local outsourced HR support

National franchise company The HR Dept has started 2013 by opening four new offices to help small and medium sized businesses with their HR support by providing practical and pragmatic advice to prevent ‘people problems’. The HR Dept now boasts 46 local offices throughout the UK. New offices have now opened in Norwich, Eastbourne and Macclesfield to give SME businesses in those regions the same level of professional advice and local support that many large companies enjoy from in-house HR teams.

Martin Johnston will serve businesses in Norwich, Wymondham, Dereham, Sheringham, Holt, Fakenham, Cromer, North Walsham, Wells and Swaffham.

Serena May will serve businesses in Eastbourne, Lewes and the surrounding areas.

Steve Bloor will serve businesses in Macclesfield, Congleton and Leek and the surrounding areas of the Staffordshire Moorlands and the Peak District.

The HR Dept service covers all aspects of HR including contracts and handbooks, the planning and execution of recruitment and selection projects, disciplinary, grievance and performance management cases, redundancy and restructuring, TUPE, compromise agreements and policy writing. Directors of the new offices have extensive experience in a wide range of industries and sectors. All HR Dept offices work closely with customers and quickly build strong relationships so that a tailored service can be provided. The HR Dept recognises that all businesses vary and require different needs, which is why ‘off the shelf’ solutions are not offered.

All four new ‘licensees’ of The HR Dept are looking forward to the challenge and are ambitious to grow their own HR Dept business.

By initially offering a free review of an employer’s contracts and handbook, The HR Dept is able to identify what employers can do to ensure they avoid people problems. No matter how large or small a company is, the main focus of a business owner should be running the business. With an overall customer satisfaction score of 9.1 out of 10 in 2012, it is no wonder that so many companies have made The HR Dept their HR Department.

For an informal discussion about how The HR Dept can help you or to arrange a free confidential health check of your employment policies and documentation, businesses can find their local office on our website or by calling 0800 610 1166 or emailing


Notes to editor:

The HR Dept provides nationwide outsourced HR support to small and medium sized businesses, all that a large company would enjoy from their own in-house HR department but at a fraction of the cost.
