Changing Course

Whether you plan to grow or downsize, you’ll need to consider how your employees fit into the roadmap. Be prepared with the correct procedures for critical milestones.

HR Consulting Services and Support

We are based in South Shields town centre, a stone’s throw from the A19 Tyne Tunnel and the metro is on our doorstep. We support our clients by telephone, video call or email and also onsite work. We also welcome our clients to visit us at our offices.

Our office location provides easy access to Newcastle, South Tyneside, Gateshead, North Tyneside. In fact, it takes us no longer than around 40 minutes to get to any of our client’s sites in the North East, meaning, when needed, we can be available at short notice to support clients face to face rather than just on the phone.

Our client group covers a range of industries including:

  • Digital / IT

  • Manufacturing

  • Charities / Not for Profit

Additionally, we feel strongly about helping our communities, so we also support a number of charities with their HR on a pro bono basis, including The Sunshine Fund, Grace House, The Charlie & Carter Foundation and NE Youth.

Small businesses across the North East often come to us because they have an employee issue that needs managing. We can help them resolve that initial issue and then provide guidance as to what steps they can take to prevent further occurrences happening. This could be through reviewing their contracts, handbooks and policies or coaching and training their line managers in the various areas of employee management.

Our customers continue to work with us because we take the time to understand their business and how they want to manage their employees (our longest customer has been with us for 9 years and counting). All of our clients manage their teams in different ways, and so we tailor our advice so that it reflects the way in which the business is managed.
