If you’re suffering from difficult situations involving staff, sometimes you need someone to give you advice – or deal with it on your behalf. Whether it involves talking with or interviewing employees or conducting disciplinary procedures, our HR consultants handle issues practically and professionally.
Our strategic HR consultant can help you to manage your employees so you’re all working towards the same goal and the needs of the organisation. Strategic HR can affect every aspect of the employment relationship.
We offer a number of human resources solutions and services suitable for academies and schools in the North East area, including a mix of remote advice and support and an extensive list of Pay As You Go options.
If you need one-off health and safety audit, or on-going support with a ‘competent person’ to hand, our health and safety HR consultant will ensure you operate a compliant environment at all times.
Employees are legally entitled to a written statement of their main employment terms, and well-written employment contracts, staff handbooks, policies and procedures start the working relationship off in the right way. So choose the right HR consultants to take your business forward.

First of all, can I congratulate you on your great service and business model. It has been perfect for us
Professional People Management’s input was vital during the restructuring exercise; we are a people-focused business and they helped us involve our staff in the business ethos of delivering excellent customer care, working with us to implement a staff development and training plan. We are continually growing and staff now grow with us!
As an SME company, we had a wide range of human resource issues that had to be addressed appropriately to help us meet relevant legislation. We wanted to find a company with whom we could build a strong, working relationship whilst retaining the flexibility we require to manage the business. Professional People Management has provided us with this relationship and have now worked with us on several projects, helping us manage and implement our human resource decisions very effectively. We would like to acknowledge your companies performance and the professional, personal feel that you bring with it, and are confident this business partnership will continue to grow and develop in the future.
We have been working with Professional People Management since July 2011. Since that time, they have helped us to develop a number of HR processes more aligned with our growth strategy. This has included the development and implementation of a performance management system which helps us to achieve our key business goals. Professional People Management continually keep us up to date with relevant employment legislation. Their wealth of experience within all areas of HR gives us the confidence to act on their advice. Their prompt response to problems and queries is always reassuring and their professionalism shows in everything they do.
PPM has been our outsourced HR provider since January 2012. During this time they have helped develop and implement an HR strategy aimed at driving forward our business plan. This included a company-wide restructuring programme and the development and implementation of a competence-based performance management system. They take a very pragmatic approach to HR and understand that a ‘one size fits all’ solution isn’t suitable for every organisation – taking into consideration other important factors such as organisational culture, value and ethos, they then tailor their advice accordingly. We have already recommended their HR services to other companies, who are now benefitting from their business-focused approach
