about us image

The starting point for an excellent employment relationship is recruiting the best for the roles. As boring as it may sound, a clear description of the role and its responsibilities are crucial to achieving this. It allows you to recruit the best person and your potential employees to understand what the role entails.

Once you have found your perfect employee, organisations need a well-written employment contract and supporting documentation. This is the agreed framework for the employment relationship. Our bespoke employment documentation can help you establish a clear employment relationship with your employees, where everyone understands what is required of them. This is an excellent basis for a successful ongoing relationship between employer and employee.

Once the employment relationship has been set out, like all things, it needs to be managed. Our HR Support service will support you to do this and keep employees on track towards achieving your organisational goals. 

Your Account Manager will be available to provide you with ongoing advice and support to manage the employment relationship and ensure you comply with any legal requirements.  You will have unlimited email and telephone access to your Account Manager, who will also provide you with any documentation you will require to manage day-to-day issues with your employees.

Like all relationships, the employment relationship is subject to change to respond to internal and external factors. We can support you through any of these changes.
