HR Management Support Limited provides small businesses access to professional HR management support on a day to day basis without having the need or expense of maintaining your own HR function.

We provide the support you need, when you need it. We effectively become part of your organisation to call upon for advice, guidance and manage your day to day needs or specific HR issues or projects.

HR Management Support provides the total solution. We have the knowledge, expertise and experience in all aspects of HR management. We will work on site with you as one of your management team. We will provide professional advice, agree and draw up the process, communicate and coach all involved with what needs to be done, lead and manage meetings and interviews and provide any necessary administrative support.

Outsourcing HR

Outsourcing your HR function provides you with all the benefits of a professionally led and resourced internal department but without the same overheads. You can define exactly what HR services are delivered to you and how. HR Management Support can provide a range of services from total professional and administrative support, which will relieve you from having to appoint a member of your own staff to oversee or administer confidential and sensitive personnel issues, to an on demand service that can provide support direct to your managers at a time of need.

The decision will be made by you based on your needs, experience and resources.

Typically a business retaining HR Management Support has recognised that people issues require knowledge, experience and time to resolve, but the business cannot justify the recruitment of a full time qualified professional. Recruiting an inexperienced HR Officer/Administrator does not resolve the problem as they require training and lack the experience to assess risk and manage contentious issues.

You might decide that you would like an HR Manager on-site 1, 2 or more days a week to handle all HR matters, handle enquiries from line-managers and build a professional HR function, or you might decide that you would like support on call as and when you need it. We make recommendations based on what you wish to achieve, so each solution is tailor-made to your requirements.
