Human Resources Support


Human Resources Management


In the absence of a dedicated Human Resources Department, we can provide ad hoc support to business owners and managers, either on a contract or consultancy basis.  We have significant experience in assisting businesses from small to medium sized enterprises, through to large publicly owned and global companies, with the full range of Human Resources support, including:


- pre-recruitment vetting, interviewing and assessment

- job offer process, compliance issues and documentation

- ongoing management issues of staff, including disciplinary and grievance procedures, application of family friendly policies and pay and benefits issues

- conduct of internal investigations when management require an objective, independent third party to attend and report in relation to grievance, disciplinary or other matters

- termination of the employment relationship and severance arrangements

- post-termination matters, such as references, protection of business, company property and confidentiality


Our support services can be provided remotely, or on a client's premises. 


Ad hoc Human Resources Support


As well as supporting businesses without Human Resources professionals, we also work with Human Resources in circumstances where additional support is required, for example, in the event of maternity or holiday absences, or unforeseen absences such as sickness.


We also assist Human Resources in the event that specialist knowledge and experience is required to compliment the experience and skills already available within an organisation, or the Human Resources Department itself is affected by an event, such as where there is a transfer of a business entity.

Exclusive HR Consulting

(Half or Full Day Rate Service)


Holt HR Consulting is able to offer its HR/employment law services in-house on an exclusi

ve basis for one or more days per month.

This will be enable organisations in need of a limited amount of Human Resources and/or employment law support to benefit from a dedicated service on a regular basis, but without the need to recruit additional full-time (or part-time) staff.  It is also likely to reduce the need for your organisation to seek some external legal advice and support in relation to HR and employment law matters.

Holt HR Consulting will charge for this service at a day or half-day rate to be agreed. Additional or multiple days in the same calendar month will be available at reduced rates.

As an independent consultant (with full indemnity insurance in place), this will avoid the need for businesses to pay employer's National Insurance Contributions, as well as negating the risks associated with statutory employment liabilities, such as redundancy pay and unfair dismissal.

In return, Holt HR Consulting will provide, on an exclusive basis, 8 hours (full day) or 4 hours (half day) of our time and attention, to deal with your various internal HR management and/or employment law issues.  This does not extend to managing payroll or pensions however. 


There is no contractual minimum period - simply a month to month consultancy arrangement without notice requirements on an ad hoc basis.
