Qualified experts

Management Studies degree and a Diploma in HR Management.  Esther has worked at a senior management level gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience in areas such as employee relations, performance management, recruitment, training, change management and HR policy and procedure writing. Her experience has given her a solid all-round knowledge of the critical HR generalist issues that businesses face.

A local comprehensive service tailored to your business

Our local and comprehensive HR service comes at a fraction of the cost of hiring an in-house HR professional often employed by larger businesses.  Our approach is simple; we’ll really get to really know and understand your business to enable us to find the best and most cost-effective solution. We are passionate about small businesses, and helping them to navigate through complex employment legislation, rules and regulations. We believe that by outsourcing your HR, you’re in a better position to do what you do best and grow your business.

Our core offering is a pay monthly, all-inclusive HR Solutions+ service for businesses wanting an ongoing retained service.  As a user of this service you’ll have access to unlimited telephone and email advice.  This comes as standard with our Employers Indemnity Insurance; covering costs of any Fair Work proceedings if you’ve followed our advice from the outset.
