HR Consultancy, HR First, provides a range of services to support businesses to ensure compliance when contracting labour. In today’s environment, labour is engaged via various contractual arrangements including permanent contracts, self-employed contracts for service, zero hour contracts, and director’s service agreements.

Our HR consultants understand the dynamics of the client’s business and work seamlessly alongside the client’s management team as the HR business partner, providing employment law specialist advice and advice on HR procedures proactively or at the point of need. At HR First, our HR consultants identify,design and implement HR solutions which are sustainable and effective and tailored to the client’s needs, resulting in businesses which are more profitable, easier to manage and legally compliant.
As an HR consultancy, HR First recognises that for many of our clients, their labour costs are a significant proportion of the overall costs of running their business and therefore human resources need to be used effectively and advice is tailored accordingly.
Ensuring a workforce is fully skilled in the right areas to a high standard, focussed, motivated, remunerated cost effectively and operates as a unified team to deliver service excellence is not easy. It requires planning, dedicated resources with HR specialist skills and knowledge coupled with commercial and operational experience, and time. Our HR service allows the business owner to outsource HR, secure in the knowledge that our HR consultants have the specialist HR skills and understanding of operational issues to deliver an effective HR solution and can offer the HR help needed to not only support but add value. By outsourcing to HR First, clients can focus concentration on their ‘core’ business without distraction, secure and relaxed that HR First is monitoring and managing issues in their business regarding employment matters.
