HR Consultancy And Support

Setting up business in the UK comes with a host of HR challenges for an international organisation. There’s UK employment law to be considered to start.

Then there are different practices and employee expectations to meet. What benefits (such as holidays and remuneration) do UK employees expect? And what are the risks?

As an employer, there is also a huge amount of day-to-day admin, from paying wages to providing employee support.

But running and maintaining an in-house HR function can be expensive. As such, many international companies find it cost-effective and more flexible to outsource their HR requirements.

Using a specialist like Kirk Rice means you get instant local market knowledge and support. And this enables you to set up business in the UK quickly. As well as proving cost-effective, you get an impartial service too – so you can be sure that the interests of your business and its employees come first.

Why use Kirk Rice?

Good communication is a prerequisite to running a good HR function. So the support we give is practical. And we use clear, jargon free language. You get support both over the phone and on-site where needed – so it is just like having an internal department but without the headache.

We believe that HR should be seen as more than just an obligatory administration function. Done effectively, HR strategy is a great tool to get the most from your employees – and bettering your company’s performance. After all, people are a company’s greatest asset.

But the very nature of dealing with people means HR is not always plain sailing. We provide pragmatic support on tough issues like dealing with difficult employees, or redundancy for example.

We’ll also help you control key risks that might make your firm vulnerable to costly (and damaging) disputes and claims. In fact, we have experience and have overcome most the issues that your business might face.

We are used to working with other departments like payroll and finance, as well as external providers like solicitors. Our accountancy experience also means we know the ins and outs of payroll, as well as employment taxes like PAYE and national insurance.

The Kirk Rice HR team is both experienced and highly qualified. Headed up by Maxine Guest – a Chartered Member of the Institute of Personnel Development and a Chartered Certified Accountant – you can be sure that your HR needs are in a safe pair of hands.
