Whether you are a brand new or growing business and you realise that you need help with the fundamentals of Human Resources to ensure you look after your employees and yourself throughout the full life cycle of the employment journey … or you already have HR in place but need a particular project carried out which means you need extra help … Or you would like answers to a specific problem you have … then that is what Diamic Edge HR & Business Consultancy does!

Working on either a half or full day rate, project rate or retained month to month basis for certain hours or days each month … whichever suits your needs!

Our unique monthly roll-over 3 month period (which allows you to roll-over unused hours if not used) ensures that even when things are quiet, we can get together quarterly to review your last period and plan for the next quarter without any extra cost to yourselves!

Our clients range from small start-up businesses of no more than a few people in the team, to larger organisations who need more expertise on-board for a specific time on a temporary basis.

So if you need a very experienced HR ‘safe pair of hands’, with experience spanning over 30 years within small businesses, SMEs and global multi-nationals, who practically can implement and advise for your size and sector of business, then contact us today!

We offer a free initial no obligation consultation to discuss your current HR arrangements and discuss how we can help you with cost effective, practical planning and general implementation of everything from the right legal documents through to the full employee life cycle (See attachment file for more information) requirements of your business!
