For many businesses human resources can be a challenge

Outsourcing your HR needs could provide the answer

Highbury Management can offer support on a flexible basis


Some businesses are not large enough to employ dedicated HR staff; some bolt on HR-related work to the job description of an existing employee; others deal with HR matters only when a legal dispute arises, which can be costly.

Whether you are looking for a one-off audit to check on your compliance, contracts or procedures, or looking for ongoing support, perhaps coaching and mentoring of staff, maybe reviewing your recruitment or performance management systems, or do some major work around developing your business, we can help.

We can commit up to three days a week to any one company, either on a fixed term or permanent basis. This could be on a regular day of the week or month, or in a block, whatever suits you. Your business may opt to undergo the full audit before deciding what sort of commitment you want from us going forward.

Fees are competitive and will depend upon the nature of the work, the length of any contract or the number of days per week or month that you want to commit to. We base our charges on a daily rate.

Whatever your needs, we can take care of them.

Testimonials / A word from my clients...

  • Mike supported us through a period of really challenging organisational growth and development. He helped introduce a proper strategy, with a series of measurable targets, and a new decision-making structure.

    He is also excellent with people at all levels, and is a particularly effective individual coach.  We still go back to Mike for one-off advice and projects.  We would recommend him to any company about to go through significant change.

  • Mike has done an excellent job, not only for GRM Windows but also for me personally. He supported us in establishing an effective senior management team and has then helped to drive much of the team’s strategic planning work.

    He is very calm and organized, good at identifying needs and prioritizing them, and he has proved a highly professional and effective coach. His knowledge of HR and expertise in how to deal with employees has also proved invaluable.
