We are a mix of CIPD qualified HR professionals, legally trained employment specialists and H&S qualified professionals. As such, you can be assured that you will receive advice which both meets your HR/H&S requirements and fully complies in your jurisdiction.

We believe that clients should be able to gain access to robust, cost effective employment and Health & Safety advice without paying exorbitant fees or worrying whether the advice is accurate, this is the service you will receive from HR At Work.
