Why South Coast HR?

We aren’t very HR

HR professionals often get a hard time.  They get accused of not being business-minded, and getting too caught up in the process.  Unfortunately, this criticism is often very valid.

A lot of HR consultants have only ever worked in corporate HR teams.  They don’t get how a business works, and they certainly can’t relate to the pressures of running a small business.

That’s where we are different.  Our consultants haven’t just worked in corporate HR departments.  Emily and Caroline both have experience beyond working in HR, and they both have first hand experience of running small businesses.  We tend to call a spade a spade, and won’t bamboozle you with buzzwords and things you don’t need.

We are small

Being a small team, we are naturally more nimble and can be flexible to what your business needs.  When you work with us, you will have direct access to your consultant with a mobile phone number and email, so you won’t have to explain your situation time and time again to a faceless call centre, or get passed from pillar to post to get your question answered.

We encourage long term relationships

You may only need to use our support now and again, however, we want to get to know you and your business.  Every business is different, and as such our advice will be tailored to you and what you need.  So getting to know you, and developing long term relationships and friendships with you is really important to us.

We are local

Want us to hop in the car and come  and help you with a difficult meeting? Sure.  When you work with us we will support you as much or as little as you need.  Sometimes this means we can help you on the phone, by email or on a video call, however at other times only face to face will do.  If you are within an hour’s drive or an easy train journey away, we are happy to come to your business and support with those tricky meetings and difficult discussions.

Who do we work with?

We love working with a variety of businesses and business owners – from start-ups, small to medium sized established businesses, charities and growing businesses with ambitious goals. Those who need expert, professional HR support without the expense of recruiting a full-time HR manager.

Whichever category you fit into, our clients have one thing in common: you are a busy business owner, CEO or manager who wants their HR taken care of by a safe pair of hands. You want someone who is down to earth, speaks plain English and won’t bamboozle you with ‘HR’ talk.

Working from our offices in Arundel and Chichester, we work with clients across Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey.
