Tailored HR Support

If you’re after an ‘off the shelf’ package, then we probably won’t be right for you. However, if you want a local, personal service embedded into your business, then we know we can help. We’ll tailor your package to meet your culture and needs with clear practical advice and action points.


At CooperativeHR Ltd our aim is to improve the performance of businesses through effective people practices. We know that when businesses have the right people in the right jobs at the right level, then they achieve!


With our passion, experience (personal and business) and versatility we understand the issues and offer practical solutions. We harness our passion to deliver results through effective HR Support – reducing your burden.


We are not a big corporate company and as such, we are independent and flexible. And we appreciate that one size doesn’t fit all. Which is why we work closely with business owners to find solutions that fit your business.
