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.

  • It costs on average £11k to replace a leaver when you take into account productivity loss, the time it takes for staff to become effective, advertising costs, agency fees and cost of equipment according to Croner.
  • The average unfair dismissal pay out in 17/18 was just over £15,000! The average Disability Discrimination claim that was won in 17/18 was just over £30,698!! If you work with us you could be proactive, compliant and reduce the risk for these types of claims affecting you!

What Clients Say About Us

Theresa was an invaluable support for myself and our team. Her advice and guidance coupled with her willingness to get stuck in contributed significantly to an improved work environment for the entire business. I cannot recommend her highly enough.



Dearson Winyard

Theresa was excellent and was more of a colleague than a consultant. She listened and would state her opinion backed up with facts but would also be willing to compromise to find a solution. I learned so much HR, with Theresa as my bible/leader. It ranged from carrying out disciplinaries to redundancies. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Theresa again, she comes highly recommended from me.
