Contracts of employment - development and implentation
Constructing terms and conditions of employment to reflect business operations and current legislation to ensure clarity of rights and obligations for all parties. The right terms and conditions will allow your business to operate flexibly and act responsively to business changes and customer demands.
Policy and procedure - reviews, updates or development
Our policy and procedure service ensures that company policies and procedures are up to date and reflect company rules, operations, and HR best practice.
Audit of employment compliance and practices
We can carry out a thorough review of employment practices within your business or organisation. We will identify any areas of risk and highlight areas for improvement supported by detailed action plans and recommendations.
Staff handbook - reviews and development
We can help you bring your staff handbook up to date and make sure that it reflects best practice requirements. We will ensure your company information, rules, and procedures are communicated in a clear and user-friendly format. If you don’t have a staff handbook, we will work with you to develop a version that suits your business needs.
Preparation of bespoke HR correspondence and documentation
We recognise that each business is different, so we don’t take a “one size fits all approach.” We can create bespoke solutions for your business or organisation to ensure compliance in all of your employee communications.

Always excellent service. Helen is very skilled and knows her stuff. She gives advice and guidance promptly and is always professional.
Jane Kingston, Advocacy Manager at Connected Voice
“Dormor Machine are a family run engineering business with limited resources for managing HR. Helen McDougall has been a great support to us over the years – we receive prompt responses, and her HR knowledge and experience is extensive. It is reassuring for us to know that we can call on Helen for assistance, whether it’s a small query or a wider organisational change. “
Helen Cameron-Clarke, Managing Director
“Helen has provided solid HR advice and guidance to me over the past 20 years. Sometimes I have just needed ad hoc HR advice and at other times Helen has responded to the challenge to help the organisation with bespoke HR advice or training. Helen is extremely knowledgeable but she also just comes with common sense and an understanding to guide employers through challenging circumstances. “
