HR Services

You are here

We have offices in Ashford, Canterbury and Herne Bay. Our HR Services are designed to cater for the needs of local businesses by offering experienced HR support to assist existing in house HR teams and smaller businesses lacking a dedicated HR resource.

Girlings’ HR Services compliments the work of Girlings’ Employment Law Department. Among the services on offer are HR Audits (a review of how well your organization’s HR documentation is performing and advice on compliance with good practice and legal requirements), HR training, updating HR documentation including handbooks and policies, interim locum style support, and advice on one off HR projects such as grievance & disciplinary investigations and performance management.

The Girlings’ HR Service is intended to help you to look after your biggest asset – your people - as well as to save you time, money and avoid the stress that managing HR issues can bring.

Practical HR Solutions

Some businesses often do not have the scale or the resources to enable them to employ an HR specialist.  Where this applies it can be cost effective to outsource the HR function or aspects of it to allow key personnel more time to focus on the business.

Girlings’ HR Services can save your business time and money and avoid the pitfalls of liabilities arising. We can help you to put systems in place to support your employees and drive business growth.

We can act as an outsourced HR department, help you with your existing HR practices or simply be around to give you ad hoc advice as and when you need it. Our HR Services have been developed to meet a range of common business requirements and deliver quantifiable benefits. 

HR Audits

HR Audits start at £500 plus VAT for a review to ensure your current HR processes are up to date and compliant with good practice and the latest legal requirements.

Review of HR documentation

We can help you sort out all your HR documentation including contracts of employment, employee handbooks and policies. We can also advise you on how to streamline paperwork and systems to improve efficiency.

HR Software guidance

We can offer guidance on the range of HR software available on the market as well as the implementation and roll out of the software.

HR Support/HR Consultancy

You may be considering a specific HR project such as a redundancy exercise or a contract harmonisation or changing terms and conditions for staff or have a one off need due to sickness or staff absence.  We can arrange interim/locum style support and cover for a range of HR projects including:

  • Grievance & disciplinary investigations;
  • Transfer of Undertakings (TUPE)
  • Performance Management / Appraisals;
  • Introducing flexible working practices.


We offer bespoke training packages on a wide range of HR topics including appraisal skills for managers, absence management, dignity at work, equal opportunities and how to handle discipline and grievance situations.

Retainer Agreements

Our HR Services can be provided on a fixed project fee as required or under annual retainer arrangements.
