We’re not your average East Midlands HR consultancy!

We’re a multi-award winning 5-star rated team of friendly and down-to-earth CIPD-qualified HR consultants. We provide outsourced HR support and employment law consultancy for growing businesses in Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, and the surrounding East Midlands area. But we’ve got a few things that make us different from the average HR consultancy.

We pride ourselves on the personal service we deliver to employers. No anonymous telephone helpdesks or generic document databases here. Just proper face-to-face HR support from down-to-earth approachable people with actual names. People who you can get to know and trust, and who can be relied on to be there to provide practical assistance and a non-judgemental friendly face whenever things aren’t going so well. People who in turn can really get to know you and your business, and so fully understand how best to help you achieve your goals. HR support like it should be.

What local businesses say about our outsourced HR support services

Loates HR Consultancy are very much part of our team

“Loates HR Consultancy are very much part of our team, providing good clear advice just when we need it. They provide the perfect HR solution for any SME.”

Matt Crampton

How did we manage without them?

I have found the team at Loates to be nothing short of brilliant. I always get a really quick response to emails and the tone is always calm and confident, which immediately makes me feel better about whatever HR drama has cropped up in my day.
Their in-person support at meetings is invaluable. I’m sure they have seen it all before, but they make us feel that whatever is going on at our company really matters to their company.
If the person I normally deal with is not available, any of the team are able to pick up the issue and continue the excellent level of service, which suggests really good in-house communication.
I’m a bit scared to think that we used to run our company without the support of Loates – what were we doing?!?

Nicky Hudswell

Prompt and efficient service
