Ay up me duck!
We’ve been around as a company since 2011, with our founders having been based in Derby for over 20 years. We’ve seen the amazing changes that the city has undergone since then, and are proud to be part of its future. Most of our clients are based in Derby and the surrounding East Midlands area, and many of them are only a stone’s throw away from us.
We’re a multi-award winning team of HR consultants in Derby

We provide local outsourced HR support for Derby businesses
And we’re local. With a real office. Not a ‘virtual office’. Not a distant call-centre in some far-away place. We’re not just a website, a collection of document templates, or an anonymous voice on the phone. We’re actual people who want to meet you face-to-face, so we can properly get to know you and your business.
Our office is conveniently located at the scenic and historically interesting World Heritage site of Darley Abbey Mills, not far from Derby city centre. That’s it in the picture. Nice, huh?
Which means we’re readily available to support those HR issues that can only be dealt with in person. And since we have our own private meeting rooms at our office, it means we can have sensitive discussions with you away from your normal place of work. Being able to meet offsite helps protect the privacy of individual employees involved in personal issues, such as disciplinaries or grievances, and helps prevent rumours spreading in relation to company-wide issues such as redundancies or TUPEs.
So, if you’re looking for outsourced HR support in Derby you’re welcome to just pop in when you’re passing. Or we’re equally happy to come over to your place. Or even meet online. Whatever works best for you.
We’re the top rated outsourced HR support provider in Derby
We’ve already grown from a single-person business operating from home, to a multi-award winning company with offices and a whole team of HR consultants and employment law experts. We’ve diversified into HR training, and are currently developing additional sister brands so that we can help you with a whole package of people-related support.
Which means we can offer you the stability of an established company, the credibility of one with a history of local clients, and the capability of one that’s grown beyond the one-person stage. You can be fully confident that we’re able to deliver what we promise, and can trust that we’ll reliably be there in the future when you need help.
We’re proud of what we’ve achieved so far, and in particular, the reputation we’ve established within the local business community.
If you’re a Derby-based business looking for outsourced HR support, the chances are you already know someone that we’ve worked with. So go on, just ask them what we’re like!
“We first heard of Loates HR Consultancy through a client of ours, and they came highly recommended. After now being one of their clients for 7 months we can see why! Matilda and the rest of the team are very professional, friendly and are always on hand to give advice when needed. They have also developed various documents for us and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Loates HR Consultancy are helping us to take our business to another level!”
“…great care and professional diligence…”
“…high level of focus…”
“…thank you very much for your effort…”
“Again another big thank you to Loates HR Consultancy for the support they have given Austin Community Enterprise Limited. This is our first time working with Gill Philips, and we are very pleased with the support that she has given us, she is professional, understanding and a great listener. Her extensive knowledge has helped to gained us a positive outcome. Thanks Gill”
“Loates HR Consultancy have been so supportive. Taking on that first employee can be so daunting, but Rosie and team really laid everything out for us so we were very clear what processes we needed to follow and also what paperwork we needed to get in place. We look forward to working with Loates HR Consultancy as our company develops further – thank you!”
“Sarah has been our HR adviser for 4 years. Sarah works as part of our team and brings her great personality, excellent knowledge and track record of experience to the business. We have always found Sarah’s support and advice to be sensible, logical and pragmatic and have no hesitation in recommending her.”
“Working as an extension to the team, Sarah has been a trusted voice of advice and experience to my growing business. She has given me the support and guidance I needed to expand my workforce through clear and straight-forward direction. I find Sarah to be knowledgeable, flexible and approachable.”
