We understand that Employment Law may appear confusing and complex. We are here to listen and help you through the process to ensure that issues are being dealt with in the correct manner, whilst adhering to the current Employment Law Legislation. We will take away the time-consuming work from you by dealing with the case and composing necessary letters and documentation. Some of the areas where we may help you include:

We are happy to help you deal with one-off cases such as a disciplinary issue that you may be dealing with or provide you with a more long-term service where you need regular HR advice and guidance on the telephone, email or face to face. We will also visit your premises to conduct meetings should you require.

HR Documentation

We understand that HR Documentation such as Employee Contracts or Handbooks may seem like a low priority for your business. They are however, necessary to ensure that you are complying with Employment Legislation. It is a legal requirement to at least have Employment Contracts in place for your staff.

Contracts along with Employee Handbooks are a positive addition to your business because it helps staff understand the ways in which they are expected to work and provides fairness and consistency.

We will take all this work away from you and review or devise tailor-made Contracts of Employment. We will also review your existing handbook or devise a new bespoke Handbook to suit your requirements. Some of the areas in which we may help you include:

  • Review or devise tailor-made Contracts of Employment

  • HR Documentation such as Maternity Letters/ Documentation, Disciplinary and Grievance Letters/ Documentation, Return to Work Interview Forms, Access to Medical Information.


Recruitment & Selection

Getting the right people in place is fundamental to any successful business and will ensure that your business will continue to grow. Good recruitment practices will mean that you get the right skills, knowledge and experience for the role that you are looking to fill.

We can take the work away from you and manage the recruitment process from start to finish. This typically involves advertising, managing applicants, devising material, interviewing and providing feedback to candidates. We can also run larger scale recruitment activities such as Assessment Centres and provide Interviewer and Assessor Training.

Some of the areas  where we may help you include:

  • Recruitment of Apprentices and most job roles

“The service was superb, Paula took a very tricky situation and gave expert, timely advice which made dealing with it much less stressful. I saved so much time because Paula appraised the situation, asked questions to clarify, told me the correct course of action and even drafted a letter for me to send.
Clever Jellyfish
“Ashton People Solutions worked with the Hospice of The Good Shepherd to assist with the recruitment of a Senior Leadership role. They managed the process from start to finish by liaising with the candidates, designing a comprehensive assessment centre approach to find the right candidate. They facilitated the assessment day and ensured that the assessors were guided and coached, facilitating discussions to help reach a decision.

“Capital Reinforcing first developed a working relationship with Ashton People Solutions in early 2016 after searching the market for a more personal and bespoke approach to HR consultancy. Since then, our virtually non-existence HR department has gone from strength to strength and the difference is there to be seen in how we manage our most important resource: our people.”
