The charity sector is facing challenging times in balancing core charitable aims with the need to comply with necessary regulations and best practice. At Kent HR we work with charities to deal with practical HR and workplace issues, within constrained finance budgets.
Experienced HR support for charities
We are a team of highly experienced HR professionals who have worked in the public, private and not for profit sectors in operational and strategic roles. We are all members of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and individually hold relevant professional qualifications.
We understand that successful and sustainable charitable organisations want pragmatic and commercial focussed HR support which achieves the best outcomes for beneficiaries and supports charitable objectives. We have proven experience of working with charities’ leadership teams dealing with all HR related matters including:
- Disciplinary and grievance issues, particularly investigations work, providing independent panel members and support for decision making panels/trustees
- Dealing with whistleblowing concerns and bullying and harassment allegations
- Restructuring, redundancies and TUPE transfers, in and out of organisations
- Absence management
- Terms and conditions, contract and pay issues
- Performance management and capability issues
- Safeguarding and managing issues of concern connected with staff
- Training, staff development and retention strategies

HR support retainer
Clients can pre-purchase a bulk amount of retainer time in advance and at a discounted rate, to be used as and when required – to meet client’s on-going or occasional requirements.

We are very happy with the way Kent HR dealt with our HR queries.
Coleman Parkes Research Ltd
The service was very professional and essential to the successful outcome for our company. Veronica grasped the complexities of the situation quickly and provided excellent support.
GASE Engineering Ltd
We have been using Kent HR services for almost a year and have found them to be extremely professional. Previously we were using another company who unfortunately were unable to provide accurate legal advice and in a less timely manner. GASE will continue to use Kent HR for all HR related matters.
Lead Sheet Association
Not having a specialist human resources department available within our organisation, working with Kent HR has proved a valuable asset and support.
Medway Citizen’s Advice Bureau
Kent HR was very efficient and professional throughout. Staff were friendly and were keen to assist with sorting out the issue, wich they did in a very professional manner. Thank you for the efficient, excellent service provided to us.
Oasis Academy Isle of Sheppey
Thank you very much for attending our careers fair, your support was much appreciated. The information and expertise you gave to our students was first class and students commented that they gained valuable information.
Nexus Programme Ltd – Care Homes
An excellent service facilitated by professional, proactive and knowledgeable people. We were made to feel supported throughout the interactions and the support provided was reassuring. I cannot thank the two advisors we worked with highly enough, and feel without their support and guidance we may have ended up with a completely different outcome to our situation.
A no nonsense professional service, which was instrumental in helping to resolve a difficult HR case to the satisfaction of all parties, at reasonable cost to the employer. A follow on review of our HR processes resulted in the complete re-writing our internal staff handbook, to clarify and update the HR process to comply with all recent legislation.
The quality of advice is always excellent. The Kent HR team has got to know us well, and how we work.
