Back to home

Practical, business focussed HR from an experienced professional

Employees are the biggest investment many firms make, and they also come with legal responsibilities. Ariadne Associates are concerned not just making sure you fulfil your legal requirements, but with giving you best advice to ensure your organisation's future success. We can help in the following areas:

  • Employment Law;
  • Recruitment;
  • Training & Development;
  • Redundancy;
  • Dismissals/Tribunals;
  • Merger, Takeover and Flotation;
  • Developing Your Organisation's Culture and Style.

We've worked with many businesses in the Merseyside area over the past 15 years, as well as being accredited by various national and regional organisations, and have a reputation for delivering down to earth, practical support


Ariadne Associates have over 17 years experience providing HR support to smaller firms. We understand the issues that businesses face and aim to provide you with effective solutions. If you've encountered HR people whose response is to say "no, you can't do that" then give us a call - our approach is to find you a legal but practical answer.

Working with us, you'll get advice and support from a fully qualified CIPD professional, with experience of a broad range of HR issues in private, voluntary and public sectors. Director Simon Jones is a well known HR author and speaker and HR Tutor - check his profile on LinkedIn for more information and client recommendations.
