Our services


We provide strategic employment and HR advice and support to assist with any issues you may encounter when managing people. This ranges from recruiting new staff, managing their performance and absence, through to them leaving the organisation and a whole range of things in between.


We regularly deliver employment and HR courses for parish and town councils and can also design and deliver bespoke courses tailored to your council’s needs.

Policies and documents

We offer all Hampshire ALC and BALC members access to statutory disciplinary and grievance policies and a standard employment contract template. To access these, please sign into the Member Area.

We can work with you to review and update your existing employment and HR policies and procedures or produce bespoke ones tailored to your councils’ requirements.

In addition to the statutory policies, we recommend all employing organisations have policies and procedures in place for Absence, Family Friendly Leave, Data Protection and a Code of Conduct.
