HR Services

The perfect HR solution for small businesses and start ups

Outsourcing your HR is the obvious solution for small businesses giving you the time to concentrate on the things that you do best.  You don't need a full-time HR professional but you also don't want to spend your precious time and energy trying to manage your HR yourself; trying to keep up with employment legislation, pay issues, contracts, terms and conditions and statutory compliance.  By using Virtual-HR you get the benefit of a fully experienced HR professional without the overheads.

Philippa Oakley Chartered MCIPD

I have a strong interest in working with small organisations and start ups where my HR knowledge and support can make a real difference to their business.  I provide a customised HR consultancy service working to identify and find the right HR solutions. 

With solid, hands-on experience of managing the HR function in both the private and public sectors, I decided to turn my hand to HR consultancy.   I have experience of a wide range of industries and sectors including Technology startups, Public Relations, Estate Agency, Fashion Wholesale and Retail, Hospitality and Residential and Home Care.

My clients are based in London, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire, however, support can be provided to clients remotely anywhere in the UK.
