HR support

Woman explaining something to another woman

We offer our members unique access to the best support from some of the UK’s leading advisers on co‑operative HR. 

What HR support is available?

We know the type and amount of support you need will depend on where you are as a business. We offer three different levels of HR support to Co-operatives UK members. 

Contact package

For just £225 per annum you can contact us up to 10 times a year with a question or query. As well as HR advice, you can use this package for support with governance, finance and membership too. And you can use your 10 contacts in any way that suits you. For example: 

  • Asking us to review a new employment contract template
  • Clarifying the process if one of your members has raised a grievance (complaint)
  • Finding out more about your HR requirements when you employ a new member of staff
  • Understanding how to deal with a disciplinary in your co-operative

You can also choose to use more than one contact at a time if you have a particularly complicated issue. Discover more about how the contact package can help your co-op.

What else can I use the contact package for?

It is wonderful to be able to get legal advice without having to explain our co-operative structure, this saves time and energy and feels very supportive.
