At cooperativeHR Ltd our aim is to improve the performance of businesses through effective people practices. We know when businesses have the right people, in the right jobs, performing at the right level they achieve.


With our passion, experience (personal and business) and versatility we understand the issues, offer practical solutions and then deliver results through effective people – taking one burden off of you.


We are not a big corporate, we are independent and flexible and we know one size doesn’t fit all so we work closely with business owners and managers to find a solution that fits your business.

If you’re after an ‘off the shelf’ package then we probably won’t be right for you but if you want a local, personal service, embedded into your business who can tailor their packages to meet your culture and needs, with clear, practical advice and action points then you should give us a call – we know we can help.

We think the numbers speak for themselves – and with 87.5% of our business come from referrals we know we don’t need to say much more!

Our Clients Say

Our clients say they work with us because we’re different. We tell them what they can do and not what they can’t do. We are straight talking, no nonsense and provide our clients with a clear plan and/or expert advice when it’s needed on their one off projects or as part of our long term relationship.

We don’t charge for an initial meeting and will even buy the coffee. We are confident we can help you get back on track.
