Sometimes larger organisations in the public and private sector just need an extra pair of hands for a short period of time.  Of course, you can always get someone from an agency but you could also deal with us direct giving your organisation the flexibility that it needs.

It may be that you just need an extra pair of hands for a day or two or perhaps for a day a week. Or maybe you have a project that needs to be implemented against a tight deadline. We will be as flexible as you need.


If your organisation is downsizing, perhaps due to a reorganisation or a diversification, there is an increased workload for your HR staff for the duration of the project.

There are a range of things to do.  For example generating selection criteria, undertaking group and individual consultations, offering redeployments, supporting those who are leaving the organisation and those suffering from ‘remainer syndrome’.

This can be a very labour intensive time for your HR department and a short term extra pair of hands can be utilised in a range of ways.

How we can help

We can help in whatever way you need.  Advice and guidance; just a sounding board; someone to do the consultations for you; someone to keep the HR department afloat whilst your own staff undertake the redundancy workload. The permutations are many and varied.  Talk to us and see how we can help in both the public and private sector.

Acquisitions and Mergers

Merging with another organisation and the application of TUPE Regulations is a time consuming and rigorous piece of work for HR staff. This workload often comes as an addition to the daily work of an HR Department.

If you are merging with a substantial organisation, due diligence alone can take many hours of concentrated work.  And then there is all the consultation to be done. Whether you are acquiring another organisation or being acquired by another organisation consultation with staff is a statutory requirement.

Helping hands

We can be the extra pair of hands you need to support your own HR Department in whatever way is most helpful.

Employee Handbooks, Policies & Procedures

Every organisation needs to update its handbook, policies and procedures from time to time as employment law changes or is clarified by case law.  We can help you undertake that task, writing in plain English and consulting or negotiating if you recognise a trade union for collective bargaining purposes.

If you would like us to, we will also equality impact assess your policies and procedures to ensure they do not inadvertently disadvantage staff on the grounds of any protected characteristic.

We have worked with Brenda Roper for several years. Our concerns have mainly related to unsatisfactory employee performance and attendance. With Brenda's guidance we terminated the employees contracts without the employee taking any action against us. Brenda’s guidance and precision were invaluable. We have also been the recipients of the regular stream of technical advice of personnel matters relating to legislative changes and tribunal decisions which she provides, ensuring we are able to manage staff professionally.

One of the best courses I have had the privilege to attend. Brenda Roper is an excellent trainer and makes the training interesting whilst ensuring the delegates receive all the correct information whilst also being able to relate it to their circumstances and talk about specific issues

Brenda was really helpful when we needed to better understand how maternity pay works, and she came to help us at very short notice
Rita Tinney, Director Keats Estate Agents & Keats Letting Ltd
Excellent and engaging trainer who facilitated conversation and learning through working in groups and discussion nicely. Clearly knew subject matter inside out, held pace and delivery of session well - thoroughly enjoyable training
Equality & Inclusion Matters Course attendee
As a SME, we felt our most cost-effective option was to outsource our HR requirements and in B&D Roper we have found an excellent business partner who fully understands the increasingly complex minefield that is HR legislation and is able to communicate that in lay terms to those of us who don’t. Brenda has been able to provide a wealth of expertise in the type of issues that all small businesses encounter from time to time.
Jill Ford, Director, Dramco Ltd
Brenda provided our Non Executive Board of Directors with a factual yet pragmatic evaluation of both legal and cultural issues with some shocking revelations. She navigated her way through some very unsavoury conduct which eventually led to exposing fiduciary breaches from our own Board of Directors amongst other HR issues. As a direct result of her investigation we were able to bring about a change management programme. I personally recommend Brenda Roper to any organisation seeking a professional, experienced and efficient advisor to a wide range of HR matters.
