Experienced HR Directors

Commercially-focused, pragmatic employee relations advice from a hand-selected CIPD-qualified HR Director with 10+ years of experience managing these issues for SME’s.

Advice on Difficult Issues

Advice on performance management, disciplinaries, grievances, TUPE, redundancies, short-time working, pay reductions, maternity & paternity pay, absence & sickness and more.

Hands-on Guidance

Having personally seen these issues play out many times before, our HR Directors will coach you on how best to deliver the communication and offset any potential risks, rather than merely reciting employment law to you.

Resolve Issues Efficiently

HR professionals understand the broader people implications of decisions and can resolve the vast majority of HR issues without the need for an expensive employment lawyer.

Feedback from our clients about their experience with their Snippet HR professional

“Natashia is one of those rare gems – a thoroughly professional and wholly empathetic independent HR specialist, who is worth her weight in gold to small and growing businesses and they look to scale up and grow.”

“As a small company without a dedicated HR manager, I found Natashia’s HR expertise immensely helpful as we transformed our business. Specifically we engaged with Natashia to oversee the transfer of staff between companies, review and update all HR documents, policies and procedures in line with legislation, and finally to evaluate several different approaches to direct recruitment. Everything was completed as expected, and importantly the staff transfer completed without a hitch. I’m happy to recommend Natashia and would work with her again.”


Will all issues discussed on the call remain confidential?

Yes, all of our HR Partners sign a confidentiality agreement and you can find a copy of our T&C’s here.

Will I be supported by the same HR Partner each call?

Yes, you have the option to receive advice from the same person each time as long as they are continuing to work via Snippet. Alternatively, if you wish to switch to another HR Partner we can arrange that at your request.

How does usage-based-billing work?

Our HR Partners will complete timesheets detailing time spent supporting you. You will then receive an itemised invoice and have 3 working days to dispute any discrepancies before GoCardless automatically charge your account.

How do I cancel usage-based-billing?

You will only ever be charged for what you have used so, in effect, by not scheduling any further sessions you will be discontinuing the service. That said, if you’d like to completely cancel the Direct Debit and remove your file please just contact us at team@snippet.hr

Is the advice insured?

All of our HR Partners operate through their own Consultancy Ltd company and have professional indemnity insurance. You can read our full terms & conditions here.

Why should I use Snippet over other options?

Snippet advice is provided by highly-experienced HR professionals (10+ years) as opposed to call centre-based, inexperienced HR advisors who generally have 3-4 years’ of predominently theory-based experience.

What kind of topics can I get advice on?

Here at Snippet, we offer a full range of HR advice on topics including (but not limited to):

  • Redundancy
  • Performance management / poor performance
  • Employee wellbeing / mental health at work
  • Employment contract revisions
  • Restructures / restructuring
  • Employee dismissal
