Connect with The HR Dept

The HR Dept, founded in the UK 14 years ago offers HR professionals the chance to grow their own HR business, offering affordable, practical and pragmatic HR and employment law solutions to small businesses.

The HR Dept was first HR company to franchise and we are still the fastest growing and the market leading HR franchise in the UK and Ireland with over 60 franchisees. The offering to our SME customers is comprehensive and unique and sets our franchisees apart from the competition.

Most of The HR Dept Licensees joined us to escape corporate life, gain flexibility and freedom and spend more time with family whilst building something for themselves. But why not go it alone? Because they can access the offering, sales, marketing and technical support along with the huge resource of the network. They are working for themselves but they are not on their own.

Our model is unlike most franchises; we aim for a collaborative network of HR professionals working in partnership with us to grow the brand.

The HR Dept is extremely excited and positive about the opportunity in Australia. The research done to date, the entrepreneurial and business focused environment and people and the current state of the market leads us to believe that The HR Dept model will be extremely successful in Australia.

About The HR Dept

The HR Dept was started in 2002 by Founder and Chair, Sue Tumelty in order to provide local and personal, practical and pragmatic HR and employment law advice to small and medium sized businesses.

Having come from a corporate background, Sue found that the hardest part of setting up the business wasn’t the HR side of things, but the business aspects and the marketing. So when the original business began to thrive she began to think about how she could help other HR professionals set up quickly and easily under The HR Dept Brand. HR Dept now has 60 franchisees supported by an expert head office team who develop our brand and offering for franchisees.

Every year we conduct a customer satisfaction survey that we send out to all of our franchisees’ customers. Our results are always fantastic, this year 94% of our customers would recommend us and they scored our performance 9.3 out of 10. We also scored an exceptionally high net promoter score of 85.6.

The HR Dept is now the UK’s largest network of HR professionals providing outsourced HR Support to SME local businesses. The offering to SMEs is unique and vast and nothing like this exists in the Australian market.

With our partner we expect to expand the network of HR Dept local offices across Australia and provide local and personal, high quality, cost effective services to the SME market place.

Why partner with us? Experience, expertise and a track record of success

Collectively our team has hundreds of years of HR experience, decades of finance, sales and marketing knowledge, ten years of franchising experience and an unwavering commitment to excellent customer service and to maintaining our place as the market leader. We pride ourselves on our committed and skilled staff and invest in them to professionally develop. We never stand still and are always looking for new ways to fulfil our vision for our customers, and for our own business.

Your next steps
If you are interested in finding out more about this opportunity, please fill in the enquiry form.

The HR Dept are seeking a joint venture partner who would hold the Master Franchisor agreement for the whole of Australia.

The arrangement would include a territory. We envisage the partner would run the Franchise but also run their own HR Dept territory. The idea of this is that it would add credibility and proof that the model works in Australia as well as be another income stream for you. We need you to have experience in HR, have someone you could partner with in HR or employ someone from the outset.
