I certainly have no regrets at all, it's the best thing I ever did. I kind of wish I'd done it sooner."

Have you ever thought about running your own business?

We have supported over 70 HR professionals across the UK, Ireland and Australia who’d previously held jobs as HR Directors or Managers, start their own businesses. If you are a strong, motivated HR professional with the drive and energy to succeed, we can provide the stepping stone to help you build your own business.

We want people to enjoy building their own HR Dept business and thrive in an environment where they can use their HR knowledge to become their own boss. At The HR Dept we aim to create an atmosphere of honesty and openness, focusing on the needs of our clients whilst maintaining a culture of fun.

Become your own boss

Without going it alone

Are you considering becoming your own boss, with all the self fulfilment (and, yes, challenges) that it brings? At The HR Dept, we can provide you with the opportunity to do just that, but with lots of support. It all depends on your circumstances, your goals and ultimately your drive. For some, being their own boss is all they’ve ever wanted. For others it may be as simple as craving more time to spend with family by losing the daily commute. Whatever the reason, be assured that your HR skills are in high demand!

Benefit from a friendly

collaborative Network of HR professionals

You alone will reap the rewards of your work, but the 250+ network of licensees and their staff will be behind you to help you do the best job possible, just as you’d be there to support them. We always say that with The HR Dept you work FOR yourself, but never BY yourself.

Invaluable access to

advice, training & resources

The HR Dept provide you with the support you need every step of the way, from the initial set up of your business and beyond. We provide you with all the relevant training you need during your induction and as well as drawing on the expertise of our external sales, PR and accountancy experts, we also have a dedicated Central Office team who are there to provide you with consistent marketing, operational and legal support once you are running your own HR Dept territory.

Join Us for an Upcoming

Virtual Discovery Event

We run regular virtual events to help HR professionals evaluate our franchise offering better. After this, if you're interested in progressing, we will invite you down to our Head Office in Bristol to meet the Senior Leadership Team and arrange for you to speak with a licensee to hear about their experience first hand.
