My highlight of being in The Network is looking back at what we've created over the years. I've tried to create a business that I would like to be employed by and that's what's really special!"

Start your own HR business with The HR Dept

The HR Dept offers a rewarding franchise opportunity for HR professionals looking to start their own HR business without going it alone.

Since 2002, we’ve been providing outsourced HR support to SMEs across the UK and now operate over 120 territories nationwide. With territories still available, we’re looking to help more HR professionals become their own boss and join our network of HR Dept business owners.

Being an HR Dept licensee allows you to showcase your ability and become the ‘go-to’ person in your area. You’ll also benefit from choosing your own work schedule and environment as well as diversity, financial rewards and meaningful networks.

Joining the franchise allows you to build a business based on your goals and lifestyle. Whether you want to be a solo licensee with one territory or whether you want to build your own team and purchase multiple territories, the choice is down to you because we understand success looks different to everyone.

Find out more in an upcoming discovery event or request an initial call using the form below.

We host regular virtual and in-person discovery events for HR professionals which are free of charge. Our next in person event will be held in Leeds where you’ll have the opportunity to meet a local licensee, Sarah Bradley.
