Meet the Team
Su Allen HR was established in 2002 to meet the needs of small and medium sized businesses without a Human Resources department of their own.
Our intention from the outset was to offer a full range of flexible HR services designed around the specific needs of an individual business and that philosophy remains today. We don’t provide “template” solutions and we never will.
Our approach to each project is simple, honest and direct. We tell it like it is so you know exactly where you stand. There’s nothing woolly about our advice!
We have considerable experience across a wide range of industries including education, elderly residential care, care in the community, children’s care, manufacturing, facilities management, construction, retail, accountancy, design, IT, hair and beauty, hospitality, charities…and more.
On top of all that, we’re very nice people too! Find out more about our team below:
