Supporting the charity sector is something that we pride ourselves in as we actively partake in fundraising for local charities ourselves.

The charity sector can be quite complex, especially on the HR and Employment Law side of things, as you often find yourself taking on volunteers and zero-hour contract staff, as well as full time employees, which requires knowledge across the various laws for all types of employment.

It can be a challenge for employers within the charity sector to understand and keep up to date with legislation but, with the help of our HR experts, we can ensure that you remain compliant at all times.

We have supported many charities and non-profit organisations through Birmingham and the rest of the UK. In fact, this sector makes up the most of our current client database so we have full confidence and plenty of experience when working with employers in this industry.

Professional HR support for Charities

With Guardian Support, you will be assigned a named HR Consultant who has experience within the charity sector. We will ensure that every single one of your employees is treated fairly and in compliance with current employment law so that you can focus on running your charity and growing your organisation.

Our professional HR experts understand many of the unique challenges that charities face when it comes to fundraising and funding cycles/streams and we tailor our services to each client to ensure that they avoid any unexpected costs and are getting the best value for money without compromising on the quality, or extent, of the support.

We are also experts in the area of TUPE so can provide detailed advice should this scenario occur within your organisation.

If required, we can also assist with any health and safety issues that are common within the third sector such as keeping risk assessments up to date, making sure that members of the public and volunteers are safe on site and providing all of the appropriate training to your workers.
Our pragmatic approach to health and safety means that we assess workplace risks in order of priority to ensure the utmost safety of everyone on your premises.

Your duty of care extends beyond those that you are helping in the community and should start with the people being employed by you, so give them the best support that you can by outsourcing the services of a HR expert.

Call us today on 0845 2626 260 to discuss your needs and learn more about our available packages and prices.

Testimonial from a charity

“Running a small charity has its challenges, I work in the voluntary sector which also employs staff. Working in a mixed environment brings its challenges when it comes to employment issues.

How do you know your staff policies are up to date or when someone is genuinely in need of support or just shirking?

The support the Guardian Support team provide is like having a whole HR team at your fingertips, always there to guide you through those difficult and at time delicate staffing issues. Jake and the team are always at hand on the other end of the phone or email.

Guardian Support is my Guardian Angel!”
