We’ve thrown out the standard HR box as it’s rubbish!!

We specialise in helping businesses think differently about HR and strive to create new processes and challenge the way your business is run. This in turn helps create an exciting place to work; somewhere that your staff will be proud of.

When you work with People Pillar, you can sleep at night knowing that your people challenges are taken care of, freeing up time for you to focus on the growth of your business.  Your business isn't too small to need to external HR support.

We provide a full range of pragmatic, commercially focussed HR support including

  • HR Admin and compliance (and systems to reduce as much of this as possible),
  • Day to day advice on things such as recruitment, investigations, and restructures
  • Strategic HR advice to help you grow your business.

Happy Customers

"I cannot speak highly enough about Julia and her team. She has been an immense help to our charity when we were in dire need of H.R. assistance. She has instigated a new HR system with Breathe and sorted out all of our policies and personnel files. We have had many difficulties over the past couple of months and Julia has always been there to help."

Chriss M, CEO

"I've worked with Julia for many years now through restructures, grievance and performance issues. I have always found her to be incredibly knowledgeable, understanding and insightful.
She approaches all situations with a calm integrity and is not afraid to provide much needed challenge and critical thinking to ensure that your chosen path, and her advice to help you along that route, are as robust as possible.
She can always be relied on for trusted, sound advice and is a pleasure to work with."

Caroline H, Director

"I've worked with Julia as Canterbury's Chief Executive since 2006. Having been a HR head of service earlier in my career I know a good HR expert when I see one, and Julia fits the bill. She combines knowledge and experience of really tricky issues with a pragmatic approach that positively helps managers get through their HR problems. She has a reassuring manner that instills confidence. I'm very happy to recommend her."
