HR2Help is a HR Consultancy and Advice service offered by the firm.
HR2Help are specialists in supporting SME businesses with business-as-usual HR support and guidance. We are also available for one-off projects or employee relations cases.
Our HR Consultants
Our in-house team are experts in their own right; all CIPD qualified and with many years of HR experience. HR2Help offers the unique advantage of working with this exceptional team alongside our Employment Law team.
How our HR Consultants can Help
If you don’t currently have an in-house HR team, the likelihood is that someone else within the business is juggling both roles. We can provide a top flight HR Consultant at a fraction of the cost to employing someone with their skills and experience.
Our HR Consultants have experience in setting up HR functions from scratch so are well-placed to advise clients who know they need some support but may not know exactly what they require. If the time is not right to recruit an in-house HR specialist, then let HR2Help take the burden. Our approach is built upon flexibility. We can work with you on specific projects, on a retained basis or for a defined period. We know that being dynamic and able to respond to rapidly changing business environments is essential to your success.
If you find yourself in a difficult situation with any of your employees, you might be looking for employment law advice. This might be to help you through a redundancy, disciplinary, grievance or needing support with managing absence. An HR2Help HR Consultant can work with you on many employee relations matters, providing a cost effective and broad range of HR services. Our team of HR Consultants can support with administration, development of line managers and wider policy work.
Your HR2Help Consultant will work with you to understand your business and the issue you are facing and agree a plan of action. This will include agreeing how much, or little, you’d like to do yourself. We can provide on-site support and handle the meetings, or be in the background supporting you through each step.
We can help you with:
- Flexible working
We also provide peace of mind that everything we do is carefully documented and all information is handed over to you.
HR2Help can handle more complex issues, knowing that when the need arises, they have a direct line to the employment team at B P Collins LLP, to ensure a seamless process.

If you are an HR Professional, or already have an HR team in-house, we can work with you as an extension of your team for support with projects or employment relations cases.

With the ever-changing employment landscape and challenges faced by businesses, we know how valuable it can be to have a trusted network of peers to bounce ideas off.

Introduction from Jo Davis
I decided that I wanted to set up an HR Consultancy some years ago. I recognised that, while I could advise my clients on what to do and how to do it, I couldn’t help them “on the ground”, so to speak. I am a lawyer and sometimes what my clients needed was an HR manager which, although aligned with employment law, is not the same thing at all.
B P Collins prides itself on building strong, long-lasting relationships with its clients, so that we get to know their business and their culture. In that way, we can ensure our advice is right for each client. I wanted to give our clients the all-round help they needed when dealing with their employees and I identified a gap in our service, which I wanted to plug.
So I set up HR2Help, to show that we were “here to help”, whatever the nature of our client’s employment needs.
HR2Help is independent of B P Collins, while working alongside it. Our HR Consultants are experienced HR professionals, with many years working in many different environments. They help our clients on the ground, from recruitment, change management and staff development to consultation meetings in connection with disciplinary and grievance hearings and restructuring. They provide the practical help that complements our legal advice, ensuring staff are treated fairly while clients achieve their goals.
Like all our services, HR2Help is flexible. Some use it to help when their own HR team are swamped and just need an extra pair of hands for a while. Others use it for a particular project, such as a collective consultation exercise or to assist with change management. Some don’t want to invest in their own HR Manager just yet but need cost-effective specialist HR advice a few days a month to ensure they stay on track. Others need someone impartial to investigate an allegation or to hear an appeal and have exhausted their internal resources.
Whatever our clients’ employment law needs, I am pleased that we now have HR2Help to provide our clients with a seamless, holistic solution.
