Cleaver Fulton Rankin has expanded its successful Employment Department by adding HR consultancy to its range of market-leading services.

The new department, which will operate under CFR HR, will combine HR consultancy with more complex legal employment advice.

According to Cleaver Fulton Rankin Director Michael Black the launch of the new expanded service is a direct response to Northern Ireland businesses and organisations who want a ‘one-stop shop’ provider of HR consultancy and legal employment advice.

“Because of our partnership approach with clients, we found that when they come to us with legal employment issues, we’ve often been able to assist with more traditional Human Resource Management tasks as they arise.  We’ve also seen growth in the HR consultancy sector, with an increased promise of legal expertise which regrettably often can’t be delivered.

“As we are already providing this combined service for a few longstanding clients, we thought it would be a natural step to formally brand this service and offer our combined HR and legal skills to companies who are looking for a ‘one stop shop’ for their HR management needs.”

Scott Higginson from Four Star Pizza said: “Michael and his team have been invaluable in the whole area of Human Resources.  We have been expanding our franchise network, building our business and with that comes increased challenges in managing a growing workforce day by day.  The team at Cleaver Fulton Rankin has helped us navigate every element of our HR requirements and to know that there is an expert at the end of the phone is very reassuring.”

Roisin Foster, Chief Executive of Cancer Focus Northern Ireland said: “Cleaver Fulton Rankin have been legal advisors to Cancer Focus NI since our founding in 1969 and throughout that period, we have benefitted from CFR’s advice and expertise in matters of charity and company law, reputational risk, property law, human resources and employment law.  The team is extremely well informed and we have found them unfailingly responsive to enquiries. Above all, we have confidence that when we approach the CFR Human Resources team their advice will always be in the very best interests of our charity.”

CFR HR can manage redundancy and restructuring situations; carry out health checks on policies and procedures to minimise risk and exposure to problems down the line; carry out investigation work; and manage disciplinary processes.

Michael Black concludes: “We are very excited about CFR HR and feel that this combination of HR Services and legal advice provides the perfect solution for the complex needs of companies in today’s fast moving business environment.”
