Our approach

Our approach is very down to earth and grounded in common sense.  Our consultants, led by MD Nicky Cooksley, have a wealth of experience and are known for providing sound advice, support and guidance on all aspects of HR and employment matters, to help deal appropriately with all the people issues employers may have to face.  There aren't many situations we haven't come across many times before, however the way these are dealt with alters over time because of the never ending changes to employment legislation, new laws, case law findings and of course best practice. 

As experienced HR professionals, we aim to build an in-depth working relationship with our clients and gain a thorough understanding of their business, so it's not surprising that the majority of our clients have been relying on us for many years.

We always try to provide our clients with different options for them to consider when faced with an employment related issue. 

Opening hours & getting in touch

Business hours are Monday to Friday from 8.30am until 6.00pm.  We are available to attend meetings either on line or in person at clients' premises. Advice and support is also available by email, phone or video call and with a quick response time.

Rely Ltd are proud to be members of the Dorchester Chambers of Commerce.
