Westcountry HR are an Outsourced Human Resources Consultancy covering Devon and Cornwall

The business was started in 2016 and Westcountry HR has since gone from strength to strength.  

HR Director Nicki has previously worked in HR in Exeter, Newton Abbot and Plymouth, Devon and comes with over 15 year’s experience in the HR sector and decided to take the leap from employment to self-employment to follow her dreams and hasn’t looked back.  After working in the sector for some years, Nicki wanted to put all the experience she had gained working for FTSE 100 companies into helping small businesses with a service that SMEs can afford.

When asked to summarise the work Westcountry HR undertake, Nicki commented “For the small business, there are a number of advantages to using a HR Consultant. Instead of hiring an internal HR Manager, you can save money by outsourcing it to a HR Consultant like Westcountry HR. 

Small businesses will often need HR support, but may not have a HR team. A HR Consultant can offer objective, unbiased employment advice and are best placed to advise on the people management that business owners and managers struggle to deal with.”
