Be one of the first to launch a HR Dept Franchise in Australia. With our established brand and our extensive support, you’ll be one of the first to tap into a growing SME market for outsourced HR support. 


With our support behind you, you’ll be able to get your business to market quicker, and much more cost effectively than by going it alone. But that’s not the only reason HR professionals come to us.


Starting your own business on your own means writing all your own resources, building a website, building a brand, mastering your marketing, the list goes on. With all this to do before any money even starts coming in, you've already forgotten about why you wanted to be your own boss in the first place.


With The HR Dept, we train you in selling, we give you the resources to sell, we give you a professional website, and you’ll have a network of HR professionals to bounce ideas off. All this from day one, meaning you can start offering your customers with practical HR advice and support from the get go.

About us

The HR Dept was started by Founder and Chair, Sue Tumelty (FCIPD & FAHRI) in order to provide local and personal, practical and pragmatic expert HR and employment law advice to small and medium sized businesses.


Having come from a corporate background, Sue found that the hardest part of setting up the business wasn't the HR side of things, but the business aspects and the marketing. So when the original Bristol office began to thrive she began to think about how she could help other HR professionals set up quickly and easily under The HR Dept brand. The HR Dept now has 60 franchisees across the UK supported by an expert head office team that are developing the brand and offering. 


Every year we conduct a customer satisfaction survey that we send out to all of our franchisees customers. Our results are always fantastic, this year 94% of our customers would recommend us and they scored our performance 9.3 out of 10. We also scored an exceptionally high net promoter score of 85.6. 


The HR Dept is now the UK’s largest network of HR professionals providing outsourced HR support to small and medium sized businesses. Their offering to small businesses is unique and vast, nothing like this exists in the Australian market.
