HR retainers and employment law advice

People management can be tricky and time consuming, and employment law a minefield to navigate. Even with an in-house HR team in place, access to diverse HR talent and knowledge through a retainer keeps things running smoothly and provides reassurance that help is at hand when things get complicated.

Keystone's HR retainer packages can help take some of the hassle and stress out of people management. Our dedicated team of school experts are here to provide qualified, personalised assistance whenever you need it, from safer recruitment advice to casework and employment law practice. 

Our HR retainers offer:
  • On-site reviews

  • Document bank

As part of our HR retainer offering we provide access to our document template bank, curated by school and trust HR experts.
