Start My HR Happiness


Here at Develop we have responsibility for placing Milton Keynes school students in work experience placements with local employers and Russell HR Consulting recently hosted a student of The Hazeley Academy as Administration Assistant. This gave the student an insight into Human Resources and their duties included preparing presentation packs, reviewing the website and updating links and researching items for Twitter. We very much appreciate Russell HR Consulting’s involvement in providing practical and relevant work experience for our future workforce and look forward to a continuing relationship.

HR for Builders Merchants

Russell HR Consulting has been providing HR support to a timber merchants, builders merchants, plumbers merchants and stone merchants since 2008. Working with single and multi-site companies who need practical HR advice, we’ve seen it all. We have advised on drunk and drugged drivers, workers who have climbed the racking, pilfering employees, and plenty who suffer from chronic Monday-itis! On one occasion, we have even sacked an MD’s son-in-law (ouch – but it had to be done).

  Chris West, Director, West Building Supplies describes what it’s like working with us:
  Without doubt it is extremely comforting to know we can turn to Russell HR with our human resource and employment issues. This year has not been too bad but perhaps it is like an insurance or having the umbrella with you on the golf course – it never rains until the first time you forget it!


So that we fully understand your business all our team have at various time put on their hi-vis vests and safety boots and taken to the yard to get to know exactly what problems our clients face, what their employees respond to and how best to make sure the human resources advice we give works well for you.
