Helping Your Business Stay HR Compliant


Sandra Blake

Chartered MCIPD
HR Expert

I am a people professional based in Birmingham with 17 years of generalist Human Resources (HR) experience. I have seen and heard a lot over the years so I am familiar with the challenges faced by companies that don’t have a dedicated HR department or who need extra HR support.

Such businesses just want to get on with their day jobs without breaking HR ‘rules’ but often find themselves held back by the task of trying to understand HR legislation.  


Our Services

I provide remote HR advice and solutions based on your specific requirements, including matters relating to:
Employees and Workers
Contract Terms and Conditions
Legislative changes

Part time workers, fixed term contract workers, apprentices and more.

Contract types, forming an employment contract, Express and Implied terms and more.

Statutory rates, forthcoming legislation and more.

Why Choose BlakeHR?

People are an organisation’s greatest asset and therefore a huge investment, so it is really important to realise a return on recruitment activity as early as possible and to keep the momentum going throughout the employee lifecycle. 


Helping to support employers to deal proactively with any people issues, no matter how small they seem, ensures a harmonious relationship between employer and employee, preventing these small issues from developing into bigger, more time-consuming and expensive ones. As a commercially focused HR practitioner I am able to provide pragmatic advice to help drive your business to achieve its goals, ensuring you stay HR compliant and retain a motivated workforce.
