HR for Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs)

Access to quality HR isn’t just for big businesses. We understand how crucial every penny is for small to medium sized companies.

“Hunter100” was created to address the people needs of the SME market at an affordable rate, without sacrificing the quality.

The expertise and knowledge of our HR team comes from working in a variety of sectors.

Hunter100 is a flexible, no nonsense, face-to-face HR service to tackle any people issues affecting your business.

Hunter100 is for businesses with around 100 people (we’re pretty flexible on the number of staff).

HR support is not just for large corporate firms. In fact in small companies it’s even more important that each and every employee is engaged to deliver. We actively discount our rates for SME firms when they secure a ‘bank of hours’ that they can call off against on an ad-hoc basis.

Our approach is to build a relationship with you (face-to-face when necessary) to deal with those issues which are preventing you from focusing on the business. For those who want to get ahead we can help you to create a workplace culture that will mean your staff want to stay for years ahead.

All of our services are available to our SME clients.


We work with over 150 SME clients over the UK in over 20 sectors. Each of their needs is different. They may want the basics; contracts of employment, employment policies or support to deal with an employee complaint or performance issue. What we promise is to offer commercial no nonsense advice. We will not tie you up in policy and process.

We do not sell employment tribunal insurance. Our aim is that with our advice we will prevent you ending up in a tribunal. We will also not make you jump through 20 hoops when you need to deal with a problem in your company. We will however ensure you work in line with employment legislation but will be solutions focused to help you get the outcome you want.

So no tie in contracts; no retainers, no tribunal insurance – just commercial no nonsense HR to help you make the decisions you have to make to grow your company.
