About / Bio

At Black Kat HR we help small and medium sized businesses owners with all their Human Resources and people needs as an outsourced partner. Whether you are taking on employees for the first time or you are an established business with a team in place, we can support you in being a great employer. We can help on an ad-hoc or retainer basis to suit your needs and budget.

What makes us different from other HR Consultancies you may be wondering? We make sure that you have all the help and support you need, delivered in a supportive, friendly and jargon free way...with a little sprinkle of Barnsley honesty and humour.

We can provide you with all documentation needed, bespoke and personalised to your business including the following:
✅ Contracts of employment (permanent full/part time, casual workers, fixed term contracts)
✅ Self Employed Contractor Agreements
✅ Company Handbooks

If you have documents in place already we can review and update them - they quickly become out of date as changes happen in employment law or things change in your business.

We also offer a great value UNLIMITED HR support plan providing business owners with access to a HR specialist whenever needed so you never have to worry when an employee issue crops up that you are unsure how to tackle - just pick up the phone! We can help you deal with such as

✅investigation and disciplinaries
✅long term or frequent absence from work
✅performance reviews and appraisals
✅redundancy and restructuring

We believe that it is better to get advice and get it right, rather than find yourself in an employment tribunal where major damage can be done to both your reputation and your pocket.

I was looking to update my freelancer contracts, i.e. agreements with self-employed contractors, and Kat reviewed my current agreements and gave me advice on what was needed. Kat then produced the Contractor Agreement tailored to my specific requirements.

I can be a difficult customer at times as I am quite picky in my requirements, but Kat coped with this and did an excellent job of producing a Contractor Agreement that was suitable for my needs, and clearly sets out the terms and conditions between the parties.

I would definitely recommend her HR services.

We used Kat's services to create us a bespoke full time employment contract for our business.

The whole process from start to finish was AMAZING.

Her team made sure that the contract was perfect for our requirements and added in aspects that we personally needed in the contract.

Really pleased with the service and would use again and again.

Not only that but she is always on hand for help and advice when needed.

After employing my first staff member I reached out to Kat for advice on what I needed to do next.

Kat was really informative and explained everything needed to not only be legally compliant but to ensure the best protection for not only me but my staff as well.

Kat then produced all the documentation I needed with clear guidance on how to fill it all in, who needed giving what and how to ensure everything was kept up to date.

If you need advice and help with HR definately speak to Kat.
