About Us

Turnstone HR is a human resources consultancy based in the the Lake District. We cover the whole of the North West, from Cumbria to Lancashire and everything in between (and sometimes beyond!), including Barrow-in-Furness, Dalton, Ulverston, Kendal, Penrith, and Lancaster.

From assistance with Employment Law, creating Contracts of Employment, Employee Handbooks, Handling Disciplinary and Grievance Issues, Redundancies, Capability and Performance Issues, Conducting Appraisals, we are here to help.

Our aim is to provide a personal, hands on and cost-effective human resource service to local businesses. Our clients range from building societies, manufacturing companies, care providers, charities and even professional sports clubs.

No matter how diverse the companies are that we work with, our ethos remains the same. We want to provide as many businesses as possible with a custom HR service that will leave them secure, confident and protected, without the added cost of employing an in-house HR expert.

We understand the pressures that businesses face. By taking care of your employment policies and procedures we can help ensure that you have more time to concentrate on running and developing your business.

So, if you think your business could benefit from our expert advice then explore our website, give us a call or send us an email and we will be happy to talk through some business-specific solutions with you.
