The Team

Who We Are


NEIL BUCK – Director & Lead HR Consultant – m: 07748 153550 HR Management Services Company based in Lincoln.

After getting my Law degree and Diploma in Law at Uni I found myself starting out on my HR career journey more by accident than design! I cut my teeth in HR in a fast paced go-getting privately owned finance house (who would believe one of those even existed in rural Lincs?!) and basically taught myself along the way. It was a steep learning curve but one I ultimately benefitted from. After a few years that company closed down so I joined a Housing Association as their Head of HR. The experience gained in both roles gives me an all rounded invaluable insight into how both sectors work in practice.


I then decided to gain my MSc (Masters) in Human Resource Management to understand the theory behind the practice and it was the final year dissertation subject that convinced me to set up my own HR consultancy business in 2006. The rest as they say is history.


I am an experienced and CIPD qualified HR Consultant who focuses on the commercial and practical application of the employment relationship – ensuring organisations are legally compliant and you are able to manage your staff in the most suitable way possible. Providing a one-stop shop of HR services for SMEs, I am sensitive and responsive to your employment needs.


My professionalism is combined with a ‘down to earth’ honest approach and a sense of humour which helps build strong, sound relationships quickly. I like to find solutions in the interests of employers when they are challenged with a particular employment problem.


Supporting a diverse range of employers including those in:

  • Construction
  • Professional Services
  • Engineering
  • Manufacturing
  • Farming / Agriculture
  • Healthcare
  • Retail
  • Tourism
  • ‘Not-for-Profit’ & Charities

I work closely with the CEO / MD / Directors (HR, Ops & FD’s) / Proprietor or Senior Management Teams of micro to small-medium sized employers, providing bespoke advice and appropriate documentation on a one-off project or retained basis.


Examples of assignments undertaken for the hundreds of clients I have worked with since 2006 include:

  • Advising on employment law rights, obligations and compliance issues on a daily basis;
  • Drafting and advising on employment contracts, handbooks, policies & procedures;
  • Managing redundancy programmes from start to finish including outplacement & counselling services;
  • Advising on disciplinary & grievance issues, through to dismissal;
  • Organising & delivering sessions on performance appraisals;
  • Advising on how to reduce absenteeism and long term sickness;
  • Setting up recruitment initiatives, attending interviews, conducting personality profiling reports;
  • Delivering training seminars and workshops to SMT's and business groups e.g. redundancy, employment law, discipline and grievance etc
  • Coaching individuals in HR Management

On a personal level away from work to relax I like to watch films or sport and reading crime thrillers. I try to keep fit to fight the flab and enjoy undertaking personal challenges that are out of my normal comfort zone (Mt. Kilimanjaro, the London Marathon being the biggest so far, the next on the list is the C2C Way of ​Roses 170 mile cycle ride in 2017) and generally spending time with my wife, young daughter and black lab — all of whom wear me out mentally and physically!!
