How We Work With You

Our aim is to provide you with help and assistance when you need it, in the most practical way possible. So if you need a face to face meeting we’re happy to do that, or if it’s simply a quick query by phone or email we’ll respond as soon as we can.

There are three common ways we work with businesses


These are traditional consultancy assignments – you have a particular piece of HR related work and you engage Ariadne Associates to carry it out – for example, a management development project, a job evaluation exercise, or a redundancy programme. It could even be as simple as asking for your employment contracts and staff handbook to be written.


If you need regular advice and support, or have a number of HR issues that need to be tackled, this may be the best solution for your business. You contract for a fixed number of days over a time period and are billed monthly in advance for them. You receive a discounted day rate and have the ability to use the time when you need it. For example, if you needed 6 days support over 6 months, you would be billed one day per month. You could use the time when you required during the six months – you might use 2-3 days one month and nothing the following month.

Pay As You Go

This option is only for very small organisations (20 or fewer staff). It allows them to get occasional ad-hoc advice without being tied in to a formal agreement – the organisation is only billed when it has used up half a day or a day’s worth of time.


As the overwhelming majority of our clients are smaller organisations we charge a very competitive £550 per day – with discounted rates for charities and those on retainer. Contact us for full details
