Helping MP's Work

Why Outsource Your HR?

We know how time consuming recruitment and HR can be, and it’s probably not what you and your team came to Parliament to spend your time focusing on.

Getting it wrong can be costly and disruptive and it’s hard to stretch your staffing budget to find an experienced HR Manager.

By using a centralised service, you can ensure your office fully complies with modern employment practices and prioritise your staffing budget towards Parliamentary and constituency work.

Our independent, professional service will support you to be a good employer and help to raise employment standards across Parliament.

Finding the right people


Recruiting the right people can take a significant amount of time. We can take that task off your hands and make sure the process is fair, open and legally compliant.

Whether you need short term or permanent staff, we will present you with a shortlist of suitable candidates to interview, and then assist you with the necessary paperwork to meet IPSA’s requirements.

Taking the stress away

HR Management Services

We understand just how crucial staff are to the success of an MP’s work, but often the budgets don’t stretch to an experienced HR Manager.

Regular appraisals and performance monitoring start during the probationary period. We can support your staff and help maximise their achievements. And we can be by your side if difficult conversations need to take place.

Optimising Efficiencies

Team Review

An MP’s office team is small, but with a very clear purpose: to support and enhance the MP across a range of areas. A cohesive, vibrant, happy team is undoubtedly a productive and focused one, and regular team reviews help to achieve everyone is moving in the same direction.

Our service offers a bespoke review, with individual and group discussions, to enhance your team and support your work as an MP.

As a new MP in a ‘red wall’ seat, I was faced with the daunting task of setting up a team and establishing an office from scratch when I hadn’t necessarily expected to win. Hive’s support and mentoring has provided me with the structure and experience of an established team and given us the essential tools to navigate the maze of Parliamentary life. I cannot understate the value of investing in Hive’s services or the positive impact their friendly, professional and highly capable team have had on my first few months as an MP.

Chris Clarkson MP
Representing Heywood and Middleton

"Really valuable course, have also been able to ask follow up questions and advice which was really helpful. As a constituency office with caseworkers that have no parliamentary experience this was such a helpful course - if only we'd had it in month one!"

Caseworker Training Candidate

"Really useful sessions, the trainer was great and took the time to talk us in detail about our office protocols and adapting the training to fit"

Bespoke Office Caseworker Training Candidate

"I thoroughly enjoyed the session and although somewhat daunted by the homework task, it pushed me out of my comfort zone and the feedback was invaluable. Overall the session offered excellent value for money and the content was outstanding. Would definitely be interested to learn of any future courses."
