Roots HR CIC team

Roots HR CIC

Established in 2009, Roots HR CIC’s vision is to improve social sector outcomes through better people management.

As a social enterprise, our social purpose is to improve the management of people within social sector workforces through the provision of our HR services and via development opportunities for their leaders and managers.

During the financial year 1st April ’22 to 31st March ’23 the Roots HR team worked with over 200 social sector employers, delivering over 4,600 hours of HR consultancy supporting them with their HR needs in what was a turbulent external environment, post-pandemic and through a cost-of-living crisis.

We continue to work in 2023/24 to enhance our pro-bono offerings. In addition to our always available resources such as:
