How we are different

The People Pool delivers a coordinated business solution that is fully flexible to your needs.

HR and employment law

A winning combination

Whether integrating legal professionals with HR expertise in a project team or providing a single consultant, The People Pool delivers a coordinated business solution that is fully flexible to your needs.

This may be for a specific section of a larger project you are working on or we can implement the whole project at a fixed price. In short, we can deliver as much or as little as you choose with no job being too big or too small.

We are confident we have a solution to match your requirements, so contact us to discuss your issues free of charge.

Team fit

The People Pool consultants work in partnership with your HR, legal team or Board to fully understand the purpose and objectives of the work or project to be completed.

They also understand because they have been in your shoes, tasked with delivering objectives that you came to us with. We don't engage consultants who have only ever worked as consultants - they all have extensive experience in substantive roles. 

They work within budget and to the risk profile you select. You’ll find our people are easy to work with and can work alongside you and your own teams efficiently and effectively.

Fully supported

You can rest assured our consultants will deliver. They are fully supported by DAC Beachcroft LLP and provided with:

  • access to the same training, know-how and precedents as our Employment and Pensions team;
  • access to our forum of over 100 HR experts and lawyers – there’s not much collectively we haven’t already seen or dealt with before; and
  • appropriate supervision so that you know you are receiving work of the highest quality and in a manner that you have agreed to.

A service for everyone

The People Pool is for everyone – there are no hard and fast rules. If you are an employer in the UK and have a HR or employment related issue, from a one off disciplinary interview to a multi-national change management programme, we can help. Just contact us and we’ll discuss with you how we can help resolve your issues.


We provide flexible pricing options which work for you. These include:

  • Fixed prices (whether for whole projects or stages within them);
  • Day and part day rates;
  • Retainers; and
  • Hourly rates.
