Employment Law and HR Support.jpg

Welcome to Square Peg HR - an independent Scottish based employment law and HR consultancy dedicated to providing an exceptional service to clients across Scotland and the UK. Your organisation can expect the highest quality advice and professional solutions, without the highest prices.


From recruitment to retirement, Square Peg can help with all of your HR support requirements. 

Founded by employment lawyer Frances McAulay and business consultant Carolyn Hughes, Square Peg HR specialises in helping small businesses and charities navigate through the sometimes-choppy waters of the world of employing staff! Perhaps you’re a small company, just on the cusp of employing someone for the first time? Or maybe you’ve grown a bit but don’t quite have the numbers of staff to justify an HR team?  Maybe you’ve got an expanding team and now looking to implement more structured processes and procedures? We can help.

Square Peg HR has the support package that can suit your business and your budget. We offer both fixed price monthly fee packages and ‘pay as you go’ options, depending on the needs of your organisation.

Working with an organisation, like Square Peg, who understands the needs and challenges of a charity is so refreshing. They have taken the time to get to know us as an organisation, and tailor their service to meet our needs, where often with larger HR companies we need to “fit their service”.
