PLP HR Advisory services

The corona virus outbreak has brought multiple challenges and the PLP HR team has been actively advising and supporting schools over the past few weeks to help tackle many new and existing employment issues. We are closely monitoring the fast changing response to the virus and information being released by Government and its agencies so that the advice we give is based on the latest position. Relevant information and updates will be emailed out on an ongoing basis.

We will be ensuring schools are able to continue to access up to date advice and support from the HR team whenever it is needed. All members of the team will be contactable during and outside normal working hours. In addition the team will be contactable throughout school holiday periods.

Should issues arise that require HR support we will be happy, in accordance with the latest relevant guidance and instruction, to provide input via telephone, email, Skype or other audio/video media platform. You should not hesitate contacting the team for any advice information and support you may need.

Contact details for team members are as follows;
