Public & Third Sector

Business Launch2Outset is committed to working closely with the public and third sectors to deliver value for money and excellence. In additional to supporting local authorities, government agencies and larger not for profit organisations, Outset has created support packages for schools, academies and charities that deliver excellent support often well below the cost of alternates.


Supporting Local Government

Regularly advising HR and Legal departments within local government, we understand well the regulatory framework and governance requirements. In consultation with a number of local authorities, we have created support arrangements aimed at offering flex to HR and Legal departments, whilst allow full governance oversight. Few local authorities can justify internally retaining the depth of local government employment law expertise that we hold. Hard pressed legal teams are handling a wide variety of work. Therefore, we have created the following support arrangements:

Employment Tribunal – Cost effective, structured support with online access for the authority’s HR and Legal teams to the key documents. This allows oversight without duplication, logging in to review progress without being swamped by emails.
Retained Support – for a modest fee local authorities can have access to a package of support including:

  • Online Settlement Agreement service allowing creation of settlement agreements by the local authority. Accessible by HR and Legal, using a regularly updated form of document agreed with you, certain amendments require legal sign-off, others can be made without sign-off. You decide.
  • Online document access to your key employment materials and union agreements. Always available in a highly secure environment.
  • Local Authority employment law update seminars, twice yearly
  • Option to purchase fixed price employment law advice or receive a discounted hourly rate

Supporting Agencies & Not for Profits

Experience tells us that understanding your governance structure and internal resources is key to creating a resource solution that delivers cost effective quality to you. This tends to lead to agreeing a package of support with you which is similar to that for Local Government or Mid-Sector businesses.

Supporting Colleges Schools Academies and Charities

We are both committed to and experienced in supporting educational and charitable bodies in both employment law and HR.

Depending on your scale and internal resource we can agree a package of support with you which will deliver excellent value. In some cases it can even be underpinned by insurance against employment tribunal claims.

We would love to talk through your requirements and look how we can save you money. In most cases, support will be very similar to that for either Mid-sector or Smaller businesses.
