HR advice line

People are a vital component of running any small business and it's important that employers get quality advice about human resource (HR) issues. That's why the Guild provides a HR advice line as an exclusive member-only service.

The service enables members to get the answers they need to most general HR issues. These can usually be resolved in a few minutes over the phone or by email. For more serious issues members will be advised that they need to seek further advice which is not covered by the advice line. For the Guild's HR advice line call 0800 484 347 or email

Legal advice line

Legal issues can be complicated, and potentially serious and frightening. However, getting quality legal advice before issues become serious problems is important for any small business. With the Guild’s legal advice line, we can offer our members this option. Members can now run any legal queries past a qualified lawyer. Something you may not have done in the past due to concerns about cost.

Guild members can access 10 minutes of free legal advice per month. This is perfect for any member wanting to check something with a lawyer before they do it.
