HRNet - Tailored HR advice

Our online service, HRNet, enables you to submit questions on employment matters and receive tailored advice from HR professionals. 


Management Consultancy

Our management consultancy provides one to one support on a wide range of management issues. It is normally delivered face to face by our volunteer consultants.  At present, we are working to offer remote consultancy support, by phone or Skype. 

If you need support over the next few weeks and months to review your future plans, take a hard look at your financial position and plan ahead, or cover any other management issues, get in touch about a free consultancy project.

As a charity leader or manager you may find it helpful to work with a mentor to find your way through a very challenging time. Cranfield Trust trains and introduces volunteer mentors to charity leaders – call us if you would like to learn more about working with a mentor. Mentors and mentees normally meet every month, but mentoring can take place remotely via Skype or phone in the current circumstances.
