MELCC welcome their newest Premier Partner!

1st May 2018

Midlothian and East Lothian Chamber is delighted to announce their newest Premier Partner, The HR Dept. Led locally by Ian Pilbeam, The HR Dept is one of the UK’s leading HR providers and has a team of local, business focussed Human Resources and Health & Safety experts across Midlothian and East Lothian. Businesses receive peace of mind that they are employing their people and managing their health & safety well, saving them money, reducing hassle, and adding to the bottom line.

Ian started his business four years ago in his back bedroom in Dunbar. The fast expanding team now supports hundreds of local businesses across the Lothians and turnover is doubling year on year.  Adding services such as Health & Safety, recruitment and career coaching into the range of services has further expanded the ways in which The HR Dept is helping the local business community.
Ian Pilbeam said, “One of the first steps I took when I started The HR Dept Edinburgh & the Lothians was to join the Chamber of Commerce and it has proved to be a great decision. Four years on it is a natural next step to become a Premier Partner with the Chamber. We are excited about the possibilities that this new partnership will bring, and how it will benefit the local business community.”
Mid & East Lothian Chamber Chief Executive, George Archibald commented, “This is a superb achievement from one of our valued members. The HR Dept Edinburgh & The Lothians has seen significant growth through their unique offering and we are excited to be part of their ongoing success. Ian and his team have over the years, provided SMEs and organisations with locally-based, personal and practical HR and H&S advice and support. They have also offered Chamber members a free HR / H&S health check and special rates for HR and H&S advice.”

“The new Premier Partner collaboration will further enhance the Chamber’s objectives in helping businesses in Midlothian and East Lothian to grow, and add more value to Chamber membership.”
