Battersby HR Consulting is a trading name of PJ Battersby & Associates Limited, owned and operated by Paddy and Heather Battersby, Auckland, New Zealand, and was established in 1999 to provide specialist HR consulting services.

In 2004 was founded as a natural extension of PJ Battersby & Associates' HR services to provide employment services specific to the wine industry from a jobs board, employment information, HR documentation, OSH systems and the like. The online wine jobs service simplifies the beginning of the employment process - providing a vital recruitment tool.

With national clients across a wide number of industries, we work with companies of all sizes and across all business sectors. Looking after the people side of the business is often added to an extensive list of duties that have to be performed by the owner or manager who is already very busy with other areas of the business. Battersby HR helps employers with all their HR needs - providing expertise to navigate the potential minefield of employment law.

"My passion (after wine and golf) is people, and helping employers identify and implement practical Human Resource procedures to get the most out of your staff - guiding you on the boring and compliance bits of employment so you can spend your time on the part of the business that you do best." - Paddy Battersby
