Experience really matters in HR. Years in high profile corporate companies and SME organisations has allowed us to understand how to bring measurable, practical people solutions that help you and your organisation achieve real results.
Based in North Sydney and working nationally and internationally, we help SMEs, corporates and individuals to solve their people issues and manage their people related projects. We can partner with existing HR teams to ensure they are focused on the right things and structured in a way to achieve that.
We offer a part or fully outsourced HR solution if you just want someone else to “make it all go away”. We also partner with individuals looking for some external HR support or advice, specific to their current circumstance. From dealing with redundancy, coaching and mentoring, or orchestrating a specific desired outcome. Sometimes, you just want to know: “Can they really do this to me?”
Our Principal Consultant is responsible for overseeing every piece of work produced for each client.
No, there’s no place stacked with stuffy HR people, pumping out mindless policies and quoting employment law barriers in the way of a new idea. We are a small and agile group that allows Mel to be involved with her sleeves well and truly up. We are passionate about the HR stuff, so you can afford not to be.
High quality, tailored, results-driven solutions are our guarantee.
We work with SME’s and big businesses to provide human resources and payroll support and solutions. We can provide internal support or a fully outsourced solution.
We also work with individuals to navigate various employment challenges faced as an objective third party.
Our coaching and mentoring for HR professionals are also incredibly popular.
Mel strives to understand the broader objectives an organisation is facing, understanding that HR is just one cog of many. She gets the job done and she has some fun along the way. Most clients come to her via recommendations. Mel also loves working with individuals looking for some external HR support or advice specific to their current circumstance. That could be dealing with redundancy, coaching and mentoring or orchestrating a specific desired outcome. It’s often as easy as answering
“Can they really do this to me?”
Part of the reason for starting this business was to be able to be share & put something real back into the discipline of consulting.

So help me put the heart back into HR!
Yours in gratitude,
Mel delivered the opening Keynote at my Strengths Based Leadership Conference and scored one of the highest ratings for her presentation on Values-based Principles. Next, to her expertise in all matters related to Human Resources and Organisational Development, she is a pleasure to work with, as her positive energy and professional enthusiasm are highly contagious. She is an open-minded professional with the ability to change the game while keeping the players on the field.

Melinda’s positive profile and contribution to the HR community has matured exponentially in the past 10 years. She continually demonstrates high integrity in interactions and has the terrific ability to be both warm and frank. Melinda is someone who takes commitment seriously and wouldn’t take one on without giving her full. She is a pleasure to work and spend time with.
"Thank you for providing us at Mr AV with such amazing support throughout our challenging time as a small business. Mel, your professionalism, invaluable advice, experience and expertise was greatly appreciated as is our ongoing relationship."

If you are looking for a genuine HR ‘’partner’’ that will help you to resolve your HR problems and make an impact in your organisation or for your personal situation, I would not hesitate to recommend Mel. Mel is a pleasure to do business with. She is driven by the rare mix of professional, ethical and strong personal values. I have no doubt that Agile People Partners will continue to offer valuable advice and HR solutions in the years to come
Mel from Agile People Partners is a highly capable and reliable HR professional who has helped our business over the last 18 months take our HR function and People strategies to the next level.
We have engaged with Mel under a number of models over the time she worked with us.
Initially, she came onboard as an interim on-site part-time HR Manager whilst we went through a period of rapid business growth. During this time she fostered enduring relationships with the management team as well as the greater operational community. Mel mentored our junior HR professional who is now undertaking tertiary qualifications in HR and seeking to further pursue a career as an HR professional. Mel drove a number of HR projects for our business including our people development and mentoring program, scoping and commencing implementation of an HRIS, streamlining and updating our employee contracts and participating in a number of working groups and committees around Culture, Attrition, EVP and visa/sponsorships.
Shortly after this, we utilised the Agile People Partners HR plug-in service where Mel provided us with an “on-call” HR service. Now we know Mel we will not hesitate to contact her to assist us with HR Projects and people training and to provide us with HR advise as needed along our journey as a growing business.
At Peakbound we recognise the value in having support partners who can be flexible to our business needs coupled with quality output and reliability. Agile People Partners have certainly delivered on all of these counts and we would recommend them to any business.
