About HR Solutions

Hi, I’m Carmel Murphy, Owner and Managing Consultant with HR Solutions, providing a range of HR support services in employment law and best HR practice, to both businesses who don’t have their own in-house HR function, as well as to larger businesses who require project work completed or support for their HR function. In addition, I specialise in workplace investigations, providing independent and impartial investigation and hearing/appeal services across bullying and harassment complaints, misconduct issues and disciplinary and grievance matters. I am a chartered member of the Institute of Personnel & Development, the professional body for Human Resources professionals, as well as a member of the Employment Law Association of Ireland.


I have been involved in human resources and people management all my working life and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to my clients. I previously worked in a number of senior HR roles in large organisations that includes Logica CMG, Canada Life Assurance, John Laing Construction and Waterways Ireland, before I set up HR Solutions in 2006. I now work with businesses across a wide range of sectors including manufacturing, construction, retail, hospitality, childcare, nursing homes, pharmaceutical, professional services, community and public bodies.


HR Solutions offers a range of support services subject to business needs, either on an ad-hoc basis as required, or through the provision of retained and regular advisory services.  HR Solutions also works with a number of expert independent associates and trainers as required on specific projects.


So if you would like to discuss any aspect of how HR Solutions can support people management issues in your business or help your business be compliant with it’s employment law obligations, email info@hrsolutions.ie for further information or schedule an appointment for an initial consultation.
