With most work coming from referrals, Paul has had an exceptional year of business. “I’ve worked with a lot of great companies this year, some small, some large; in the last year I’ve worked with around 45 different companies that required some form of HR support in and around the Plymouth area.”
KenmareHR Ltd is a Plymouth based HR consultancy established in 2017 by Paul Kennelly to help businesses with any aspects of HR support they require. The company offers a full range of HR and employee services for local companies, based upon his wealth of experience and a strong unique portfolio of employment and GDPR contractual documentation and material.
Paul understands that employees are a company’s greatest resource and knows that it’s important to build a relationship where everyone knows the standards expected and everyone works towards the company’s commercial goals in a productive manner whilst being treated equally and fairly. He tells us how he can help make sure this is implemented into any business:
“By establishing an employment relationship with carefully drafted contracts, employment policies or even a bespoke handbook for the company, it means everyone can focus on moving the company forward and concentrate on business. It also provides confidence to company owners when having to resolve any employee related queries or situations.
Employment contracts and policies need to fit the business needs. They can be tricky things to establish clearly and then require reviewing and updating on a regular basis.
KenmareHR Ltd can assist a company with the development and drafting of bespoke contracts and employment documentation, along with supporting with the consultation process of introducing it into the company. If you need someone to support your HR requirements, Paul is highly recommended:
“We have outsourced all our HR and Personnel management to KenmareHR for over 3 years. During that time Paul has assisted us with the complete range of operational matters and some of our more strategic projects. Paul acts with integrity and is always professional, responsive and frequently proposes solutions that are a good fit with our organisation. Over the past 3 years, Paul has become an important and valued member of our team and we would highly recommend him.”
Having a contract that covers all the elements of the employment relationship creates clarity and peace of mind, for both the employer and the employees.
KenmareHR offers a straightforward approach that will help reduce costs for any business. With Paul’s many years of senior HR experience and his understanding of business from his corporate days, he is confident in saying that:
“After working with so many different companies in many different sectors, I bring and share my knowledge and experience, providing best practice ideas and advice that’s always well received by employers and employees alike.
Management skills, coaching and mentoring, the essentials of HR, GDPR, Project Management, Customer Service, and Dignity in the Workplace are just some of the workshops delivered by KenmareHR.
“I have done a lot of work with City College Plymouth and other large employers over the last year help to deliver a wide range of bespoke development workshops, for local businesses in the Plymouth area. Ranging from GDPR, management skills, coaching and mentoring, soft skills workshops, customer service, handling disciplinaries and even project management to a global company based in the South West.”
“This year I have developed and delivered coaching and mentoring training to 300 employees within one of the area’s largest companies, I developed and delivered first line leadership development to another of our largest manufacturing employers. I build the material, so its match fit for the company’s specific needs and then bring it to life with my many years of experience and stories from the world of work and dealing with people – never a dull moment.”
Paul has been a busy man and with 2018 being a very successful year for his company, the future of KenmareHR is looking bright.
The success of the business can partially be credited to the introduction of GDPR last year. Paul became a local expert, reading and re-reading the GDPR regulation clause by clause; creating a full suite of GDPR compliance material and delivering GDPR workshops via City College Plymouth to over 50 companies and supported other companies with data protection issues. Last year he helped a number of companies with data breaches or complex subject access requests.
“I also deliver GDPR training on behalf of a government funded organisation that help “start-up” businesses in the South West. I’ve got a full range of GDPR documentation; bespoke privacy statements, GDPR compliant policies, data flow maps; More material and resources than any company or charity would ever need.”
KenmareHR has also had a busy year helping various companies with the occasional disciplinary matters, redundancies situations or employee disputes. “I work hard to ensure a fair process is followed that treats everyone involved with respect. We are all people at the end of the day.”
It’s not just KenmareHR that Paul puts a lot of hard work into; he is also preparing and training for Ironman Nice, France, and Ride London. This will be his third attempt at doing an Ironman and he’s raring to get on the start line this time!
“With the two previous Ironman’s I’ve entered, I never got to the start line! For the first one I fell off my bike that resulted in a plate in my shoulder and two years to recover. The second was kiboshed by chest infections during the training. So this time I’ve got to get on the start line!”
The Ironman will take place in the south of France on June 30th, and just over a month later Paul and his wife Michelle will be participating in the 100 mile Ride London cycle event in August whilst raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
We chose MacMillan because it’s a cancer charity and like everybody I’ve been touched by people that we’ve lost through cancer.

So after a year of success since our last visit, things are looking up for KenmareHR. Paul explains that the aim for the company is to continue to reach out to companies that need support. “What I enjoy doing most and what I think companies get best value from is when we build a relationship where I am there when needed, working alongside them as their businesses grows and develop, helping to make employing people that little bit easier and rewarding. I love being the HR guy you can rely on, being there when needed.”
