About Us

Providing Human Resource services
to clients since 2003

We have been providing Human Resource services to clients since 2003 and pride ourselves in giving both specialist and generalist expertise to medium and small businesses, mainly in the Western Cape.

In dealing with all aspects of Human Resources, from hiring to firing, and all the good stuff in between, the Company has developed an array of skills and experience to really assist managers in business. Many managers, especially MD’s and Financial Directors are expected to take on various roles, including managing people, and wish they could rely on solid advice to help with day to day as well as specific issues relating to their staff.

We look to fill that requirement by providing straight forward, succinct advice to “meet the need”. A philosophy of the Company is to help put in place sound foundations of good HR practice on which to build.

When the situation calls for it, we work in association with various remuneration, industrial relations, training and other professionals, to ensure that we help managers wishing to concentrate on running their businesses efficiently, with due regard to the employment and development of their staff.

Assisting our clients for over 21 Years




Rob has dealt with Human Resource issues for over 35 years. After completing a B.A. (Legal Studies) in Durban he spent time on the mines in Witbank before making the move everyone wishes they could make… to Cape Town! During his corporate career, he worked in the maritime, hospitality, publishing and sport industries, and during his consulting time, has also had the opportunity to assist in very diverse industries, engineering, finance, health, IT, fashion, travel and retail industries, as well as non-profit organisations, mainly in the Western Cape.

I’ve realised that I really enjoy working with smaller businesses, no committees, smorums, quorums and “round the mulberry bush” decision-making and politicking. When dealing with owner managed businesses, chances are that they will hear you out, challenge you, think things over, and then implement quickly. No presentations, thick dossiers of paperwork…just sincere application. It’s wonderful to see positive impact quickly – I really enjoy that.

Be warned…Rob loves to hug! He also loves music, and kayaking, so if you need to get away from it all, ask him to take you out to sea! He also has a great love of dogs, particularly boxers.

Diana – In Memoriam

Diana co-founded HRadvice and brought a wealth of experience to the business. Having graduated with a Human Resources degree and Associate in Management qualification through the Graduate School of Business (UCT), her core focus on included consulting on the value of psychometric assessments as an integral tool for recruitment and team dynamics. She has developed training courses and workshops using DISC methodology.

Diana was radically passionate about many things…especially her husband, her animals, colour, fabrics, perfumes, cosmetics, gardening, health, spicy food, sushi, the East, shopping…and books, lots of books.

After a courageous journey through breast cancer, Diana succumbed to virulent liver cancer in October 2020.

Diana’s vibrant personality, naughty laugh, sincerity and profound wisdom in mentoring, supporting and encouraging many is sorely missed every day.
Until we meet again, beautiful one.
