Yorkshire Tech Climbers

Member benefits

As one of the businesses recognised in this year’s Tech Climbers awards in Yorkshire, we are delighted to offer a range of benefits for you to take advantage of. Check out the packages outlined below that are tailored specifically to growing businesses embedded in the tech and digital sector, such as yours…

Member benefits

Access to HR Protect Hub

Our employment experts have created HR Protect, a package which provides unlimited day to day HR and employment law advice across the year, at a single fixed price. To enhance this advice we have created a dedicated hub which provides access to over 250 legally-compliant policies, procedures, contracts, letters, guidance notes and other employment documents, as well as topical insights for your team’s learning & development.  As one of Yorkshire’s Tech Climbers we are offering a free 2 week trial of the HR Protect hub where your HR teams can access the hub and trial the value it can bring to your HR function.

Discounted management training

Delivered by our employment experts, we have created a unique and high impact management training programme which brings together both the people and legal considerations of management, performance and issue management. The programme can be tailored for junior to senior management depending on each organisation’s specific needs and we are offering Yorkshire’s Tech Climbers a 20% discount.

Free international recruitment consultation

As a growing business, you may be looking at your options to expand your workforce to ensure the best talent is within the business to help your growth ambitions. Our immigration experts work in partnership with multiple businesses to identify highly talented individuals and we then go on to secure a suitable visa for them and are offering a free consultation to discuss your immigration needs. This consultation will allow you to ask our dedicated lawyers any questions you may have on this complex area, such as how you start looking to recruit specialist skills from international visa holders in the UK, such as students, what the process is to obtain a sponsor licence or how you manage the challenging paperwork if you already have sponsor licences in place.

Business strategy meeting

Our corporate specialists can meet with you for an informal discussion around your short and long term plans & associated funding arrangements/requirements, general business strategy and positioning as well as exit plans for the business. Their experience of working with high growth businesses across a multitude of sectors operating within the presently challenging market conditions will undoubtedly ensure that this proves to be an engaging and thought inspiring session.

Estate planning and will structuring for business owners

We appreciate that many executives and owners of successful businesses are so focussed on driving their businesses forward that they do not consider the personal implications of being a business owner. With this in mind, we are offering a bespoke private client succession planning service to help you understand the complex personal issues associated with being a business owner and to enhance your own personal position. It includes:

  • A no-obligation visit at your company’s premises, or video alternative depending on location, for an initial consultation to discuss:
    • Succession planning within the business in the event of death or incapacity of a business owner
    • How to protect the business in the event of the death of a business owner by effective structuring of their Will
    • How to optimise the availability of any relief from inheritance tax on death.
  • A bespoke and tailored fixed fee package of Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Cross Option Agreements for all owners of the business.

We have a large network and where relevant we are more than happy to work with you to understand if we have any relevant contacts that would be beneficial to your business and facilitate introductions.

We are also members of the Geneva Group International (GGi), who are the world’s leading multi-disciplinary alliance of professional services firms. So if you are looking to expand internationally, we are happy to facilitate introductions to foreign lawyers and accountants to make this a possibility.


We will invite members of your organisation to a range of events and networking opportunities in the region to aid you in making new contacts, share knowledge, grow your network and build opportunities.

If one, or more of the packages outlined above are of interest to you, submit your details below and a member of the team will be in touch.
