Acas provides practical information and advice on employment matters for employees and employers in the workplace. Acas North West is here to work with employers and employees to improve organisations and working life through better employment relations. We do this by providing up to date information, independent advice and high quality training.

Company description
Acas stands for Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service. We aim to improve organisations and working life through better employment relations. We help with employment relations by supplying up-to-date information, independent advice and high quality training, and working with employers and employees to solve problems and improve performance.

Whether you're an employer or an employee you can get free advice from this website or by calling our telephone helpline. Employers might also be interested in our more specialised services, including training, workplace projects, conciliation and mediation.

Although largely funded by the Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS), Acas is a non-departmental body, governed by an independent Council. This allows us to be independent, impartial and confidential. Founded in 1975, we have over 30 years' experience of working with people in organisations of every size and type.

The Acas Council is responsible for determining our strategic direction, policies and priorities, and ensuring our statutory duties are carried out effectively. Chaired by Ed Sweeney, members are leading figures from business, including unions, independent sectors and academics. Chair and Council members (See: The Acas Council) are part-time roles, appointed by the Secretary of State for BIS.

Our day-to-day operations are managed by our Chief Executive, John Taylor, and a management board that includes our national and regional directors. We have around 800 staff, based in our London head office and 11 main regional centres (See: Regional offices and national teams) across England, Scotland and Wales.
