About Us

Specialist HR support for SMEs

It ain’t what we do – it’s the way that we do it

Being able to tap into the skills and experience of others to get the support you need will make all the difference to how successful your business is. But we’re well aware that what we do isn’t necessarily different…but how we do things certainly is.

Creating long term partnerships is at the heart of our service – partnerships that deliver specialist HR support at every stage of the recruitment process…all of which will future proof your business, be that growth, consolidation or sale.

It actually matters to us that our clients and their employees get the best out of each other because, as we know ourselves only too well, the relationship between employer and employee is critical to the business and its success. So, when it comes to helping our clients to build great teams, our 50+ combined years of experience means that we really do know what we’re doing so make sure you talk to us first!

Helping you grow your business through your PEOPLE

  • We get real results, measuring the impact to demonstrate ROI.
  • Our 360° approach offers the strategic insight and practical support needed to streamline your HR operations and set you up for greater success.
  • We are experienced professionals with a rather unusual blend of business skills and are direct, honest and always do what we say we will do.
  • We like to keep things simple so we use practical and workable methods that you can relate to.
  • We challenge when we believe that current or proposed practices are not in your best interests.
  • We are transparent in all that we do – from our initial approach to the costing of projects, to the open and straightforward way in which we communicate.

If you want to work with us simply contact us to discuss your requirements or to arrange a free consultation.

Meet the team

As a bunch of approachable and experienced recruitment and HR professionals, we have been around a few years…or several! And during this time we have learnt a thing or two about what works and, as importantly, what doesn’t, in recruitment, HR and people development.

Our knowledge and expertise is founded on working for others and for ourselves. We’ve become experts in recruiting the right talent for our clients and helping them manage and develop that talent effectively because, after all, your people matter if every piece of the business jigsaw puzzle is to fit together .
