Every recruiter tells you that they are the best!! Of course they do, but we are able to offer you a more rounded service than many. We offer an HR Support Service alongside the recruitment service, so when we find you the best possible hire for your team, we also look after all the relevant documentation so that you are compliant with employment law.

We continue to offer you advice on employee relations, and work as an extension for companies that don't have an HR function, handling everything from disciplinary investigations to reviewing company benefits, helping with learning and development, salary surveys and pay reviews.

Building Client Relationships

We have successfully worked with national and international clients across a wide spectrum of sectors, from placing Risk Managers in France, Austria and the UK within the international insurance market, Insurance Underwriters in the Lloyd’s of London Insurance Market, to placing a Head of Sales for a new Men’s Cosmetics Brand, a .Net Developer for a Credit Insurance Brokers and most recently Financial Controllers for a Peanut Butter company, an Art Gallery, a Cleaning Company and a Children's Toiletries company, as well as a Head of Marketing for a Smoothies Wellness company.

We even did research and wrote full reports at the request of the client as to the employment law for a UK company hiring a French and Austrian National in their respective countries.

We can say, we have pretty much done it all! We started out as insurance recruitment specialists, then we moved into placing a variety of candidates within the FMCG market place, working very closely indeed with Kiddylicious Limited, that was bought out in August 2018 by Lotus Bakeries. Having placed 75% of their staff over the last 10 years, we are happy to continue the new connection with Lotus Bakeries going forwards and most recently placed two Supply Chain Assistants and a Demand Planner for their Logistics Team.

We have most recently become very involved with a variety of different start-up companies, and as Kristina Lushey is a qualified HR Manager, we have also been able to offer the start-up companies HR advice, as part of the working relationship. If there is a recruitment assignment involved, then the start-up company gets the HR advice for free, and including templates for offer letters, Contracts of Employment, or anything else that may be required. This is our unique selling point (USP), which start-ups find particularly helpful, as they not only get a fantastic new hire for their team, they also get all the HR paperwork and advice that they need included in a very competitive recruitment fee.

We are proud of our strong client relationships, and as they will testify, we give an exceptional personal service, being available outside of normal working hours, to deal with any recruitment or HR crises as they arise. Another of our Unique Selling Points would be our accessibility, but also our willingness to turn our hand to whatever our clients need or require.
