How we work

Built around SMEs

We know what makes SMEs tick and we work in a way that SMEs seem to like.  You get deal to deal with the owners of the business and we bring a wealth of experience and a consultative approach to the recruitment and people engagement process. Our recruiting model is affordable and based on retention, words not often linked with traditional Agencies.

Ground Truths

Engaged people perform better, we encourage our clients to find out the “ground truths” in the business;  what Directors believe their people think about the business (and its Directors)  is highly unlikely to be what they actually think. Recognising the gap is the first step in addressing it.

Recruit Smarter

We get to know you, get to know your business and take the time to really understand the roles we work on. Our model is based on retention, the longer a new hire stays in your business the better, for you and us, we’re in it for the long term not the fast buck. We have range of solutions to suit the role;  no hire no fee,  fixed price search and advertising only.

Vocational training

We provide free to user vocational training for employers, individuals and organisations who are looking to upskill. Our most popular courses are digital skills for the workplace, customer service skills, domiciliary and residential care skills and health and wellbeing at work courses.
