Our HR service

As a recruitment agency, you know that your people are your most important asset. But with so much to do, it can be difficult to find the time to focus on all aspects of HR, including performance management, disciplinary actions, career maps, and EVP.

In many cases most recruitment agencies are just too small to even warrant a HR professional, so this is frequently left to line managers or the finance team. Some are highly experienced and confident in everything people related and some aren’t.

With the experience of a HR Director who has worked within the recruitment industry for 20+ years on a global basis, supported by a knowledgeable HR team we support recruitment businesses with all HR & people related scenarios.
