Hiring HR and recruitment staff

Many of our clients come to us to hire their first in house HR or recruitment professional. Others are keen to add to their existing team but don’t need to recruit a full time person. By bringing credible HR talent in-house, it enables companies to cut costs and gain added value.

We recruit across the whole spectrum of roles, from HR consultant to HR manager and HR director. This also includes specialist Learning & Development and recruitment roles through to maternity relief cover and interim roles. Candidates have a breadth of HR skills and sector mix allowing clients to ensure they are able to source the right candidate for their opportunity.

Hiring finance professionals

Our SME clients often come to us having previously used an accountancy firm as a resource, but now want to take that spend and invest it internally in a Financial Controller or Finance Director role. 

Other clients come to us to add to their existing team, implementing flexible working solutions that meet their business needs within their finance function.

We can help clients recruit the best flexible financial talentThat might be a standalone Financial Controller or Finance Manager who can do everything from management accounts to payroll, managing budgets and forecasting to Financial Director who can manage the financial business planning and planning to CFOs who can advise on strategy and direction. Our network of experienced and credible candidates come from a wealth of sectors with both SME and larger corporate experience.

Hiring marketing talent

We can help find you brilliant part-time marketing talent using both traditional and new media channels, or more strategic marketing input at a board level. We work with many SMEs that have their sales and business channels in place and now need an injection of marketing expertise to facilitate further growth. We also help organisations with established brands bring on board fresh talent to revitalise their marketing activities.

Recent examples include Head of Marketing, Senior Brand Manager, Digital Marketing Consultant, Regional Marketing Manager and Marketing Director.

Hiring sales and business development staff

We can source high-performing sales talent across a variety of roles in your team, from account management through to high-performing strategic senior roles.

We can also source business development specialists to generate hot leads for the sales team, acting as first point of contact with potential clients to develop the initial relationships.

Hiring legal and compliance talent

We work with a diverse range of clients looking for legal and compliance professionals who are looking for individuals to join existing in house teams or to work in a stand alone capacity.

Like many of the fast-moving, rapidly-growing businesses we work with, the amount of legal resource required can be considerable and hiring experts to manage key areas can be crucial and more cost effective to hire internally.

We recruit roles from associate and in house lawyers to Head of Legal to Compliance Managers and Consultants to Head of Compliance and anything in between that can be offered on a part time or flexible working basis.

These roles typically deal with process support and management.
