Small enough to care – Big enough to cope

Our clients always get to speak with someone they know and someone who knows their business.  The majority of our clients see us as much more than an HR and Training Consultancy and turn to us for advice on a wide range of business related matters. We also actively encourage networking between our client base.

With many years experience in people and performance management and as HR & Training practitioners, we have significant expertise in all generalist HR matters as well as in the delivery of business related training and coaching. The range of businesses we’ve worked with include engineering, manufacturing, digital media, renewable energy, printing, recruitment, education, retail, construction, driving schools, commercial plant nurseries, housing associations, charities – it’s a big and varied list. Our approach is always to tell it as it is and to provide a range of solutions wherever we can. We are proud to be members of the following Chambers of Commerce:
