As an HR consultancy we are HR people hiring HR people so only the best get through our rigorous process.

If you need an HR resource for a short term project, maternity cover and would rather employ or engage the professional directly, we have a network of over 500 HR professionals across the UK so can respond quickly with a resource who is tried and tested so they can hit the ground running.


  • Our team will support you to hire the best HR talent who will sit on your payroll.
  • We take the time to understand your role brief, ensuring that every candidate we submit is the perfect fit for your organisation.
  • We spend a large amount of our time networking within the UK HR community, approaching key HR professionals and attracting the best HR talent, so that you don’t have to.
  • We conduct a rigorous interview process and will provide you with no more than 2-3 CV’s that ‘hit the mark’.
  • Our approach is bespoke not volume.
  • You have the flexibility to extend the contract or indeed make the individual permanent after the initial fixed term period.

We can place a fixed term contractor with you on site full time or part time. Our fixed term contract service is based on a placement fee pro-rated for part of a year. We are competitive in our rates.

We place fixed term contractors across the whole of the UK.
