'Work is about people. Understanding 'people' leads to significant benefits in businesses: from making teams more effective, to increasing the efficiency of processes (run by people); or finding the right match between individuals and roles to enhance performance and well-being. The list is endless.'

We create bespoke solutions for organisations with both large scale and small recruitment needs. We also support organisations developing their staff, but getting the right people through the door is the first step.

As a project manager, Amy saved one organisation ca £10K in training costs. Adapting their graduate recruitment process to reduce the pool of business assessors needed meant less people to be trained, and ca 2 months fewer business days dedicated to the process.
Amy also makes a difference to individuals. A coaching client wanted to improve their time management. Amy helped the individual to generate and decide on appropriate strategies, which resulted in increased deadlines met, and more productive interactions with colleagues.
When working with clients, whether organisations or individuals, Amy explores their need so that the optimal solution for the presenting issue can be identified. Amy encourages collaborative working throughout the duration of the projects, and evaluates projects as a basis for continual improvement.
