Continued growth for Northants-based HR consultancy

A Northamptonshire-based HR consultancy has taken on four new members of staff after experiencing significant growth over the last two years.

HR Solutions has welcomed HR Administrator, Roxana Stoica; HR Consultant, Terry Hayward; and part-time HR Advisors, Victoria Templeton and Sarah Dunnell, to the team, which now stands at 24 staff.

The firm, which is based in Kettering, was established in 2001 when founder Carol Ann Guilford set the business up as a sole trader. In 2004, HR Solutions (Consultancy) Limited was incorporated and enjoyed steady growth over the next seven years before Carol’s son Greg joined the team in 2008.

HR Solutions continued to grow steadily, but a series of developments since 2017 has seen the company undergo unprecedented expansion.

Two years ago, HR Solutions acquired Milton Keynes-based consultancy, HR Services (UK). Earlier this year the company set up a strategic partnership with Wilson Browne Solicitors to deliver a comprehensive HR and employment law advice service to its clients.

Then, in September, HR Solutions secured a deal that saw Cambridge-based International Workplace Limited transfer 14 of its clients and contracts worth £90,000 to the company.

Greg Guilford, CEO of HR Solutions, said: “This significant expansion over the past two years has meant we have been in the enviable position of being able to recruit a number of new colleagues.

“Working in HR, we want to lead by example and flexible working is something we embrace and actively encourage here at HR Solutions, so we were particularly pleased to be able to offer Sarah and Victoria, who both have young children, part-time roles, allowing them to devote time to their busy family lives while continuing their professional careers. “We are delighted to welcome Terry, Roxana, Victoria and Sarah to the team and look forward to them developing their careers with us as HR Solutions continues to go from strength to strength.”

HR Solutions is a specialist HR and employment law consultancy based in Northamptonshire with over 330 clients, currently servicing more than 300 large corporates and small to medium-sized businesses.
