Working with us

As a growing business, we’re always on the lookout for new talent at all levels. Whether you’re just starting out in your HR career, need a change from your boring in-house HR role or are looking to gain more experience and the opportunity to develop your HR skills.

With our ambitious plans to grow into the most recognised outsource HR provider across Eastbourne, Brighton and Hove (we’re already well on our way!) we’re always looking for great people to join our team. However, working with us comes with a warning as it is not to everyone’s taste…

Working with us is very different to being within a HR Department for a single organisation, you are in effect providing HR for lots of different businesses in many different sectors, all at the same time! This means you could be advising on a diverse range of HR issues. You need to be well organised and have the ability to deal with multiple clients in different industries. One minute you might be advising on an issue in a manufacturing company the next you could be dealing with a CEO of a Charity or out on site leading on a disciplinary.

This is HR outsourcing, so all our clients have different contracts, different holiday entitlement, and different sick pay arrangements. It’s not only the employment terms that are different but also the workplace culture and the personalities that you are supporting.

Every day is different. And sometimes it may feel like you have experienced a careers worth of HR challenges in just a week! TUPE, Redundancies, Dismissals, Interviews, Smelly Employees, Full blown fights… we get the lot and we still smile!

We are the HR Department to many, all demanding our time and they all are a priority!
