It’s National Conversation Week this week!
The workforce solution consultation stage is the first and most important step where we get to know your business, understand your priorities, issues and goals, so that we can create a tailored solution that transforms your business.
Click the button below to read about our consultation process.
Alternatively you can start the process, no obligation, by filling in the form below and we will get back to you as soon as possible to discuss your individual needs.
Scoping your business
The consultation stage normally involves an expert team visiting the main location(s) to get to know you, your team and the wider business, its processes, any supply chain, and what your key deliverables are. It can last anywhere from 2-5 days to a few weeks depending on the scale of the project. The important part of this process is not to impose or dictate a solution but to collaborate with you to find the right fit.
Technology solution options
This consultation could be conducted with a technology partner from the beginning if a system has already been agreed upon. You might have a preference that you know will integrate well with your existing systems. Otherwise our team will scope the project first, and then look at the best suited technology systems to manage it afterwards. You can read about our recommended technology partners here.
Consultation free of charge
Our consultation service is usually free of charge if you decide to progress with the proposed solution. In some more competitive environments, the service may be chargeable and then deducted from the first year’s fees, if the client selects us as their partner.
Not only will we deliver your project on time and improve your existing processes and efficiencies but we really do save you costs. In fact, normally the longer a solution is used, the more benefits it produces over time.
This is only the beginning so start the ball rolling and request a consultation today. Simply fill in a few background questions and we’ll do the rest.

I have worked with Simon as a supplier for nearly 20 years. During this time, I have always found that the solutions are very effective for suppliers. He instils the right balance for both the client and supplier, where the services are fair, open and responsive. There is no doubt that the client and the supply relationships are their focus. These are services we are happy to support wherever we can.
MD Recruitment Company
I have worked with Simon Woodhouse for over 10 years and during this time I have received first class service as a recruiter. The flow of information has always kept us in touch with requirements.
The solution (both the technology & the team assembled) were intuitive and responsive to our needs. The job descriptions have been detailed and meaningful. It is apparent that Simon has an excellent knowledge of market trends and client/candidate expectations. So as a recruiter I have found that this information has been invaluable in sourcing the right people for the end client. It has been evident that Simon forms first class relationships with both the supplying recruitment agencies and the end client.
I would recommend Simon to any potential client or recruitment company.
When presented with a challenge to support our Permanent Recruitment challenge, Simon responded with a very cost effective, and comprehensive solution, that we relied heavily upon during a major restructuring exercise. So much so, that once the initial phase came to an end we retained the service. The support provided to the HR teams and the hiring managers was second to none, and it became an integral part of our operations.
We had an opportunity to restructure our approach in regards to how we utilised contract labour and recruitment. The burden to the company had become significant, and major change was required. The experience Simon bought to the Change Management project was a key component behind its success. The level of buy-in to the program from within our organisation, and down into the supply chain was a credit to Simon and his team.
I have known Simon for 20 years and in that time Simon has been my colleague, my manager and my mentor. Simon is a very kind and thoughtful person, but will ensure the job is done to the best of his and his team’s ability. His management style is one of a consultative approach and leadership, allowing the team to be part of the bigger picture and ownership of the project in hand, but being there for support and guidance when required. He has a very comprehensive understanding of Procurement and the Managed Service Process, which has allowed him to manage some very successful implementations and on-going business. A great asset to any organisation.
