“Ashton People Solutions really came to our help when we required some HR advice and support. The advice was very clear and informative and the support we received was excellent. I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
Pennington Williams Chartered Accountants
“The service was superb, Paula took a very tricky situation and gave expert, timely advice which made dealing with it much less stressful. I saved so much time because Paula appraised the situation, asked questions to clarify, told me the correct course of action and even drafted a letter for me to send.
Clever Jellyfish
“Ashton People Solutions worked with the Hospice of The Good Shepherd to assist with the recruitment of a Senior Leadership role. They managed the process from start to finish by liaising with the candidates, designing a comprehensive assessment centre approach to find the right candidate. They facilitated the assessment day and ensured that the assessors were guided and coached, facilitating discussions to help reach a decision.

“Capital Reinforcing first developed a working relationship with Ashton People Solutions in early 2016 after searching the market for a more personal and bespoke approach to HR consultancy. Since then, our virtually non-existence HR department has gone from strength to strength and the difference is there to be seen in how we manage our most important resource: our people.”
