Recruitment and Onboarding Testimonials 
The Challenge 
 
Rebecca Beaton's business had grown rapidly, and they needed a very specific role filled. It was important that they recruited the right person for the role, both in terms of skills and fitting in with their team. With this being quite a different role to ones they had previously recruited and not wanting to make a mistake they reached out to us for some support. 
 
What We Did 
 
We worked alongside Rebecca Beaton Accountancy Services as their talent partner to understand their requirement for the role, we created a job description and advert to enable us to short list suitable candidates. We carried out in-depth pre-screening telephone interviews prior to 1st stage interview to ensure we had the right people for the role. When we found the right candidate, regular contact was made to ensure her onboarding was successful 
 
The Result 
 
Rebecca Beaton commented: 
Sarah and Kate were both very helpful from the start of the process. They took the time to understand our business and helped us to identify the kind of person we needed and what skills would best benefit our business. From the advert to the appointment, they managed the process of contacting and carrying out the initial screening of candidates, assisted with the interview process, and kept in touch with candidates throughout. Amy has been with us for 2 months now and has already had a positive impact. Thank you.“ 
 
Amy, Rebecca Beaton Accountancy’s new Business Coordinator, commented “Sarah and Kate were very friendly, informative and approachable throughout the interview/offer process and whilst serving three months’ notice with my previous employer. 
 
Sarah was very informative regarding the requirements of the role, to ensure the job met my expectations and was the opportunity I wished to pursue. During my notice period she made regular contact to ensure I was in receipt of everything I required, and she dealt efficiently with any queries I raised. I would highly recommend Humber HR People for their professionalism and efficiency. I am thoroughly enjoying my new role! Thank you. 
 
The Challenge 
 
Finding someone to cover a maternity leave within the customer care department but also helping us them, with their succession planning. 
 
What We Did 
 
We suggested they look at a graduate appointment and provided them with suitable Graduate Apprentice programmes for them to consider. 
 
The Result 
 
Peter Ward Homes opted for an Operations Management programme which would provide valuable skills that the candidate could utilise in a variety of departments within their business. Once the maternity cover assignment was finished, the new trainee moved to other departments to gain a wider understanding of the company and market sector. 
Working with Humber HR has been very different from our normal relationships with recruitment agents – in a really good way and we will definitely be working with them in the future. 
 
The Challenge 
 
Synergi Finance had been struggling to find the right level of staff to help their business grow. They were looking for someone who could run the finance engine of the business, someone who had finance experience, good attention for detail, a head for numbers, and could communicate well at all levels. 
 
What We Did 
 
Our team helped them fine-tune their job description, helping them to attract the right people to the role. We managed the distribution of the role on Indeed, spoke with all candidates, pre-screened them over the phone, and then organised the interviews. 
 
The Result 
 
Rob Partridge, Managing Director of Synergi commented: 
Within a couple of weeks, we had received 14 applicants, 4 of which we interviewed and made an offer to the standout candidate the same day. The process was slick and extremely helpful taking away all the pain whilst I concentrated on the day-to-day management of my business. 
 
I’m very happy with the service and would definitely recommend Humber HR People to any business looking for employment support. 
 
Working with Humber HR People for a second time: 
 
We’ve been working with Humber HR for the past 4 or 5 months and I can’t praise them and Sarah Carvill enough for their support and help in our hunt for new employees. They take a lot of the hard work away from us looking after the recruitment process from start to finish. 
 
The Challenge 
 
Finding a Leader in Charity Retail with the skills and knowledge to support their charitable objectives while sustaining their finances was a real challenge for a local charity. They also wanted a change in culture and brand to connect within their community.. 
 
What We Did 
 
We connected with the RSPCA Hull & East Riding at the start of their successful journey. We created the job description and made it come to life and matched some perfect candidates. Not only what they thought they needed but some wildcards, who were great candidates. Our team took responsibility for the whole process from the sifting, telephone interviews, and setting up both interview stages. 
 
The Result 
 
Fred Owen, CEO of RSPCA Hull & East Riding commented: 
Humber HR made our recruitment experience simple and easy it felt like they were part of the family.  
 
The team met with me to understand our business, and our culture and to ensure their work wrapped around our needs. My level of confidence was maintained at every stage of consultation, their drive and diligence ensured the candidates received the best experience from the RSPCA.  
 
The advice and guidance from the team enabled us to attract the very best candidates and led to a successful appointment. 
 
The Challenge 
 
As an employer, Airkool have a track record of employing apprentices. However, they realised that their in-house policies and processes were not fit-for-purpose. They asked us to overhaul their apprenticeship programme to give their managers and their apprentices a better experience. 
 
The Project 
 
Our team have a wealth of knowledge and experience, which helped us give Airkool the right advice and guidance. Having worked in the recruitment industry for over 20 years, we could immediately see the weaknesses in their existing policies and procedures. We recognised that they were making it difficult for managers to know what was required of them, which impacted the apprentices. 
 
The Result 
 
Sarah Kidd, Business Development Manager commented: 
The Humber HR team didn’t just tweak what we already had in place. Instead, they completely redesigned how we recruited and supported our apprentices. Previously we would rely on a third party to select the apprentices. Kate suggested that we take back control and recruit directly.  
This was a huge change but one that proved to be very successful. 
Kate reviewed and revised all the paperwork and guided us through every step of the process. 
 
We advertised six apprenticeships. We were delighted to receive 80 applications. From those, we shortlisted 12 to attend an assessment day. It is a testament to the quality of the recruitment process that was put in place that all 12 turned up. 
 
The calibre of the applicants was exceptional. We were bowled over by the young people we interviewed and were spoilt for choice. Kate considered everyone’s needs, and we were able to make suitable adjustments in the recruitment process for neurodiverse candidates. 
 
Not only did we recruit six exceptional apprentices, but we were also able to identify two further candidates who will join us next year. 
 
Thanks to the work of Kate and the team, we now have an apprenticeship programme that supports our managers and apprentices from initial recruitment through the onboarding programme and even quarterly reviews. 
 
With the guidance and support that we have received, everyone in the company knows their role and responsibilities.  
The apprentices are flourishing, and they know where to turn if they have questions.  
I highly recommend Humber HR People, who are a pleasure to work with, and their advice is invaluable.
