Who we work with
We think we offer something different, something exceptional. But don’t just take our word for it…
‘Brave have been very effective and a great support during a time of rapid growth in our company. We decided to bring our recruitment in-house and they have assisted us by conducting executive interviews with the shortlisted candidates for our new sales positions. This added element has given us an excellent insight into the character and values of the candidates, with any areas for consideration highlighted for final interview. The candidates have found the process to be different to the normal employment interview, insightful as they get feedback and enjoyable and we have gained invaluable information. The entire process has been highly successful and has resulted in us hiring great new talent’.
‘Brave HCG were recommended to us by internal business colleagues. During the recent pandemic and at a critical point in terms of the redesign of our business structure we found it necessary to engage with an HR partner. We spoke to James at Brave and were encouraged by his proposition, whereby we would have access to professionals to offer advice quickly and ‘on tap’, as well as to assist us in attracting quality candidates to our Business. In a relatively short space of time, James and his team at Brave have immersed themselves in our business, developing an understanding of our characters and the performance we expect from the Business. Brave have been quick to respond to our questions, openly offering a ‘wrap around’ employment service for both the tough conversations and the conversations that promote career development and growth. We look forward to continuing to work with them in the future’.
'We got in touch with Hannah from Brave HCG after placing our own recruitment advert for a Customer Service Executive on Indeed which produced the quantity but not the quality of candidate we were hoping for. From the first conversation, Hannah grasped the type of candidate that would work well from both a skills and culture angle for the agency. Within a short time period, we were presented with a shortlist of candidates which were of top quality and we could tell Hannah had taken the time to go through competency-based questions with them. Hannah organised the first and second interviews, the offer, and all the checks and referencing requirements, which was a massive weight off our shoulders. The whole recruitment journey was a breeze from start to finish and we look forward to working with Brave HCG in the future'.
'You and your team have been a Godsend. It’s obviously been a difficult year, and when Covid hit we didn’t have any HR support in place. Luckily for us, you had joined BNI and I immediately had access to someone who could help.
Not only did we deal with employee requests and the impact of things like furlough, as things started to turn around we started to plan our people strategy to ensure we were ready for the growth we are now witnessing.
I always find it strange that owners of SMEs tend to take a DIY approach to things like marketing, IT and HR. Putting aside PCs, laptops, social media and websites, it’s surprising that we sometimes overlook expertise to help the most important asset in the business – its people.
So, if you want to get your people focused on helping you achieve your business goals, look no further than Brave. You won’t regret it.'
