As a small business we do not have in-house HR expertise and wanted support initially to review our HR policies and procedures. We are so glad that we found Sweet HR  & Recruitment; they have supported our business for over a year now and they are professional, helpful, thorough and practical and we felt that they really understood the realities of running a business as well as helping to ensure that we were fully compliant with the relevant legislation.

Construction Company, North Yorkshire

After an initial meeting to discuss the job description, expectations and availability, suitable candidates were then put forward for consideration and interviews were set up. We have now employed a full time employee who has just completed her first week. Throughout the recruitment process, contact was frequent and I was kept updated. I will be back in contact again when a new position(s) come up. Thanks for your help.

Marketing Business, North Yorkshire

My initial contact with Sweet HR was through LinkedIn with reference to my current position. They were very professional in their approach and informative with reference to the position that they had in mind for me. Through the recruitment process Sweet were always on hand to help and guide me and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend Sweet HR to any company looking to recruit new talent and for people looking for a new position. I can’t thank them enough.

Candidate, Birmingham

I really appreciate all you have done and contributed to HR and the
wider business. The HR Department is certainly in a better place.
