We have been using Centric HR as our outsourced HR provider since we established in 2020. Sandra and her team have been absolutely invaluable in creating company handbook, sorting out our contracts and helping us with generic HR matters.Centric HR also assisted us with the Kickstarter Scheme and we managed to secure an excellent candidate who supported Time Assist for over a year.The team is always on hand and willing to help and give advice (no matter how irrelevant the questions might seem).I have no hesitation in recommending Centric HR to anyone who needs ad hoc HR support (or on a monthly retainer for that matter).Thank you!Jaanika and Time Assist team

Amy was so knowledgeable and helpful with a recent query. The expert knowledge supplied by Centric HR allows us to concentrate on our core business activity with increased confidence in our outsourced partners.

“I have deferred to Sandra’ expertise many times over the years so it makes sense to work closely with Centric HR. It was a great decision to secure Sandra’s services on retainer at the start of 2017 – since then Sandra’s advice from a technical point of view has been outstanding. She’s also very easy to work with and viewed as a key member of the decision-making team. Thoroughly recommended

Centric supported our organisation through a difficult and complicated period with redundancies and restructuring. Very professional and supportive service from all staff who are very helpful. Centric gives you confidence that they are able to resolve HR issues and ensure that you avoid any pitfalls. They ensure that your needs are fully met in line with the organisations objectives and take the weight of your shoulders, whilst you concentrate on other matters. As a Charity we are were grateful for the quality service. I would recommend their service to support and equip you to develop your organisation.

Centric HR is very proactive in their approach and support whenever a need for their services occur. We have been very fortunate to be able to seek the advice required from Sandra and the team. We look forward to our continued partnership and would have no problem providing a full recommendation.

“I would just like to pass on my thoughts regarding Helen, Amy and the team at Centric. They have been professional, informative and helpful at all times during the whole process of the restructure of my employer, but above all they have also been kind, caring and understanding to everybody’s different circumstances. They dealt with all my queries without any trouble and if ever there was a question they couldn’t answer they would get back to me as soon as they possibly could. I would like to personally thank them for all their help and would like to wish them all the best for the future. They are truly a credit to their profession.”
