Debbie Groves, Business Support Manager, BMTR

Hanson Lawrie has been great to our company, we had never used a HR company before so at first, we were a little hesitant; but we haven't looked back.

They have been excellent from initially sorting our contracts and policies to helping us when we need them. Fast, friendly, and professional at all times! I would highly recommend them to any company looking for support

Jo Maher, Director, Scallywags Kids Activity Club Ltd

The support Hanson Lawrie HR & Recruitment Solutions has provided my business has always been exceptional.

The team are always there for us. We have had some difficult issues to deal with, but the advice and support given is timely and professional. On the Recruitment side Sam has been first class, and to date has helped us with filling 3 positions with excellent candidates. They are a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them.

Edward Bromwich, Managing Director, ehB Residential Limited

There are many reasons why we really enjoy working with Paul but one of the key ones is that the advice he gives is practical and relevant.

Whilst an obvious statement, there are so many HR providers that will tell you what you can/can’t do but Paul’s shapes his advice into here are your options and here is what you should consider doing from those. Paul is always accessible, prompt with his responses and feedback and has been invaluable in helping to steer our organisation through a significant amount of people changes that came from our factory move and change in corporate ownership.

Dean Kavanagh, Managing Director, QED Environmental Systems Ltd

I met Paul at Hanson Lawrie just under a couple of years ago at a very difficult time in my business.

It was my first year running my own business and I had both staffing issues and rapid business growth pains. I felt very alone and vulnerable. Paul was recommended to me from a previous work colleague and I nervously picked up the phone. Thank goodness I did. I have never looked back, only forwards since that day! Paul was the confidante, the rock and wise old head that I needed at that moment in time to deal with my issues and move forward.

Teresa Pickworth, Whitacre Hall Limited

The Hanson Lawrie team have always been there for us when we have needed them.

Paul rarely takes longer than an hour to respond to emails I send over, asking for his help, which is always reassuring. If it takes longer, I know he is with a client or in a meeting. Over the past few years, we have had some difficult issues to deal with and Paul has guided us through them closely which always gives us the reassurance we are handling HR situations in the best way possible. He has also helped us keep our contracts and other paperwork up-to-date with new legislation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hanson Lawrie’s services.

Michelle Chaplin, Company Secretary, ADECS-Maple

We have worked with Paul for a number of years and have always found his pragmatic approach to all HR matters a breath of fresh air.

Highly recommended.

Simon Martin, Operations Director, Burns Hamilton

Viv Insley, Director, Clayton Vehicle Systems

Hanson Lawrie HR & Recruitment Solutions make an important contribution to our Organisation.

They are always on hand to deliver professional advice when needed and to give support on challenging circumstances. Their services have enabled us to use our time more efficiently.

Dawn Cooper, Partner, Bromwich Hardy

HB&O have worked closely with both Paul & Sam for a number of years now, with Sam helping us recruit many successful team members.

Paul works very closely with us on our own HR matters and also assists many of our clients with their HR needs. Our relationships with both Paul and Sam go beyond a traditional commercial arrangement as they are both such lovely people to work with and both are very knowledgeable in their own respective specialisms. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the services of Hanson Lawrie to others.

Mark Ashfield, Managing Director, Harrison Beale & Owen

We have worked with Hanson Lawrie as our dedicated recruitment specialist since 2018.

As a small business a key requirement for us was to take all of the candidate search and initial interview process off our hands. The team at Hanson Lawrie have achieved this during multiple successful job searches without ever losing sight of our often demanding requirements. Sam Hanson is very easy to work with. Her professional knowledge of both recruitment and the wider subject of employee engagement combined with excellent communication skills has been of genuine benefit to our company.
