What Our Clients Say

Supporting SMEs and high growth companies

“Oceanium has been working with Purpose HR for nearly a year and their support has been critical in enabling the scale up of our team and business. As a fast moving start-up, we have a lot of work to do at variable times and not enough to employ a full-time HR expert.   With purpose HR we can get a full-range of HR skills from the whole team while only paying for the help we need. The Purpose HR team are professional and a pleasure to work with!”
Karen Scofield Seal, CEO, Oceanium

“We decided to partner with PurposeHR as our business had reached the scale where we needed to dedicate investment to our people processes but weren’t yet at the scale to support full-time in-house resource. The team at PurposeHR have a deep level of expertise across HR and People and have started supporting our business in building out processes that will help us significantly scale our team over the coming years. We’re excited to be working with PurposeHR and look forward to growing the relationship further over the coming months.”

“It has been a great relief and opportunity to have found Purpose HR to work with us in our recently acquired company located in Scotland, ProMedics.

Their responsiveness to our local management team and their availability to educate us on needs and local requirements has been a tremendous asset to our organization. We feel very comfortable, as does our UK attorney, knowing that we have Purpose HR as part of our team to ensure that our employees feel they are well attended to and our liabilities are minimized with their HR experts available to us. As an added asset, all the consultants have not only been knowledgeable and responsive, but are personable professionals, easy to deal with and pleasant to engage with our team.”
