Aston Holmes is a Resourcing and Talent Acquisition Consultancy

We help businesses unlock enterprise value by enabling them to attract, hire and retain the right individuals in the most effective way. We believe that in a crowded market, organisations will increasingly require an advisory partner to support in determining, designing and delivering resourcing and talent acquisition strategies that are dynamic in nature, yet simply effective. We challenge conventional market wisdom and embrace innovation to create people solutions that have the future of your business in mind which we make sure we deliver with care, passion and precision.

About us

We put people first

Aston Holmes was founded by a group of People experts that range from HR and Talent Acquisition leaders and Resourcing Specialists to Project Managers and Talent Business Partners who have come together through a belief in a single guiding principle – that it is people that unlock enterprise value. This mutual understanding motivates us each and every day. It’s why we do what we do.

We know that there are people challenges for businesses as there never have been before – issues such as the big advancements in technology, globalisation and social media, not to mention the emergence of the millennial workforce, crowd sourcing, the gig economy and next generation executive hiring.  All of these present exciting new opportunities coupled with huge risk. Importantly, we know how to capitalise on these issues. And even more importantly, we know how to use them to your advantage.

With Aston Holmes you don’t buy a Talent consultancy, you buy a philosophy. A “Working as One” philosophy, which filters through our entire organisation. We have purposely selected our team so we have diverse and complementary experience. We want the team to be fully invested in our approach so we offer all employees equity in the business. This means everyone feels included in the day-to-day running of the business and the quality of our offering. It also means there is a genuine entrepreneurial spirit alive in every single one of our employees.

Our services

There is magic in what we do

There’s no doubt Talent is rising in impact and importance. And so too is the need for specialised talent. That’s where we come in. We help advise, guide, steer and lead our clients in the right direction, challenging market wisdom and embracing innovation. It’s hard to pigeon-hole our services as each project is unique to a particular client, however, broadly speaking we work using industry-specific experience to help our clients develop expertise across key Resourcing, Talent & Recruitment.
