Being an expert in making your business a success doesn’t always mean having the expertise to manage the human resource issues that can arise as your business grows.

And being very invested in the day to day running of the business, many business owners find it difficult to deal with HR and recruitment issues, not only due to lack of resources, but also because of budgetary and time constraints.

Whether you are an SME, a start up or a sole trader, Clearcut Consulting offers a wide range of HR, recruitment and other management supports to your small business including:


  • Drafting and developing job specifications, job descriptions and job advertisements
  • Screening and short listing of candidates
  • Participation in recruitment and selection boards
  • Group interviews, ‘in box’ exercises and assessment centres
  • Interview skills training for managers
  • Competence development
  • Job analysis
  • Psychometric testing
  • Development of appraisal systems and Personal Development Plans (PDPs)
  • Training needs analysis
  • Outplacement
