Integrated Employment Partner

Clear a path to growth

with skilled HR specialists on your side, you can sleep soundly knowing that you’re all set for success. Stapleton Consulting’s specialists are here to help you eliminate obstacles to success, and to care for the greatest asset in any business: your people. 


Outsourced HR:
Remote but not removed


For some organisations it’s just not feasible to have a full time internal HR department – but no matter what kind of business you have, it’s crucial to get HR right. Outsourcing your HR to Stapleton Consulting gives you all the benefits of a dedicated, highly experienced HR Manager, without having to bring on more employees. We get to really know your people and take time to forge authentic relationships so that when issues arise, we can get right to the heart of any problems.

Specialist HR Support:
Key for busy teams


For larger organisations with their own existing HR team, our offering is a bit different. Stapleton Consulting’s experts provide bespoke support for your internal HR team, acting as a People and Capability Specialist. Underpinning existing capabilities in your organisation and taking hassles away from your HR and Executive teams, our specialists give you the support you need to craft an excellent employment journey. Ranging from day-to-day HR tasks all the way through to high-level offerings like organisational development and change management, we craft our HR services to fit your particular needs.

Integrated Recruitment Services

In a job market where good, skilled candidates are hard to find (and are snapped up quickly whenever they become available), it can sometimes feel like recruitment is the only thing your HR team gets to focus on. For those who don’t have an HR team, it can be even more overwhelming. Where do you look, how do you start, which platforms are actually effective for advertising these days…?

We can take care of all that. Stapleton Consulting can be your integrated recruitment partner, working with you to develop a solid recruitment plan and then executing that plan. When we say ‘integrated’, we mean that we’ll be on the ground working with hiring managers to advertise, screen, shortlist, and scrutinise candidates through various background checks – just as if we were an in-house resource.

Your ‘shopping list’

How do we know who we should be searching for? We work closely with you to craft a ‘shopping list’: a detailed profile of the kind of person you need and the environment they’ll be working in. With a good idea of the ideal traits and experience a candidate needs, and a solid understanding of the team and culture they’re coming into, we’re equipped to efficiently uncover the perfect match.

Honesty is our policy 

Integrity and honesty are central to the way we work. You won’t find us poaching from one client to benefit another unless that candidate has first approached us, and if a particular candidate isn’t the best fit for the role, we won’t hesitate to say so. There’s no filling roles just to secure a fee, either: we don’t do success fees. At Stapleton Consulting, we prefer a more straightforward approach: you pay for the work we put in to find candidates, or we work together to design a retainer that suits your needs.

Laying the groundwork for candidate success 

The first steps in the employment journey, attraction and selection, are just as important for the candidate as they are for you: after all, with each job they consider, they’re weighing up the possibility of making a major life change. That’s why we make sure that the candidate gets a good impression of your organisation right from the start. Delivering a positive recruitment and induction process is absolutely crucial for long term candidate success.

Governance and Executive  

We are supporting a growing list of Stapleton Consulting’s clients at the executive and governance levels, either via recruitment campaigns, or in a strategic advisory capacity.

When your Board or Board sub-committee needs an employment and capability expert, reach out to us. Catherine brings a holistic and refreshingly ‘real’ approach, paired with a deep understanding of people-related risks and mitigation strategies. Her expert knowledge and incisive mind can keep any CEO or Senior Executive on their toes, and prompt even the most self assured to really consider the ‘people’ implications of their decisions and management proposals.

Stapleton Consulting’s executive services and director recruitment services have an excellent reputation with both clients and candidates. Our processes are meticulously professional, with all candidates receiving excellent communication regardless of whether or not they’re shortlisted.

We take the time to understand the skills matrix of your Board, what kind of expertise you need around the Boardtable, and why. We also get to grips with the vision and purpose of the business, what challenges are on the horizon, and which skills you need at the table to effectively navigate those challenges.
