HR Solutions, which provides outsourced HR services to small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across the UK, is expanding with the acquisition of Crispin Rhodes Limited, a human resources consultancy in Milton Keynes.

This latest acquisition is the company’s second in Milton Keynes following the successful acquisition of HR Services (UK) in 2017 and shows further investment in the area.

Greg Guilford, CEO of HR Solutions, said: “We are very pleased to announce this latest acquisition as it provides HR Solutions with an ever-increasing footprint in the Midlands and will likely to see additional job roles being created as the combined company continues to grow.

“We were actively looking to acquire like-minded HR consultancies and, with Crispin Rhodes being such a well-established HR consultancy in Milton Keynes, it made sense for us to make an approach.

“I am very excited about this deal and the future working relationship we will have with Angela Rhodes and the wider team at Crispin Rhodes. We are looking forward to working closely together and continuing to provide great support to their clients.”

Clients of Crispin Rhodes will also benefit from a wider service offering, thanks to the additional services provided by HR Solutions which include payroll, recruitment and health and safety and environmental services.

Angela Rhodes, Managing Director at Crispin Rhodes, added: “I am excited to join Greg and his team at HR Solutions. This acquisition will provide more resources to enhance the service we provide to our clients, whilst maintaining the personal touch we have always been proud to offer.”

HR Solutions has offices in Kettering, Birmingham, Milton Keynes and London and supplies outsourced HR support to more than 300 clients across a wide range of industries, including financial services, medical and hospitality sectors.
