Why Choose Red Kite HR Consultants?

What sets Red Kite HR Services apart from other, larger nationwide providers, is our personable approach.

We are a boutique but flexible consultancy which is reflected through our fee structure and our clients consider our consultancy to be an extension of their own organisation.

We’re delighted to be a certified B Corp business. B Corp reflects our commitment to meeting rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability. As a certified B Corp, we join a global movement of companies dedicated to using business as a force for good. More information about our B Corp Certification can be found on our Group website here.
