Development of website and marketing strategy and purchase of IT equipment to support HR consultancy business.
Company Director, Julie Pollock has been a Human Resources Professional since 1997, gaining extensive experience working for a multinational organisation which at its peak employed 3,000 employees throughout Ireland. She established Personnel Solutions (lately changed to Consult HR) on 1st October 2009. As an HR Consultant, Julie specialises in providing HR support to small and medium sized companies who do not have a dedicated HR Manager. Julie is a Chartered member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development and is the Chairperson of Women In Enterprise.
Funded under Axis 3, Julie applied to ARC North West for support to develop the business through the commission of a graphic designer and web designer to develop an impressive website. She also applied to engage a marketing consultant to design and implement a marketing strategy and plan for the business for the next 12-18 months. Also included in the application was support for the purchase of up to date IT system and back up system to provide an excellent on line support system to clients.
Personnel Solutions is specifically designed to provide the target market, which are small enterprises who do not have access to this type of service on a day to day basis with the expertise that they need to make stress free people management decisions, reduces their risk of litigation claims and is cost efficient. As part of the project Julie changed her brand name to Consult HR.
