Celebrating 20 Years!

We are celebrating our…20th Anniversary by launching our new on-line employment updates for 2021.

These events which normally only attract 100 HR professionals through face to face meeting now has the capacity to reach 3000 professionals, places for our May Employment Law update are filling up fast!

The history behind our brand

We are headquartered in Nottingham and offer a UK-wide service to employers and candidates. Which has supported many professionals throughout their career from administration through to board level appointments with a 95% success rate at placing the right candidate with the right company.

Our brand was established in 2001 by Naomi Asher and Hilary Scanlon as an HR recruitment consultancy. In January 2015, we were acquired by Nicholas Associates Group and a merger with an existing specialism, Finance Recruitment Consultants created a new brand, Ashley Kate HR & Finance in order to support both HR and Finance professionals across the UK.

Our management team, which has over 40 years combined service comprises, Jacqui Wall – Head of HR & Finance, Paul Brammer – Managing Director, Paula Shaw – Business Manager, who covers the Yorkshire region and Amanda Underhill – Business Manager who covers the south.

For many years…

We have collaborated with leading employment law specialists Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP to bring the HR Community timely employment law advice and case law updates at face to face seminars. But the events of the last 12 months have required a faster and more efficient way to provide HR & Finance professionals much needed advice on fast-moving issues such as furlough payments and business restructuring.

Paul Brammer, Managing Director of Ashley Kate HR & Finance said:

“Over the last twenty years our brand has ridden through the highs and lows of a recession and now a pandemic, which demonstrates how quickly we can adapt and evolve to stay ahead of other recruitment consultancies. Moving to online updates ensured we were able to engage with the HR community to offer solutions at a time when they needed advice on so many new changes and regulations.”

Naeema Choudry, Partner from Eversheds Sutherland added:

“By aligning our skillsets with Ashley Kate HR & Finance, we are able to reach a UK-wide network of over 300,000 HR and finance professionals at a time when their companies are relying on them for help to make crucial decisions. Our webinars have helped to ensure that businesses are up to date with the latest level developments, thereby protecting the future of the company from potential exposure to litigation as well as planning on future growth based upon future trends.”

Our first Employment Law update for 2021 is set to take place on Wednesday 19 May 2021 between 8.30am and 10.00am. You can find out more details and reserve your place by clicking this link.
