“It was only meant to keep me out of trouble”
Back in 2004, HR Consultant and Managing Director, Imogen Edmunds decided that now was the time to break free from the corporate world, and build her own independent HR consultancy. Imogen wanted to provide HR support to organisations in the West Midlands. The idea was to work with clients who were too small for their own HR Department.
Having stumbled across a copy of the RSPB Handbook, Redwing Solutions was born. The Redwing is a little bird, the same size as a Thrush, a winter visitor to our shores. They move in groups, and when you see one, they probably have ‘mates’ not far away. Like the bird, Redwing Solutions is a friendly HR Consultancy that believes that working with clients, should be like working with friends.
Little did Imogen know at the time, but demand for friendly, HR Consultancy, support that didn’t tell employers off, and didn’t tell them what they were not allowed to do, would prove very popular.
Says Imogen,”It was only meant to keep me out of trouble!”.
Word spread far and wide, and clients recommended Redwing Solutions to their connections outside of the West Midlands. If you like, Redwing Solutions grew wings!
In 2005 Angie Sykes joined us as a qualified and experienced associate HR Consultant, who would work with our clients in our ‘house style’.
Today, Redwing Solutuons works with clients across the country, in all sectors, from Arts organisations to heavy industry. Some clients remain too small for their own HR Department which is why they outsource to HR Consultants, others have their own, but like working with independent HR Consultants who can support their HR teams.
Redwing Solution’s specialise in HR for Early Years supporting Day Nurseries, Pre- schools and Out of Hours clubs.
“Redwing Solutions Ltd. is professional, reliable and
provides invaluable support to employees.”
