HR firm Breedon Consulting is set to open new offices in Leicester, Northampton and Buckinghamshire after revealing a joint venture with ER Recruitment that it says will offer HR, recruitment, and learning and development services.

The new partnership will see Breedon provide strategic services, operational services and HR software systems. On the learning and development side, Breedon specialises in profiling, individual development, management development, employee engagement and performance frameworks.

Services from ER Recruitment will include retained assignments, head hunting, volume recruitment campaigns, initial screening campaigns and compiling and managing specific assessment centres.

Each company will be introducing the new combined services to existing clients.

Nicki Robson, managing director of Breedon Consulting, said: “We are excited to announce our formal partnership with ER Recruitment. Eileen is a leading business woman in Leicestershire and we have known each other for many years, so when we realised we both wanted to expand our offering, this partnership was a natural fit, allowing us to provide a full and beneficial package of combined services for our existing clients, as well as new ones.
