Below are a selection of testimonials and comments we have received from clients and those who have experienced the Solved HR services:


I would like to thank you for all of your hard work over the last 18th months in helping and supporting us to change our company.  You have assisted us in so many ways from starting with psychometric testing so that we could see where we were, to helping and advising on the changes that we needed to bring in so that our company could change to what it feels like now, a modern happy place to be that cares about its employees.  I particularly like our new company chart that tells everyone how people like to communicate.

Your knowledge of HR requirements has been invaluable, along with your ability to deal with any challenge that we through at you.

I am very proud that with all of the changes that we brought in we entered the SME Northants Awards 2017 and are finalists for both Employer of the Year and Innovator of the Year.

The support that you give us makes us feel like you are an invaluable member of our team and not just a consultant.

Thank you very much for all of your help and support.

Dear Simon Merriman,
I would like to thank you personally for helping LSCD Ltd, you have completed the team, and our business has never been so productive. It sounded so farfetched when you suggested a candidate from Greece for the position of an engineer over here in the UK.
But among all the work, you setup a Skype interview that you sat in on and helped us with every single aspect of bringing Lefteris over from Greece and settle into the position of technical engineer that he is in today.
Lefteris now has his own flat in Northampton and in a short space of time become a very valuable asset to our organisation.
The work you have done to make a dream of finding the ideal employee has become reality thanks to your hard work, and would highly recommend Simon from solved HR again and again.
The hard work and commitment is living proof that dreams do come true and your efforts have changed the life of an individual and a company and will never go unnoticed.
You’re a credit to your organisation.
Yours sincerely
Lee Sturgess, LSCD Ltd

“My interview experience.

After applying for the position of HR assistant I was contacted to come for an interview. I came for my interview on Tuesday the 1st of December. As most, I was nervous and excited all at the same time.

Shortly after arriving at the offices I was taken upstairs to a meeting room, where I met Simon Merriman. I’ve had a few interviews before but this interview was by far the best I have ever had. Simon immediately put me at ease, the questions he asked were very open which allowed me to answer in the best possible way I could, to sell myself, Simon listened to my answers with not just his ears but always his eyes this made me feel like he was listening to my every word. Simon would ask questions relating to answers I had given allowing me to elaborate further.

My interview lasted around 40 minutes in total, and as I left the offices I knew it was the job for me and the company I wanted to work for.  After going to other interviews I must say this interview was completely in a league of its own. I think an interview can very often give you an impression of the company and I must say that if it wasn’t for the interview Simon gave, I may never have accepted the job offer I was given.

I’ve now been working for the company for just under 2 months and I must say I love my job and truly am thankful for the great experience of the interview Simon allowed me to have, as it has definitely helped me in my job role when interviewing others.

Once again, thank you Simon.”
