HR for Growth
At Corvus People, we understand as a small or medium sized business that hiring an internal human resources department can be expensive and time consuming.
We offer affordable, comprehensive HR support across the entire employee lifecycle helping you to recruit, develop, and retain high performing people and teams that help drive the success and strategy of your business.
We have a small team of Northern Ireland based highly qualified experts in Generalist HR, Talent Management and Learning and development who can provide a unique tailored service that meets your needs.
How we can help your business
It is important for businesses to create an engaged and motivated workforce and through the design of a strong talent management model organisational goals can be matched with the talent required. We can support you in identifying the skills needed to recruit, develop, retain, and manage succession for key talent in your business from early careers through to senior leadership.
Learning & Development
We offer a wide range of bespoke and tailored learning interventions to individuals and businesses to help you plan development for now and the future.
We encourage our clients to develop their teams and enhance their skills which helps boost their engagement and retention and supports organisational goals.
We can help establish a coaching culture within your organisation through the design of a coaching programme or through 1-2-1 sessions with an EMCC qualified coach. Coaching techniques can also be used to identify risks, opportunities, and potential solutions to organisational issues.
Policy/Employee Handbook Design
Do you have the correct workplace policies and procedures in place for your business? Our policies and handbooks can help your organisation provide fair and consistent guidance to new and existing employees that support onboarding and legal compliance.
There are certain times when businesses require outplacement support for employees who are leaving the organisation with practical careers advice, learning, and coaching to help them find their next roles with confidence. We can support those employees who may be facing a negative situation and turn it into a positive journey of opportunity.

Our holistic solutions and partnership approach mean we are easily integrated into your existing processes, enabling you to utilise our team of experts for a wide range of people challenges.
We identified a complex role within the business that required a demanding skill set. Finding the right person for this role presented us with a challenge - we had specific criteria that could be tricky to meet.
We had a relationship with Corvus People in the past and were keen to explore their more recent Corvus Assured offering, which is unique in the market and provides a different approach than traditional Executive Search services.
The role was difficult to fill, but our Consultant, did a fantastic job and was very responsive to our requests. The attention and customer service were great, and after some searching, they identified the right candidate who relocated internationally for the role. I would recommend this service to anyone who has hard-to-meet criteria or is looking for a different, more in-depth recruitment process.
In the current climate it is difficult to recruit quality candidates. Corvus have so far delivered us with two excellent senior members of staff who have elevated the business to another level, and we have third member starting shortly arranged through Corvus.
When Michael initially made contact with me it was evident that Corvus recruited people differently to most other companies. They attempt to place people who they recognise exactly suit the role, where others would be guilty of just throwing CV’s at you. I have only every received quality candidates through Corvus.
The quality of the services has help me to grow my business, and Michael, Ian and Helen have been very supportive and friendly throughout the process.
We have been facing ongoing challenges within the recruitment process, which has been the case for the past 18 months. Unfortunately, this has not been specific to one type of role or region. Attracting well-matched candidates and avoiding 'time-wasters' has been difficult. It has meant that, on a few occasions, we have had to restart the process from the beginning, taking a lot of resources from our team.
I had an existing relationship with Helen from my previous company, and when she reached out I had no hesitation in trusting her with the vacancy. The candidate who was placed is a great fit for the business and is coming with the right amount of relevant experience that we were looking for. Helen listened to what we wanted and found us the perfect fit! I would have no hesitation in choosing Corvus People for our next vacancy.
My client required a Sales Executive but after posting the role through their own channels, they became overwhelmed by applications that didn’t fit the brief. We identified the need for a more personalised service with a well-filtered candidate list that best suited our requirements.
I knew Michael through business networking and liked how he and his team do business - they offer a personalised, professional, and high-quality service. Some other agencies send over several CVs without necessarily matching them with the job specification or client requirements, which is not the case with Corvus People. My client has benefitted from reduced time on recruitment, and I can recommend an efficient recruitment solution to my clients. I would recommend this service to anyone who wants to take the hassle out of recruitment.
Our business is continuing to grow, and we needed help attracting the best surveyors and project managers to join our team. We have an amazing staff retention rate and want to ensure we were hiring people who would love working with us. We needed assistance with shortlisting and used Corvus People’s behavioural bench-marking tool to help us target more relevant candidates - it helped us understand which potential team members were the best fit for us from a cultural perspective.
Corvus understood that we weren't just trying to put bums on seats and wanted to hire employees who would grow alongside us. We talked a lot with Corvus about our company’s ethos and felt they were able to convey this to potential hires effectively. We love that Corvus took the time to get to know us and our business.
We have successfully placed several employees with the help of Corvus People, and we continue to work with them.
They are enthusiastic, proactive, and caring, and it is a pleasure to partner with their team.
Corvus People were recommended to me by a trusted friend and business advisor to recruit for a high-level role within the business. The recruitment of this role needed to be carefully administered and Corvus People were the team to ensure that. From the offset, everything was friendly, professional, and programmed. The level of service from the beginning right through to aftercare has been exceptional.
As a face-paced, proactive, but also very reactive business, the level of support and service that Corvus People offer is second to none. They were exactly what we needed to progress with the hire while we could focus on the day-to-day and give our input when required.
Corvus People will be looking after all our recruitment needs moving forward, and we look forward to working with them again.
Having worked with Michael and Michelle from Corvus I found them extremely professional, They worked very closely with us to not only understand more about the role we were looking to fill but also the nature of our business and people. I can highly recommend the whole Corvus experience.
I have used Michael’s services for business recruitment and personal career change. Michael is highly professional, intuitive and knowledgeable across several business sectors to assist with finding the right candidates for the right roles. Highly recommended!
Working with Michelle Kearns at Corvus has been a pleasure, there was regular contact, honest and transparent conversations about what I was looking for and what the company was able to offer. If I requested more information about any particular points Michelle provided robust and concise feedback with all the detail needed and would often check-in to see if there was any further support I required. I was in the process of moving country and Michelle also understood the pressures this involved and would give me time to think about any offers made and also helped accommodate support within that offer for the relocation.
Michelle was very professional in how she handled my case and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to make the next move in their career. She has demonstrated a high standard of work and negotiation to get me the package that best suited my circumstances and I am very grateful for all her hard work.
Excellent to deal with and very helpful. Kept constantly in contact to keep me up to date with how things were going and was very helpful both prior to and after getting my offer!
