Croner invests £2m as needs for services increase post-Brexit

Hinckley-based Croner Group has invested over £2 million in sales and marketing, with further plans to recruit 50 new national roles.

Adding to the HR and health & safety consultancy firm’s head office, the group has revealed plans for new offices in Glasgow and Manchester.

The 50 roles will be business development and sales orientated, and 10 will be additional field-based roles.

The expansion has been driven by a strong demand for the consultancy’s HR, health & safety, pay and reward services due to a particularly uncertain and turbulent time for employers since the outcome of the EU referendum.

Alan Price, CEO at Croner, said: “Brexit, among other legislation changes, has presented employers with more considerations and challenges than ever before”.

Price revealed that Croner has experienced an increase in the need for HR, health & safety, pay and reward services, including an influx of enquiries geared around the consultancy’s dedicated Brexit helpline.

He added: “Brexit is, without a doubt, the most monumental development in recent history. So it is timely and only natural to invest and increase our resources to enable us to further assist employers.

“From overseas pay to employing foreign workers, Croner have assisted organisations with compliance in HR, safety and pay for over 70 years.

“I am confident that the investment will benefit employers, allowing us to support more organisations and grow our resources to aid and encourage compliance in all sectors”.
