Following his appointment to Business Partner, Alex Caluori now takes responsibility for the GB Solutions dedicated HR & Legal Division.

GB Solutions headquartered in Gloucestershire, have long been known as the region’s specialist recruiters. Having successfully managed the GB Office Division for the last 6 years, Alex is now sharpening his focus to meet the growing demand for people with specialist skills and experience across these two sectors. By setting up a specialist HR and Legal desk, Alex wants to develop the scope of services he can offer clients across these two areas.

Human Resources professionals span every industry and cover a huge spectrum of jobs, specialisms and careers. Alongside traditional roles such as HR Advisor, Business Partner and Head of HR, Alex and the team at GB are finding companies with a need for more specialist roles: Compensation & Benefits, Learning & Development, Talent Acquisition, HRIS Analysts to name just a few.

Every business faces the same challenge of recruiting, developing and retaining productive employees as well as absorbing the raft of employee related legislation. Clearly HR plays an integral part in this.  The fact there are approximately 1500 (and growing) CIPD members in Gloucestershire alone shows what a thriving area HR is. There are diverse levels of specialist courses offered in HR and the University of Gloucestershire offers both Professional Study Certificates and MSc’s. Degrees in Psychology, English and Criminology are preferred pathways into HR but the university of life is also a well-worn path!  

Under the GB Legal umbrella GB have established strong relationships with many legal firms across the region largely supporting the recruitment of non-fee earners in the shape of Legal Secretaries, Paralegals, front of house and back office legal administrative staff. Building on this success, more recently GB have supported the recruitment of fee earners, Conveyancers, Legal Executives and plan to further develop this sector in the future.

Alex Caluori, Business Partner GB Solutions commented “The service I offer is one of an outsourced HR Recruitment Partner. I can take a relatively limited job-spec and present it in a way that is appealing and engaging to the candidates. We use a number of job boards to advertise our roles which gives a widespread geographical reach. In addition my extensive LinkedIn network helps me keep candidates up-to-date with the job roles I am currently offering and allow me to reach out in a discrete but direct way.”

The HR & Legal team covers permanent, temporary, full and part time positions. For more information on how Alex can help you with your HR and Legal recruiting please contact him or chat with him directly
