Expanding from existing offices in Covent Garden, recruitment and HR specialist HR Revolution has taken space at Calverley House in Tunbridge Wells. HR Revolution, previously known as ITRM HR, offers a range of ‘virtual’ services including free HR and recruitment health-checks, management of policies and procedures, diversity and equality, training and development, employment law and mediation and recruitment process outsourcing. HR Revolution works with all types of businesses from start-ups through to large organisations.
Locate in Kent gave HR Revolution a number of property options in the area from its commercial property database. Managing Partner Wendy Read, said: “Connections to our London office are very important to us and we benefit from very good road and rail links to the city from here. We are very much a ‘virtual’ company – our staff can work from anywhere, meaning we are able to recruit right across Kent and are looking to expand further in the county. The reports and contacts Locate in Kent offered us were extremely useful and played a critical role in our decision-making process, saving us both time and effort.”
Paul Wookey, Chief Executive of Locate in Kent, said: “As this investment shows, Tunbridge Wells represents an excellent opportunity for businesses and attracts a wide range of companies. Locate in Kent is currently seeing a good level of interest in the town – 80 of our projects have registered an interest in the area, which have the potential to create more than 2,800 new jobs.
Councillor Catherine Mayhew, Tourism, Leisure and Economic Development Portfolio Holder at Tunbridge Wells Borough Council, said: “Tunbridge Wells is a thriving borough and we are pleased that this has been recognised by HR Revolution, which has chosen to relocate here. We welcome the company’s arrival.
“Business choosing Tunbridge Wells will find the quality of life for their staff second to none. At the gateway to Europe, and with excellent links to other parts of the country, it is a prosperous and successful borough which has much to offer businesses looking to start-up or relocate in Kent.”
