Your Ace Personnel Ltd:
Our family run business identifies with the trials & tribulations of setting up your own business or having a successful business that has grown so quickly that you may need additional, affordable support to allow you drive it forward.
When I decided to set up Your Ace Personnel Ltd - Solution Management, in 2015, I had almost 20 years of recruitment & management experience - hence why recruitment was of course my first choice, but I knew firsthand how companies react when they get that “dreaded” call from an agency, for some reason not everyone sees the benefit of outsourcing their recruitment?
Previously, I had witnessed companies growing at such a fast pace to expand they thought that recruitment was their only option, but it’s not always the case – as a consultant my boss would have had my P45 in the post if I had offered another solution - for example re-training their staff!
This is why Your Ace Personnel Ltd - Solution Management differs; our unique selling point is that recruiting may not be the answer; maybe you need to look and see if you have the right employees in the right positions?
In recent companies, I had been given the tasks of: -
♠ Company re-structuring
♠ Creating sales order processes
♠ Building and driving successful sales teams
♠ Setting up a new global sales division- travelling constantly back and forth to the USA
♠ Organising, setting up and attending UK European and global exhibitions
♠ And don’t forget basically being a general dogs body!
So why wouldn’t I offer all these services? It’s my skill set, it’s what I thrive on - this is where our company strap line was born - Providing Support In Order To Achieve.
I would need an experienced and resourceful team around me - I’m not Wonder Woman, although I have had this challenged that at times! I needed a strong team but at the same time wanted a family business
♠ I needed a really good IT system to ensure smooth working practice. I sourced a local business man to create my CRM system; I met him at a networking group many years ago. I knew exactly what I wanted and what I didn't want through past experience and over many months Barry Starling and I created an all singing all dancing bespoke CRM (I think if you asked him, I gave him a fair share of headaches- and still do!) Luckily we have remained good friends and now he is a valued part of our team. TICK!
♠ Close school friend Gail Foster was my next appointment. She came to my rescue and created the website you are reading now. I might add Gail gave many hours over many months unpaid and self taught building this amazing website and supporting the initial start up of Your Ace Personnel Ltd – Solution Management. I am eternally grateful. TICK!
♠ So, where did the family fit in, my eldest and youngest sons have joined me in 2017 and my middle son lives and works in Saudi.
♠ Jack’s background since leaving school has predominantly been in construction but also has experience Sales and Customer Service. He now heads up all the administration, making sure all the processes are in place and adhered too, as Administration Manager he is also heavily involved in all new projects and staff training. Jack is a very level headed individual and that’s always great to have by my side when I am racing forward! He definitely can pull the reins on me.
♠ Declan my youngest with only a few years office and construction experience is our Finance Manager, he really has a head for numbers and without a shadow of doubt is perfect for the role, currently working towards his AAT qualifications and heading to be Finance Director.
But if there is one thing for sure, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree with both sons. They both have a natural ability to excel in business, with a level headed approach and great communications skills; they will be total asset to the growth and YAP!
I couldn’t be prouder! TICK!
