Recruitment and Human Resource Professional Services

Aspire Cambridge was founded in 2008, when Kelly Haston realised from personal experience that there was a gap in the market for an agency that truly placed people at the heart of the business. The mission became to build a reputation of honesty and integrity with clients, to help businesses build a workforce of dedicated employees, with the right skills, experience and enthusiasm for the job. The aim was to ensure that candidates were put forward for the right opportunities that matched their skillset and career aspirations and to support them every step of the way.

Kelly built up a loyal client and candidate base and the business began to grow steadily. In 2014, Aspire Cambridge began to offer HR Consultancy services as again, Kelly realised there was a need for outsourced HR support, particularly for smaller businesses that did not have their own dedicated HR professional.

Fast forward to 2020 and Kelly’s Cambridge based team is comprised of experienced, passionate individuals that help to drive the company’s vision, mission and values daily.
