A peer had suggested that I speak to an HR professional to help me recruit a graphic designer as I was feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of sorting through piles of CV and portfolios. I reached out to Paula at Hummingbird Solutions, who took time to understand my brief. Paula’s response was focused and efficient, providing a high level candidate shortlist within days and worked with me to identify the ideal applicant. I met with the designer, we had an instant rapport and her skill set matched my requirement perfectly. Paula went on to support me to offer and manage the contract. I am delighted with the outcome, Paula has sourced and delivered an exceptional candidate to match my exact requirement using a detailed, efficient and responsive process. Paula has a great knack for putting you at ease and taking complete care of the task in hand. I would not hesitate to recommend Paula’s services.
Natalie Harmer Director
Paula has supported me as an HR consultant for several months and I have been impressed with her attention to detail and her understanding of UK HR practices. Her advice is both insightful and practical, and demonstrates a clear commercial understanding. She is not afraid to ask difficult questions and seeks the best solution for all parties. Paula is a warm and friendly individual who can communicate easily at all levels of a business. She is a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to other business owners in need of HR services.
Nicola Taylor Director
Paula came to help us out on a finance/data project. Her can-do attitude and enthusiasm makes her a great addition to any team. She has a great work-ethic and attention to detail, ensuring each task was completed accurately and efficiently.
She is not afraid to question the status quo, which is a great way to improve existing processes, and push the team forward. She also proved she was happy to role up her sleeves, and use her wide finance and HR knowledge on a variety of tasks. Invaluable – particularly in smaller organisations!
Theresa Dadun Financial Controller
Since Paula first engaged with the Trigon Solutions Group in 2009 her contribution made a significant impact on the financial well-being of the constituent businesses and the overall interests of the Group as a whole. Her ability to work as a team member, think outside the box and yet stay focussed on the tasks in hand with positive thought processes, assisted greatly in enabling the various advice, sales and support functions to operate with confidence in the competitive front line professional financial services sector. Dealing with any issues arising in a diligent and pragmatic manner, and with an impish sense of humour, Paula endeared herself to colleagues and clients alike and she became a popular and reliable member of the team in a demanding role. Her determined and dedicated persona was deservedly reflected/rewarded when she achieved her Masters Degree in HR Management with Distinction in 2016.
James Lambert – Managing Director

Sally Reeve - Agent
Paula has worked with my company in a financial role for over 3 years and is an excellent member of our team, even though she is a contractor. Paula is very hardworking and also very personable. She has a great sense of humour together with a seriousness when the need arises. She has a great attention to detail, and a good head for business, which has saved us a considerable sum of money. I would highly recommend Paula, and we will continue to use her for both financial and HR roles.
Lance Goodson Managing Director
Paula covered my maternity leave while I was working at Creative Action Design. She is a very quick learner, extremely diligent and has excellent communication skills. She adapted very easily to the way we worked and I know from others that she was a pleasure to have in the team. Everyone was very sad to see her go when I returned!
