Osborne Thomas is delighted to be an approved supplier under the HR Services Framework for the Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation (YPO), and we look forward to working with YPO’s partners across the UK in the provision of HR Services and Support Solutions.


Osborne Thomas is an innovative and forward-looking provider management consultancy on HR, recruitment and staffing issues. Specialising in the public sector, we have also attracted the attention of blue chip clients, such as the BBC and FTSE 100-listed Capita plc, as well as an entrepreneurial business working in the Higher Education sector in the UK and China.

We offer advisory services on HR, recruitment and staffing matters. These include, but aren’t limited to, assessing organisational design, advising on processes, reskilling staff and implementing new systems, including applicant tracking systems (ATS), to deliver a higher level of performance. Our clients for these services include the BBC and leading London local authorities. In addition, we support HR in recruitment, retention and development services, including assessment, outplacement, leadership development, and large-scale recruitment including graduate schemes. Our current clients include Kent County Council, for whom we are sole providers of assessment services, London Councils and a variety of local government organisations across the country. We also provide advice, design and implementation for recruitment websites and their integration with HR ATS systems. 

We also support recruitment in hard to fill and specialist areas, providing an executive and middle-management search and selection service, and we have a dedicated interim service, with a large client base in local government. Our interim management service is praised for its ease, speed, professionalism and cost effectiveness. Our clients include: local authorities; the NHS (we are an approved interim supplier under the NMNC Framework); Housing; and Not for Profits (charities; voluntary organisations; social enterprises).

We have an enviable track record of supplying support, either on a project-driven or strategic partner basis, from recruitment issues to retention problem-solving; workforce planning and development through assessment and onwards to outplacement; hard to fill vacancies to mass recruitment; use of temporary agencies to evaluating tenders for ATS and Payroll systems; rebranding to staff satisfaction surveys. We have a large team of specialist consultants, backed up by high quality project teams, to support you in the provision of high quality, forward-looking HR services.
