Specialist SME Support

Starting up a new enterprise, organization or business, along with successful growth, can be hugely exciting, challenging and rewarding. Increasingly however, owners, leaders and teams can feel torn between competing demands on their time, feel like they lack the specialist expertise and experience required and wish they had the support in assuring that not only are best practice, professional people foundations are laid but that people and talent agendas proactively support organisational and business growth and operational requirements; so allowing them to focus on their primary responsibility and role of developing, capturing and delivering business.

To that end, have a special interest, expertise and experience in providing end-to-end and through life people and talent strategy, transformational and operational services and solutions to solopreneurs, micro, SME and family firms.

These people and talent services are specifically tailored to and bespoke for SME’s are delivered by consultants who have dedicated international start-up, micro, SME and family firms’ expertise and experience; allowing SME’s to seize opportunities, address challenges and issues, and build sustainable success and resilience.

People and Talent Sourcing

Perhaps more than ever, enterprises, organisations and businesses, of all shapes and sizes, at all stages of their journey, require the highest calibre of skilled and knowledgeable people and talent to help them shape their futures.

Minerva’s People and Talent Sourcing services specialise in the provision of executive, senior-level, specialist and technical talent for clients internationally, who through their higher value skills, expertise, experience and insight to engagements will help assure that clients achieve their strategic, transformational and operational objectives.

Our approach is focused on the three pillars of collaboration, relationship and service. As a trusted people partner, we seek to build long-term, collaborative relationships; and through a smarter, intelligent and deeper understanding of what your people and talent agendas and objectives are, serve and support you better.

For us, it is not just about providing people in the right roles at the right time in the right place in a cost-effective and flexible manner that suits you; it is about the judicious selection and placement of talent who match not just your technical role and responsibility requirements, but are in harmony with your brand, culture, environment and values; and through their expertise, experience and insight can proactively add real weight and value to your enterprise, organisation or business operations; and deliver tangible results, outcomes and competitive advantage.

We provide clients with two sources of people and talent. The first is our own rich and diverse network and pool of British, Commonwealth and international talent. Drawn from military, government, business and academic circles and of an exemplary professional calibre and pedigree, our senior-level talent brings to clients extensive international, multidisciplinary and multisector expertise and experience.

Complementing this, we offer clients a full suite of external sourcing services and end to end, through life deployment support; from recruitment, assessment and selection to operational life support and specialist sector sourcing.

We offer clients five primary talent sourcing services.

Laedan Service

Our PaaS capability is particularly orientated towards solopreneurs, micros, SME and family firms; particularly those who have highly flexible and diverse operational talent requirements.

In the current global pandemic crisis, the PaaS capability affords clients the opportunity to deploy remote talent on an add value and cost-effective basis.

Initium Service

Our Initium service is specialist focused on providing start-up enterprises, organisations and businesses with the specialist leadership, functional and operational expertise and talent to ensure that they lay the deep, best practice, foundations and optimise initial operations to help assure momentum, sustainability and resilience.

A key pillar of our people and talent consulting is supporting clients in the use of deep data, information and intelligence in enhancing people and talent agendas, initiatives and operations.

The NOVI Programme

For clients of all shapes and sizes, we run a specialist NOVI (new men) scheme, which is focused upon providing organisations of all shapes and sizes with graduate and young talent, predominantly from Oxbridge and Russell Group universities and from Eton and Rugby Group public schools.

The programme is designed to be a two-way win-win, providing organisations with fresh, young talent who are more cost-effective, whilst providing graduates and junior leaders with opportunities to lay outstanding, board, foundations to their career, with clients knowing that they are playing a vital and socially constructive role.

People and Talent Development

No matter what size and shape your organisation is, highly skilled talent with knowledge and expertise are mission-critical, especially in rapidly changing global and technological environments. Whatever their strategic and operational objectives and requirements, it is critical that leadership teams build and develop high-impact organisational learning and continually develop its teams and talent.

Research has also shown that organisations and firms which invest in their people both attract and retain higher quality, engaged and loyal talent.

Such ongoing development knowledge and skills development must blend both older, established and transferable alongside new and emerging knowledge and skills, from soft skills to understanding and using artificial intelligence, machine learning and technology, with almost 90% of business leaders emphasising the critical importance of training and developing their talent in new and emerging fields.
