Fresh Thinking provide high calibre, part-time Senior Managers to owner managed and family businesses.

We give Small and Medium sized businesses access to an outstanding senior skill set, and all the expertise they need, for much lower cost and much less risk than taking on a full-time senior colleague. We specialise in 4 key areas:

Our Part-Time Senior Manager Services

Human Resources


Health & Safety

Strategy & Planning

Experienced. Hands On. Affordable.

We specialise in the 4 areas that small and medium sized companies are often more careful about taking on full-time senior colleagues straightaway. So Fresh Thinking is here to plug that gap for you.

Companies can use us flexibly, as and when they need us, from as little as 1 day a month, up to 1 or 2 days per week.

You enjoy complete flexibility, as we don’t work with contracts. So we can easily change the amount of time we work together as your business requires.

Our Part-Time Senior Manager services are perfect for businesses who don’t need or can’t afford a full-time senior colleague, but who recognise they need the specialist skill set on an ongoing basis.

With us you avoid the time-consuming process of recruiting a full-time colleague and then waiting weeks for them to come on board. We are ready to start quickly and contribute from day 1.

We are always committed to working with businesses for the long term, just like any full-time member of staff.

“The reason I created Fresh Thinking came from my many meetings with owners of small and medium sized companies during the years when I was leading similar businesses.

I met so many who were missing out on the powerful benefits and huge value that outstanding HR, Marketing and Strategy would bring to their business. Mainly because they couldn’t afford to take on a full-time specialist in these areas. But also because there was no one to help them bring these skills in on a part-time basis.

So the idea for Fresh Thinking was born”.
