North East consultancy Auxin OKR has announced a senior recruitment drive over the coming months, bucking an industry trend which is currently seeing many advisory brands slimming their respective headcounts. Thanks to a number of major new contract wins, Auxin OKR plans to hire five new partners.

Speaking on the firm’s progress, Auxin OKR Managing Director Peter Kerr said, “Auxin has been around for many years, running as a small, successful generic business support consultancy. But since we reviewed our own objectives and invested in developing our focus and expertise in OKRs we have completely changed our model, reached outside of the North East to win work with larger and more corporate clients.”

Following its re-modelling in 2019, Auxin OKR offers a range of interim support services for growing businesses, those often challenged by limits of resource and experience. The Tynemouth headquartered firm’s offering includes OKR training, business strategy, sales and business development, and digital transformation, among other services.

Over the firm’s first 12 months in business, Auxin OKR has landed a range of new corporate clients around the UK and overseas, including Legal & General, Which?, Rolls-Royce, and South African banking group Absa. The business coaching consultancy is now planning to accelerate its global expansion with a senior recruitment drive. This will see the firm appoint two new partners in its UK wing, and three partners for its overseas divisions.

Kerr added, “We’re proud of our North East roots and would like to work with more high-growth companies that we know are around the region. But we’re pleased to have exported our expertise nationally and even to places like South Africa and perhaps further afield in the coming year.”

The company is also looking to join a wider international network of OKR specialists. OKR (Objectives and Key Results) is a goal system used by Google and others. It is a tool to create alignment and engagement around measurable goals.
