About BrightHR

BrightHR is dedicated to attracting the best and brightest talent from the North West to ensure their product and services stay ahead of the rest. The organisation recently launched a £1 million recruitment drive to help meet international demand for their product.

The dedication to creating innovative and customer-led technology makes working at BrightHR exciting, fast-paced and challenging. It's a place where every employee is an integral part of the journey.

There are many ways BrightHR reward employees for their hard work, including days off on birthdays and free monthly parties. The most effective initiative they have in place is the profit share scheme, as a company experiencing rapid growth, BrightHR believe that employees should reap the benefits of the success, because without their hard work, they wouldn't be where they are today.

Giving back to the local community is important for BrightHR. Employees take part in a number of activities and since January 2019 these have included taking part in the Manchester 10K Run, charity abseil, Summer fun day that raised money for their charity partner, a Tough Mudder event and much more.
