How a start-up consultancy is generating jobs here at flourishing Ocean Village Innovation Centre in Southampton.

Business based at OVIC

Stellamar expanded to 800 sq ft from 300 sq ft at our serviced offices hub in just nine months since moving in. The firm, founded and led by Adam Myers and aided by colleague Alasdair MacMillan, provides practical and strategic HR advice to companies in southern England who don’t have salaried HR staff.

“Thanks to Rob and his team of centre support assistants, we’ve had a great start. From the two of us originally, there are now 11 and we anticipate a 12th appointment soon, hence why we keep upsizing the office. Whilst the commercial demand is clearly there, I needed a helping hand to help expand Stellamar in a profitable way, with a sustainable growth plan rooted in reality rather than hope. OVIC was able to point us in the right direction regarding this.”

Adam Myers, Founder & Head of HR Solutions

Adam previously worked in HR for a recruitment company and has 20 years’ experience with businesses such as Safeway, Morrisons, Hamleys of London and Walt Disney World. Stellamar is also developing its maritime sector recruitment expertise, placing bridge crew for cruiser liners and container ships around the world. Furthermore, there are plans to move into global procurement and supply in the sea-faring industry, as well as shipyards, with HR consultancy feeding in.
