Comments from our Clients and Candidates

MES have used Harris Hill for 5 years as a sole supplier for all of our temporary staff. We are often working to short timescales and we need staff to work in rural locations. We have always found our contacts at Harris Hill to go the extra mile to ensure that we have the correct people for the job. The best thing about our relationship is that they really understand what we are looking for from our staff and this helps as it means we don’t waste time training and re training unsuitable candidates. There is also a lot of flexibility around our requirements and they are extremely patient despite having to deal with challenging situations. I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone needing help resourcing staff.

I want to thank Harris Hill for the very considerable help we all received from your Executive Search. The process was exemplary; a large pile of applications, adeptly whittled down, with a successful appointment at the end. The process was both rigorous and transparent; which was very important given the circumstances.


There were a number of key senior fundraisers who were greatly impressed by the quality of Harris Hill’s service, which I'm very pleased about. We couldn't have done it better, so I do thank you.


Please pass my thanks to the whole team at Harris Hill and say a huge 'well done' - it was a real pleasure working with you all.


Stephen Pidgeon, Trustee at the Institute of Fundraising

I have been delighted to work with Harris Hill on a couple of different vacancies and I have been extremely pleased with the results! Their experience within the hospice sector; their commitment to understanding the culture of our charity and their skill in matching candidates to fit our needs means that we will most certainly partner with them again should the need arise.


Alison Goodman, Director of Income Generation from Noah’s Ark Hospice (for Dawn Ballard)

Harris Hill sourced two candidates on behalf of The Children's Trust. I was impressed by how well the recruitment process was managed from start to finish and delighted to have interviewed candidates who were exactly what we were looking for both in terms of skills and experience and culture fit for our organisation


Rob Wood, Marketing & Communications Manager, The Children's Trust (for Nick Shanks)

I am certain that we have secured an outstanding individual for the charity, in the confidence that we have undertaken a thorough and rigorous search of a wide range of high-quality candidates. Excellent support was also provided to us in facilitating the final interviews, and leading the panel discussions to a satisfactory conclusion.


I have no hesitation in recommending to the Trustees that Harris Hill be retained for future Senior Level recruitment assignments, or in recommending Harris Hill to other charities.


Gary Clarke, Trustee of Demelza Hospice Care for Children

Harris Hill have provided Marie Curie Cancer Care with some high quality regular giving fundraisers.

Thomas Lavery – Marie Curie

I was impressed with the service I received, always keeping me informed and responding promptly to my queries. The candidate put forward to me for consideration was also great – just the person I was looking for, resulting in her successful recruitment.


Kate Longhurst, Canal and River Trust

May I take this opportunity to say that I have dealt with many recruitment consultancies in my recent search for a new job and without any doubt you have been the most professional I have come across by an outstanding margin. As you will know it can be a traumatic process looking for a job in today’s market; many agencies see the employer as the customer and not the employee. You have treated me as a customer too and with the utmost respect and have kept me informed within the timescales given.


Executive candidate

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Harris Hill on my recent career move. I've used Harris Hill in the past to help with a key vacancy and found the team to be super efficient and really switched on to my needs as a charity. As a candidate, I have found them to be really supportive and genuinely concerned to ensure my questions were fully answered and that as well as being the right appointment for their client, it was also the right move for me. It's refreshing to work with such a committed and professional firm.


Executive candidate

My experience with Harris Hill would definitely be one I would recommend. The consultant who handled our recruitment was very warm, friendly and engaging, you immediately felt like you were working with a friend. She visited our premises to get a feel of our environment, and the department where the vacancy was, so she could get the best fit for the role. I was thoroughly impressed with that approach. She made the recruitment painless and we ended up with what I believe is the best candidate for the role.


Valerie Rogers, Crisis Action

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and Harris Hill for your wonderful efforts in finding us such a lovely person. We will certainly use Harris Hill again and would welcome you being our consultant again.


Paul Tomlinson, Community and Events Fundraising Manager South East, Stroke Association (for Dawn Ballard)

I wanted to thank you again for the time taken to prepare me for my recent job interview. Your professional guidance and advice helped me to prepare better for job interviews and secure an exciting role which allows me to develop further my accounting skills. Thank you again.


Finance candidate

Harris Hill provide a professional reliable service and have helped us fill a number of niche roles. They understand our business and our ethos and they always provide an excellent selection of high calibre candidates to choose from. All those who we have appointed from HH have also been excellent fits culturally.

HH are on our preferred suppliers list and I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone.

Mary Holt, Livability

Thank you all for your help over the last few years, you've really helped to keep me afloat in very challenging times. May I add that of the many agencies I've used, you stand head and shoulders above the rest and I always recommend Harris Hill to friends and colleagues alike.


Oliver Talbot, placed in various temp roles

Harris Hill supported my job-hunting with a remarkable professionalism and a personal approach. I felt supported at every step of the process and Nick made me feel as if I was his only candidate. He took the effort to meet me in person and better understand my profile; understood my ambitions and gave me clever tips to support my research. I definitely suggest Harris Hill to anyone who wishes to find a brilliant opportunity in the charity sector.


Recently placed candidate, for Nick Shanks

Malaria No More UK has ambitious goals, and the successful appointment of a Director of Communications is a key element in our strategic development. We were delighted with the informed advice and support that Harris Hill Executive Search provided during the assignment. They kept us informed throughout the process and we went on to recruit an excellent Director of Communications.

Sarah Kline, Executive Director of Malaria No More UK

I want to say 'thank you' for all your work helping Springboard for Children find a new CEO. I was very impressed with the efficient, professional and effective recruitment service you provided. It was a pleasure working with you.


Marc Braithwaite, Springboard for Children

I'm pleased to recommend the services of Harris Hill, who were engaged by DEBRA to recruit a member of the senior management team. Throughout the process of recruitment, they proved to be efficient and helpful. From the outset, they invested time to understand our organisation and specific requirements, and this ensured that the short listed candidates were all highly suitable and of an excellent calibre. We have appreciated the professionalism of their services, and would use Harris Hill again in the future.


Ben Merrett, Chief Executive of DEBRA

TCS have worked closely with Harris Hill recruitment on a variety of assignments both temporary and permanent hire. During this period, one consistent feature of the relationship has been Harris Hill and its Account Managers' ability to understand our requirements and objectives and deliver candidates in the most efficient and effective way. When recruiting for key vacancies in my team, I feel that I have a partner in Harris Hill as opposed to a simple transactional process. I would highly recommend Harris Hill to other charities!
