What our clients say
Fantastic charity sector recruiter: very responsive, highest level of professionalism, supportive of candidates, thorough in both process and consideration, honest job adverts and they stick to advertised timetables and stages.
As a client, the experience was very clear and very smooth. Thank you Aled, Frances and all the team at Harris Hill. I would absolutely recommend this recruiter to all charities and all candidates looking for their next opportunity.
Excellent service and back up from Jenny Hills at Harris Hill when we recruited our new Hospice CEO. I can’t recommend highly enough.
Ian Turner, Chair of Trustees, St Elizabeth Hospice
I have worked with a number of recruiters at Harris Hill and each has been incredibly kind, helpful, and professional.
They have found my organisation some truly amazing hires, and I’m thankful for their hard work and the strong relationship we have! I know I can count on Harris Hill whenever a new search in the UK opens.
We worked with Harris Hill to recruit our Director of Development - crucial for a start-up charity. Hannah Laking held our hands through the process, was collaborative in problem solving, sensitive to our needs (important for an LGBTQ+ charity), and has delivered us our dream candidate who, I'm delighted to write, started this week.
As a consultant I often support Boards of Trustees who need to recruit an excellent CEO. I always suggest Harris Hill as my experience is that the cost is massively outweighed by their ability to access a far wider range of excellent candidates than can be done by simply advertising in the usual places.
I have worked with Jenny at Harris Hill on four assignments; in each case the charity has successfully recruited an excellent CEO, directly as a result of the involvement of Harris Hill. I will continue to recommend them to any charity I work with who need a new CEO.
I would highly recommend Harris Hill to any charity or NGO that is looking for recruitment support.
Aled and Frances were extremely professional, helpful and responsive.
What our candidates say
What a fantastic recruitment experience! Lizzy at Harris Hill was the only recruiter during my job hunt that actually listened to what I wanted in a role, didn't make me feel underqualified and came through with the perfect opportunity.
Now I'm on to pastures new and a path that I'm very excited about! Thank you so much.
I've always known of Harris Hill as one of the leading names in fundraising recruitment, but never worked closely with them until my most recent job search.
They matched me with the ideal role and my recruiter, Hannah Laking, supported me every step of the way in securing it. The agency's reputation is well-deserved.
Dagmara at Harris Hill has been a great consultant. I am returning to a contract role after some time off following bereavement, and from the start Dagmara has been so supportive.
A great recruitment company that has some humanity and support for their candidates is unusual. Thank you!
Nick Shanks has been incredibly supportive and attentive over the last six months while I have been searching for my next role. He spent significant time on the phone/Zoom with me sharing his professional advice and expertise, helping me to refine my applications and prepare for interviews.
Nick is one of the few recruiters who genuinely cares about placing people in the right roles.
Highly dedicated recruitment agency, would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking in the charity sector.
I've been quite sceptical of agencies in the past, but from start to finish I had a great experience working with Hannah Whittington, who helped set me up with an interview and feedback for a job I eventually interviewed for and was hired.
With Harris Hill it felt like you were more than a number, more than another name on their books.
I've worked with Ryan and honestly have always had the best experience. Very professional young man. Always succinct and honest about roles/suitability and we have had very good success.
I will definitely have Harris Hill and Ryan as my 'go-to' on recruitment agencies. I know if Ryan is contacting me I don't need to filter, as he will have already assessed the role to be a good match.
Donna, temp candidate
I had the best experience with Harris Hill. Lizzy was brilliant - super helpful and friendly and made the job hunting/application process much easier and much less stressful. Communication was excellent and I was only ever sent relevant jobs that suited my skill set and requirements.
If you're looking for a career change I can't recommend going through Harris Hill enough. Thank you so much!
I am now on my second EA assignment with Harris Hill thanks to Sekai and both assignments have been a great fit!
I recommend Harris Hill to anyone looking for temp roles in the charity sector.
It’s been so refreshing to work with Hannah, she has been an absolute delight from the outset.
Whilst transitioning into the sector I was unsure how to go about it. Hannah took the time to listen to my concerns, aspirations and experience, gave me career and CV advice and coached me through the interview process.
Having found me the perfect role, she continued to keep in touch and over two years later still checks in to see how things are going.
Sekai has been absolutely brilliant!
Her support throughout the process of securing me a temp job has been outstanding. Very pleased, thank you!
Hannah was incredible, she was so helpful with interview prep and understanding how difficult the job market is at the moment.
I managed to secure a position after a year of being unemployed and I couldn’t have done it without her. I couldn’t recommend Harris Hill more!
