Welcome to the new Harris Hill website

Search by blog tags

Finding a new job or new talent in the charity sector just got a little easier, as we’re fresh from a digital makeover and excited to bring you the brand new Harris Hill site!-

You'll have had a preview if you visited us in December, but to summarise: based on user feedback and best practice research, we’ve simplified and streamlined throughout to make it easier to navigate, clearer and more accessible to all.​

It’s newly upgraded, fully redesigned, all-singing, all-dancing (ok, not quite but it can talk, more of which in a moment), but beyond the new look you're looking at now, what's changed and how can it help you?

Read on for a rundown of the key benefits, after this short announcement:

If you've previously registered on the site or signed up for job alerts there's nothing you need to re-do.

And if you haven't, just click 'Register' to create an account where you can upload your CV, save jobs of interest, track your applications, manage job alerts and more.

So what's new?

First and foremost we wanted to bring you a more accessible, inclusive site, so along with the new layout and some epic de-cluttering, we’re delighted to welcome a fantastic new feature designed for that very purpose: the Recite Me assistive toolbar.

It's available across all platforms and devices and from any page of the site, via the pink circle at the top of the page (pictured below).

More than 20% of the population can encounter barriers to engaging with the web, due to having a disability, learning difficulty, visual impairment or speaking English as a second language. That's a lot of potential talent to risk needlessly turning away, making a compelling case for something more inclusive and adaptable to individual needs.

Enter the award-winning Recite Me toolbar, packed full of features like screen reading functionality, multiple reading aids, customisable styling options, text-to-speech and live translation into multiple languages - all of which help people tailor the site to their own requirements, enabling a broader audience to engage and apply, opening doors that may otherwise have been closed.

You can check out the dazzling array of options in the user guide here, or via the toolbar itself.

​It's a significant step in our drive for greater diversity and inclusion, and in practical terms, means that no-one need miss out on any of our opportunities. Or indeed a single word of this site, making it a truly diverse blessing (well, 'mixed' is the word people use, but we're sure that's what they mean).

Finding your way

However you engage with the site, we hope you’ll find it easier to navigate, with key information more prominently and intuitively located – where you’d expect it to be, in other words.

That goes for things like our consultant directory, where you'll find the relevant specialist for your kind of role, along with their profile and contact details.

​It's also true of our new recruiter page for charities and not for profit organisations looking to hire, with information on our recruitment services and how to send us a vacancy, among other options.

You'll find both of these and more in the About Us menu.

A smarter job search

As the number one reason for visiting, job search remains at the heart of the site of course, but you'll find improvements coming here too, like new filters to search specifically for remote or hybrid-based roles.

What hasn’t changed is that we only post genuine, current vacancies, and with our trademark transparency we’ll tell you everything about them that we can. That includes the salary for every role, expressed in actual figures rather than vague terms like ‘competitive’, because you need to know what it is, not what it’s like at board games.

Branded charity jobs on the new Harris Hill site

Not unreasonably, you'll probably want to know who you'd be working for too, so we've moved to ensure that when the organisation is named in the ad, you’ll see their logo in search results.

When they can't be named, which isn't to be mysterious but for various reasons that probably warrant their own post, you'll instead see one of our new faux-logos: faux-gos, if you will (possibly fogos if you absolutely insist) - denoting the type of organisation, like a 'Children's Charity' or 'Arts Foundation'.

All of which we hope will make it quicker and easier to scan the listings for your ideal role.

And there's more...

Bringing order where once there was a bit of a mixed bag, you'll now find succinct summaries of our specialist areas (under Specialisms, remarkably), with an emphasis on the people, placements and typical roles involved.

Good news too for fans of the award-eligible Harris Hill Blog: you can now search for content like 'career advice' by category, rather than trying to guess when it might have been published, which we think you'll both find more efficient.

Finally whether you're after a second, third or twenty-third opinion of our service, head to our new reviews and testimonials page to hear some of the very nice things that very nice people have been saying about us via Google Reviews and elsewhere.

And if that's not enough, you can even dim the lights, fire up the Recite Me toolbar and hear someone saying them to you in French, which is even better, we, erm...imagine. ​


You’ll discover further changes and features as you interact with the site, and we'd love to hear what you think. Let us know too if there's anything you'd like to go further in terms of accessibility, in order to provide you with the best possible experience.

In the meantime, whatever your requirements or reason for visiting, we hope you'll find the site easy and enjoyable to use, and if we're not working together already, hopefully we'll have the chance to do so very soon. All the best for the year ahead!
