Harry has been working at Harris Hill for over two years and is our specialist for all things related to Policy, External Affairs, Advocacy and Campaigns, recruiting both domestically and internationally.
He graduated from the University of Nottingham with a degree in French and German and has previously lived and worked in France and Germany. Having previously worked in social media and youth engagement for a national human rights charity, he now works to add value to social action, campaigning and third-sector influencing.
A self-confessed politics nerd, Harry is particularly interested in how real change happens; whether that’s through cross-sector, hand-in-hand partnership working, public mobilisation, political influencing or otherwise. Some of his favourite campaigns of the past two years include School Strike for Climate and the US-based March for Our Lives.
Harry’s an entrepreneurially-minded lover of animals and environmental sustainability, and is always on the lookout for recommendations for his reading list.
"Harry Marven and Harris Hill supported us with a recent recruitment drive to source a Head of Department for our charity. I cannot speak highly enough of Harry’s knowledge, experience, skill base and understanding of what we needed right from the get go.
He spent quality time with us to ensure he had a really good appreciation not just for the skills required by us from a candidate but importantly the actual sort of person we were looking for in a holistic sense that fitted well within our culture.
He took efforts to ensure he had a really good knowledge of who we are as an organisation and then understand what we really needed from an agency whilst being flexible and creating a bespoke service for us based on our requirements. The candidate pool sent over to us really hit the mark and I would not hesitate to recommend both Harry and the services of Harris Hill. He is a real asset to this agency and the recruitment arena as a whole.
I personally very much appreciated his honesty, integrity and conversations as a critical friend when working through this drive.This goes a long way from a client perspective and we felt Harry had an exceptional understanding of commitment to customer service and excellent working relationships.Thank you Harry and Harris Hill and keep doing great work!"
