Our specialist consultants and teams

Harry Marven

Consultant - Policy, Public Affairs, Advocacy and Campaigns

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 took the time to really understand what makes me tick and where I was in my career - this made a huge difference to the rest of the job-hunting process. Harry was a pleasure to work with - smart, proactive and supportive at all times. I had a great experience and would heartily recommend his services.

Duncan Lugton, Head of Policy and Public Affairs, Centre for Justice Innovation

"Working with Harry is an absolute pleasure. With enormous empathy and curiosity, he takes the time to understand perspectives, motivations and absolute requirements in a way that few others do. I suspect this is a key reason behind his effectiveness. I have a huge amount of trust in him and would recommend him wholeheartedly to employers and candidates alike.”

“I have found Harris Hill and Harry excellent in partners in finding the right person to fill the Head of External Affairs role. There have been no issues and service has been delivered in a highly professional manner.”
