We were initially rather sceptical about appointing a recruitment agency to find us a replacement CEO. This opinion being based purely on past unsuccessful experiences with other agencies. However, Aled and Jenny from Harris Hill quickly proved themselves in a different league. After listening closely to our brief and making potential candidates very aware of the role, they not only provided a highly relevant long list, they guided the shortlisting and selection process with total professionalism. The Trustees have commented on the difference that Harris Hill made to the whole process and we would not hesitate to recommend them.
