The genesis of Harrison James was brought about by an exceptional set of Consultants from their previous Executive Search firm heritage, based in Leeds in the UK. These Consultants spent their careers pioneering new, innovative and most importantly – extremely effective recruitment solutions for their clients. The results spoke for themselves, and from there – their CEO agreed to make the logical investment to create Harrison James – the first Executive Search firm of its kind – to set a precedent and mark an industry standard for value-adding recruitment solutions. It is these systems and processes which Harrison James uses to serve its clients.
We pride ourselves on building winning relationships with both clients and candidates through in-depth sector expertise. Each of our industry practices has its own research team, which works in parallel with each Consultant to provide frequent updates on shifting industry-trends. Similarly, our Consultants provide feedback to our research teams with any additional information uncovered during the screening/interview process – we leave no stone unturned, the result of which is an incredibly rich base of knowledge-capital which we utilise in an advisory capacity for future clients. Our ethos is focused on our value adding capabilities undergoing continued growth – we only ever take steps forward.
