OUR COMPANY
We match outstanding talent to exceptional opportunities. Our passion and commitment enables us to place the very best candidates in leading companies around the globe.

Recent years have seen a boom in Executive Search business worldwide. With this surge in competition in mind, creating a sustainable competitive advantage for both ourselves and our clients is more important than ever. We have noticed a lot of generic practice groups and a lack of necessary industry focus inside our competition. The feedback we have received from our clients shows us that the obvious value levers to pull in the race for perfection are those that create an intense industry focus in each of our teams.

The Executive Search industry has presented many Executives with a much-needed outfit to hire talent. The internet, easy global access, and social networking have created a densely populated market which can make it difficult to pick out the ‘right fit’ by using only an inhouse Talent Acquisition/Recruitment team. The reason for this is often a shortfall of industry experience inside the in-house team, along with a lack of first- hand knowledge of how their competition are hiring – we have both.

“Our internal recruitment process for Harrison James Search Consultants is equally as rigorous as that which we provide for our clients – we only hire the best; not just those who are academically and technically brilliant, but those who are culturally diverse and well-rounded too.”

SENIOR LEADERSHIP
Our Senior Leadership team has a combined 30+ years’ experience. Our shared values and commitment to Harrison James’s future enables us to coach, train and guide our team to deliver the very best results for our clients, time after time.

SETTING THE BENCHMARK

We’ve built our foundations around three distinctive aims to ensure we don’t just do what is needed; we set the bar of excellence. We appoint the best people, first time, every time.

Create lasting competitive advantage for our clients.

Live and breathe industry growth patterns to stay ahead of the game.
‘Knowledge-rich’ Culture

We are now seeing problems arise quicker than ever in the era of instant dispersion through e-commerce. The technocratic shift in required skills means a deeper knowledge of our clients’ pressing needs (technical, not just corporate) is crucial. With this in mind, we foster a ‘knowledge-rich’ culture.

Client-Centric

At Harrison James, we believe in a truly personal approach. Transactional relationships are a thing of the past – we focus on fostering lasting, meaningful, and valuable relationships with our clients. We work on the same side of the table in a Partnership model to ‘live and breathe’ our clients’ recruitment initiatives.

Professionalism

Harrison James is a professional services firm from its periphery to its core. We don’t just ‘sell’ recruitment services, we create effective professional recruitment solutions for our clients. When both the product we deliver, and the client being served, are people, it is imperative for professionalism to be a core driver of how an Executive Search firm operates. We do not deviate from this imperative.

Interlinked

Our Consultants are engrained members of our internal corporate community. We take this very seriously – when part of the Harrison James network, our Consultants are a part of a broader vision of trust and integrity. Our deep trust in one another; our single-firm-vision; and our mutual-benefits aligned compensation structure creates the environment needed for success beyond that of personal gain.
