Hayley has always been our go to recruiter when we have vacancies to fill. Her clear, concise and honest communication makes the whole recruitment process much easier, compared to other agents who tell you want they think you want to hear. I have also experienced Harvey John as a candidate myself, it is nice to know their professionalism extends to their candidates as well as clients. I look forward to continuing to work with Hayley in the future and would highly recommend Harvey John.


I was battling to find solicitors who were the right fit, it was taking too long and then the candidates were not great. Then I found Harvey John and every single time I have got a candidate quickly who was the perfect fit. Harvey John listens to what you want, searches thoroughly in the market and find you people, who are right each time. What more could you want.
