What We Do

Progressive recruiters, traditional values

We find potential in every corner of the market.

As professional recruiters, it’s our responsibility to make even the most passive of candidates realise where their potential can take them. From traditional recruitment techniques to an unrivalled number of cutting-edge sourcing methods, our consultants know how to generate responses from the entire market. In fact, our response rates are 3x greater than the industry average.

Reach Further

Re-evaluating and improving is central to the way we work.

With the Accountancy, Tax & Treasury, and Legal markets shifting rapidly, our agility is fundamental to successfully recruit in these sectors.

Being attuned to market changes and business trends is not always enough. Our success is rooted in how we immerse ourselves in our markets and strive for more knowledge; we’re more than just transactional recruiters – we’re agile consultants.

Stay Agile

Our experience can’t be taught, and this gives us something truly unique.

We’ve experienced how markets change, how technology reshapes industries, and how today’s workforce is different to tomorrow’s.

But as the markets continue to evolve, our values remain the same. Long-term partnerships, credibility in our sectors, and striving to be tomorrow’s expert; this keeps recruitment a simple and successful process for you.

Tax & Treasury

With changes in the tax world – from globalisation, finance transformation, digitalisation, and the implementation of BEPS – businesses are now actively adopting more thoughtful approaches to tax, creating a heightened profile of the ‘tax professional’ in the global market.

In this changing tax landscape, a responsive approach to recruitment is pivotal to mapping out and engaging tomorrow’s tax talent. This is where the Harvey John recruitment agency comes in. With specialisms in Direct Tax, Indirect Tax and Tax Technology (EMEA), and more niche focuses on Customs, Trade Compliance and Insurance Premium Tax, our team is well-equipped to bring successful candidates and clients together. Areas covered are London, Brighton, Amsterdam, Dubai, Spain, Belgium, Bahrain and elsewhere.

As a dedicated treasury recruiter, Harvey John can advise and assist businesses of all shapes and sizes with recruiting the treasury expertise they require. Whether this be a growing SME looking to recruit its first treasury specialist, a global multinational corporation or a bank lacking a particular skill set within its existing treasury team.

Global, in-house legal teams, Legal 100 law firms, and national and prestigious local practices are some of the clients we recruit for.

We have fantastic roles within the Private Practice and In-house specialisms in Brighton, Kent, Berkshire, Surrey and elsewhere for Solicitors, Legal Executives, Legal Counsel and other legal professionals, from Newly Qualified through to Partner/General Counsel level. But we’re more than just a job board. We pride ourselves on our advisory and consultative service to both clients and candidates. We know what the market is doing and no one is better placed than us to help you navigate it.

At Creasey we love working woth David and his team at Harvey John because they understand the bigger picture! They have invested the time to really get to know us as a business, what we are about now and our vision for what we want to achieve in the future.


Haley has placed two excellent candidates with my in-house legal team. I was impresssed with requirements and her ability to execute on these. I would recommend Hayley for legal in house roles recruitment.


David was absolutely brilliant. He took a measured and considered approach. Really listening to what our needs were, rather than just trying to fit a potential candidate (square peg) into our requirements (round hole).
