Harris & Co is one of the most rapidly emerging executive recruitment firms in the United Kingdom. Headquartered in Leeds, we boast a vibrant yet corporate office space in the very heart of the city, just seconds from Leeds train station. We are extremely proud to be part of a wider national group with 2 offices situated just off Oxford Circus in London.
What do we do?
We execute senior search campaigns for market leading businesses in: Heavy Civil Construction, Commercial Construction, Life Sciences and Medical Devices. Focusing on the North American market we have become the first port of call for our partners across the pond. Our bespoke approach and retained methodology ensure we only represent the finest talent on the market.
What are we looking for?
If you are determined to be successful, then this could be the ideal opportunity for you. We are looking for confident communicators and money motivated individuals. Your area of study is not important, if you are articulate and hardworking then we would like to hear from you. Applicants must be comfortable speaking regularly with senior executives over the phone, however this is a more considered and consultative sell than most graduate sales roles. Your ability to source and match candidates is just as important as your commercial acumen.
Above anything else we are looking for grafters. If you can remain tenacious and positive in the face of rejection, then you may well have what it takes. Personality and energy will take you a long way in this role!
This environment is a complete meritocracy, your rate of progression is entirely in your hands. We would expect consultants to exceed £30,000 earnings in their first full year as a minimum expectation. For those consistently performing, management opportunities will be imminently available. Our ‘Fast Track’ Graduate scheme has ensured unprecedented success for our recent trainees but for those who take a little more time, we are very fortunate to have a dedicated full time Training and Development Officer, coaching will be tailored to each individuals’ requirements.
We care about our people!
This is a massively incentivised culture, be it a long weekend in Marbella or Skiing in Courchevel, we offer spectacular experiences to our consultants. Each year our top performer is rewarded with a Rolex!
We have confirmed our maiden trip as a group (all 3 offices) will be to Ibiza later this year so what a time to get on board! Our last 3 Christmas parties (pre lockdown) took place in: Barcelona, Dublin, and Berlin.
Voted one of Yorkshires most exciting companies by ‘Business Insider’ and with plans to open our Miami office later in year confirmed we can’t wait to see what the rest of 2021 has in store. Please include an up-to-date CV with accompanying cover letter. We look forward to receiving your application.
