Harris Associates Launches New Head Hunting Service

Harris Associates Limited News and PR from Harris Associates Limited - Published 15 April 2016 A new bespoke head hunting service has been launched in a bid to match high quality staff with expanding companies.
Robert Harris (pictured) decided to branch out after he found that his clients, intent on growth, were struggling to find high calibre staff and engineers.

He has now launched a head hunting service through his Harris Associates business which already covers the UK, with staff spread across England and Wales searching for suitable candidates.

Robert, Company Director, said: "This is a new initiative for us, and we are already delighted with the early results.

"My company specialises in tendering for a variety of clients seeking new contracts and in just two years we have helped them win over £200 million in contracts.

"But what has become clear is that after they win contracts they can then find it difficult to find quality staff and engineers to service the expansion.

"So what we have done is to create an opportunity for our clients by setting up this service, trading on our high quality and low cost model, to match up the best talent for our customers.

"One of our recent requests was a qualified gas engineer in London to speak three Asian
languages. I gave this to our most experienced Head Hunter, Kaz, who found him!"

Kaz Chaudry, Head Hunter with Harris Associates, has more than 20 years’ experience and his national network of contacts is helping to deliver the right candidates to clients.

Robert, 48, emphasised that Harris Associates can offer the head hunting service to new clients, and it is not limited to companies that are using the company’s tendering service.

"We can, on request undertake fast checks on their integrity, their right to work in the UK, money laundering, DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) and our aim is to undertake everything quickly and with high quality, matching the right individual to the company without the usual headaches.." said Robert.

Before he set up Harris Associates, he evaluated tenders for companies worth up to £750 million. Robert has then used that experience to help him advise clients on how to write the contract winning tender, ranging from the construction industry to funeral undertakers.

"It became clear that company directors had businesses to run and couldn’t dedicate the time and resource to bid effectively. They also didn’t know how to obtain the best from their tender submissions. So Harris Associates grew from there. ‘However, its important to me that we give back to the community and, being an ardent rugby fan,
it was only natural that we should sponsor the Treat Trust Cup, a wheelchair rugby international between the four home nations to raise money to assist those with spinal injuries,’ said Robert.
This is a new initiative for us, and we are already delighted with the early results
