Experts in recruiting recruiters

Who we are

We’re an eclectic bunch at Harrison Sands. We’re all very different which shouldn’t work, but it does. We’re very open about this and embrace it. In fact, when recruiting it’s our differing personalities that means that for many recruiters we are their first and only choice as a rec2rec.  The same goes for clients who are looking for the best recruitment talent too.  

What’s really important to us is that everyone receives the best possible, ethical recruitment service.

If you’re looking for a trusted recruitment partner to either find or fill a job, then get in touch

Meet the team


Katie Coates - Managing Director

“If you’re looking for a straight-talking recruiter, who listens to you – I’m going to be right up your street. I’ve been in the recruitment industry for over 20 years and have built up a solid network in this time so can present you with great opportunities and at times roles that aren’t advertised or with other rec2rec’s. I understand that it’s hugely important that your next recruitment role is right for you, so I only present you with opportunities that meet / exceed your expectations. If you are looking for your next recruitment role, get in touch, I won’t waste your time.”

Shona Wainwright - Associate Director

“I started with Harrison Sands at the very beginning, and in 10 years we’ve built an amazing business. It’s been a journey of course, but I am so incredibly proud of the client and candidate base we’ve built in that time. I love the fact we’re viewed as a trusted advisor and not ‘just another rec2rec’ and I will always work hard to ensure that you get what you’re looking for culturally, practically as well as commercially.”

Caitlyn Spencer - Senior Recruitment Consultant

“After working within Education Recruitment for the last 7 years, I decided to make the move into Rec2Rec so I could work with and assist like-minded recruiters within the Education, Healthcare, and Social Care sectors to find their next role!

I will always listen to your wants and needs and only ever present you with opportunities which tick the boxes. I will never pressure you if the role isn’t right!

If you are looking for a Rec2Rec who will always be honest with you, have your best interests at heart and has bags of market knowledge then I would love to chat with you!”

Beth Carter

Beth Carter - Recruitment Consultant

I began my recruitment career 3 and a half years ago running a busy Commercial temp desk. I then decided it was time for a challenge and that’s where my Rec2Rec journey started!

Honesty and integrity are ingrained in my work and personal life, and you can always place trust in me whilst I represent you. I will match your skill set to the correct role ensuring that the partnership between you and the employer is the best fit for you both.

If you are looking for an honest and relatable Rec2Rec to take all the stress out of your next job move, get in touch!

Sarah Wass - Headhunter

“I freelance for Harrison Sands because I’m passionate about placing people in jobs. I’ve worked in HR and recruitment for over 20 years and have sat on both sides of the recruitment fence. As a result, I only work with and represent candidates I would employ.   

I represent Harrison Sands because we truly believe in partnering talent with clients in a no nonsense, practical and pragmatic way.”
