At Harrison Sands we love what we do. Finding the right recruitment roles for our national network of candidates and placing them with progressive employers right across the UK is hugely satisfying. From time to time our candidates and clients choose to send us written thanks in the form of a testimonial, and with their permission we’ve shared a handful of those on this page so you can see the kind of feedback we’re receiving for the services we provide.

Shona was so helpful and lovely throughout the whole process made it so easy. Thanks so much!!
Isabel Morris
Had an absolutely amazing experience with Harrison Sands! Spoke with Katie and Shona and they were top tier!
Matthew Travis
Elle was great from the first point of contact. She knows the importance of building strong relationships , in a friendly and and professional manner. She understood what is I'm looking for in my new role and she never pushed me to meet a company I wasn't 100% sure about. Elle knows her clients very well and what they offer. She is trying her best to match the right client and the right candidate. I'm now looking forward to start in my new role. Thanks to Elle, I found a great company.
Melania Rus
Highly recommend to anybody wanting to change agency or start their career in recruitment. I spoke to both Katie and Shona at Harrison Sands when I decided that I wanted a change from my employer at the time and they were a breath of fresh air. Within a few days of making contact they had gone through all of the potential options that they worked with, giving me an in depth and honest view of the culture, pitfalls and perks at each company. A week later I had interviewed with both of their suggestions and I am now one month into working for my new employer and it is everything they told me it would be.
I worked with Paisley and Shona when I was deciding what to do when I had finished university. They were both massively supportive and secured me an interview at my current role. They prepared me and followed up throughout the whole process. I couldn't recommend them more! Thanks again to the team at Harrison Sands!
Nell Waterhouse
Big thank you to Paisley and Shona on pulling the strings on a great placement for me when a time came for me to move from my previous employer. Both very professional and were always there for any questions that I needed answering. Both are a massive credit to the company in which I would highly recommend!
Vytas Vaznys
After taking a short break and debating a career change I decided to start a CV library account. I was wondering about going into recruitment which was confirmed by a very helpful and insightful phone call from Shona. Shona gained me an interview very quickly with a recruitment agency based in Halifax. I worked with said company for 3 weeks until they stated they couldn’t take another employee on for financial reasons. I was understandably annoyed but called Shona who was more than sympathetic and helped gain me another interview for my current employer. Couldn’t recommend Shona and the work she does more! If the rest of Harrison Sands is like her then I would definitely recommend them too!

I applied for a job that Harrison Sands were advertising for. I spoke to Shona, who listened to what I wanted from my next role. She got me an interview and then suggested other companies which would be relevant to the sector I was working in. Straight away she arranged two interviews and I came away with two offers. I can’t thank Shona enough or recommend her if you’re looking for a Rec2Rec to help you find your next role! Thanks once again!

I had contact with Paisley, she helped me through the process of finding new recruitment from start to finish, she was very helpful and kept me up to date each step of the way.
Amy Turtle
Worked with Shona. I highly recommend. She offered excellent advice regarding my next best career move, and the service was very professional.
Tawanda Chikura
Shona has been amazing from start to finish! Quick and easy process with only suitable jobs to offer. I explained exactly what I needed in terms of a culture fit and responsibilities in my role and I got more than what I asked for. Genuinely cannot thank Shona enough for finding me the best position with the perfect company. The whole process was hassle free. No speculative emails or constant missed calls for no reason - which I have always found with other rec2rec companies. Harrison Sands deliver to a professional standard and treat you how you should be treated, with respect, care and enthusiasm towards your goal. If it seems too good to be true, it's not, they just do an amazing job at matching you to suitable companies. Again, thank you so much Shona, you restored my faith in rec2recs and I'm so happy you helped me find the right place, all within a week! Incredible 🙂
Tia Walsh
Easily the best R2R I’ve dealt with, knew exactly what I was looking for and presented me with the perfect options! Also really informative throughout the whole process and made what can usually be a stressful process really fun! Highly recommend!
Lee Robinson
Whilst considering a career change Katie was recommended to me by a client she had already successfully and happily placed. Knowledgeable, empathetic and genuinely fun to converse with, she helped endorse my wish to pursue a career within recruitment. I was fortunate to also engage with Shona, who showed enthusiasm, understanding and patience to match me with the right company with whom to start my new career. Placed. Happy. I would heartily recommend both Katie and Shona and therefore, Harrison Sands.
Brad Gibbons
Recruiter Elle Stephenson helped me every step of the way to secure me my current job role! I’m loving every moment of my new work life thanks to her devotion to finding me what I needed! Thank you once again!
Eliot Ruben
Absolutely can not recommend Harrison Sands more. Loved working with Shona, currently in a role via them. Pop them a call to start the process!
Jonathan James
Had a great experience with Shona from start to finish. Clear contact, transparent and most importantly contactable! We talked about what I was looking for and ran through the options and the best plan going forward. I had the initial interview and accepted the role within a week. I still keep in contact with Shona and have sent a few people her way as I would highly recommend Harrison Sands and the talents of Shona.
Luke Elliott
Shona from Harrison Sands helped me to secure my first recruitment job out of university. She offered really valuable tips and support to help me excel through the application process. She remained extremely professional, friendly and approachable throughout. I'd have no hesitation recommending Harrison Sands to anyone looking to get into recruitment!
Jake Mawhinney
Lovely people to work with, helped me out with every concern I've had and landed me an amazing job! Recommend 100%!
Anabel Iakovleva
I can not thank Katie at Harrison Sands enough for her advice, professionalism, honesty and support - while I was at a crossroads in my career. Katie listened and understood throughout our various conversations. She always offered personable yet constructive thought-provoking advice. Katie shared personal career highs and lows herself with me - which made me feel like Katie knew that after a long career with my previous employer, that my next job had to be precisely one that I could excel within - and enjoy. I would highly recommend Katie's service at Harrison Sands to anyone seeking their next role within the recruitment industry. Katie is from within the industry, so she truly understands every scenario. She doesn't just want to find you a placement - Katie wants to find you a career. Katie, I am very grateful for the role you found me. You listened, you were honest, and I thank you for finding me a job that I absolutely love.
Darren Logue
Brilliant recruitment business Shona is an exemplary recruiter. She helped me land my perfect job. I would strongly recommend Harrison Sands to all candidates and clients looking for a recruitment business who offer first class service.
Bridget Carter
Shona at Harrison Sands is extremely helpful and provided me with the advice and support to land an excellent graduate role. Thank you so much!
Ellie Sheehan
I worked with Harrison Sands back in 2019 and dealt with Katie Coates who I found to be extremely professional and very knowledgeable across all recruitment sectors. Katie helped facilitate my last move which has worked out to be a truly great move. I have to say that throughout the process I felt Katie was honest and genuinely had my interests at heart, which I cant say for some other R2R's I have worked with. I can highly recommend using Katie and the team at Harrison Sands if you are looking for a move within the recruitment industry.
