Engineering a Response to Covid-19

Engineering a Response to Covid-19

​The engineering sector is no stranger to change. Technological advancements can reshape processes used for decades, almost overnight. Sometimes that change comes from within, but occasionally it is thrust upon the us by external forces. This is where engineering currently finds itself. This article’s aim is to explore the ways in which engineering is adapting to the problems of Covid-19, potentially for the better.

Harmonic really understood the importance of identifying people with a real scale-up mentality who could deal with challenging stakeholders, significant change and limited resources as we successfully pushed towards a unicorn valuation which we achieved this year. Whilst working with Harmonic I was impressed by their industry knowledge in the EV and battery technology industry and some of the complexities associated with the nature of the emerging market when identifying relevant candidates.

The team at Harmonic were brilliant, I needed a CFO for a scaling start up, and quickly. They listened carefully to my requirements and ideas and worked flexibly around my diary, before quickly finding a number of very high quality CV's to review. They were patient, listened to the company’s needs and turned the role around very quickly. The service was great, and I would highly recommend.

Having worked in the recruitment sector myself in my last role, it was great to work with someone that was treating the candidate properly. Too many recruiters (including most of the larger players) treat the candidate poorly, with minimal communication or interest unless you are at a final interview stage, so it was refreshing to be treated like a human being. I would happily work with Harmonic again and recommend you to any client or candidate. Spencer Wreford, CFO at Penspen Find out more about our values
