Permanent

Due to our values-led approach and teams who are immersed in their markets, all of our consultants have niche candidate communities actively seeking new roles. We seek to fill permanent vacancies in under two weeks subject to your availability. Unlike our competitors, we understand candidates as people rather than CVs and in the vast majority of cases have met our candidates in person several times prior to representing them to you. As a result, we provide customers with insightful summaries of what candidates are looking for in an employer and what they are like as a person.

We understand what our candidates want in the culture of a company and within the role. Because of this, we have outstandingly high post-placement retention rates in the first 24 months of employment (94.5%). If that wasn’t enough, we remain in contact with the candidate long after their employment to make sure everything is running smoothly and to maintain genuine relationships. Harmonic isn’t an agency for short-term transactions, we are here for long-term relationships.

Harmonic really went the extra mile to source candidates for us that weren’t necessarily already looking, instead of just sending us candidates you already had and trying to convince me they fit the mould, which happens quite often!
