Marc Harrison – Recruitment Manager

A passionate recruiter with a wealth of experience in various recruiting roles, who understands the benefit of providing a 360 degree service to both employer and prospective employees alike.
My clients need the best candidates and my candidates need the best jobs.
My aim has always been to create long term partnerships and to add real value to the recruitment process with a mindfullness and human touch that can often appear to be in short supply.
