Harriet has over 15 years recruitment experience gained from both agency and in house roles, with a focus on the HR market place for over a decade.

She has worked flexibly since 2010 so understands what ‘smarter’ working means having lived and breathed it.

Having worked across a diverse range of sectors, from Financial Services and Professional Services to FMCG, as well as time spent in house at FTSE 100 easyJet, she’s gained broad sector knowledge.  Most recently, Harriet has focussed on the senior end of the market, working with job share pairs and career break returners.

Harriet is the mother of lively twins and in her spare time loves running in the countryside near her home in Bedfordshire.
