Director - Permanent Division

Who am I?

I’m Jamie, Director of the Permanent Division at Lawrence Harvey.


What do I do?

Joining Lawrence Harvey from a competing recruitment agency in 2013, where I had spent over 6 years honing my recruitment skills within the SAP and Data/Analytics market, I was tasked with expanding the UK Technology practice.

Now leading this team, I am internally responsible for creating & driving the vision, motivating and inspiring the team, succession planning, as well as coaching & mentoring all aspects of the job. Externally I play a key role in peer to peer business development as well as managing some of our largest accounts. 


Why Lawrence Harvey?

When the time came to look for my next career move there was only one company I wanted to interview at – Lawrence Harvey! The business stood out from the competition with its energetic and entrepreneurial exterior. A brand that you could truly tell cared about the service they were providing to their customer base and one that gave the opportunity for development and growth for their employees. I was immensely proud when given the opportunity to join the business and have loved every minute of it. 

I am driven towards providing the best service possible within the UK Technology market and invest huge amounts in researching emerging technologies and diversity in tech to provide credible insight to my customers.

I love developing the team around me and seeing them grow in ability and stature and strive hard to create an empowered and challenging work environment that is built on trust and the desire to help each other.
