My consultant's good understanding of CRM market trends and technical skills requirement especially in Salesforce ecosystem combined with his high energy and professionalism enables him to get right person for the role. He is a refreshing change from the paper pusher recruitment consultants as he brings a lot of value to the recruitment process through his deep understanding of the role and client. I have interacted with him in both capacity as a candidate as well as to hire Consultants. In both occasions he impressed me with his preparedness, transparent communication and openness to receive suggestions. It has been a pleasure interacting with him.

Over the past 18 months Lawrence Harvey have placed 15 permanent members of staff and 5 contractors with CloudShift ensuring that project deadlines were never put at risk due to a lack of talent within the organisation. This addition of occasional short term contractors also helped CloudShift with certain projects which required specific skills at critical times in the project implementation cycle.

I have worked with my consultant for the past few years in my capacity as a Director of a Major international organisation, and as a private limited company providing Agresso programme management. I myself have a very strong background in all the Agresso modules up to and including Milestone 6 so I know the market and what I need. I am currently delivering two major programme for a local authority that are seen by the government as critical. I have needed the support of my consultant and the team at Lawrence Harvey in obtaining high calibre candidates from the Agresso/unit 4 background. The Agresso market is a niche market so getting the right resources can be challenging. However I feel confident that my consultant will source the correct candidates for me. He has a strong working knowledge of Agresso candidates which are available there skill sets, and he ensures that the candidates are a good match for my requirements, All of which this take time and tenacity which he is prepared to undertake.

I worked with Lawrence Harvey on an international MS Dynamics project. Quite frankly, I must say I was highly impressed with the outstanding service my consultant has provided! He demonstrated highly professional, positive attitude before and after contracting. The level of communication he maintained all along the project duration was beyond excellent. He handled all inquiries and issues we encountered in a way that always kept me focused on the project, and made me feel I was in the safest hands. He always went above and beyond the norm to make sure the project is running smoothly, and is adding value to all stakeholders.
