About Harmonic

Placing purpose above profit, Harmonic think and act differently to other Search and Recruitment companies. Our values sit at the very heart of what we do.

Our candidates have an impact way beyond the traditional back-office perceptions of Finance. They are a community of professionals who bring a commercial, high-EQ and data-driven outlook to your organisation…think: ‘business partners’, not ‘bean counters’.

Our values

Our three company values underpin everything that we do.


At Harmonic, we believe that ‘brains beats brash’ every time. Colleagues are encouraged to impress you with their specialist knowledge, not with how much business-jargon* they can drop into a sentence.

Our company structure and job titles reflect this commitment: we’re analysts and community builders first, business development professionals second. With each of our colleagues fully-committed to producing the most detailed and high-quality industry analysis for their sector.

*only the Four Tops should ever “reach out”.


At Harmonic, we act, communicate and think with respect front of mind, and – as with all of our company values- display of respect directly determines promotion prospects and annual compensation. We don’t do meaningless buzzwords.

Respect is fundamental to our Harmonic organizational culture and our guarantee of outstanding customer service. Our colleagues treat one another with consideration and kindness, and every customer is treated as equal. If you choose to work with Harmonic you can guarantee commitment to responsiveness, care and attention.


We measure our success as a business by our social impact, not just our revenue growth. And have consistently committed 5% of our net profits to charities and social causes which are important to us in the UK and USA. This covers ongoing commitment to supporting mental health wellbeing organisations, children’s literacy, race and gender equality and LGBTQ+ organizations.

We are firm believers that small gestures of kindness can make a huge difference and reject ‘culture war’ dialogue and social division.
