What our clients say

We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional service to our clients. Here’s what they say about us.

Harmonic submitted good profiles which ended in a result that we are very happy with. They consistently followed up and helped move the process along quickly. Thanks once again! Kevin Philips. Senior FM WeWork
I have worked with Harmonic on a number of crucial hires over the past few months and they have exceeded expectations. Even without solid job descriptions, Harmonic completely nailed what we were looking for. Sophie Williams HR Manager, Labs/Viastak
Harmonic was able to grasp exactly what we needed and had a pool of impressive candidates. We couldn’t have asked for more! Kevin Lin Finance Director, JTP LLP
I have found working with Harmonic to be a very smooth process. I was happy with the help and support recieved and I would definitely use Harmonic again. Eleni Germanou Practice Manager, Architype
Dealing with Harmonic is always a pleasure both as candidate and client. We have found working with the larger ‘big name’ agencies to be an impersonal and unsatisfying process and Harmonic is the perfect antidote to that. Dave Buck Chief Financial Officer, Tom Dixon
I have worked with Harmonic for two and half years to support our recruitment during a period of very significant growth. They have delivered consistently excellent results. We feel that we get a "trusted advisor" for the business who can support us with input on organisational structure, benefits packages and salary benchmarking. Lee Jackson Managing Director, The Furniture Practice
