What our clients say

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

We engaged Harmonic as our specialist agency and they did not fail to deliver. Cultural fit is a big factor in our recruitment process and Harmonic completely understood what we were all about. Mary Louca People Manager, Bigham's
We had an excellent experience working with Harmonic. They clearly know what is needed to drive high-performing finance teams within our sector. Landen Prescott-Brann CFO, Itsu
Working with Harmonic has been great for our business. They were able to bring candidates who had the right skills and experience - but also with the right cultural fit, which is so important for a small company. Alicia Bamford CFO, 31Dover
The retained search process was very enjoyable; they saved my time, had a supportive attitude and their candidate notes and preparation were detailed and accurate. In terms of outcomes: our CFO has taken us through to a successful acquisition by Nestle. Tim Lee CEO, Mindful Chef
Harmonic are diligent in really taking time to learn about our business and the brief, and the hires we’ve made have been a perfect fit – both in terms of skills and culture. I have been really impressed with the hires we’ve made and the service from Harmonic. Henry Sether Co-Founder & MD, Misfits
Working with Harmonic we’ve found a true specialist, consultative, honest and trustworthy partnership. Not only have we had valuable insight into the market and introductions to top talent that we would not be able to source directly, we’ve also saved a lot of time by working with people who just "get it" and can support us throughout the process. They've been a true extension to our team internally, we can’t thank them enough. Carrie Johnson Head of Talent, HelloFresh
