We help clients across a variety of sectors achieve rapid and sustainable transformation, enhancing positioning and performance within their market. We specialise in Interim, Search and end-to-end Managed Solutions. Our clients range from blue-chip public corporates to smaller, privately owned companies undergoing growth, turnaround or significant transformation.
Over the years Harrison James has developed a trusted network of interims who have delivered some of the highest profile transformation programmes within their chosen fields or have held pivotal leadership positions in times of change. These operators are amongst the very best in the market and have been selected by us because of their ability to deliver outstanding results on budget and on time.
Often clients request us to carry out a retained search to provide a key stakeholder once the transformation has taken place or in some instances may request a stand-alone search. We use only in-house, highly experienced researchers with a Big 5 background who will explore every possible source to deliver a shortlist of game-changing candidates with unrivalled speed and accuracy.
Cost is key and often clients choose a tailored solution which involves Harrison James providing a programme team which flexes over the period of the transformation time line, ensuring that resource is effectively utilised and wasteful spend is eliminated. The teams that we build have the ability to compete against and beat the top consultancies to deliver cost effective, market leading transformation projects. Mission creep and upsell are not part of the agenda, the focus is on project completion and measurable results.
We uphold these values as must haves at all times and take a long-term view. The most successful and enduring relationships are not built overnight and we never allow our business decisions to be driven by short-term thinking. The true measure of success is the positive impact we can make on your business and that is what drives us.
