Tell us a little more about Harvey Lawrence and the team

Our focus has always been to source and place white collar construction professionals in both temporary and permanent roles. We introduced our blue collar specialist trades and labour desks in 2009 as a natural extension to our business. Our geographic field of operation has always been, and remains, the North of England and the Midlands. Harvey Lawrence has been driven by a team of committed professionals and our culture is based on high ethical standards and strong business instincts.

How was Harvey Lawrence formed and when was it established?

Harvey Lawrence was formed by myself in 2001 after serving eleven years with Hays where I spent the last few years as Regional Manager for the Northern Region. I feel I took some really good experience as both a hands on recruiter and manager of a sizeable recruitment business and applied my own standards to Harvey Lawrence. As we enter our fifteenth year in business, I look back with no regrets for the big leap I took a decade and a half ago.
