Jane Harper formed ‘Harper Recruitment’ in 1987. After working with both a national organisation and a small privately owned firm and she believed there was a gap in the market for a professionally focused consultancy offering a balanced combination of professional corporate service levels and the intimate market knowledge/understanding and “human element” offered by a local supplier. Holding firm to these beliefs Harpers went on to be the consultancy of choice for a large degree of the East Midlands businesses from PLC’s (sole commercial supplier to Boots group for many years) to trusted recruitment partners for OMB/SME’s across the region. The candidate relationships developed throughout this time has seen placement support for some of the regions industry leaders and key figures along with multiple generations coming to Harpers for guidance and advice with their career development.
Harpers prides itself on offering a personalised, professional, tailored service and solution, no matter what guise you engage with the business. The last 25 years plus has stood testament to our founding beliefs and still, today, form the core of Harpers business mantra.
