I have worked in the field of construction recruitment for over 30 years and belive I have a strong knowledge base and powerful network within the construction sector. I have recruited some of today's industry leaders, including Regional Directors of major contractors and developers and there are many more that I have represented on their way to the top.

I naturally recruit people that share my values and I am lucky to have a team of people that have shown consistency, integrity.

Senior Recruitment Consultant
I am responsible for the recruitment of temporary management and technical disciplines for contractors and developers. I recruit for roles such as site engineers, site managers, project managers, design managers, bid managers, planners and quantity surveyors throughout the North West and Midlands. Prior to Harvey Lawrence, I spent seven years in loss adjusting, two of these included working in Australia alongside a structural engineer. This role involved organising projects and gave me a good overall understanding of the construction sector and working to tight deadlines. I feel this experience has proven to be invaluable because I am able to work under pressure and produce fast results.What I like about working at Harvey Lawrence is not only the excellent rapport we have with our candidates and clients, but that I can make a valued contribution to a business where my own ideas are welcomed.
Senior Recruitment Consultant
I have nine years' experience in recruitment and training within construction. I'm now in my seventh year with Harvey Lawrence and am responsible for the recruitment of permanent staff for the Manchester and Midlands areas for building contractors and developers. Roles I recruit for include quantity surveyors, site and project managers, design, bid and planning managers.What motivates me is finding the best available opportunities for the candidates that I represent and helping clients add value to their business by attracting the best talent. I adopt a detailed approach to the recruitment process and always look to give informed and honest advice. I have a real passion for the construction industry so it's more than just placing people, I'm genuinely interested in what they do.Our inclusive culture of working colloboratively on recruitment drives allows us to 'bounce ideas', often yielding extraordinary results. I relish the involvement and variety I get through working on projects and new campaigns that we do within the wider business.
Compliance and Payroll Manager
I am responsible for payroll and compliance which involves extensive checking and reporting. Compliance and reporting has been the mainstay of my experience, both in the UK and Australia. Originally from the West Midlands, I returned home from Australia in 2018 and joined Harvey Lawrence. I was attracted to the business as it was clear to me that compliance is considered a priority and I felt the role would be well-suited to my skillsets. My time in Australia has given me a more rounded experience of business, particularly in terms of learning to work with Government state regulations in a different continent.
