Matthew Emsley

Senior Recruitment Consultant

I joined Harvey Lawrence in 2015 having already gained three years’ experience in recruitment and training. I am responsible for the permanent recruitment of both commercial and site management staff for the Manchester and Midlands areas for building contractors. My role involves resourcing the best candidates and finding the best opportunities for quantity surveyors, site and project managers, design and planning managers.

Having worked in recruitment since graduating in 2011, what I enjoy the most is matching the right opportunity to the candidate whilst helping clients to add value to their business. Providing an exceptional service is at the heart of everything we do at Harvey Lawrence.

I am diligent and honest about the roles we have available and the demand in the wider market, which means I create confidence at all levels of the recruitment process. My very detailed approach comes from a real passion for the industry and ensures that I deliver an informed recruitment service based on quality.       

The senior management team provide me with great support in helping to make informed choices for candidates and clients alike. I love the involvement and variety I get through working on projects and new campaigns that we do within the wider business. Overall, I am confident that Harvey Lawrence’s values align well with my own and that we deliver a service that is unparalleled in the market.
