We are Harrison Scott Associates, the UK's largest recruitment consultancy in the Print, Packaging and Paper Recruitment industries.
Our size and specialist knowledge gives us the advantage of offering candidates access to their market's most sought after career opportunities and clients access to the top candidates.
We pride ourselves on having the best career opportunities available and the best contacts within our respective industries. What should be of great comfort to you is that at all times you can be assured of our utmost discretion and confidentiality.
Our teams of highly trained consultants are passionately committed to specialist areas of the market, and as a company we never lose sight of the fact that it is a person's career and livelihood we are dealing with and as such we will never compromise on the quality of advice we give on the many opportunities we handle nationally.
We have been building our database for 31 years so very often we will already have the perfect candidate on our system.
Harrison Scott Associates is a 7-day operation so there have been many times when we have been contacted about a new role on a Friday and have put forward well matched candidates by the Monday.
There are of course times when we have to put more resources in place to find the perfect fit, which is when our great networking within the print, packaging and paper industries comes into hand.
Harrison Scott Associates is the largest recruitment agency in the UK within the print packaging and paper industries, with an array of expertise at our disposal.
We have in-depth market knowledge and fantastic network relations meaning we are aware of many vacancies that are not advertised, providing more opportunities for you.
We will manage your application and liaise with the client on your behalf.
We can also give CV feedback, interview advice and negotiate salaries at offer stage.
If a client is looking to appoint an Operations Director or Managing Director, they will often consider candidates from out with print, packaging or paper.
Industry experience becomes less important, and the person’s skill set and personality comes to the forefront.
If, however a client is looking for the likes of an operator or account manager, 99% of the time they will want to find a candidate with relevant industry experience.
Although our offices are based in the UK, with such sophisticated technology and contacts worldwide, we are able to help clients find candidates across the globe.
We have successfully placed candidates in France, Spain, Germany, Netherlands, and further afield.
It is the client that is responsible for paying our fees, however we never hide the fact that a candidate’s future is our first priority.
This could be for any number of reasons. Sometimes clients are specific about industry experience. For example, they might have told us that they only want to see candidates with a certain amount of print, packaging or paper industry experience.
It could also be based on the information we hold on you, whereby we don’t think that you would be interested in the role.
For example, if you told us that you were looking for a minimum salary and the vacancy is paying less. If in doubt, then please call and we can confirm.
Please be assured that if we can put you forward for a vacancy, we will!
We will never do so without seeking your permission.
Your details will only ever be presented to a client after we have spoken to you about the vacancy.
Of course! You can apply and be put forward for as many roles as we consider you suitable for.
If you receive an offer from more than one client, then the decision will be yours as to which you accept.
If you ever get the chance to read an advert for a recruitment consultant vacancy, you will see the vast majority want salespeople: someone who can sell a candidate to the client; someone who can sell a job to the candidate.
We are totally against this type of recruitment practice. Harrison Scott Associates is much more like an accounting or solicitors’ firm.
We have never had sales targets, and never will. Our consultants are ex managers who have been with us for 18 to 26 years. We seldom have meetings, but when we do it’s never about fees, it’s only about service.
Service to our clients and candidates is at the core of everything we do.
