The genesis of Harrison Frazer was brought about by an exceptional set of Consultants from their previous Executive Search firm heritage, based in Leeds in the UK. These Consultants spent their careers pioneering new, innovative and most importantly – extremely effective recruitment solutions for their clients. The results spoke for themselves, and from there – their CEO agreed to make the logical investment to create Harrison Frazer – the first Executive Search firm of its kind – to set a precedent and mark an industry standard for value-adding recruitment solutions. It is these systems and processes which Harrison Frazer uses to serve its clients.
We pride ourselves on building winning relationships with both clients and candidates through in-depth sector expertise. Each of our industry practices has its own research team, which works in parallel with each Consultant to provide frequent updates on shifting industry-trends. Similarly, our Consultants provide feedback to our research teams with any additional information uncovered during the screening/interview process – we leave no stone unturned, the result of which is an incredibly rich base of knowledge-capital which we utilise in an advisory capacity for future clients. Our ethos is focused on our value adding capabilities undergoing continued growth – we only ever take steps forward.
When it comes to finding the ‘right’ people, the cultural ‘fit’ is crucial. At Harrison Frazer, we adopt a very personable culture, and hence are well tuned to detect, understand, and deliver the culture requirements of our clients. Each organisation has its own cultural alignment, and we understand that before anything else, each candidate must be culturally aligned. In addition to our sensing of those who are culturally suitable, our integration methodology ensures that new Executives/Leaders are integrated quickly and successfully without sacrificing initial momentum within their new role.

“It is no secret that effective organisations are led by an effective leadership team. The complex challenge of finding senior level executives is one which requires an extremely methodical approach at every step of the journey.”
Whilst the cultural fit is extremely important, we follow our tried and true method to ensure that all measures of fit are aligned between the candidates, and the position. These are: culture; metrics (performance); team-building ability; team-leading ability; capcity for quick integration; ambition.
Our methodology has been developed as an amalgamation of previously successful methodologies pioneered and created by our founding Directors during their previous career prior to Executive Sponsorship to found Harrison Frazer.
"Amber and Harrison Frazer helped us recruit our new President & CEO for Curetis USA Inc. Outstanding project management, great execution, unwavering customer commitment and superb communications from A to Z. Within a short period of time, she had identified a top-notch candidate talent pool and helped us manoeuvre through a time which was really challenging, given the public company status for Curetis."
CEO at Curetis, N.V.
"I have worked with a few recruiters throughout my career and Joseph has topped the list. He was always on point, transparent and never overbearing. From our first conversation, I felt like he knew exactly how my skill set could benefit my (potential) company and in turn, (and most importantly) how they could benefit me. He made sure that I was comfortable and informed throughout the entire interview process."
