We always strive to offer an exceptional level of service that's perfectly aligned with the high standards of the schools we work with. So for us, there’s no better recommendation than from those who have worked with us before: here's a selection from our clients and candidates.


Gordonstoun School has used Harris Hill to source teaching staff on a number of occasions. They have always been prompt, energetic, and always put forth a good choice of candidates; I would be pleased to work with them again.

​Harris Hill have a great understanding of the independent school sector and over the years have always provided a selection of ideal candidates. Reliable, discerning and consistent; I can highly recommend Harris Hill.

I have been happy to go back to Harris Hill again and again and they have successfully placed several teachers at Emanuel who have gone on to really thrive here. Their success rate, combined with a high level of personal service, is rare in the industry and that is why I am happy to recommend this agency to other Heads.

I found Harris Hill to be both professional and personable in every way; their service was expert and friendly, and they took the time to get to know me and find out exactly what I was looking for. They have a wonderful knack of making people feel special, welcome, valued and important. I am quite a shy person at heart (believe it or not) yet they brought out the fun side of me because I felt so at ease in their company.

I was aided throughout the entire recruitment process and felt able to call on Harris Hill whenever required. I am currently working in a fantastic independent school which Harris Hill found for me and am extremely happy; I am very grateful for Harris Hill and can't recommend them highly enough.

I have been delighted with the service that Harris Hill have offered - they have filled a number of vacancies successfully at Papplewick in recent years, and they have only ever put forward strong candidates. They seem to have a unique understanding of the needs of prep schools in general and, as importantly, of Papplewick specifically. I would certainly recommend their undoubtedly personal service to any school with either a short-term or long-term vacancy to fill.

We have worked with Harris Hill for several years to recruit a range of staff including general class teachers, subject specialists and middle managers. I feel they have done everything possible to understand the ethos of St John's and the type of staff that we hope to employ. Consequently the staff they put forward are in almost all cases excellent candidates. Their communication is of a very high standard indeed, being both professional and extremely punctual and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any school.

Giles Delaney, Headmaster, St John's Beaumont

We found Harris Hill very useful when we were trying to recruit for two senior positions last year. They helped provide us with a wider field than we would normally have managed and in each case, we appointed one of the candidates they found, who may not otherwise have made it on to our radar.

Mark Turner, Headmaster, King's House School, Richmond

As a candidate for a position in the independent education sector, I have been most impressed by the services provided by Harris Hill. Their approach has been very positive, friendly and professional and I have felt very well supported throughout the application process. They were in constant communication with me at all times and provided excellent guidance through the interview stage.

The team have a first class knowledge of the sector and were able to match my skills and experience with a number of suitable positions, which resulted in an excellent job offer. I would highly recommend them to other candidates and clients!
