You don't need previous work experience, just a lot of enthusiasm and a positive can-do attitude!

All of our work is done on a computer, so you need to be confident sitting behind a screen for most of the day. If you have Microsoft Excel experience this would be great, but it is not essential. All our roles require an element of communication whether that be written or verbal so you must be confident speaking to people of all levels - over the phone, on email or via video call. We have a very flat structure; all of our managers are very approachable, so you don't need to worry about asking any questions, you will have access to all the support you need.

Harvey Nash has been around for 30 years as a global recruitment company within the Technology Industry. We are excited about our growth opportunities and would love for you to be a part of it!
