Harris Woods is a technology & operations focused executive search firm specialised in helping organisations identify and secure the best industry talent to occupy the second tier of leadership.

We were established in response to a key issue faced by most major organisations; how to locate and secure the market’s best talent for the 2nd tier of technology and operations leadership – individuals best qualified to take responsibility for key functions and change programs, and act as deputies and future successors to the top layer of organisational management.

There are several well established executive search companies that focus on the top tier (board level / key positions such as Group CIO / COO), and many very effective recruitment agencies that supply staff at lower levels, but most organisations find catering for the 2nd tier a challenge. These are positions that fall outside the sphere of interest of the larger executive search firms, but are still recognised as business critical enough that the organisation cannot afford to make the wrong hire.

Harris Woods provides tailored, targeted executive search services to cater for the elusive 2nd tier. We use exactly the same methodologies and techniques as employed by the ‘big 6’ executive search firms, so have access to an extensive network of individuals outside the reach of recruitment agencies.
