The Launch of Harris Personnel
We recently caught up with Jeanette just a few weeks after she started her own recruitment business with SSG – here’s what she had to say:
Tell me about your recruitment background.
I have 7 years experience in the recruitment sector working my way up the career ladder from Administrator to billing Business Manager. My background is Nursing specialising in the private sector, managing various size times whilst doing a 360 role.
What was your motivation for starting your own recruitment business?
I wanted to build a reputable family business that is noticed for making changes and creating opportunities in specialist markets, and have a company that people want to work for and are happy to come to work.

Did the launch process meet or exceed your expectations?
Yes was very informative and moved very fast which I am extremely pleased with. SSG were working to help launch Harris Personnel late evenings and weekends which has helped us launch quicker than anticipated
Which part of the process if any do you feel we could have done differently or better?
Were you made to feel welcome at our offices?
I was made to feel very welcome, everyone was very excited about the business and the team are all specialists in their areas which made me feel more at ease knowing I was in good hands with SSG team
Which element of the launch most worried you initially?
The branding as I wanted to not limit myself to one market, but Christian brought some fantastic designs and the first design was the design we chose. It symbolises what we stand for – a true working partnership.
Which element of the launch did you enjoy most?
Branding, although this was what made me apprehensive it also helped aid me to visualise our company and seeing in front of our eyes our business ideas coming together.
Which element of the launch did you enjoy least?
Nothing, I have enjoyed every moment of the launch, every part is vital for Harris Personnel to be a success and with SSG's support this will happen.
How did you feel about the level of communication between yourself and the members of the SSG Team?
Fantastic, SSG were always able to respond to emails very quickly and efficiently and via telephone too
What were your thoughts on the launch day itself?
Ecstatic, the first day to a very prospering business.
Did you feel well informed about the launch process and what was expected of you?
Yes, Krissy was always updating me and advising me of what stages the launch was at.
