The Power Of Talent

Associate Recruitment Consultant - Edinburgh

Rhona Hutchon set up Harvey Nash Scotland in 2008; just a couple of consultants in a little office in the West End. In the last 7 years, she has turned a couple of consultants into a team of 20 and has led Harvey Nash to huge successes. They have outgrown 3 offices and just recently moved into their newly-designed suite in Waverley Gate at the East end of Princes Street.
