Barney Machen

Senior Consultant

I recruit contractors and interims in a range of disciplines across Infrastructure and Informatics as well as corporate functions in the Public Sector

Since joining Harvey Nash in 2009 I have placed over 300 candidates into contract and interim roles with over 80 different organisations, introduced a number of new clients to our business and built a good network of contacts along the way. I’m genuinely passionate about Thought Leadership and the significant part it plays in our business. As well as inviting clients and candidates to our events I also organise a handful of small ‘round table’ events each year to provide people with a platform to discuss key issues with their peers from other organisations. This helps me understand the sectors I serve much better as well as raising our brand profile. Prior to joining Harvey Nash I studied English at Cardiff University, won an intervarsity Debating Championship (to my surprise), climbed several mountains including Mt Blanc, spent seven years in the Army Reserves as well as a few months as an IT contractor to fund my gap year. Outside of work I climb, SCUBA dive and generally enjoy the outdoors whenever I can.

Expertise: Recruitment. Thought Leadership. Outsourcing.
