Ben Hayes


I head up the Harvey Nash Finance and Banking Practice in London, partnering with the city’s Financial Services Industry to bring talented individuals to the organisations that need them the most.

Ben joined Harvey Nash in January 2010 to set up the Harvey Nash Banking and Finance Practice. Prior to joining, Ben had worked in direct sales for 7 years before beginning his career in recruitment in 2004, initially starting out as a consultant and later being promoted through the ranks to Senior Team leader for rival brand SThree. Ben then went on to work for a Financial Services Management Consultancy Huntswood before joining Harvey Nash. Since joining Ben has been instrumental in building the Banking and Finance practice to where it is today, a tier one supplier to more than 60 clients in the financial services industry. The Practice now operates in four internal sub brands, Infrastructure, Risk Audit & Compliance, Software Development and Projects & Change. Each team is split between contract and perm and has consultants focussed in specific verticals, led by four team leaders. The business now generates revenues of more than £2m in GP each year.
