Harvest Director, Maree Herath (GAICD) brings over 25 years’ recruitment experience, has ran a successful enterprise for over 13 years and sits on variety of Boards and Committees. She is a subject matter expert in executive search.

Recognised by her peers as the 2022 Business Leader of the Year, in the Geelong Business Excellence Awards, you can be confident in selecting and appointing Harvest for your organisation’s high ranking appointments.

CEO Recruitment

Maree Herath and Harvest lead the Geelong Chamber of Commerce in searching for a new CEO. When I reflect back on my time as Board Chair at Barwon Health I realise that there is a huge difference between National recruiters and local recruiters . National Recruiters work for themselves. Maree works for her community.

A cut above

I was put forward for a position after only a phone interview. I was short listed by the firm that I interviewed with and was phoned the night of my interview by Maree to let me know I had been short listed. The unusual part of that? It was probably about 6:30pm. I am still waiting on hearing from HR people who have promised to call from several years ago. If Harvest treat everyone like this, they are a cut above the rest.

Very customer focused

My experience with Harvest Talent Recruitment has been extremely positive. They undertake a recruitment assignment at all levels with confidence, they understand the candidate landscape. They are very customer focused to the needs of the client in their ability to identify and put forward good quality candidates for consideration while also balancing the needs and expectations of the candidates.
