Providing expert talent recruitment to the Geelong and South West Victoria region since 2009

To us, talent recruitment is about unearthing the very best person. We take into account your needs, your brand, culture and what makes you unique. We aren’t in the business of finding you the first person – we’re in the business of finding you the best person.

We are Grater Geelong and South West Victoria’s regional experts in providing bespoke and tailored talent solutions.

We partner with SME’s, start-ups and large organisations to provide specialist talent recruitment and executive search for both permanent or contract appointments.

Our track record across corporate services, finance, legal, governance, marketing, people and culture and technology sees Harvest as the go to specialist recruitment firm with deep talent pools that have been developed over time.

We do what we do best so that you have more time to do what you do best.

And really, what’s not to like about that?

The Authentic Recruiter

Here’s a recruiter who has not replaced the art of recruitment with the automated keyword search. Jackie Matthews from Harvest Talent Recruitment & People Solutions took the time to understand the evolution of my career, identified my strengths, understood my character and placed me in a position where I can be of real value to my employer. Beyond this, for the first time in many years I’ve come to appreciate how a recruiter can actually help to shape and strengthen an organisation with the right talent. I feel very fortunate to have crossed Jackie’s path. You keep on shining girl 😉
