Flexibility - can you live without it?
Just-in-time management and interim recruitment solutions: the launch of the FlexExec Register marked the formalisation of HARP wallen’s interim/flexible recruitment product offering.
The fashion for hiring temps and flexible staff has reached the executive suite of the travel industry.
Whilst an interim may be more expensive, travel companies are increasingly recognising the need to hire the skills they want, when they want them, for the length of time they need.
Today’s employers must have the ability to organise their human resources in line with the varying needs of customers or with peaks and troughs in their business cycle.
On top of this, recent research has shown that half of working adults would like more flexibility in their work so that their job fits in with other parts of their life more easily.

FlexExec Register Testimonial
"Having a pool of highly qualified and experienced travel industry professionals to call on for interim or project work is crucial for today's successful travel business. I've worked with the team at HARP wallen on a number of these types of assignment and have found it to be a fast and efficient means of recruiting the right person within days, rather than weeks or months. I'd recommend this means of recruiting to anyone looking for a speedy short-term or part-time recruitment requirement."
Bill Jones - CEO easycar
"I turned to the FlexExec Register when I required an experienced Manager to run a busy department on an interim basis. Our needs were very specific and demanding, we wanted an individual who could quickly grasp the intricacies of our company, manage and comprehend very complicated budgets, manage and nurture both internal and external relationships and to add further complication they were required to job share! The first person we interviewed was the perfect candidate and has not only undertaken the role required but has added value to our business. This is a service that I would highly recommend and we will certainly turn to again."
Kathryn Beadle – Sales and Marketing Director, Hurtigruten Ltd
“Having recently recruited an interim Key Account Manager role through the FlexExec Register, I can highly recommend the service offered. I was wondering if for an interim role the quality of candidates would be as high as normal but any concerns I had were soon alleviated as HARP wallen put forward a high number of quality candidates. I would highly recommend using the FlexExec Register for your interim recruitment needs.”

“The FlexExec Register is an excellent way to contribute to your career development through having to apply your background to new sectors and businesses. Consulting roles require you to quickly adapt and apply your own skills and working styles to a new business model. For some this can be daunting, however it builds an individual through recognising your own key skills and working styles and successfully applying them to a new environment.”
