Andrew Jones 


Andrew is a high quality Electrical Engineer by trade who after an early career out on site and a nearly 10 years in design consulting he wanted to make a career defining move. 

As part of a large company Andrew had honed his craft as a technical engineer, learned to manage others and build a team around him and was ready to make a big step up which the corporate world couldn’t offer.

The aim was to find an exciting challenge that ticked the following boxes:

  • An opportunity to step up to Director level
  • An increase in salary to reflect the role and responsibilities taken on
  • Target a smaller business where you have access and control to the make decisions
  • The challenge of building a client base and winning work 
  • A route to equity



The search for Andrew was not a hurried one, this move needed to be the right opportunity to step up which required patience. The search lasted some 6 months, 5 interviews and plenty of sales calls before the right opportunity was identified. During this time Andrew had secured a promotion with his current business, a significant pay rise and he was also subject to a significant counter offer. Andrew however was never tempted to stay as he has been through the correct decision making progress in the first place and the right opportunity was ahead of him with Harley Haddow to become part of their London leadership team.

The result of this placement has been a huge success to date and is tipped for much more moving forwards. The Harley Haddow business has grown in London under the new leadership team and I’m sure will continue to be a huge success. 


“I was quite particular about my requirements, indeed they changed through a period of about a year as I investigated my career move and Phil listened to these, adapted and ultimately brought to me the exact role I was looking for. Cant really ask for much more.”
