How we work

Highly effective technology impacts an organisation’s success now more than ever. Regardless of sector, size, international reach or history, every establishment relies on “innovation” not only to operate on a daily basis but to lead their segment, develop new routes to market and appeal to existing and new customers. 

The Harvey Nash CIO Practice sources and secures Technology and Digital Leaders who will help businesses operate more effectively through innovation and therefore reach their goals.

Whether an organisation seeks a Chief Information Officer, Chief Technology Officer, Chief Digital Officer or Chief Innovation Officer (and their Director equivalents and senior reporting line), as experts in this space, we secure individuals who aim to maximise business potential through technology exploitation.

C-Suite Harvey Nash

As functional, rather than sector, specialists our assignments span the commercial, public and third sectors and range from entrepreneurial start-ups to FTSE 100 global businesses. 

We take the time to really understand the broader context, background, journey to date, hurdles and opportunities to ensure we fully understand what your future technology leader needs to achieve.

No two assignments are the same. As true strategic technology experts, we understand the nuances of each brief. We can also differentiate between a myriad of candidates and understand the skills and personalities that will help you reach your goals. 

Our robust, proven methodologies ensure that we have the best chance of success, with flexibility to meet stringent timeframes when required. We provide complete transparency and ongoing communication throughout the life-cycle of the assignment, including the provision of valuable market research.

Our network is unparalleled, but we also go a step beyond by seeking out new candidates using our experienced research team. 

As true advisors, we help organisations to not only meet immediate needs through the delivery of strategic assignments, but also to plan for the future.
