Benham was previously sales director for another sales & marketing recruitment business in the Thames Valley area. Harlow Recruitment will focus on supporting business of all sizes, from start-ups to global household names, to recruit top sales & marketing talent.

On the launch of Harlow, Lord Sugar said: “Hernshead Recruitment has been a real success story and it’s great to add another recruitment company to our Hernshead Group. I’m sure Jack and Harlow Recruitment will also be a big success.”

Hernshead is looking to invest in and support the launch of more recruitment businesses following the success of Hernshead Recruitment, which has grown to a 12-person business from its launch in 2019, with a turnover of £2.5m.
