Hartley Resourcing

Who are we?

Andrew Hartley

After graduating from Surrey University, I joined one of the top national recruitment agencies. Those first 10 years covered a variety of roles, the final 5 of which were as Regional Director for the South, running 13 busy recruitment offices. Armed with this experience I took the opportunity to start an independent agency with the aim of setting new standards in Southampton and the surrounding area. I am very proud that since opening in 2007 we have built up many fantastic relationships with local employers and candidates and have fast become Southampton's busiest agency - being awarded the Best Independent Recruitment Agency in Hampshire for the last 2 years in a row have have been a great acknowledgment of the team's hard work over the last 13 years! Most of my time out of work is spent with my 8 and 6 year old who are a source of constant fun. In any spare time I love to get outdoors and set crazy challenges for myself. 2019's challenge is my proudest to date, cycling 800 miles in a week as wingman to Francis Benali in his 7 Ironman Triathlons in 7 days IronFran challenge. Being a part of #Teamfran was a unique experience and led by Fran we achieved the goal of raising £1m for Cancer Research UK.

I graduated in Sports Science, with all the good intentions of a career in sport.  However, I realised I was never going to be a World Champion, so needed to find a proper job!  After working for a travel company and an office equipment reseller, I walked into a recruitment agency, loved what I saw and the rest is history!  I spent 9 fantastic years working for a national agency and made it into the top 10 consultants.  I was then promoted to run my own branch which I took from strength to strength for 3 years (the highlight was personally being nominated as account manager of the year by a major national client!).  In December 2007 I jumped at the chance to join Andrew with his venture and am really proud to be part of such an exciting company.  I now work part-time as I have two little girls, so most of my spare time is spent chasing after them!  I am very sociable and enjoy sport, especially watching rugby.  I also go to the gym to try to counteract my love of food.

My working career started with a local construction company where I undertook numerous roles.  I also completed a City and Guilds qualification in bricklaying and even spent 2 years working in France.  After 6 years with the company I felt as though I needed a new challenge in a new business sector, so I joined one of Europe’s leading insurance companies in their claims department.  After several years and a couple of promotions within the company I left that role to join one of the UK’s largest independent insurance brokers within customer service.  During this time I became Cert CII qualified and developed my passion for customer services and managing customer relationships.  I met Andrew through a family friend and he recommended a career within recruitment, so when the opportunity arose 8 years ago to join the team it was an easy decision to make.  I am really enjoying the challenges of recruitment and the satisfaction of helping people find new jobs and companies the right staff.  In my spare time I love playing football and generally keeping fit.

Having completed my degree in Business Studies, specialising in Human Resource (HR) Management, I have attained twenty years’ experience in various challenging HR roles. During this time I also successfully completed my postgraduate qualifications in HR and joined the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD). My career has led me to work on UK and overseas based consultancy assignments, in both public sector and large multi-national Organisations. This included opportunities for long-term secondments in the Middle East and Greece. Since returning to the UK in 2011, I have completed a number of contract positions in generalist HR roles. During this time, my interest in talent acquisition and recruitment have been further developed. In early 2016, I was delighted at the opportunity to join Hartley Resourcing and move to completing a recruitment focused role on a full-time basis. Outside of work, I enjoy travel, attending antiques auctions and completing furniture restoration projects.
