Ironically, it can be hard finding the right career move in recruitment. Too many agencies promise the earth (to clients, candidates and consultants) but fail to deliver. Harper Anderton isn’t like that. We’re a small, friendly agency with a huge reputation in the food sector. We pride ourselves on providing a highly professional service for our clients and candidates. Join us and you can finally get noticed for the quality of your work, not the quantity. Yes, we’re ambitious and enterprising but our culture is collaborative not cutthroat – we’re driven by service as well as sales.

The right size to succeed

Our MD, Tom, started the business in his kitchen in 2009. Today. there are currently around eight of us across three divisions in our Croydon office. Business is growing nicely, but we’re still the ideal size for people to come in and make an individual impression.

You can really find your niche here – there’s room to cultivate opportunities or pursue a personal interest. That’s probably why we attract a lot of naturally enterprising people.


Work with grown-ups

We treat our people like grown-ups; no spoon feeding or micro-management. We don’t set targets for the sake of it or hold pointless meetings. And you don’t have to be in the office at silly o’clock to prove you’re doing a good job.

It helps that we get on well. We constantly share problems and tap into each other’s knowledge. So, even if you don’t have food sector experience, you’ll soon be up to speed.

Rewards and recognition

On top of a good salary, we offer some great rewards including uncapped commission, additional performance incentives, 25 days’ holiday – plus an extra day off on your birthday and an early finish on Fridays.

Everyone has a bespoke personal development plan. If you want to progress – whether that’s moving in a new direction or taking on leadership responsibilities, we can supply the opportunities and the training.

A fun, friendly place to work

If you’re into food and drink, there’s nowhere better to work. We hold lots of social events (usually revolving around food). We organise regular visits to top London restaurants, an annual trip abroad and, for those of you who like to work up an appetite, active events like the tough mudder.
