Meet the Team – James Harries

Thursday, April 26, 2018


Introducing the newest member of the First Achieve family...

First Achieve are constantly growing and developing. With this in mind, we thought it was about time you got to know the latest addition to our recruitment specialists, Talent Executive, James Harries.

Hi James, first up, whereabouts in the country do you come from?

I come from a village called Silverdale which is sandwiched in between the Lake District and Lancaster. If you’ve never been, you should definitely visit, there is quite a bit to do and the scenery can be beautiful on a nice day.

What previous role did you hold?

My previous job came whilst I was studying when I worked in a fish and chip shop. Thankfully working at First Achieve means that I don’t go home smelling of chip fat any more, but on the other hand there’s no chance of nabbing a spare battered sausage!

Which football team do you support?

I’m a massive Manchester United fan.

What do you drink when you go on holiday?

Well it might be a little unusual, but I like drinking Planter’s Punch. For those of you who have never heard of it, it is a cocktail made out of dark rum, fruit juice and a dash or two of Angostura bitters. It goes down lovely after a long day on the beach.

What’s your favourite food?

I find that it is rare that a situation cannot be improved by consuming a Chinese takeaway.

What website do you visit the most?

As a keen sports fan, I love BBC Sport.

What do you get up to outside of work?

Outside of work I love watching or reading about basically any sport, including playing in goal for the work 5-a-side football. Also, I quite like doing a bit of mountaineering and there are plenty of big hills to get stuck into up my neck of the woods.

Finally, which three celebrities would you invite to a dinner party?

It has the potential to get a bit lively, but I would invite Robert de Niro, Sir Alex Ferguson and Connor McGregor around to mine for a slap-up Chinese meal!

He may be new to the team, but James (if he makes it out of his dinner party alive!) has loads of great roles that could be just right for you! Get in touch today on 07724185218 to find out more!
