New website launch announcement: Harbron Recruit Ltd launches new site at www.harbronrecruit.co.uk

We are very excited to announce the launch of our newly designed website. The site's homepage features a topical British feel to their logo and is designed to be faster, easier to navigate, and more user-friendly.

As a leader in construction recruitment, it's important we keep up with innovation and technology and the company has invested in improving its I.T and systems to streamline many processes. We also want to ensure we provide clients and candidates with the latest information regarding services and vacancies

One of the most noticeable changes on our new site is our logo. Harbron Recruit has adopted a new logo which incorporates the United Kingdom flag representing our pride in our nation. When re-designing our logo we found out that the colour blue evokes trust, loyalty, security and strength - qualities we hope our clients and candidates would use when describing Harbron Recruit. We hope everyone likes the cleaner look and we look forward to your feedback.
