Mark Hurren - IT recruitment


I have been extremely fortunate in my career to engage with some truly inspirational individuals, both in the form of employers and candidates, one of the things those individuals showed me is we can all achieve more with the right people around us. I’m not ashamed to admit I love the complexities of people their motivations, fears, values the very things that make us individual yet in many ways not so different from each other. I have made it my goal to try and understand those complexities to provide clarity where needed and advice and support when asked.

I founded Hurren & Hope as I believed the recruitment sector has lost it’s focus on the very thing that sustains it…people! I wanted to bring together a team of ethical Talent consultants, train them continuously to perfect their knowledge of the market place focusing on psychology, behavioral science and emotional intelligence to ensure they offer clear genuine consultative advice. All within a sales-free environment that enables them to provide the best service to employers and candidates and rewards that service not the resulting fee.

The end result is we are all stronger and more successful together. That’s all of us, the hiring manager, the prospective candidate, the internal Talent department / HR and my team, everyone!

It has to be a symbiotic relationship for us all to prosper.

Ross McFarland

Senior Talent Liaison – AI & Machine Learning

For the last three years, I have been studying at university for a Psychology degree, specifically concentrating on the many aspects of Neuroscience. After completion of my dissertation and final exams, my thoughts turned to future employment and which path to take. I’ve had previous experience with hospitality and social care which presented me with an insight into all kinds of perspectives and ways of dealing with people effectively.

Having been fortunate enough to secure a graduate position with Hurren & Hope it was immediately obvious I would be able to engage with, support and assist people moving forward. The principles and ethics of the company have already inspired me and I hope to become a valued member of this inspirational team.

Following my A levels, my thoughts turned to the career opportunities available to me. As someone who is highly motivated by helping others, and having gained experience within the hospitality sector, I knew I’d be well-suited to a people-focused role.

After securing an apprenticeship with Hurren & Hope, it became clear that this position would enable me to develop those skills further while having a positive influence on the people I’d be working with. I’m inspired by the strong principles displayed throughout the company and love being part of a team that puts people at the centre of everything we do.
