Richard Harris

Richard began his career recruiting professionals into the Town Planning and Building Control sectors and has been speaking to countless contacts in the market for over 8 years.

His long standing presence in the sector has enabled him to build not only an extensive knowledge of the planning system, but also to cultivate relationships amongst a large network of professionals.

Outside of the office, Richard is a keen sportsman and enjoys skiing, cycling and the odd round of golf. He was also a member of the Great Britain Ultimate Frisbee team and has travelled worldwide competing internationally for the past 9 years.

Ella Lamport

After reading History at the University of Nottingham, Ella felt that she wanted to pursue a career where she could focus more on working with people, and started her career in Town Planning recruitment. She very quickly became one of the most well-known consultants in her sector and the go-to consultant in the field when it came to delivery and a thorough service.

In her spare time, Ella loves to travel with her friends to weekend break locations to sample the culture and cuisines, and was lucky enough to visit 8 European destinations last year alone. (Barcelona, Reykjavik, Rome and Copenhagen to name a few!). This may slow down in the coming years however, as when on home turf she can be found researching which canine companion to bring into her life (any breed suggestions you may have are very welcome!)
