David Harney

Principal Consultant


​I joined Venn Group in March 2017 as a Consultant on the Local Government division in the London Office having moved Dublin, Ireland where I had worked in Retail Management.

Despite the big change in culture from Ireland to the UK and a complete career change, it has been a successful move to Venn Group joining a great business unit and specifically the Local Government Change, Transformation & ICT team for London & the South East. There is a great training programme here with everyone in the business happy to help each other, with my Senior Managers, AD and Director playing a pivotal role in my progression.

It has been great to be a key player in transforming our services for our clients as a more rounded offer across Interim and Permanent Recruitment and specialist Consultancy services, especially with Consultancy delivery which has been a successful growth area for us, delivering successful outcomes with our clients. This has been widely recognised and evidenced in several case studies and repeated business.

In addition to the team success, I am also proud of my personal achievements to date which have included being the top billing consultant in the company for 2019.

It is great to be involved in the ever changing public sector with the variety of new policies and innovation that keeps us on our toes and we have been committed to giving back to the Public Sector with our Social Value Programme which is growing year on year.

We believe in adding value to our clients and candidates alike, forging key long standing relationships by being a critical friend and a trusted advisor.

Outside of work you will either find me in the pub or watching rugby (Ireland/Munster) or football (Ireland…if they ever make a tournament)

When at home: playing guitar or learning and cooking new dishes with my partner.
