I have worked with Leighton Taylor as a candidate and a recruiter and have always found them to be responsive, consultative, and really good at listening to my needs. I had a long list of quite specific requirements when I began looking for my current role and they really listened and came up with suggestions that showed they understood that I was looking for. They made the process really smooth and easy and I couldn't be happier in my new role!
Tamsin Dickinson, Director of Client Marketing & Communications, Frontier Economics
Leighton Taylor do more than just recruit, they put the right people in the right roles. Leighton Taylor show a depth of understanding of our business and culture that is quite unique. And I love that there is no hard sell with them, just trust, sincerity and professionalism.
Lisa Spencer-Arnott, HR Manager, Conyers Dill & Pearman
I have looked for two roles in the UK (15 years apart) and Giles has helped me to find them both. Giles has extensive experience of the industry and is most helpful in identifying suitable opportunities as well as providing support and guidance through the interview process. I would highly recommend Leighton Taylor looking for roles within the sector.
Megan Khan, Interim Head of Marketing and BD, Hogan Lovells
I have worked with Colette and Victoria for over 10 years now. They really understand our firm and what we are looking for in a candidate so never waste our time with people that won't fit in. Their response times are excellent and they are both realistic and honest at managing my expectations. They have placed the majority of our team now and I can't recommend them highly enough.

Operating on a NO placement, NO fee basis, a call to Leighton Taylor can mean access to a number of CVs that you have not already seen. This may either be the starting point of your campaign or you may have been trying to recruit for some time and require fresh impetus.

This service is absolutely free and means that you will not spend your advertising budget on these sites. You will then only receive CVs of those candidates that are appropriate for your roles, meaning lots of time and money saved.
If it is felt necessary to advertise a specific vacancy in a sector publication an advertisement will be designed, drafted and agreed to a client's approval. Leighton Taylor has over 12 years' experience in writing copy specifically for professional services vacancies and has a strong track record in attracting outstanding individuals through this process.
Once a recruitment advertisement has been published you will be kept fully updated on the response and after a detailed interviewing process, a shortlist of applicants will be produced to an agreed timescale. Leighton Taylor will manage the process through to a successful appointment.
Search and Selection
This is particularly effective for Head of/Director level positions or roles where a distinct skill set is required. Having established a brief with a client we can identify a number of leading individuals both within and outside of the sector through a detailed research program. Potential candidates will then be contacted and assessed for their suitability. Once completed, Leighton Taylor will send a shortlist of CVs to the client and then manage the interview process through to offers and placements.
