Christopher Bane, Business Development Manager, Baker McKenzie

“Leighton Taylor have placed me in my last two legal roles. The ladies I worked with were quick to react to the market. They were hassle-free and there was no need to take time out of work to register with them at their offices, which is what I hated about other agencies. They also had a clear understanding of what I was looking for and only contacted me when they deemed fit, unlike other recruitment agencies who would contact me for every role they got through. Leighton Taylor sold me the real job description rather than the usual ‘salesman’ approach some recruiters take. The small touches they put into the recruitment process really show they care about their candidates.”

The team not only did that but presented me with an opportunity to take the right step in my career.

Always just on the end of a phone, the team sent me preparation materials for the interview and fully prepped me on what to expect. When the pace quickened, the team worked outside of ordinary office hours to secure my new position, their communications timely and effective.

Molly Vickers, Marketing and Business Development Administrator, Charles Russell Speechlys LLP

They were a pleasure to work with, provided valuable advice through my periods of looking for work, understood which roles might be right for me and were at all times positive and responsive.

Alexandra Quilici, BD, Marketing & Communications Manager, Wiggin 

“I have worked with both Colette and Victoria from Leighton Taylor Consulting and have been pleasantly surprised with their efficiency and professionalism. Having worked with a few recruitment companies, they are by far my favourite. They are extremely organised, always following up on calls and interviews and their communication skills are second to none which can surprisingly be quite hard to find. They always provide the relevant information in a timely matter and never put pressure on you – simply get you an interview that suits your schedule as well as the client, brief you the best that they can and wish you luck. You can tell straight away that they are experts at what they do and you are certainly not working with people that have just joined the industry. They work hard to find the role that you want and have a wide range of reputable clients and strong relationships with them which makes you feel reassured. The company they placed me at they have been working with for 20 years so it gives you piece of mind that they know exactly what the client is looking for and can give you a really detailed brief of what to expect. The interviews that they got for me were exactly the roles that I was looking for and all at top companies. If I look again, they will certainly be the first people that I contact. I cannot recommend them enough.”
Emma Newman, Senior BD Executive, Simmons & Simmons

Victoria Leporiere, PR & Communications Manager, Macfarlanes

“I first worked with Colette many years ago when she helped me make the transition from financial journalism to professional services marketing. I recall her being one of the few recruiters at the time who thought it perfectly reasonable for me to want to move into in-house marketing communications. She was tremendously supportive, offering me lots of practical tips from how to adapt my CV for professional services to how to approach interterviews and showcase my transferable skills. I got the first job she put me forward for and have never looked back. I signed up with Leighton Taylor more recently and was delighted to work with Colette again. She, Victoria and Giles make a seamless team. They are all up to speed with all their candidates, so you never have to repeat yourself. They genuinely listen to what you say, always follow up and never strong arm you into anything. In fact, I trust them so much I actively seek their advice. Above all, they make you feel as important as the companies they’re recruiting for, which speaks volumes for the type of agency they are. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
Layisha Laypang, PR & Communications Manager, Efficio
