      How we work

      We help exceptional companies find exceptional talent

      Our differentiators…

      We operate across four specialist recruitment markets (Alternative Investments, Financial Services, Professional Services & Technology) and develop our headhunters to be subject matter experts in their industries and niche verticals. Our recruiters are heavily entrenched within their professional communities. Our dedicated focus and industry alignment is invaluable when fulfilling challenging search mandates and allows us to build and nurture an unparalleled network of candidate relationships. This ‘knowledge led approach’ ensures you are working with a team that really understands your business and the markets you operate in.

      We’re proud of our track-record of delivery and count some of the world’s most prestigious brands among the firms we advocate for. Our reputation is of critical importance to us and the volume of candidates and new clients who approach us through word-of-mouth speaks volumes. Don’t just take our word for it though… our client testimonials, case studies and candidate testimonials speak for themselves.

      The uncompromising mission of our recruitment teams is to attract and attain the best possible candidate for any given position, not just the best of whom happens to be actively looking. Our team are trained in the traditional art of headhunting in order to ensure the full talent pool is captured when we take a brief into the market. Our approach guarantees access to passive candidates who are difficult to unearth with direct sourcing methods.

      We work as a trusted extension of your own team, carrying your brand values into the market as we represent your organisation to prospective employees. We’re obsessive about building relationships that last and treasure the partnership we build with clients. This non-transactional approach to talent consulting allows us to add value at every turn of the recruitment process, with our collaboration rooted in genuine, personal and honest relationships.

      The backbone of our business is razor-sharp research and this extensive market intelligence underpins all of our work. This insight is critical at all stages of the recruitment process, from initial role scoping through to offer stage. We are armed with the expertise that allows us to act as trusted counsel to both our clients and candidates.

      Few search firms of our boutique size can lay claim to the international footprint that Lawson Chase has developed. We embrace the philosophy that ‘talent knows no borders’ and have successfully recruited in the UK, United States, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Kenya, Nigeria, Brazil, Australia, Austria, Germany, France, Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Luxembourg, Oman and India to name a handful of locations!

      We’re passionate about inclusion and the benefits that a diverse workforce can bring to our clients and strive to deliver diversity in candidate selection on all briefings, aiming for truly balanced shortlists that allow our clients to capture the ‘diversity dividend’. We celebrate the uniqueness of individuals and champion a recruitment approach that is inclusive, unbiased and fair.

      We have a straight-taking and no-nonsense approach to tackling search requirements and don’t shy away from difficult conversations. As true business partners to our clients, we believe honesty is always the best policy. It is invaluable for our clients to understand the realities of the external market perception of their brands, teams and openings and we operate an open-book feedback approach to our relationships. This approach ensures we deliver on our promises and have a transparent relationship with all clients.

      Our Recruitment Solutions

      Our Approach

      Needs evaluation

      We’ll start by working with you on a full hiring needs assessment, working through your current hiring objectives and ensuring the role profile/spec encapsulates everything that is meaningful to the hiring stakeholders.

      Market insights

      Our recruiters will give you a view on the market, factors to consider and feedback from an early stage. We’ll discuss the elements ‘beyond the job spec’ such as your company culture, the reasons why a candidate may want to join your organisation and the goals for the first year of employment. We will perfect the ‘message to the market’ that represents your brand and your requirements.

      Agreeing the strategy

      We’ll agree on a strategy for the hiring project along with defining time-frames, interview formats and our recommended approach to the search. At this stage we’ll decipher whether a retained, executive search, a permanent contingency solution or an interim placement may best fit your needs.

      Executing the search

      We will guide you through each interview stage, helping you to prepare and arming you with the information we believe will give you the best likelihood of success.

      Lawson Chase will deliver a shortlist of vetted candidates that we believe represents the upper quartile of the interested talent pool for your consideration, taking into account the technical requirements, your company culture and the soft skills that have been identified by you as being important to the team.

      We will commence the interview stages as previously agreed. Lawson Chase will provide feedback from the candidates you have met at each stage and will ask for this to be reciprocated from you. We will work in partnership with you at every juncture, managing candidate expectations and ensuring candidates have a positive experience.


      When the preferred candidate has been identified, we will work closely with you to deliver the offer to a successful close. 

      Follow up

      Lawson Chase will keep in close communication with you post-placement. We take a non-transactional approach to search and hope to work with you long term, continually developing our working relationship.
