OUR CANDIDATE SERVICES

We are here to advise and support people and organisations to realise their potential so that together we can impact lives and communities for the better.

This is our purpose. We start each candidate relationship with the desire to understand what makes that person tick and what their long-term aspirations are. We want to play our part in helping them realise their potential, not just in finding their next job.

Executive Search

Helping someone secure a new role can have a transformational impact on their career and life, for good or ill.

It is a real privilege to advise people in this area and one we take incredibly seriously. We want to make a positive difference.

Sometimes we need to stick our professional necks on the line for a particular candidate, sometimes the experience we have built up over the years tells us that, whilst there may be better candidates on paper, our client really should meet you. This takes guts and this only works when our client sees that we are truly passionate about you and when we are resolute in our recommendation.

Mutual feedback is core to our approach with candidates. We will be honest and transparent and hope that you will feed back candidly as to where we can be better too – it is the only way we will grow.

Candidate Impact – Colin Kennedy, CEO, ICS Learn

Working with clients Par Equity and Ironbridge Capital Partners, we recruited Colin Kennedy to the position of CEO at distance learning organisation ICS Learn.  This role not only allowed Colin to diversify his experience whilst remaining in Scotland, but also to use his experience with start-ups and accelerating businesses to significantly transform the way ICS Learn operates, putting him at the head of a Scottish SME success story.

Together we achieve more.

Livingston James Group comprises three bespoke sub brands: Livingston James, Rutherford Cross – our specialist finance recruitment practice, and Hamilton Forth – our specialist technology and transformation practice. This wider group structure complements our robust search and assessment process, allowing clients to access the Group’s deep-rooted network and expertise.

Volunteering with LoveOliver, the Childhood Cancer Charity

At Livingston James Group, we strive to make an impact not only for our clients, candidates, and colleagues, but also for the communities of which we are a part of. We define ‘communities’ as the social and environmental causes that are important to us.

Livingston James retained by Bute Energy to appoint Finance Director

The Finance Director will be a member of the senior management team and executive committee, leading on all aspects of financial management and with responsibility for the back-office functions of the business such as IT, and in-house legal resource. This is an enormously exciting opportunity to join a high-growth business and play a key role in its continued success.

Prioritising Connection with LJG Champions

In the summer of 2020, when the world was getting to grips with Covid lockdowns and working from home, one of our key points of focus was on fostering connections.  Not only with our clients, which we managed through virtual events and creating engaging content; but with each other as colleagues and teammates, and with our wider communities.
