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.
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.
At Livingston James, an unwavering focus on the impact of our appointments is at the heart of everything we do. We work in partnership with our clients and candidates to bring together leadership teams that transform organisations and careers for the better.
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.
