Why use Lawson Chase?

We are... Market Specialists
We are one of only a handful of recruitment firms that specialise exclusively in the Risk & Governance markets. We couple that with an additional client focus on Banking, Financial Services and Professional Services firms. Concentrating on just one umbrella of Corporate Governance disciplines uniquely places us to deliver time and time again for the clients we support. Our consultants are experts at recruiting within their vertical markets and we will never move towards a generalist agency model. This niche market remit gives us unparalleled market intelligence and insight into the hiring landscape across the Corporate Governance world. Using Lawson Chase as part of your recruitment strategy guarantees a partnership with a firm that understands your business and has a track record of fulfilling similar appointments.

We are...True Headhunters
The 'war for talent' has never been more prevalent than in the Corporate Governance space. As an agency, Lawson Chase prides itself on following a headhunting methodology with the aim of representing the 'best available talent, not just the best of those actively looking'. We are traditional headhunters and make significant numbers of approaches on the phone to prospective candidates at their desks - discretely, though with the intent of soliciting the most qualified candidates for our clients. Our clients engage with us to gain access to the best qualified and most talented Corporate Governance professionals who are often not visible on the open market or being represented by other recruitment firms.

We aim... To make your life easier!
We know your time is your most valuable resource. At Lawson Chase we understand the value of getting it right and our consultants typically aim to submit just three candidate CVs for any given role, unless a wide selection is desired. Part of our responsibility is to do as much of the ground-work as we can on your behalf. Our consultants do not believe in the 'volume approach' and conduct their searches using a retained search methodology - employing all methods of resourcing at their disposal to narrow a long-list of prospective candidates through to a short-list of those that we truly believe you should interview. A testament to our approach is that we have never had a candidate leave a new job within the rebate period. Much of our success is based upon building long term, trusted relationships with our candidates and clients alike.
