About Us

Everything we do is focused around people, simply finding the right job for the right person or the right employee
for the right company…. nothing else.  

Our History

Founded in 2010, Lawrence Dean Recruitment Group was established to take away the transactional element of recruitment and focus on quality relationships, presenting our clients and candidates with a fast, effective and consistent service tailored to suit their needs.

We recruit from junior to senior level within Business Support, Customer Service, Sales, Marketing, Finance and Human Resources across a multitude of different sectors, having experienced consultants concentrating on each discipline and each level.  

Everything we do is focused around people, simply finding the right job for the right person or the right employee for the right company…. nothing else.  

We started our business in a small office with two people, two computers, two phones and two bundles of energy and passion to be different to our competitors and stand out.  Today our ethos is no different, but we also have a strong team of knowledgeable and experienced consultants with unrivalled passion and energy to deliver this service each and every day and to recruit the right way… the Lawrence Dean way.

Don’t just take our word for it, in our recent customer experience survey we found that 77% of clients have worked with us for more than 1 year with 42% overall having worked with us for 3yrs +.

46% of our candidates have used us more than twice to help them find work and 54% register exclusively with us to find them work due to the excellent service they receive. 

Business support

Whether temporary or permanent, our Business Support team have experience in helping those starting out in their career through to experienced Office and Operations Managers.

Customer Services

Ranging from Call Centre Advisors to Managers, as well as standalone Customer Service professionals, recruiting the right calibre of customer focused individuals is key to the success of any business.

Finance

Having a solid accounts and finance function is at the heart of all good businesses, whichever industry or sector that you are in! Our team are skilled in identifying the very best of the bunch!

Human Resources

From Administrator to Advisor level, CIPD or qualified by experience, we help individuals progress to the next stage in their careers whether it be in a shared service or more generalist environment.

Marketing

Digital or offline we know that one skill set doesn’t necessarily suit all! Our quality selection process involves meeting, getting to know our candidates and retaining them.

Sales

In sales the demand for skilled people is high and understanding what makes your business the right next choice for potential candidates is key. Our personal approach sets us apart from our competitors.

Giving Something Back

TEAM is a concept developed by our team to publicise all the “extra” things we do!  

Our team, the companies we work with and the candidates we find the best new jobs for are all based in Hertfordshire so we are keen to ensure we connect with the community in terms of fundraising for local charities and supporting young people to gain employment. Our team of expert recruiters work hard to support on a number of different projects.  

Youth employment and skills shortages are a hot topic and we have been partnering with local schools and colleges to meet with students to see how we can help. We spend time discussing career options with them, offering insight into the local job market as well as providing valuable tools to help them get work ready if they decide not to continue with further education.  This has been a hugely successful venture, with us already finding permanent jobs for over 20 people.  

We are always keen to partner with other local schools and colleges so please contact our office on 01438 310131 and ask for Natalie Freeman who heads up TEAM for Lawrence Dean for further information.

As a business we are passionate about our local community and therefore take pride in being a corporate sponsor for Stevenage Community Trust. On a smaller scale we also support The Garden House Hospice in Letchworth.  We regularly carry out events and initiatives to fundraise for these charities.
