Each of our consultants has experience and knowledge in the area in which they recruit.  When you spend time with them you can concentrate on discussing your company or specific job requirement rather than waste time on explaining industry jargon or terminology.  Our sales team understand the difference between B2B and B2C, our finance team are familiar with Payroll and RTI, and so on!

We have a loyal and dedicated pool of talent readily available within our specialisms, enabling us to respond quickly to each and every vacancy that comes through. We offer something rare within modern day recruitment -  63% our candidates can’t be found on external job boards or registered with our competitors.  Why? They are happy with what we do and register exclusively with us!

As a local recruiter, every client truly counts and we only take temporary jobs and permanent positions we can confidently place.  Our consultants aren’t targeted on sales calls and picking up jobs, they are simply empowered to fill each and every vacancy we take with the right person.  Our solid local market and industry knowledge enables us to offer a  solution to our clients, enabling us to do what we do best…..find you the right person!

My first phone call to Lawrence Dean Recruitment was at 4pm on a Wednesday afternoon, asking if they could help us find a temporary accounts assistant to start at 9am the following morning. Caroline told me she loves a challenge and within half an hour she had found us someone. Following on from this positive experience, when we had a need to recruit for several more roles recently, I had no hesitation in calling Lawrence Dean back to ask for their help. Kelly and Caroline took the time to come to our offices to meet with us and really understand what we were looking for. Having seen the offices and met some of the staff, they were able to ask some really targeted questions to help them understand our requirements and not long after that we received lots of really good CV's. Unlike some of the other agencies we deal with, Kelly was very upfront about why she was sending us some candidates, and explained that she had purposefully picked a couple of wildcards, so it would help he r to better focus her selections if they were really wrong; but it also helped to challenge our thinking about the kind of people we thought we wanted! Consequently we met with a lot of the candidates that Lawrence Dean put forward and have now recruited one of them to start next week, which we are very happy about. I would have no hesitation to go back to Lawrence Dean every time we need to recruit, temporary or permanent. Their approach to recruitment is refreshingly open and honest and you can tell they really do care about finding the right person for the right job. The whole team are a joy to work with.

Helen (Office Manager)

Sarah is a key supplier and supplies both Temporary and Permanent staff in various areas of the business. Sarah always works hard to find the right candidates and is always ready to help with any challenges that we face. I would recommend Sarah and Lawrence Dean Recruitment, they offer a refreshing approach to recruitment.

Geraldine (Outsourced Recruitment Partner)

Recently I have used Kelly's recruitment services and found her to be extremely professional and helpful. Kelly had a full understanding of my requirements and supplied me with some great candidates. I would highly recommend their services.

Ros (Office Manager)

50% of my workforce have come from Lawrence Dean, I now only use them to recruit. When they say they work in partnership with their clients they truly do! They listen to the brief, select accurately, but also challenge and offer you advise. 3 of my current top performers I would not have interviewed unless Emma had told me to, now I just listen to her! As they truly know their candidates I trust their judgement. Emma's way of working is all about quality, not quantity. They aren't the cheapest agency I have used but to me they are value for money!

Martin (Sales Director)

Clare is different to other recruiters. She understands the areas she recruits in along with the candidates in these areas. She took the time to get to know our company, what we look for (and what we need but don't say!) and just gets the selection process right everything. I'm not inundated by pointless sales calls or huge volumes of irrelevant CV's, just the right amount of the right ones. She makes recruiting simple and I couldn't cope without her.

Jill (Marketing Director)

Sarah was recommended to me by an existing mutual business client. We connected instantly. I found her to be approachable, professional and passionate about her clients, business and recruitment. She skilfully matches her clients' recruitment needs by being knowledgeable about the job market and good with people. She is an invaluable expert within my network...I heartily recommend her services.

Sonia (Performance Coach)

I have worked with Emma as a candidate looking for work and now recruit through her. She has found me most of my team, and I love the fact that she doesn't just recruit for the job I give her, she recruits talent for the future too. She is reliable, always delivers on her promises and has a great sense of humour, making the whole process more enjoyable!

Claire (Account Management Team Leader)

Sarah approached us once opening her new business and we fell in love with her personality. Sarah is a delight to work with and takes the time and effort to get to know her clients and also the potential candidates for us. She is always trying to think of new and innovative channels to advertise and to get the right candidates for us. Because of this dedication we have decided to put Lawrence Dean on our PSL after a long process of selection. I hope to be able to work with Sarah for a long time in the future.

Becki (Recruitment Partner)

Emma stands out as an excellent recruiter as she really took the time to understand the broad brief that I gave her and identified what was really key to us in a new recruit. She was very professional and made me feel as if I was the only client she was working with (which I'm sure I was not!). The candidates that we met were fully briefed and came well prepared for interviews. Emma is a genuine and hardworking recruiter who I would definitely work with again.

Sara (Team Manager)

Sarah listened to the brief and provided candidates of a consistently high standard for us to consider. Her approach is honest and pragmatic in an industry not know for such attributes. I would recommend highly her.

Michael (Finance Manager)

Caroline is excellent and has never let me down. Our business relies on a large volume of temps, where speed and quality are essential. Caroline understands our business, our culture and what we look for in people that work for us. Although we recruit for a number of temps, no-one she supplies ever feels like that, they hit the ground running, are fully briefed and as such end up staying with us longer term. All the temps we have had love working for Lawrence Dean, they are treated well, paid on time and are happy by the service they receive from them. This is important to us and means they stay with us longer term as well. I know a number of them will only be represented by Lawrence Dean. I have worked with Caroline for over a year and now she is my only supplier of temps.

Peter (Sales Director)

Sarah is an outstanding recruiter, professional in every sense of the word. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anybody recruiting in the Office Administration sector. I have always found Sarah to be friendly, positive and fully understands the needs of our business and puts forward high calibre candidates.

Sarah (PA)

I am a challenging client! I have high expectations and work to tight timescales when I need to recruit. Lawrence Dean Recruitment have never let me down!

Sandra (Team Leader)

I have been working with Sarah at Lawrence Dean Recruitment since 2011. She has exceeded all of my expectations. Sarah seems to always get it right! Sarah's experience along with her personal touch have saved me hours of work and has been very cost effective. Her attention to detail and her proactive response to our needs has proved invaluable to me. I find Sarah professional and approachable and would be happy to recommend her to other businesses seeking a supportive recruitment partner.

Jacqueline (Group HR Manager)

Kelly has always presented as a highly professional yet personable individual. Her business provided an excellent service to high standards.


Professional, knowledgeable, consistent, honest and reliable - Lawrence Dean Recruitment are what every recruiter in my opinion should aspire to be!

Simon (Call Centre Manager)

The level of service I received from Sarah Bennett has been excellent at all times, in terms of her demonstrating professionalism and knowledge of the recruitment market. Sarah quickly gained an understanding of our requirements and took the time to understand how we work, whereby in turn, providing us with high calibre candidates. This has led to us having a long standing relationship with Sarah whereupon she is always the first company I contact when I have a recruitment need.
