I founded Lawrence Harvey in 2002 with a graduate loan and the goal of becoming one of the leading recruitment brands across the UK .
It was risky but I was ambitious and I wanted to create a company that was not only focused on delivering outstanding results to customers but was also a creative and inclusive place to work.
Just as I had created the opportunity for myself, I wanted to encourage people to work differently and give them the flexibility to do so, embracing their entrepreneurial spirit. My dream was to create a company that would stand out from the crowd, to have a leading market reputation and to do it with both professionalism and personality.
Now, over a decade later Lawrence Harvey is an established, international, trusted brand with over 80 specialist consultants across the UK, USA and Europe and are continuing our journey with more international offices further widening our geographical presence. Three new brands have opened under the group and with more to come this year it is an incredibly exciting time for myself and these businesses.
I have recently been selected to join the production of Top Recruiter: Europe vs North America – follow me on Twitter @tomglanfield for updates on the show and much more!
