We established Allen Lane in 2004 having both experienced success in managerial careers at Michael Page. We wanted to use the experience we had gained recruiting senior finance/human resources professionals to offer a fresh and down to earth approach to recruitment. We base this on honest relationships, sound judgement and exceptional customer service.
Having seen some of the frustrations candidates and clients face, we saw an opportunity to move away from the methods adopted by large corporate recruitment brands. We wanted to provide a more personal service founded on transparency, flexibility and long term objectives. Today, every member of the Allen Lane team shares this approach - we all view recruitment as a career and not a job.
Our success at Allen Lane is largely down to the recruitment and retention of some of the most established consultants in the recruitment market and we are proud to say that Allen Lane is a Fast Track 100 brand; having been acknowledged as one of the UK's top 100 fastest growing businesses and as a Recruiter Fast 50 brand in 2012. We currently employ over 25 people at our King Street office and have a current turnover of £39 million.
Since 2004 Allen Lane has developed a far reaching influence and presence within the marketplace, but despite this significant growth in reputation and turnover, we continue to pride ourselves in offering a service more akin to a smaller 'owner run' business.
