Whether a client or candidate you can be sure that your relationship with Allen Lane will be individual, rewarding and importantly long lasting. I've known James in particular going on for 8 years, as a client he's helped me to recruit high calibre finance teams and as a candidate he's placed me in a number of challenging and CV enhancing roles. My individual circumstances and requirements are always understood and my expectations met through high quality service.
Senior Interim Manager
Ministry of Justice
I first started working with Allen Lane in the spring of 2008 when we were recruiting a Director level finance person. They weren't one of our senior finance suppliers at that stage but, due to their sheer accuracy and professionalism, they now are. Lester Fernando is excellent and I would heartily recommend him and Allen Lane.
HR Manager, Recruitment & Retention
Metropolitan Housing Partnership
I found David to be very supportive, friendly and easy to talk to. He gave me the confidence and support to ensure that I was successful in being appointed by the DfE. I have already recommended Allen Lane to a number of friends and colleagues.
We thought that we received value for money through a professional, timely and knowledgeable service and we believe that we found a great FD through your channeling
We appointed Allen Lane to source an interim Deputy Director of Finance and the permanent appointment. Both selected candidates have proved to be strong appointments. Maurice and Beth were both very responsive, gave good advice and partnered with us to deliver these appointments.
Director of Finance & Operations
The service provided by Allen Lane has been professional and to a very high standard ensuring our needs were fully met. The excellent personable skills provided by Liam were carried through to the candidates they provided.

Allen Lane took great care and time over this piece of recruitment and their expertise meant that they could identify candidates that would really fit into the Innisfree family. Allen Lane went above and beyond our expectations throughout the process. I would unreservedly recommend Allen Lane and look forward to working with them in the future.
Innisfree Housing Association
Allen Lane helped us appoint a Head of Finance. Maurice put together a very impressive short list which led to the appointment of a really great candidate. The service provided throughout the appointment process was excellent.
Director of Finance
Marie Curie Cancer Care
Allen Lane were able - very quickly and effectively - to really appreciate our business needs in our finance transformation project. Working as a collaborative partner they were then able to present a diverse selection of high calibre, top quality candidates to meet those needs.
Allen Lane identified a number of interesting opportunities that I might have passed over because they drilled into the job specification and matched it to relevant experience rather than taking it at face value. They were also very supportive throughout the interview process with preparation and feedback at each stage.
