2022 awaits

December 2021

Maurice Goldstone


As 2021 draws to a close, and I start to shake off the disappointment of the quick-fire (inevitable) Ashes defeat (I have put it in the drawer marked “2021 anti-climactic sporting moments” along with my other favourites including British and Irish Lions 2021, Europe in the Ryder Cup 2021, and all things MUFC 2021)…

I wanted to share a very brief post to say that ‘we’re hiring’.

I’m excited that we are as we seek to grow significantly over the next few months to set us up well for the medium term.

Our ambition remains the same…

…to be the UK’s leading Public and Not for Profit Recruitment Consultancy – in executive search, permanent and interim recruitment, and the provision of expertly delivered Managed Service Solutions.

The world in which we live and how we work has changed and it’s imperative we continually adapt to this and indeed pioneer change; influence positively and progressively; and not be passive or stand still. If we do that, we get left behind.

It is my aim to be known as the place to work, and not just the place to achieve brilliant results.

…without compromising on what good looks like (and our success has been staggering for nearly 18 years) and results.

We want to enable everyone, irrespective of background, experience and remit; to achieve their highest potential in the most inclusive, flexible, supportive and motivating environment we can create.

So what are we looking for…?

To support our organic growth agenda, we will not relent on retaining, finding, housing and improving the UK’s elite recruitment and recruitment operations’ professionals.

Consequently, we are looking for experienced consultants (12m-several years…) to work across a number of existing, warm, established opportunities and teams.

We encourage you to bring everything you are about, and everything that made you successful; and allow us to blend that with what we can show you, to ensure you achieve results beyond what you previously thought possible.

Please contact me directly (mauricegoldstone@allenlane.co.uk) for a confidential discussion.

In addition, in February we are excited to be launching our inaugural Allen Lane Academy.

We’d love to hear from you if you are contemplating a career in recruitment. If you’re ambitious, resilient, driven, fun, well-organised and have outstanding engagement and influencing skills, you could start in February with us.

Great benefits, great colleagues, great values, great earning potential, great opportunities to learn and train and so much more.

I personally can’t wait to see the impact we can have on you but equally, you have on us.

And don’t delay – the beginning of next year is huge for us.

From external campaigns to major internal projects, from sector-impacting contributions to high-profile recruitment industry-wide leading initiatives (more on this later…) – this is a great time to join us, and a chance to work with and learn from some of the very best individuals.

The world of working has changed so much over the last almost 2 years and it’s essential that we not only embrace the changes accelerated by the pandemic – such as digital transformation and reliance; commitments to climate change, equality, diversity, inclusivity; flexibility and agility of working cultures; upskilling, support for all and emphasis on open communication and trust and so much more – but that we drive it all and stay ahead of each curve. As a company of 35 people with global connections, we can do that.

All that remains is for me to say thank you 

…to all my brilliant colleagues for your efforts this year, and especially those brave enough to join a business during the pandemic when any acculturalisation process is that much more difficult.

I also wanted to extend, on behalf of us all at Allen Lane, a thank you to those of you with whom we have worked this year whether as a candidate, client, confidante or collaborator; and to wish everyone a happy New Year and a safe, healthy and prosperous 2022.
