Mundane is not in the vocabulary of recruitment specialist, Hamlyn Williams, where staff could find themselves working in any of its nine global offices spanning three continents. Founded in 2011, Hamlyn Williams recruits within the Regulated Industries for companies ranging from start-up boutiques to blue-chip multi-nationals across the financial services and banking, technology and healthcare, and life sciences sectors.

One of the fastest-growing recruitment firms, Hamlyn Williams is based in London with offices in New York, Hong Kong, Cardiff, Dallas, San Diego, Shenzhen, Frankfurt, and Amsterdam, with more to be opened in the future, offering international opportunities for employees to develop their careers.

Hamlyn Williams prides itself on offering a fun, friendly and fast-paced working environment where colleagues help and advise each other throughout their recruitment journey. Staff receive in-depth training and regular sales days give employees the chance to engage in some healthy competition with teams from global offices to win prizes. Vacation incentives also offer the opportunity to win exciting trips abroad, most recently to Croatia and Barcelona.

As a sales organisation the main reward is commission, which is uncapped, but Hamlyn Williams also shows its appreciation for hard work and exceptional effort through its global awards ceremony which recognises top performers across the business, not just those who excel at sales. Employees work hard and play hard with plenty of out of hours socialising.
