At the core of the LHi Group is the Younger You philosophy, which represents the recruitment company's commitment to ensuring that it paves the way for the next generation to experience better opportunities. To symbolise this mentality, every new manager is given a pair of Converse trainers with the date they started their careers stamped on, inspiring them to remember to make the path to success a clear one for their new team members. This led to over 50% of the business being promoted last year.

Younger You underpins its learning and development, diversity, inclusion and belonging programmes.

LHi Group, which includes the brands Lawrence Harvey, SciPro, Piper Maddox, Harper Harrison and XPS, provides specialist talent within transformative and future-changing industries: technology, renewable energy, life sciences and the built environment.

With eight global locations including London, Manchester and Bristol, the medium-size enterprise offers specialist recruitment services across the UK, Europe and United States. Tom Glanfield, who set up the business in 2002, later released 50% equity to LHi employees and appointed Jim Denning as CEO to take it forward.

The group is committed to operating in the most progressive markets where it can make a difference and maintaining the inclusive culture for which it is known. It was ranked 25th in the 2020 Sunday Times International Fast Track 200, with international growth of 105% per annum.

Quote from the top...

“The good human philosophy is at the core of everything we do at LHi. This past year in particular has taught us that no matter what the world throws at you if you focus on creating an environment where you support, push and encourage each other then you can only flourish. To be recognised as an 'world class' business with this 3 star accreditation is a huge achievement and one that I know the whole LHi family will be incredibly proud of, and will be something that we will always strive to build upon"

Jim Denning, CEO - LHi Group
