Working for Langley
Why are we different?
At the heart of our work is our team, who have an in-depth technical knowledge of Procurement & Supply Chain and many years of experience in niche recruitment. What’s more, we actively support the team’s ongoing learning and development.
‘Self-growth is tender; it’s holy ground. There’s no greater investment.’
Through our sister company, Blue Bamboo Consulting, we deliver high quality training & coaching to our consultant and support teams – providing a level of support that is rarely found in other recruitment businesses. This allows our people to develop their knowledge, skills and behaviours to ensure that they (and the whole business) get the results they want.
Our culture is an interesting one – so we asked our people to describe it. They say:
“Langley is an interesting mix of very professional and friendly”
“It’s fun to work in Langley – great clients, a great bunch of people and a good management team who provide clear direction to the business”
“Somehow the people at Langley just deliver – it’s ‘family friendly’ yet people are very dedicated to hitting their targets and providing very high service levels”
“We are competitive – yet everyone is supportive. I’ve never worked anywhere where the cross-selling and cross-team working works so well”
“The blue-chip client base is demanding – it’s really enjoyable when you place people with them because it is a challenge”
“I’ve worked here for several years – and I’m still learning new things and improving myself – the high quality training and CPD programme provides a level of support I’ve not found anywhere else. This has enabled me to be far more effective as a recruiter”
It’s fun working here – and not just the frequent team-building & away days!
If you are considering joining Langley then we will arrange for you to talk to a cross-section of our team to find out if we might be a ‘cultural fit’ for you.
Clients are our life-blood and demand the highest level of service and partnership: and we have built the business on delivering to this expectation.
Our list of clients reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of the FTSE and includes companies such as Carillion, Premier Foods, BP, Apple, Telefonica, Credit Suisse, Ernst & Young, Barclays…………and so many more. And we continue to grow our client base with organisations that have global, regional or country/site teams.
What do our Clients and Candidates say about us?
“Langley Search and Selection provides an excellent service. As an interim manager it is essential that I have a responsive agent who reacts quickly to market opportunities and gives rapid feedback on candidate selection processes and interview success. Christina and her team fulfil these requirements - and more” (Interim Manager)
“I have known Langley Search & Selection for over 8 years. Unlike other recruitment consultancies, the team take the time to understand their candidates’ needs. They also don't try to 'persuade' you to consider roles that really you are not suitable for, unlike many of their competition.” (Senior Candidate – Consulting)
“Whilst I was considering my last career move, they offered objective, considered and balanced advice on the options I had. As a specialist procurement recruiter, I would recommend Langley Search & Selection as leaders in the field” (Proc Director – Public SectorClient/ candidate)
“Honesty, integrity and delivery, Langley Search and Selection displays it all.” (Client in Oil & Gas sector)
“I wanted to let you know that you have been one of the most professional agencies I've been working with over the last few weeks and wanted to thank you both for you hard work and help. I will stay in touch as hope we'll be able to work together in the future.” (Interim Candidate 2010.
£££ - Remuneration Policy
Our people are remunerated in line with their billings & leadership responsibilities. Reward closely correlates to their individual contribution to the business. Individually our current team earn from £25k to £120k+ per annum.
Our preference is to promote from within - all of our leadership team joined us in more junior roles. Others have gone on to be ‘super-billers’ as Principal Consultants. All targets are set in consultation - not imposed from above. Feedback from new joiners is that our Induction Programme is well crafted, ensuring our new joiners will come up to speed quickly.
We operate a ‘by invitation’ long-term share scheme to reward those key contributors to our business both now and into the future.
We continue to invest heavily in our infrastructure, including the working environment, recruitment software, IT and marketing. In Nov 2010 we re-branded our corporate image and upgraded our website www.langleysearch.com. We invest in developing our presence on social networking sites including LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook and use them extensively for candidate and client attraction.
Our Back Office Team
We have a professional, dedicated admin and customer service support team who ensure that our interaction with clients and candidates is seamless and professional, allowing our billing teams to focus on just that – billing!
