As a candidate, you will find your experience with Leonid to be quite different from other recruiters – but in a good way!

We work on a retained search basis. This means that your prospective employers have exclusively entrusted Leonid to deliver a shortlist of the very best people for their open roles.

Candidate care is extremely important to us. We keep you informed at every stage of the recruitment process and we pride ourselves in building ongoing relationships.

When we deliver a shortlist of candidates to our clients, we do so via short video interviews, called ‘LeonidLive’.

As part of your recruitment experience, one of our friendly consultants will conduct a Q&A session with questions set by the hiring company, which will be recorded and sent to the client. This is not designed to be a competency-based interview, it is simply a way for the hiring company to get to know a bit more about you in a way that isn’t possible from a CV alone.

In our experience, these video shortlists really help speed up the recruitment process and removes any need for the client to hold screening calls. It is also a chance for you to shine by giving the hiring manager an insight into what you could bring to their organisation.

We know how frustrating it can be when a recruitment process is drawn-out. As a candidate, you want to move through the stages as quickly and smoothly as possible.

To make this happen, we use something called the ‘Magic Month’ methodology. We pledge to complete a hiring process within 30 days of receiving the client brief. We provide clear deliverables at each stage. This removes any ambiguity as everyone involved – recruiter, candidate and client – knows exactly what to expect, and by when.


Leonid was founded out of a desire to provide a better recruitment experience for both the job seeker and the hiring company. Our team is made up of experienced consultants who share in this mission and who care deeply about treating everyone fairly and honestly. As such, you will find that, unlike some other recruiters, we:

  • Understand the sector you work in very well
  • Will never ‘ghost’ you
  • Will always keep you informed
  • Deliver on our promises

So, if you work in R&D Incentives or Corporate Governance are looking to move jobs either now or in the future, we’d love to hear from you!
