Values and CSR

Our Values


Do the right thing, not the easy thing


We are committed to driving change and improvement in the industry. Purpose comes before profit. Our methodology is founded in delivering an ethical recruitment practice, with the focus always on quality over quantity. It might be ‘easier’ to conform to a traditional sales model, but that’s not what we are about.





We truly believe in working hard and playing hard and support each other to flourish while doing what we do best. Challenges and triumphs drive us, along with an unwavering desire to do the very best job we can. We celebrate our team’s diversity and embrace everyone bringing their true selves to work. And we always make sure there’s time for fun!





We are problem solvers by nature. We aim to disrupt the industry, challenge the status quo, and create a better kind of talent acquisition service. Our workplace culture encourages everyone to bring ideas to the table, regardless of their role and experience level. We are curious about the world, about learning and about trying out new ideas.





When you love what you do, showing up is easy. Our team are universally determined, transparent and ethical in their approach. We always aim to build long-term relationships with our clients and know that delivering a consistently excellent service is the way to do this.




Everyone is trusted to do their job to the best of their ability. There is no micro-management and no hierarchy at Leonid – everyone is treated with the same level of respect and trust. And we’ve always got each other’s backs, collectively learning from mistakes and encouraging one another to succeed.



Corporate Social Responsibility


Leonid is passionate about a number of causes and is committed to being socially and environmentally responsible.


Charitable Donations

A proportion of our annual profits are donated to cancer awareness and research – a vital charity which is close to the heart of so many.


We donate towards our employees’ fundraising efforts, for example if they are running a marathon or taking on a challenge to raise money for charity.


We also work in partnership with Tree Nation, to help offset our carbon footprint. Once per quarter, we run a ‘Leonid Health Month’ where we pledge to plant a tree for every workout undertaken by our team.



We know that our employees are our most precious asset, and we want them to feel their very best when they work with us.  As such, we understand the importance of an enjoyable and flexible working environment in ensuring a healthy work-life balance. We offer flexible working hours, a choice between office, home and hybrid working and a ‘work from anywhere’ policy. We also offer numerous benefits focused on health and wellbeing. 

Equal Opportunities

Leonid is an Equal Opportunities employer. We aim to ensure that all candidates seeking employment are treated equally and fairly and we have our own diversity policy.

We are committed to ensuring that no candidate will receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of age, race, colour, disability, sexual orientation, gender, marital or parental status, or social/economic class.


Environmental / Waste
At Leonid, we look to minimise our consumption of natural resources and energy. We reduce the creation of waste by running a virtually paperless office. Where we do create waste, we always recycle where possible.


Although our team are dispersed across the UK, France and Spain, we do try to minimise travel and opt for trains over planes, wherever possible. Team gatherings take place once per quarter, as we try to balance our environmental responsibility with the benefits gained from in-person team meetings.
