Our People

Simon Geere, Associate Director - Human Resources, Procurement & Compliance Divisions
"As a corporate HR person used to large, national and international organisations,  I was quite nervous of joining an SME in the often-misunderstood world of recruitment consultancy. I needn’t have been worried. Joining a division in its infancy, I’ve progressed over nearly 13 years to running 4 key business areas, and now have a far greater understanding of commerciality within the business world. Alexander Lloyd gave me the training and support to build a successful, respected and specialist brand in the field of Human Resources Recruitment."

Danielle Pascoe, Business Manager, Compliance and Legal Division

"I joined as a trainee in 2009 straight from University and received excellent training, as well as fantastic support from everyone in the business. The Directors sit in the same open office and are always available to answer questions, give advice or just for a chat! They listen to your ideas and really value their employee’s opinions. There is a clear progression path and there is lots of opportunity from becoming a team leader or manager, to moving teams or even setting up a new division. There is a real culture of team work within Alexander Lloyd and we are encouraged to share placements with our colleagues which promotes a great working relationship within the teams. There is a competitive commission scheme and targets are realistic and fair. We have social events arranged at least once a quarter and there is always a fantastic Summer and Christmas party to look forward to."

Tom Martin, Managing Consultant - Pensions & Benefits Recruitment

"I joined Alexander Lloyd 5 years ago with no recruitment experience, and they have given me a wealth of training to be a success in my role here! In 5 years, I have progressed from a new Consultant through to managing a team, and the genuine short and long term career progression is what I think sets us apart from our competitors; everyone knows where they can go within the firm if they work hard and implement the training they are given!"

Ciara Batchelor, Recruitment – Finance & Accountancy Operations

“I joined Alexander Lloyd upon a recommendation from a friend when I was fresh out of University, after graduating with a Music degree. I was slightly sceptical as I had no sales or recruitment background and was worried I wouldn’t make the cut. Having been selected for a 1st, 2nd and 3rd stage interview I was offered the job and I joined in February 2016. I was given all the training and support a new recruiter could ever need and I always know that if I need help with something I can ask anyone in the business for advice. Slowly but surely my previous scepticism was wiped from my mind as I found that as long as you are enthusiastic, hardworking and persistent, then recruitment can make a good career path. I enjoy working for Alexander Lloyd because it is rewarding both financially and personally. Recruitment is a good way to make money and helping other people to get a new position is very satisfying. I am quite a creative person and my position allows me to channel some of this creativity which is always a bonus for me. As long as you are someone who keeps an open mind, can take direction, enjoys a bit of competition and you are willing to throw yourself into the deep end, working for Alexander Lloyd could be a good path for you.”
