I have worked with Beth as both a recruiting manager and a candidate. She demonstrates excellent market knowledge and provides clear advice on role, skill sets and appropriate salary levels. As a recruiting manager she always provides a quality list of candidates that could undertake the role.
Beth is always keen to ensure that the role is right for the candidate and the candidate is the right person for the role and the organisation. It is an approach that goes way beyond just filling a role And shows her understanding of both organisation and candidates.
Recruiting Manager within charity, arts and not-for-profit sector
We used Allen Lane to recruit for a senior finance role as Assistant Director of Finance for Children and Young People Services. Children services is one of the key areas of strain and poses significant challenges to local government finance and service delivery.
We were keen to work with a recruitment agency that was experienced in supporting such a high profile recruitment, offering a full wraparound service, including microsite, web content advice, assessment centre, shortlisting and onboarding support.
The campaign was tendered for and Allen Lane came in with the best all round offer including price. The team at Allen Lane were excellent throughout the process and Jack Murphy provided excellent advice and support throughout, being very responsive to last minute changes and questions.
I would highly recommend Allen Lane.
Assistant Director of Finance and Deputy s151 at London Borough of Lambeth
I would like to say how grateful I am to both Ed and Steph for their assistance and support during my recent recruitment process. The initial information pack about the role was detailed and clear. The preparation session that Steph offered provided me with some incredibly useful information on how the interview would be conducted so that I was better equipped and knew what to expect on the day itself. Since receiving an offer, Ed has been attentive and promptly followed up on any queries I had, ensuring clear communication throughout and has subsequently been able to help in negotiating an offer that was amenable to all parties. I am very grateful for all the support I have been offered throughout the whole recruitment process.

I want to show a deep appreciation for the way you supported me during the interview process with RBKC. Not only your swift response to my email communications during the process and the guidance on the expectations and preparation for the interview, but also, progressive guidance and words of encouragement and advice you gave me to prepare well and remain positive during the interview journey, I want to say thank you Ed. Once again, I want to express my appreciation for your level of professionalism towards the support you offered to me during the RBKC employment process. Based on this fantastic experience, I want to draw a conclusion that Allen Lane is a good recruitment company that any new employee would love to associate with.

I have known Beth and Allen Lane for over ten years since I started out as an interim. She is perfectly suited to the role of a recruitment consultant. First and foremost she is a connector and knows everyone in the sector. She is also hard working and focused which makes her well placed to respond to urgent recruitment needs. She is also hugely experienced. For this reason I have successfully turned to her to recruit senior roles and benefited from her wisdom of the market as I have rebuilt finance teams. I have also been on the other side of the table and she has picked me out for roles that have been well suited to my skills.
Outstanding recruitment agency! A big thank you to Iain Slinn who was very meticulous and made the whole process from initial call till the last interview seamless. I highly recommend Allen Lane for their excellent recruitment services.
