We have worked in start-up and scale-up businesses ourselves, so we have first-hand experience of your pain points, and more importantly, the solutions.  We know how to help you find people who thrive in this environment


Our searches go beyond LinkedIn and the networks we have established.  Our candidate system integrates with tools providing us with access to real-time data and market intelligence, which allows us to quickly zero-in on the best talent


We provide diverse shortlists as standard; in 2020, most of our placements were women or BAME candidates.  We believe in the power of diversity and inclusion and that it makes businesses more successful, but most importantly, it’s just right.

Our approach to executive search

We tailor our approach to the brief and your needs, but typically we do the following:


  • We listen carefully to your needs, helping you to plan and define the role, then come up with a search plan, timetable, and interview plans inline with your goals

  • We use our marketing expertise so that any candidate briefing documents tell your story, share your ambitions and bring your culture to life, as well as describe the role, and we can even achieve this when the position is confidential

  • We prepare any non-disclosure agreements that may be required

  • We forensically search for talent and rigorously screen candidates, presenting you with only the best; throughout this, we provide visibility of the companies and talent we are targeting and feedback valuable market intelligence

  • We design executive interview processes, including any psychometric testing, and coach the hiring team on interviewing and assessment

  • We manage all negotiations, including those where equity or options comprise part of the package

  • We can support you with enhanced background checks and can advise on executive onboarding best practice

  • Throughout the process, we regularly and transparently communicate with you giving you visibility of our work and pipeline as it progresses


In addition to permanent and interim executive search services, we also provide technical experts for due diligence. Lucent can provide management assessment reports and future workforce planning consultancy.
