Tom Glanfield launches LHi Group Ltd
Just a few days after he was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year for the second year running, Tom Glanfield has made his biggest announcement to date, the launch of his new Group company, LHi Group Ltd.
Glanfield, who picked up the prestigious Entrepreneur award at RI’s ceremony on Thursday said this was “probably the most exciting time of my career”.
The launch of LHi brings together all of Glanfield’s specialist recruitment brands under one roof enabling a promising future for each of the brands on an international scale.
The group consists of four non-competing specialist brands operating in key niche areas. Lawrence Harvey (formerly Technology, Life Sciences and Oil & Gas) now solely specialises in Technology within SAP, Oracle, Data, Security and both on-premise and cloud-based projects.
The Life Sciences division recently underwent its own rebrand to SciPro, specialists in Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices. Piper Maddox, Energy specialists have absorbed the Oil & Gas division in to their already thriving renewables business and Harper Harrison continue to solely operate within the Built Environment.
Glanfield explains LHi is the ‘Operational Centre of Excellence’ which supports and services his four brands. The Operations team at LHi are elite specialists, chosen specifically by Glanfield to aid his plans for growing the businesses internationally. Each brand, and any subsequent new brands which open under LHi, have full operational support from Marketing, HR, L&D, Legal & Compliance, IT and Finance.
Already across three locations, London, Munich and New York, the plans for a fourth office opening in San Francisco are just on the horizon with more to be announced in 2017.
Head of People, Anne-Marie Butts said “we are actively hiring across all our brands in all of our locations. The opportunity is huge with LHi and we hope to attract both Graduates who want an innovative and forward thinking business to learn in and senior recruiters who are who can recognise the growth plans and want to be part of the LHi leadership team. I am particularly excited about this launch as it’s also the release of a brand new benefits and incentive package. It’s been really well received internally and I know that it really sets us apart from our competition.”
Glanfield adds “launching LHi feels like the end of a long journey of bringing all the brands together under one roof but actually, it’s the very beginning of an incredible journey that I can’t wait to take. I believe the LHi Group will be the leading recruitment group in the market, globally. The industry is becoming saturated with generalists, by streamlining our brands in this way we are now true specialists in our areas and what our clients and candidates really need.”
