We Deliver & Succeed Together

Our Core Values

We strive for the highest ethical standards through all our dealings with both client and candidate. We believe that our reputation is our single most valuable asset and that without trust, a business relationship cannot exist.

Clients and candidates benefit from our insight and in-depth understanding of the marketplace. Ultimately our long-term success has been determined by our ability to deliver success for the client and the candidate over 30 plus years. We believe that these are compelling reasons to trust us with both your assignment and your reputation.

Kingsbury Sutton provides a much-personalised service; the Director handling the assignment does so from initial meeting to post assignment review and as such is responsible for providing detailed progress reports, or at conclusion of the assignment.

We work with the client to develop the brief, first getting real insight into the organisation, its culture, aspirations and objectives before approaching candidates, with the profile and competencies needed to fulfil the role.

How We Work

The next stage is to agree on a suitable recruitment service, the timescale (remembering that Kingsburysutton can work with condensed timescales), reporting requirements, and fee structure.

Once the method has been formulated and agreed, the process is instigated. Then the resultant candidate response is collated, and the assignment Director will then evaluate each candidate’s CV and hold rigorous interviews against the agreed specification.

A full fact and information pack (including validated references and qualifications, behavioural profile if requested, consultants’ notes and recommendation) is prepared on each short-listed candidate and is sent to the client in advance of the interview process.

Post assignment meetings are held with both clients to ensure we have met client expectations and welfare calls are made to candidates, ensuring they are satisfied with their new role.


Paul Lawrence

Paul is Managing Director of Kingsbury Sutton Limited with many years experience delivering Retained Executive Search assignments across Large PLC and Privately owned Companies, SME and VC backed companies. In recent years, Paul has added to his portfolio of experience in Nanotechnologies, Engineering and Services sectors. Successfully providing main-board and mid-management roles across several industry sectors, including FM, hard & soft, Outsourcing, ICT, BPO, Renewable Energies and Nanotech.


“Paul has successfully undertaken recruitment mandates for EH Smith over the last 2 years and I am extremely pleased with his advice, service and counsel when delivering assignments to us. Recently, we retained Paul for a very senior role search, with challenging personal characteristics and a very detailed job specification that we felt was required for the right applicant to be successful in our business.

The Executive Main Board was involved with the final selection process, and our Executive Chairman commented on the fact that the shortlist presented was of an extremely high calibre, giving us considerable food for thought as to who we would request back for second stage interviews. Once the decision was made as to who was the best match for the role, Paul’s advice on offer management and with him being actively involved to facilitate the final offer and start date, helped considerably. I look forward to working with Paul and his team again.”

EH Smith

Human Resources Director

I have used Paul’s search services for a number of years and he has proved his skill and understanding of the type of candidates needed for our company. But I was very pleased with the successful outcome from the task we gave to him to identify and source a shortlist of candidates for us to interview for a US based VP of Sales position.

 Paul and his research team had to undertake a very focussed, targeted identification and approach, which produced a strong shortlist of candidates leading to us making a successful appointment.

 I have no hesitation in recommending Paul’s team and their approach to executive search”.
