Jim Denning


Jim is ultimately responsible for the Group's commitment and success in achieving its long-term Strategy & Vision. A large part of his role is ensuring that the business is in good health financially in terms of hitting and exceeding year on year P&L targets, but also that the group is in good health from a cultural standpoint, so that whilst we strive for year on year rapid growth, we do so while still holding on to our core principles of the “Younger You” and the “Good Human” ethos that run through the core of LHi.

Jim has 15 years' experience in the recruitment market. He spent the first eight years of his career recruiting within the UK & EU Tech contract markets at Huntress Group, It’s here Jim embarked on his initial leadership journey successfully scaling the contracts business and becoming Director of UK & European Contracts. On joining LHi Jim had the opportunity to gain experience working across the Oil & Gas and the Life Sciences markets prior to moving to LA to set up LHi’s West Coast office. With the LA office successfully on its feet after 18 months and succession firmly in place, Jim then moved back to London to take on the Group MD role overseeing the group's global sales growth prior to taking on his current role as Group CEO.
