Our Recruitment Service is FREE to jobseekers!!


A good place to start is to Register your details with us. We assure you that your details are not distributed to clients without your prior approval and are held confidentially and securely on our database.

Your details are used to help us to help you find the right job or career. The more you tell us the more we can help you e.g. what level of remuneration you are seeking, what type of job you want and why you might be seeking to leave your current employment?

It will help us if your CV is in Word or RTF format and not PDF.

Job Hunting

Once you have registered we will notify you by email or text of relevant vacancies when they arise.

Alternatively you can see our "up to the minute" new vacancies on our Vacancies pages on this site and also on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

(Please note that you should ensure you have closed your Facebook and other social media pages to all but your friends. You would not want future employers to be able to access your private party exploits and discard your application as a result!! - it happens!!)


When you want to apply for a job from our vacancies pages we will advise you on how to prepare your CV and covering letter to have the maximum impact on your prospective employer.


When you are called for interview we will help you prepare and present yourself for success.

Job Offer

When you are offered a job we will help you to evaluate it and to resign professionally from your current employer.

Our Responsibility

We act as the confidential intermediary between you, the jobseeker and the employer. We represent a source of information and advice to you.

We act as an advocate on your behalf and bring your application alive.

Our clients engage us as an extra resource because they are busy and also to be the first stage in the screening of applicants for the employer - sometimes you may not like our decisions which are based upon their requirements, their instructions and our extensive selection experience. Therefore jobseekers are strongly advised not to ruin their chances of employment by making direct contact with our client employers.

Non EU Citizens

We welcome registrations from residents of countries outside the EU.

However we are not able to consider anyone for vacancies in EU countries who have not already been granted a long term permit to work and reside in one of the EU countries.

We are sorry but we are not able to help with sponsorship or visa applications.

We will try to help you with current and future vacancies in Non EU countries.


"As a candidate I can't rate Amanda and De Lacy highly enough. I have dealt with many recruitment agencies (as client and candidate) over the years, and De Lacy is a totally different experience - you really feel that Amanda is interested in you; you're not just fodder for her clients.
Over the 4 years I have been in touch with De Lacy I have only been contacted by them about 3 jobs - the first led an interview but not an appointment, the second the role was withdrawn due to organisational changes and the third I got the job! In fact, I really wasn't looking for a new job when Amanda emailed and called me, but she managed to sell my current role to me and I am so glad she did!
That's the difference with De Lacy and other agencies - De Lacy maintain long term relationships with potential candidates as well as clients, so we listen when they call, which means that they can access professionals who aren't necessarily looking for a change.
Not only that, but De Lacy target their roles very closely, so as a candidate you know they will only get in touch if they think a job is perfect for you, culturally as well as professionally. That is obviously also a great plus for their clients.
I thoroughly recommend Amanda and De Lacy to recruiters and candidates alike - the service she provides is exceptional and really can't be compared to just about any other "normal" executive recruitment agency."

"Dear Amanda,
I personally would like to thank yourself and John at De Lacy for your fantastic help and assistance in securing my recent position found by De Lacy. Your extra counselling prior to my interview was of great benefit and was truly 'beyond the call of duty..!'
Again convey my thanks to the team at De Lacy,


"Taking that next step whether forced or unforced requires careful consideration, it requires objective thought and reasoned debate to ensure the right expectations are set both for both candidate and future employer.
Scoping your ability and skills as a candidate takes time and is reliant upon asking the right questions, the most valuable being those you cannot define alone; how you are, how you feel, your needs and aspirations are part of a quality mix that can be both attractive and unattractive at the same time. Candidates require careful preparation and encouragement to perform at their best because after all an interview is just a snap shot, for both candidates and employers alike, after all there is mutual risk in this futuristic step where there is much to be gained but more to be lost.
Delacy understand this critical path to success and the importance of coaching candidates and employers alike through a process of preparation in an imperfect market.

"'Thank you, Grace. Your honesty was really refreshing and so much more appreciated than the usual service I have had from other recruitment agencies I have dealt with in the past'

"I would just like to say thank you to all at DeLacy for the time and effort you put into finding me a job, I know you all worked hard and I will certainly recommend you to friends and colleagues.

"I don't think I would have made it this far without the positive approach and dedication from both you and John.
I have not yet come into contact with another agency with the ethics and approach held high by you and your colleagues.
Thank you.!
I will most certainly stay in contact."

"Dear Amanda,
I personally would like to thank yourself and John at De Lacy for your fantastic help and assistance in securing my recent position found by De Lacy. Your extra counselling prior to my interview was of great benefit and was truly 'beyond the call of duty..!'

Neil - Key Account Manager

Just wanted to thank you again for the nice conversation today. I've
worked with a few recruiting firms now and haven't come across one as
approachable and as personable as De Lacy. I was surprised (in a good
way) when you insisted on a phone conversation before passing on my CV
and really appreciate you taking the time. Since I'm
focused on a job in agriculture or animal health in the UK, I'm sure
we'll be working more together in the future and look forward to it."
John A.

As mentioned to John on Tuesday, after dealing with numerous job agencies over the last month or two I can easily say that De Lacy are certainly the best and most professional.
Many thanks for your time and communication during the search process, it was much appreciated.

"From one of Catherine's candidates whom she helped on the way to his interview: '' Thanks for the information and the "back up GPS service. Amazing the lengths you and your company will go--very impressed! '' Regards Andrew"

"Amanda understands the industry and the type of role we recruit for. She's able to advise us on the market if needed and uses her network to help us further. We found Amanda to be knowledgeable, approachable and efficient. She selects the candidates to send us very carefully instead of bombarding us with CVs.

Amanda successfully helped us recruit for Area Sales Managers and Field Service Specialists where we'd been struggling for months.

Moreover we find her a pleasure to work with"
Marie - HR Manager Major Machinery Manufacturer

"Having worked with Amanda now on multiple searches for employees in Europe. All I can say is Service Service Service!! Attention to detail, communication and outstanding results. Some of our best employees reside in Europe thanks to Amanda's knowledge and understanding of our company and culture. Would recommend and sincerely continue to utilize the services of Amanda Latham."
Tammy - HR Manager - International company specialising in Precision Engineering for Agriculture

She shows real empathy. Well done Grace and keep up the great work!"
