To nurture and empower exceptional executive and business support staff to fulfil their true potential.
You are at the heart of everything we do
At our executive and business support recruitment agency, we take the time to get to know you, your individual strengths, requirements and career aspirations. We will only ever brief you on jobs that we feel are suitable and aim to make your job search as simple and pleasurable as possible.
Not only do we meet all of the professionals we work with, but we also aim to meet all of the employers we hire for, too, on-site at their offices. This helps us understand the working culture, so you can be assured we will only match you with roles that fit your criteria.
We offer all of the professionals we work with a bespoke interview preparation session, either over the phone or in person. Our priority is to boost your confidence and ensure that you are fully prepared, so we will cover specific questions and scenarios you are likely to encounter and share our top interview tips with you to set you up to succeed.
Lily and Emma are professional, efficient and very down to earth. They have placed me in both temp and perm positions and my experiences were very positive. The best recruitment agency I have used. Would definitely recommend.
Marie, Partners' Secretary
"Professional, efficient and friendly"
Unlike any recruitment agency I have ever used. The team at Lily Shippen are true professionals, who care about finding the best fit for you, not about the commission. I’m now two months into a role within an exciting and dynamic company, and I couldn’t be happier.
Roisin, PA to CEO
"I couldn't recommend Lily Shippen more!"
Victoria is one of the most skilful and empathetic recruiters I have met. She puts you at ease and hones in on your attitude and strengths, layering and matching them to client requirements.
Beverly, Director of Strategy
"A rare find"
