Who Are Greycoat Lumleys?

Greycoat Lumleys is a name that has become synonymous with superior recruitment solutions over the last 25 years in the areas of Private Households and Estates, Childcare and Education, Catering and Hospitality, Corporate Environments, Ski and Yacht staffing and International Staffing.

Our reputation, local understanding and International reach (thanks to our strategically placed offices) means that we attract the best, most talented candidates from all over the world so that we constantly have an unrivalled database of contacts. We invest and innovate and our Salary Survey reports are recognised as an industry guide by professionals and the press alike.

No matter how our reach and reputation grows, at our heart we remain a "people business". Everyone we work with is known to us personally and - put simply - we are excellent at matching people with people. This is what has earned us a reputation for successful placements; it is the reason multiple generations of the same family have been cared for by our candidates; it is why many of our candidates stay with the same clients for their entire careers.

It is our understanding of people that drove us at the very start as a small, ambitious team in London wanting to raise the standards of private staffing, it drives us now as a UK and International brand with multiple locations and it is our people who will continue to drive us over the next 25 years.​

  • ​Lumleys has a way above-average consultant in Shannon Anderson. It's hard to excel in the service business, especially for finicky types like us who are lucky enough to employ people.
