Fairness

At Henderson Brown, we want to win – but not any cost. Our environment is determined but decent, energetic but mature. So with obvious integrity and personal respect, we expect our employees to behave fairly – to the company and colleagues, clients and candidates. Because we tailor our service – but we don’t cut corners.

Ambition

At Henderson Brown, we are ambitious for growth. Not just for the business growth of our company and teams, but also for the personal growth of our employees. We aim to develop their individual skills and roles, requiring, in return, the necessary drive, dedication and depth of specialist expertise. We are also ambitious for our clients. We aim to find them the best candidates. Precisely by helping those candidates find bigger and better opportunities, matching their personal ambitions.

Superior Service

At Henderson Brown, we are here to serve our clients and candidates – and to do so more effectively than our competitors. By offering the very best blend of sector knowledge, committed service and personal courtesy.

So people return to us. Time and time again.

Talented

We take a long-term view. Which means we develop new business ethically. With energy, focus, imagination and intelligence. And we are proud to do so.

Commerical

Because at Henderson Brown, it’s all about building rewarding relationships – with our clients, with our candidates and with each other.
