Multi-lingual and cross-border R&D tax hires


The Situation

Ayming, a leading consultancy headquartered in Belgium, was looking to bolster its specialist R&D Incentive Division with a number of key hires


Ayming chose to work with Leonid based on our knowledge of the R&D tax niche. However, as HR Business Partner Sara Arryn said, “As a Belgian company, it is highly unusual for us to use a recruiter outside of Belgium. However, there are three key reasons why I chose to work with Leonid – and as expected, the geographical divide did not make any difference:

  1. Leonid are very selective in who they work with; they give you an exceptional level of service
  2. Their understanding of the R&D tax niche is unbeatable
  3. The LeonidLive video shortlist and the notes which they provide on the candidate are very thorough and extremely helpful for sharing with my colleagues.

Ayming and Leonid enjoy an ongoing and successful working partnership. Although the Leonid consultants, Léa and Julie, are based in France, they have managed to deliver quality shortlists of Dutch-speaking candidates and have so far placed X new team members, all within the agreed ‘Magic Month’ timeline.

Sara Arryn says:

“Leonid really do know their stuff. Given that they specialise in the very niche area of R&D tax, their knowledge of the sector is second to none. What’s more, they always understand exactly what I am looking for in candidates.

I know that Leonid not only give great service to their customers, they really look after the candidates, too. With my most recent hire, Julie had already built great relationships with the candidates, which made the selection process even smoother.

The ‘Magic Month’ method is very transparent. I can confidently inform my team of when we can expect a shortlist, an interview stage and a final offer.  You just don’t get this level of visibility with other recruiters; you are often left wondering what’s going on behind the scenes and the timelines can be very erratic.  I can always trust in Leonid to deliver and to go over and above what we expect.”
