We realise that the Leonid way of working may be different to what you're used to.

So we've compiled a list of some of the most commonly-asked questions about our service.

If there's anything we haven't covered here then feel free to get in touch and ask us!

Once the contract is signed, we will work exclusively on the role/s discussed. If our service isn’t for you after this, we can part ways with no hard feelings. However, we’re confident our solution is a game changer.

With our Magic Month search method, we typically invest 7x more resources and time into each search compared to a standard recruitment firm. We cannot do that without commitment from you. But rest assured, we have a 98% success rate on the searches we accept, and we will only say yes to a mandate if we are extremely confident we will deliver.


No, even though our high-end service is typically only found in Executive Search, we offer the same standard regardless of seniority. The idea is that we will work with you to build the team from the ground up. 

Our networks are global. Although our offices are based in London, Barcelona and Paris, we are just as likely to be recruiting in Singapore, San Francisco or Stockholm as we are in those Leonid locations.

We believe the typical staggered rebate period is confusing and unnecessary. We keep it simple: If the candidate leaves within 10 weeks*, then we will find a replacement… for free. 

*Subject to certain contractual conditions being met

First of all, we only accept a mandate if we are extremely confident that we can deliver as we don’t want to waste your time, our time, or candidates’ time. We understand well where we can add value, and where we can’t, and choose carefully. However, if you retain us and we don’t deliver, then the initial fee will be refunded. We do however have a 98% success rate on the mandates that we accept, so the risk of this happening is extremely low.

We focus almost exclusively on permanent positions, as that’s what our network wants. In today’s environment, those we speak with are prioritising job security and are only moving for something truly exciting and unique where they can grow and develop over the long term.
