Lucy Rider


I have worked in talent for over 20 years, dedicated to accounting and finance recruitment within Yorkshire. I have recruited across all industry sectors, but in recent years have predominantly focussed on public sector and not-for-profit clients.

I have a genuine interest in the people that I work with, helping both candidates find the right job and clients secure the best talent for their team. I work hard to develop my networks for the long-term, and I know to achieve that every candidate and client I support has to receive the highest levels of service.

I am also an enthusiastic and supportive ally for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, and proud to be a Mental Health Champion.
