About The Director

Leilani Reader

leilani-director"When I started the agency, I wanted to base everything about how we worked on being principled, professional and personable. Naïve some would say; however, I hope that we have achieved this balance 16 years in.

We genuinely put our candidates and clients best interests first and care deeply about the relationships we build. In a sector that is dominated by less than ethical practices, it is so important to us that we are truthful, transparent and thoughtful in our approach to recruitment.”

Former In-House Counsel Leilani Reader ventured into the recruitment industry focusing on legal recruitment in 2003. Utilising her knowledge of the industry from both candidate and client perspectives to recruit within it, Leilani has excellent recruitment expertise and the ability to retain clients with a very personal approach.
