At Leathwaite, traits like respect, integrity, drive and passion are basic entry requirements in our people and behaviour.

As such, our chosen employee values are ones that fuel our culture and performance, simultaneously giving us an abnormally low staff turnover and a track record of consistent growth.


Leathwaite is driven by three core values:

Be Distinctive

You cannot lead by following. We help clients, candidates and colleagues understand why we are different from the competition, and how this makes us best placed to help them achieve their objectives.

Maintain Humility

A culture in which the hierarchy is flat and everyone is open and accessible to others, enables sharing and collaboration. We do not allow title, rank or ego to cloud this thinking.

Compete Together

A great team is bigger than the sum of its parts. By pushing in the same direction and driving towards collective goals simultaneously, we will ultimately achieve more and so will our clients.

If people believe they share values with a company, they will stay loyal to the brand.
