Carr Lyons has breadth and depth to go beyond the generic profiles and find the right fit for our small but global team.

EMEA CRO /CCO – Large US Insurer


“I have worked with Carr Lyons for over 10 years. During this time, I have completed a number of hires in the credit risk management space. Throughout the hiring chain, from understanding the job specification, to sourcing appropriate candidates, organising the interview process and the eventual hiring, Carr Lyons are thoroughly professional. What I find differentiates Carr Lyons is a highly responsive and transparent approach, which allows me as the hiring manager to focus on selecting the right candidates rather than managing the process itself.”
