Featured Roles


I have worked with Dylan for almost a decade to source a variety of roles across the finance skillset. He operates with high integrity, appropriately manages expectations, and always finds a fantastic range of candidates. One thing I particularly like is Dylan’s extensive screening process, he never fills the shortlist by default but instead will only share a candidate if he is convinced they could be a good fit. He truly works to ensure the candidate is set up for success and the company benefits as a result

Nick Honeyman-Brown
Group CFO

I’ve worked with Dylan on interim and permanent roles for a number of years now and he consistently delivers a high-quality shortlist of well-prepared candidates for anything I’ve asked for. Dylan and the team are excellent at quickly identifying the key skills for the role and filtering the candidate selection accordingly. Dylan has also been a great sounding board in helping define and refine the requirement, knowing the market for finance business partnering roles specifically better than anyone else.

Group Financial Controller
Bloomsbury Publishing Plc

I have worked with Dylan and his team in sourcing candidates for both interim and permanent assignments. I have been impressed by the depth of understanding Dylan has of not only our business but also the dynamic and culture of our finance community. This results in an efficient and consultative process providing us with high calibre people. In addition to this Dylan demonstrates an excellent understanding of the marketplace and in doing so is great sounding board providing me with insightful and relevant information.

Luke Milner,
CFO – Liberty Global
Energy Ventures

I have previously retained Dylan to find senior permanent staff both here in the UK and overseas and also provide interim solutions at short notice. The business was undergoing significant growth and change and my brief to Dylan has always been very specific. The team at Lorus Consulting demonstrated an excellent understanding of the requirements and are clearly well networked and pro-active within their sector. The process from start to finish is managed professionally, communication is clear, meetings are seamless and the outcome has always been the same with a successful appointment.

This always culminates in a smooth and efficient recruitment experience.

Sam Horrocks
Group Financial Controller

I was placed by Dylan at a cryptoasset and payments company as Finance Director and have to say my experience was one that is sometimes rare when finding a new role. The communication was always super efficient and friendly helping to result in my successful hiring. Having been placed by Dylan I certainly would not hesitate to utilise him and the team at Lorus Consulting for any recruiting needs in the future.
