Our Purpose

We are here to advise and support people and organisations to realise their potential so that together we can impact lives and communities for the better.

Rutherford Cross Finance Recruitment Team

We are Rutherford Cross.

Rutherford Cross is a specialist search and selection firm focussed exclusively on senior finance appointments. We work with leading organisations around the UK to source the highest-calibre finance professionals.

We have assembled a team of the best recruitment professionals in the market. With their expertise and networks at our disposal, we are well placed to advise candidates on charting the career path they want – and to help our clients navigate the trends and challenges within specialist finance recruitment. Our approach ensures that we can offer a market-leading standard of service to both clients and candidates.

We are here to advise and support people and organisations to realise their potential, so that together we can impact lives and communities for the better. This is our purpose. This is why we get out of bed in the morning, this is why we work so hard, this is why we choose to come together as a team, and this is why we feel proud of our achievements at the end of the day.

With purpose set, our values guide our behaviours, and consequently the experience our clients, candidates, colleagues, and communities have when we partner with them.  Our values are:

  • Together we achieve more
  • Make a difference
  • Always do the right thing
  • Be passionate and determined
  • Be famous for excellence

Livingston James Group is an employee owned business.

This means that every employee in our business – from our office support staff to our senior leaders – is personally invested in the outcomes we achieve for our clients, candidates, colleagues, and community partners.

As a purpose and values-driven business, we measure our success by the positive impact we have on these stakeholder groups for years to come. Our ownership model is yet another way to ensure that collaborative and mutually beneficial, long-term outcomes remain at the heart of everything we do.
