Value Driven

At the heart of everything we do are our Henderson Scott Core Values:
Knowledge, Integrity & Innovation

Our vision is to provide exceptional service with optimum professionalism. Characterised by innovation and integrity we ensure consistent quality in delivery and alignment with our mission to become the number one partner of choice within our dedicated markets.

At Henderson Scott, honesty and professional integrity are as important as the knowledge and ability of our individual consultants. Our consultants and managers deliver honest, dependable services to clients and candidates alike.


Always going
Above & Beyond

We understand what it takes to become our clients’ most effective partner.

We have built our services driven by client needs, and as our clients’ businesses have grown, so have we. It is our ability to consistently exceed the expectations of our clients, acting as an extension of their own in-house teams rather than just another agency, which reinforces the longevity and success of the partnerships we enjoy.


We’re environmentally conscious.
We encourage our staff in their own personal charitable endeavours in addition to the commitments we make as a business.

This year, alongside continuing to build our forest with Ecologi, Henderson Scott are proud to support five new charities. Our selected charities are usually decided on by the Senior Leadership Team, however, this year we wanted to give our employees the opportunity to nominate charities that mean something to them and then work together as a team to set their own target to support their chosen charity. Each of these charities has a unique mission, but they all share a commitment to improving the lives of people in need.

We are excited to announce the additional charities we have partnered with for 2023 are Stepping Stones DS, The Whitechapel Centre, My Name'5 Doddie Foundation, British Heart Foundation and Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity.

Each of these charities are doing important work to improve the lives of people in need, and we are proud to support all their efforts. With the help of our charity representatives, we are as committed and dedicated as ever to raise as much as we can in 2023 for these 6 charities and hope that our contribution will help to make a difference.

Keep a close eye on our Social Media to see the events and fundraisers that we get up to throughout the year to support these fantastic organisations!
