We've been
expecting you


We took a recruitment consultancy model and gave it a personality.

Lightning is here and it's time to do business with someone who understands you and your brand.

Lightning is a full service recruitment consultancy brand that we hope you'll want to represent you, or your company.

Founded in 2019 by Chris King (formerly of This is Beyond), we were born from frustrations with current industry offerings and have flourished by providing personalised services to both candidates and clients alike.

With a love and understanding that covers all parts of the luxury travel & lifestyle industry we are looking to form long lasting partnerships (and ideally not have too many one night stands)! 

Lightning is here and you're welcome ⚡️


We let our work do the talking and have grown the business through word of mouth & referrals.


We work with luxury brands who want to build a partnership together.

Operating across the luxury travel sector, we specialise in finding companies and brands their next superstar through exclusive, targeted headhunting. Unlike competitors we do not use job boards, but instead maintain relationships with our database and when needed headhunt personally outside of it.  

We also want to represent your brand how you would to a client and so will personally help write your job specs, create bespoke job adverts and advise on hiring procedures before beginning working on the role. After all, a candidate's perception of your company starts with the recruitment process.

We recruit across the entirety of the luxury travel & lifestyle industry but specialise in Hotels | PR | Travel Agencies | Sales | Representation | Events | Marketing | Lifestyle | Fashion
