  • Douglas Scott are on a mission…


    We’re reaching for the stars.

    To be the 1st legal recruitment agency to place a lawyer on the moon and - to satisfy our accountants - grow our business by at least 25% every earth year in the run up to that.


    Our mission in business is to make our customers happy, our competitors jealous and our mums proud.

    It works on a number of levels for us but in essence our aim is provide the best possible service to our candidates and clients, keep a few steps in front of the opposition in all areas of business practice and at all times working in a way that is respectful of good old fashioned manners and principles.


    Influencing our thoughts and actions on our journey:

    • EARNING TRUST by delivering on our promises and holding our hands up if ever we don't get something completely right.
    • OOZING CONFIDENCE by being totally sure in our process and our people. It's not conceited... it simply justifies our claim to be the experts.
    • FOREVER IMPROVING by being hungry to learn and develop. We strive everyday to say, "We're better today than we were yesterday. Bring on tomorrow!"​
    • SHARING KNOWLEDGE by believing wholeheartedly in 'give to get'. Anyway, keeping everything we know to ourselves would just be greedy.​
    • RESPECTING PROFIT by appreciating that unhappy customers vote with their wallets/purses. Thankfully, our business and profitability has grown every year since it started.​
    • SMILING, LOTS ;o) by enjoying what we do – and the company of the people we do it with. We recommend you Google 'What the Heck is Arbejdsglaede?'
