Vision & Values

Carlyle was founded on values that remain the foundation of our service offering today. In all of our work with clients and candidates, our values are integral in ensuring we continue to provide the best possible service.

Mutually successful relationships with all

We believe in nurturing positive, rewarding relationships, encouraging two-way conversation and collaboration with all our partners.

Create sustainable value

We approach every assignment and relationship with the aim of creating long-term value for everyone involved.

The highest levels of integrity in everything we do

We act in an ethical, honest and transparent manner across every aspect of our business activities.

Do the right thing

We constantly challenge ourselves to ensure we are offering the best service for clients and candidates alike.


We value our partnerships, treating everyone with the same respect and courtesy we would like to receive.


We are passionate and enthusiastic about our work and the people we work with, encouraging a culture that is rewarding and fun for everyone. We believe this radiates to all that we encounter.

As part of this commitment, we fund courses and educational materials and take part in charity events within our industry to encourage learning and growth, enabling our team and peers to reach their full potential. We have successfully partnered with Scottish universities to employ and mentor Saltire students. We also provide internships for aspiring business leaders as well as utilising our knowledge and networks to match people who can help and support each other in personal and business development.

On a local level we support Hopscotch Children’s Charity, who provide holidays for disadvantaged children within Edinburgh. We even work from the ground up, supporting the Trees for Life environmental programme by planting a tree for every assignment we successfully fill.
