List Lookup: Check if user exists in list?

So I am trying to create a Leave Approval workflow and seem to have some unique requirements.


Basically everyone in our organisation need to be approved twice (once by their line manager and then again by the head of department).... well everyone except a certain list of users (executive staff).


I have two approvals set up but I want the executive staff users to bypass the first approval process.


The way I have set this up is to do a Run If and do a List Lookup. I am checking if the current user (Initiator) exists on another list - if they do then skip.


Am I doing this all wrong? Is this not the intended purpose of List Lookup?
