Since taking over as the CEO of Crossrail I have put a lot of effort into establishing the right leadership team to complete the project. Newsom Consulting have been a great partner in this work. Together we have worked to assemble a great new team  with the right energy and capability for one of the worlds most complex projects.

Jim and team are a real pleasure to work with; responsive and sensitive to our unique circumstances.

CEO, Crossrail

Heathrow have partnered with Newsom Consulting to recruit several key leadership roles for our Expansion team. On each search they have been successful in providing an excellent shortlist from which we have appointed a high-calibre candidate. Jim has worked with Heathrow for a number of years and has developed a good understanding of our business, and we have recently appointed Newsom Consulting as an executive search partner for the Expansion programme.

We have used Newsom Consulting extensively for a number of years, we have always found them responsive and great to work with. Their understanding of the brief and our business has always resulted in a shortlist and successful candidate that meets our requirements.

Chief Executive, Murphy Group

Atkins have worked with Newsom Consulting for several years now and are very pleased with the quality of their work and the customer experience. They have a deep understanding and experience in our industry and have a vast network of outstanding talent. They provided us with detailed insight on candidates at longlist and shortlist stages, took the time to understand our business, and throughout the search process I felt their commitment to delivering a great service. We value this commitment in our business partners and I highly recommend using Newsom Consulting for executive recruitment.

We have worked with Newsom Consulting on a number of successful senior searches. They listen carefully to assemble the right brief and have identified strong, well targeted shortlists. Their written documentation on the search and shortlisted candidates is informative and insightful.

Managing Director Rail, WSP

We have been consistently impressed with their deep market knowledge and their ability to build a strong list of candidates against a challenging brief.  What has really differentiated Newsom’s approach is the effort which they have made to understand our business and our specific requirements, meaning that they are able not only to source very qualified candidates but also provide valued insight on how we might refine our search to secure better results.

SPL have worked with Newsom Consulting for several years and they have assisted our UK business over a period of significant growth; successfully recruiting a number of key people to leadership roles across our business, including project leadership, commercial, HSQE, business development, general management and engineering. They have a good understanding of the industry, are well networked and are easy to work with. I have subsequently recommended Jim to others and wouldn’t hesitate to do so again.

Cleshar have partnered with Newsom Consulting to recruit senior appointments for several years now, and they have always provided a great service. We recently engaged with them to recruit several key senior roles in our organisation, and despite the complexities of undertaking an executive search during a pandemic, they were able to recommend a strong shortlist with a good blend of people. We were impressed with the quality of candidates they were able to attract from major companies in the sector and had a choice of several excellent candidates at final stage to appoint from. They have their finger on the pulse of the industry and I would highly recommend Newsom Consulting to others.

Chief Operating Officer, Cleshar

The approach we have taken is a mixture of search and advertisement, and in all instances success has been achieved. We consider Jim and his team to be an extension of our recruitment team rather than a supplier.

Human Resources Director, Crossrail

We recently worked with Newsom Consulting to recruit a key senior hire for our team at DOHL. We found the executive search process was very smooth, with a real choice of a number of very good candidates at shortlist stage from which we were able to make a successful appointment. The interaction was good, Jim provided us with valued insight throughout the process. The successful candidate we appointed has worked out very well, and I would recommend Newsom Consulting to others.
