I have worked with Newsom Consulting for a number of years and have always found them to be professional, organised, and proactive. They know their market, understand our business, and deliver the right fit of candidates within agreed timescales. They’re also very pleasant to do business with.
Newsom Consulting have delivered a number of high calibre people to the project, they always ensure they understand the brief and work to tight timescales. Given the choice I would always use Jim for future assignments.
I first used Newsom to find an Executive Director (engineering operations). Since then I have had no hesitation in referring Jim and his team to major members of my network such as the UK’s innovation agency. I know they will provide a highly professional, objective and successful service.
Jim is easy to work with and operates as an extension of our Talent Acquisition team. He works well in our complex organisational structure and has been able to bring great candidates for difficult to fill roles.
We received a shortlist of diverse but well qualified candidates in a relatively short period of time and, unusually, had more than one good candidate to make a final choice from. Jim’s knowledge of the market and ability to probe and fully understand our requirements was key.
Knowledgeable and experienced within the market. Understood our bespoke approach and was able to adjust their approach to suit the desired skill set we were seeking. Jim is very approachable and clearly has a excellent pool of contacts, allowing him to actively headhunt to suit whatever the need may be. Should we look to hire at top level again, I would not hesitate to contact Jim again.
Jim has led the searches and from his considerable knowledge of the rail sector has each time provided TfL with an excellent list of potential candidates from which is has been able to make a suitable appointment.
Jim did a fantastic job at bringing about a shortlist of potential candidates for some very niche roles, and we have continued to engage his services as he’s attained a proven track record in delivering our needs.
Jim is professional and focused on delivering high-quality results. He ensures that he fully understands the brief and delivers to it. He was a pleasure to work with.
