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.

Managing Director, SPL Powerlines UK

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.
