Testimonials

Every search has its own specific challenges. Our mandate is to go further in our search process, to approach challenges creatively and to reach out to the best and most appropriate talent across our networks.

We give you a personal and direct service, one that builds into a long-term relationship through honesty and transparency. Commitment to your needs means we’ll always be in touch, and ready to give a straight answer. It’s an approach that has worked for our clients, large and small, across transport and infrastructure.

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

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.

Managing Director Signalling, Transportation UK & Europe, SNC-Lavalin Atkins

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.

Chief Executive, Meridian Mobility

I have always been skeptical about executive search consultants until I met Richard at Newsom Consulting, the approach and processes were professional, the pre screening proved invaluable which differentiated Newsom from the others, allowing us to focus in on a small number of credible candidates. The selected shortlist were all capable and indeed made our task of selection even harder as 4 of the 5 could have been successful, after almost a year of searching, Newsom helped us to fill the role in one appointment. Richard was great, Newsom were great and I’d highly recommend them.

Managing Director Terminals, Freightliner Group Managing Director Terminals,

We have worked with Newsom Consulting on a number of strategic hires into our team. The feedback from our line managers on their work has been great. Newsom Consulting’s pre-screening process to curate strong shortlist of candidates is invaluable as it enables our leaders to focus in on interviewing a small number of credible candidates for each role they are recruiting

HR Director UK & Europe – G&W UK

This was the first time 4way Consulting have used an executive search firm and we were naturally nervous about picking the right one when investing significant money and time. We went through a selection process and we were attracted to Newson Consulting because they felt supportive, open and honest and well informed about our particular market segment. We should not have worried, Newsom were all of this, as well as fantastic partners to work with, who provided a high quality shortlist of candidates that met with our business needs. We would not hesitate in using Newsom again and highly recommend them.

“UK Power Network Services recently partnered with Newsom Consulting to recruit a key strategic appointment. They provided us with a targeted candidate search and shortlist of candidates from which we were able to make a successful appointment. Throughout the engagement there was senior involvement from Newsom Consulting and they demonstrated deep knowledge of the sector and market. They were patient, thorough and professional throughout the search.”

Newsom Consulting are a quality organisation who have provided us with some exceptional candidates. They have the ability to take away a large part of the recruitment workload and make it much easier for us to fill roles, which would otherwise take considerably more management time.

An excellent process for capturing our requirements, resulting in an impressive array of potential candidates. Working with Jim and Paul we were able to get to a really good shortlist – resulting in an excellent appointment.

Newsom Consulting provided a very professional service resulting in a great selection of high quality candidates.
