Candidate Testimonials

A dynamic, bespoke and independently run recruitment agency


‘Caroline has been brilliant right from the start. After having not so great experiences with other recruitment agencies, I found it hard to trust recruiters, Caroline was different, she got to know me before even discussing my achievements on my CV. One of the few recruiters that do it right! Caroline was very attentive, genuine, easily contactable and made sure I was updated every step of the way. Thank you Caroline, I will be sure to recommend your services to others’ (Sophie H)


Penny and Caroline run a first class recruitment business. They are knowledgeable, capable, hardworking and practice professional integrity. They ensure positions are a good fit before submitting resumes to companies and are extremely personable, and I highly recommend them.  Elaine Murphy


From the moment James Newbury appointments made first contact with me, until the moment I was offered the role in which they assisted me in obtaining, I received nothing less than a first class and personal experience.
Caroline is a particularly dedicated person who’s love for what she does and her professionalism are clear for all to see. You receive a completely unique experience with James Newbury from the first meet with them, which will always be at a time and place convenient for you, to the regular texts and phone calls of encouragement and advice you will continually receive throughout the process.
If I was to ever need to look for work, or I was asked to recommend a place to go to seek employment, James Newbury would be the first and only place I directed someone.
I cannot speak highly enough about this company and their process. Thank you guys for all your help! Keep up the fantastic work 🙂  Ricky Howe


Caroline found me several positions in the past. She’s a professional and dedicated recruiter with a personal touch. I would recommend her recruitment services to anyone looking for a new role.  Nina San


Caroline was a superstar right from the off. She took the time to get to know me as person before identifying my skills and discussing in detail what I wanted from a role. She added a real personal touch that puts James Newbury above and beyond and other recruitment agency I’ve used in the past. I would highly recommend their services and can’t thank Caroline enough! Thanks, Essie


I would like to thank Penny & Caroline of James Newbury Appointments for introducing me to my new employer.  At a time when I was looking for the next step in my career they have provided the opportunity and support to secure my new role. Great, professional service with a friendly touch. I would recommend them anytime, I was especially grateful for the time and care they put in AFTER I was well in to my new role, top drawer. Thank you again!  Dee


I spoke with Caroline over the phone when she approached me for a position she felt I was most suitable for me, immediately I felt at ease, she arranged for me to meet Penny, out of hours and at a place that suited myself to discuss and have a chat in general about me and what I wanted; well that in itself was reassuring in that I could push forward my journey towards a new position without the worry of having to leave work early or rush a meeting over lunch to meet Penny.  What a delight she was friendly and very approachable, I knew I was in good hands and we agreed the role I was contacted about was a good fit for me and me for the client.

Caroline then guided me through the whole process, from guidance on the company and the job through to the interview and the process it would take and kept in touch supporting me throughout, never once letting me feel I was going through this alone.  I was successful and offered the position and I am very excited to be starting soon!

Thanks James Newbury Team, I can’t recommend you highly enough!   Tina


“Caroline was very informative, helpful and a very great listener so she could find me my perfectly suited role. She was always on hand if I needed her and would be very handy when it came to preparing for interviews/meetings by sending over relevant documents to look at so you are confident, prepared and know what to expect. Thank you Caroline for landing me my perfect role! ”  Jay S
