As a rule we use agencies for assisting us with our recruitment requirements. This is due to the time it takes to employ the right candidate for our company.
We had a new role which required a specific skill set. The requirements were sent out to our normal agencies, who tried for some time, but were unsuccessful in finding the right candidate for us.
We decided to try James Newbury Appointments. From the very start with the questions that they asked, I felt that they were interested in what we were looking for as a company. I also liked that fact that they meet their clients face to face before presenting their details to us.
Within a couple of days they had sourced a candidate for us. They contacted us and explained their findings for the potential candidate and sent the CV. I must say it was very refreshing not to be bombarded with lots of CV’s, thereby showing they had a real interest in getting the right person for us. I am pleased to say they succeeded on the first attempt.
Pretty good going!
Will I use James Newbury Appointments again? Yes I certainly will. The reason for this is that they are professional, friendly and look out for the interests of the company and the candidate.
Working in a demanding, fast paced environment I rely on recruitment agencies in finding quality candidates for various roles. Working with James Newbury Appointments has restored my faith in using agencies for recruitment.
I was not bombarded with irrelevant CV’s or unsuitable candidates, only CV’s from candidates that had been interviewed and screened by James Newbury and met the criteria that had been set.
This saved me hours of trawling through irrelevant applications and underprepared candidates. Every candidate I interviewed from James Newbury was, well informed about the company and the role they were applying for, a refreshing change.
I felt that James Newbury really cared about filling my vacancies, I was constantly kept up to date and feedback was detailed, comprehensive and prompt.
I am glad to say that James Newbury assisted in filling my latest position, I only wish I had 2 roles available, as 2 out of the 3 candidates presented were excellent, both could of have had a job!
I will definitely be using James Newbury Appointments in the future, in fact I have just recommended them to a colleague!

What really sets James Newbury apart is their willingness to listen and understand my business. Every candidate they have sent over is has not only been a great fit for the job, but a great cultural fit – and it helps that they have met and interviewed them already. I have used many recruitment agencies in the past and James Newbury by far exceeds my expectations and have saved me time and money by finding the right people.
