We’re a team in the true sense of the word. We will invest in you through reviews, support and training. You’ll be trusted to run your desk your way and go with your instincts, but be reassured that there’s a robust support structure in place if you need help. We love team players, but we also value solution-orientated creative thinkers who are able to take the initiative when it counts.

Whilst we are split over two offices as a group we operate as a family, we work together and always make sure we consider and support each other and we do the same externally with our Clients and candidates.

A few words from our team

Chloe Wilford-I joined Sewell Wallis over 3 years’ ago as a Consultant and have managed to work my way from Consultant, to Senior Consultant to Business Manager.  Personal development/progression and bonus are the biggest motivators for me so throughout my time here my Director has always tailored my targets to include those, to get me to where I want to be in my career. I have never had anything like that in previous roles, progression/targets were always standard throughout the business so it is nice to know that my development here is much more personal. 

Our little work family in Leeds make those tougher days in recruitment way more bearable and everyone is so helpful too.

Claire Ashton- A family feel company that really appreciates you as an individual and not a number. Great people, great working environment, great benefits.

Hannah Bateman-Each day at work I’m treated as an individual. Every individual consultant has different strengths and this is something that has always been celebrated by Sewell Wallis. There are no set rules as to how to approach your role within the business– you are encouraged to take ownership while being offered support and guidance.

Throughout my four years at Sewell Wallis, I have moved into a senior role and I can confidently say that my growth as a consultant is down to positive reinforcement, consistent support and strong mentorship from both management and colleagues, which gave me confidence in my own abilities and allowed me to expand my skillset and progress with the company!
