Don’t just take our word for it…

The service we received was excellent as we would expect based on previous experience with Sewell Wallis.

On a personal note, Hannah and Faith are by far the best recruiters I have worked with whenever I have been looking for a new role and would always be my first port of call, or would be my recommendation for any finance professionals I knew who were looking for a new job.

Lawrie, I would like to thank you for your time and effort.

I’m often not impressed by recruitment agents (sorry to say!), but you have been top drawer and we wouldn’t hesitate to put you to the top of our list for any future recruitments at this level.

I know how much work you’ve put into it and your communication and diligence have both been excellent. 

Simon COO

I found Sewell Wallis to be a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.

Working with Becky on the placement of several transactional roles over the last few months, she took the time to understand our business needs and the qualities we were looking for in candidates.

Becky only put forward suitable candidates and her recommendations have strengthened our team. Highly recommended.

Danielle Financial Controller

I have worked with Sewell Wallis for a number of years, both in the capacity as a candidate myself, and when looking to hire candidates for roles, on both occasions they have been extremely helpful and pleasant to work with.

They took the time to understand the requirements we were looking for in roles and made sure they understood the business environment the candidates would be coming into, which had the effect of finding the best candidates for the roles.

The team are always really helpful and friendly when working with them and never had a problem, especially when needing to work at a fast pace to secure the best candidates for the roles.

The True Cost of Counter Offers

The True Cost of Counter Offers

Anyone who manages people has been there: a valuable employee is resigning, the panic is setting in, what do you do? You counter offer them to convince them to stay. This might seem like a logical solution to get the potential leaver to stick around, and avoid the costs associated with hiring their replacement, but counter offers can, more often than not, lead to unintended consequences that can cause long-term damage to your business.
