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.

 Leeds to Liverpool Cycle for Brain Tumour Research 💛

Leeds to Liverpool Cycle for Brain Tumour Research 💛

On 27th April, Suli and I attempted the Leeds to Liverpool cycle, a 126 mile ride covering the whole canal length, with beautiful scenery. We took on this challenge to raise money for Brain Tumour Research, Sewell Wallis’ charity partner of the year. This is a cause close to our hearts, as our colleague, Hannah Bateman, lost her dad to a brain tumour in 2023. We were determined to raise a ton of money and tackle this huge challenge head-on; neither of us are cyclists and we hadn’t done any training, so it would be an absolute slog. The first 27 miles from Leeds to Skipton were pretty tough as our bodies got used to it, but nothing compared to what was to come! The paths were flat, level and straight; overall it was actually a really nice ride. It was, however, absolutely freezing as it was only 9:20 am by the time we got to our first stop.
