"I have worked with Chloe on a number of placements in my team. She has always taken the time and effort to understand what I need as the hiring manager from the individual and help filter candidates to the role on offer. She has taken a lot time to understand the company as well as the team role to get the best candidate not just on experience but also on team fit. Candidates have always come prepared to interviews and I know Chloe would have helped prep them and encourage them before and afterwards, which has made sure the candidates are making the right impression. Chloe has always been a pleasure to work with, she has a great attitude and drive in her work and we have always been delighted with the candidates she has provided us for temporary roles with some taking on permanent positions when they’ve become available. She takes the time to check in the candidates and myself, even weeks after the placement. Always a pleasure working with her!"

Burning Night Group

"Always received an excellent professional service from Chloe for recruitment requirements over the past few years. A good selection of candidates has always been put forward and has proved to be very successful in filling positions. A delight to work with."

Liberty Speciality Steel

"We have built a strong partnership with Sewell Wallis over the past 8 months. Kayley has managed our account through a challenging period and has played a key role in assisting with our decentralisation transformation and achieving our business objectives.  Providing the majority or our new Finance Team Sewell Wallis understands our business demands and requirements and demonstrates this by matching relevant candidates for our vacancies, this has led to them becoming our Tier 1 supplier. I have no hesitation in recommending Sue, Kayley and the team."

Premier Farnell

"I have worked closely with Sewell Wallis' Leeds Team on several roles within our team over the last year. They took the time to really understand what we wanted from a candidate and just as importantly, how we wanted to manage the recruitment process. As requested, she only gave me 1 or 2 CVs that they genuinely believed would fit the criteria They really did listen to our feedback on each candidate and take that in to account going forward too. Due to them listening and understanding what we wanted, we were able to offer and secure 2 quality candidates, to join our team. I have recommended Sewell Wallis to other colleagues as I felt the level of service and support given was, and continues to be, amazing.".

They go to great lengths to understand the business, the requirements and the personalities in order to marry up the best candidates within the region. I am happy to recommend them for all Accountancy & Finance requirements. The team show a fantastic passion for what they do, with an excellent follow up service."

SIG plc

"I’ve only worked with Faith in recent months on a position within our Auditing team however, I have found her to be very professional and organised, and someone easy to engage with.

Faith’s approach to client support is very flexible, striving to achieve the best results for the client in terms of quality, impact, alignment to the client's business needs.

I'm sure she will continue to do extremely well and would have no hesitation in working with Faith again, or recommending her to others."


"We were pleased that Sewell Wallis spent the time to learn about our practice, visiting our office and listening to what we wanted in our team. More than that, they delivered a candidate who we value because they are a great fit with our existing employees and culture."

Lowell Group

"I have worked with Lucy and her team on a number of occasions and on both sides of the recruitment search and have always had good experiences. I always feel that Lucy listens to the type of candidate I need and pulls together a shortlist accordingly. Likewise, she would only discuss potential roles with me if she felt I would genuinely be interested and be a good fit.

Lucy and her team are always professional to deal with and I would recommend using Sewell Wallis without hesitation."


"I've now worked with Lucy on a number of assignments. I find Lucy to be very personable, hardworking and honest. Traits, which I believe make a great recruitment consultant. I would certainly want to work with Lucy in the future..."

"Lucy and the Leeds team has helped us recruit exactly the candidate we needed for the tough job of FD. She listened clearly to our requirements and worked closely with us during the process."

JSR Farming Group

"I have had the pleasure of being represented by Lucy and the Leeds team over the past year and am constantly impressed by their highly professional and personable approach. Lucy's links and understanding of the local marketplace make her the ideal “go to” consultant for both clients and candidates alike."


"I have worked with Kayley at Sewell Wallis for several years when recruiting accounts and commercial staff.  On every occasion she produced a choice of quality candidates, one of whom was perfect. 

Kayley really understands our business – indeed she always knows who we will choose before we do!  The recruitment process is always smooth and efficient, and Kayley’s 100% success rate means I always turn to Sewell Wallis when I’m looking for new staff."


"When it comes to recruiting for your team/business, I think that honesty and understanding of your teams needs  and how a new starter would fit in from the recruiter is the most important thing. You don’t want a recruiter pushing someone who is not either the right fit for the team or does not have the ability.

Gemma always knows what I am looking for in terms of team fit, and skill set. Rather than sending a shortlist of all active candidates Gemma takes the time to filter out the best and most reliable candidates who meet the spec and will give me an honest breakdown on each candidates merits.

This honesty was shown recently when a candidate SW had was proving difficult to get in for interview, knowing that I had a short timeframe to recruit, Gemma pulled the candidate and the business was able to make a quicker decision. This honesty stands out within the recruitment sector and is the primary reason I go back to Gemma each time I recruit. I have worked with Gemma across the last two businesses that I have worked for and I look forward to continuing  to do so in the future."


"I have worked with Gemma and Lucy at Sewells for 5 years now as both a candidate and a recruiter. When dealing with Sewells as a recruiter, they work hard to understand my requirements and ensure that they find the correct candidate to match the business culture as well as the needs of the business. When dealing with Sewells as a candidate, Sewells only put me forward for roles where they know the company is fast paced and where I will thrive-they really get to know their candidates. I look forward to working with Sewell Wallis for many years to come."
