Candidate reviews

don't just take our word for it, see what our candidates are saying about us...

We’re always delighted to receive positive feedback about our service and the impact we’ve made on the lives of the candidates we work with. Here’s what some of them had to say about us:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Great group of recruiters, genuinely come across as though they care about the candidates as individuals as much as the companies they are working on behalf of. Company culture is so important these days, this kind of professional and caring approach will only increase the quality of pairing up the correct individual with the correct role."

Head of Credit

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Very pleased with the service from New Leaf Search, Jane was super helpful and basically with her help, insight and knowledge of the company got me the role! Jane was great, always there to help and provide information. She took the time to find out what I was doing and where I wanted to be, and showed how the role would match that. She knows her client and the people very well and was able to give me key insights into the company and kept me up to date the throughout the whole process. Really good, not pushy like other agents."

Portfolio Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I found New Leaf Search to be professional, honest and communicative. It is very comforting to work with a recruitment agency that understands your needs and doesn’t treat you like a number. I was successful in my interviews, even in these uncertain times Jane went above and beyond to help, you’re a credit to the company."

Asset Leasing Assistant

I would thoroughly recommend their service to anybody in this industry."

Credit Manager

"New leaf Search are a pleasure to work with. They work so hard finding opportunities that fit my requirements. On both occasions, they have sourced a role that was just what I asked, fit my skills, helped me develop my career and I have been very successful at.

It was perfect timing and the role was very appealing to me for various reasons, including the previous experience that I had in the asset finance industry. I did a lot of research and had two very good interviews and was successfully offered a job which I am looking forward to starting. New Leaf Search were very informative and encouraging during the whole process and a pleasure to work with during a worrying time for me."

"New Leaf Search, and in particular Katherine Amin, have been outstanding from start to finish. Katherine has been incredibly knowledgeable, informative, and has been my biggest supporter in helping me achieve a new role. Not only has Katherine kept me updated every step of the way, but she is genuinely a delight to speak to, and really took the time to get to know me, as well as wish me luck before every interview/meeting, and promptly ask how they went afterwards.

Head of Asset Management

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I cannot thank New Leaf Search enough! I was relatively new to working with recruiters as I had never moved employer. I was whole heartedly recommended to New Leaf Search by an extremely trusted friend within the asset finance sector. I was nervous from the outset, unsure on what to do but after a simple message sent to Jane, she spent time understanding me and my position within the industry. Then worked alongside me and truly went above and beyond to guide me through the recruitment process and place me in a new role that is perfect for me and an opportunity to accelerate my career to the next level. The whole New Leaf Search team are friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable - Thank you so much!!!"

Sales Executive

"Even during the current COVID-19 pandemic, I have found it really easy to speak with Katherine on matters. Katherine has remained very contactable throughout the period. I have known her for approx 15+ years and she thoroughly understands my background, experience and reasons for moving roles during my career. Katherine supported me with a sincere and genuine 'human touch' which is invaluable when an individual finds themselves displaced in a role. She helped me secure a new role quickly whilst ensuring that I did not lose sight of my career objectives and most importantly my confidence. Thank you Katherine."

Marketing Manager

"Jane has been fantastic in helping me to secure a great job offer. Prompt updates given throughout the process and very reliable in terms of coming back with replies. She listened when other recruiters wouldn't. Most importantly her attentiveness is outstanding by providing detailed information about the job, the hiring company's background and also interview sample questions and answers for preparation. I would recommend Jane and New Leaf Search to any job seeker and employer. By far the best consultancy I've come across in many years and the level of attentiveness is outstanding. "

Operations Executive

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Good, fast, and they know details that I cannot know as a candidate."

Enterprise Account Manager, Germany

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Business Development Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"After being contacted via LinkedIn by Jane in regards to a position the process was extremely quick. I was offered the role within a week of my initial interview, which I went into, feeling confident and well informed from the many phone and email conversations between Jane and I. She was nothing but supportive and honestly wanted the best for me and my career. I can’t thank Jane enough for being so lovely and pushing me for a role that she knew would be perfect for me."

New Business Development Manager, Direct

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"It was a refreshing change to deal with a company that wanted to know about me, understood my needs and also understood the employers needs. The speed of service and response is fantastic. All in all they get it done right first time which means a great deal to me."

Area Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Jane & Katherine genuinely care about their clients and you can tell they are not in it for a quick win - as an individual who has gone through the process of getting a new job through New Leaf Search, I couldn't recommend their services more!! I'd recently left a great tier 1 funder and ventured back out into the broker world. The move was not a good one and at the time a feeling of despair left me searching for another job. Looking all over the place and getting absolutely no where, I contacted New Leaf Search who took the time to understand my professional and personal needs. Within weeks of initial contact, I had two great opportunities on the go, one of which turned out to be my new job."

Internal Account Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The role was newly formed and didn't have a job spec as such (but this is at no fault to New Leaf Search of course). Nevertheless, Katherine went out of her way to speak with a current employee within the department to get detailed background and had a great knowledge of the employer already from previously recruiting into team. The standard interview questions which are sent prior to interviews are also extremely helpful! General recruitment into this particular employer seems to be notoriously difficult. But Katherine kept me updated constantly with what was happening, why it was happening in this way and what the next steps would be. She constantly remained a source of humour and support throughout the process. I'll always come back, time and again, to New Leaf Search - excellent service and I always recommend to colleagues. Great bunch of people who are very happy to help. "

Financial Solutions Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"From start to finish the attention to detail and understanding of what I was looking for was first class. Kept well informed. Supported throughout preparing for my interview and communication was spot on. Didn’t feel pressured or pushed and was given plenty of time to move at my own pace. Thanks guys."

Financial Solutions Manager

After a 6 year gap answering the phone with an enthusiastic "Hello <Forename>" passed the test with flying colours!

Business Development Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Katherine was always informative, listened to my questions and if she didn't know the answer, came back promptly with a reply. Even when you rang and couldn't speak with Katherine, you would get a time frame of when to expect her to call you back - which she always did. Does the simple things well and the hard things even better. Probably the best person I have dealt with at a recruitment company."

Public Sector & Corporate Sales Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I spoke to Jane a number of times and her friendly and professional manner was excellent.

I will highly recommend New Leaf Search to anyone looking for a role within asset finance."

Asset Finance Executive

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Where I come from, Recruiters have a poor reputation, so when I received an email from Jane initially, I was a little skeptical. However she has been absolutely wonderful.

Asset Management Administrator

Senior Credit Strategy Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The service I have received from start to finish has been nothing short of amazing. I found myself in a difficult situation after being made redundant and Jane at New Leaf Search showed genuine interest in helping me find a solution. She took the time required to find out about me and my background and put the effort into finding a role to suit me and my needs. The very first role suggested resulted in employment! I would gladly recommend both Jane and New Leaf Search to any friends or colleagues searching for alternative employment options and I will certainly use again in the future."

Internal Sales Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"After spending almost 12 years in my role it was a difficult decision and process for me to engage elsewhere, regardless of the opportunity being provided and with me being keen to do so. Jane and Katherine eased me through the process; were incredibly engaging and patient and took the time to settle any concerns I had to make me feel 100% confident in the decision and with the right new employer. Excellent."

Regional Operations Contract Specialist

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Frustrated with the status quo I decided a career change was needed. Numerous agencies, roles and job descriptions later I was no further, however a year later out of the blue I received a phone call from Jane who's personal, friendly approach took me by surprise. She was genuinely interested in listening and understanding my experience I'd previously struggled to articulate and detail on a CV. I was unsure of my specific career aspirations and next steps to take, but Jane understood better than anyone what was best for me and began searching for appropriate roles. In no time at all she helped place me in a role, I would never have dreamt of even securing an interview for, let alone a job offer. In short, my career has been accelerated; I have a new role that will challenge me and I'm part of a new business I'll enjoy working for. None of this would have been possible without Jane & New Leaf Search. Unlike other companies, she didn't bother me with unfit opportunities, but only got in contact with those of genuine interest. She understood the company, hierarchy and the job role in its entirety. The job description was honest and not oversold (unlike other recruitment companies). Updates were frequent and any queries I had were answered by phone or email in a timely manner. I genuinely can't fault any part of the recruitment process. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending their services. Thanks for all your help!"

Sales Finance Manager, Vehicle Division

It is very refreshing to deal with a recruitment agency that understands your needs and doesn’t treat you like a number. I was successful in my interviews, thanks to Katherine's help and support; keep up your amazing work."

Business Development Manager, Broker - International Corporate Finance Organisation

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Amazing and very professional! Keep up the good work :)"

Inside Sales Executive

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Financial Solutions Manager, Germany

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I would just like to say thank you to the team at New Leaf Search who helped place me in my current role. I found them very professional and extremely helpful in providing me with all the information needed for my interviews and they always kept me informed during each part of the process."

Area Sales Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Thank you for a very efficient and attentive service. I was fortunate to find a perfect job in a perfect location with the help of New Leaf Search. I really appreciated the updates and follow up during the rather lengthy recruitment process. Definitely the best experience I have ever had with a recruitment agency!”​

Regional Finance Specialist, France

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​​“From a candidate's perspective, a recruitment specialist should have a thorough understanding of the skills needed in a sector; extensive contacts within that sector, and sufficient knowledge of the recruiters' environment to ensure a good fit of both experience & culture between candidate and employer. By offering me a number of openings and helping me to select the best, New Leaf Search have demonstrated they possess all these essential qualities."

Consultant

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​​“Through their connections throughout the Financial Services Sector, New Leaf Search act as an extremely effective conduit to match employer and employee.”

Regional Director

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​“I was really impressed by the professionalism and the attention that was given me in the whole recruitment process. I believe that New Leaf Search has shown their worthiness as an international recruitment company that can be relied on."

Country Sales Manager, Denmark

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​“For me working with the recruitment agency based outside of my home country was first in a life experience. The way how the communication between my prospective employer and me was built by the agency is 100% professional and positive. I am totally satisfied with the process and results of the recruitment process. Will definitely recommend the agency to others.”

Country Sales Manager, Russia/CIS - Global Captive Finance Organisation

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​“The 3 things I like about New Leaf Search: They keep you updated with the status of the recruitment process; they call you on a frequent basis even if there is no progress yet. They are straightforward and trustworthy; you feel comfortable and may rely on them; they will call you when promised which makes you feel secure. They have a great sense of humour - this helps a lot as changing jobs is very stressful with a great deal of uncertainty about the future. All this makes New Leaf Search a recruitment specialist like no other. They’re the best incarnation I know of the famous concept differentiate or die."

Programme Manager, Poland

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“When looking for a position I contacted dozens of agencies, and after a few weeks had selected a handful that I felt gave me a realistic chance of getting the kind of position I was looking for in a 'buyers' market. Most agents are content to fill in the blanks, matching skill sets on a CV with requirements on a Job Spec. I needed a more personal approach, someone who took the trouble to get to know me and what I was looking for, to represent me to the market and to build a solution rather than fit a square peg in a round hole. The job I finally was offered and accepted has more than met my expectations. That is 'value-add' and I would recommend New Leaf Search to anyone else who feels that they are more than just one of the sheep.”

Regional Sales Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​“The team at New Leaf Search adopted a realistic and imaginative approach to helping me secure my new role, against the backdrop of uncertainty in the financial markets. By giving real thought to my qualities and the culture of my new employer, they helped me to visualise the fit between us. As a result, I have found a challenging and exciting new role that I wouldn't have identified without New Leaf Search's depth of contacts and their talent for bringing together the right people. A 'win/win' for all involved in the process."

Business Development Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​“I have been successfully placed by New Leaf Search on two separate occasions now and what strikes me the most is their high level of integrity. On each occasion I was closely matched to one or perhaps two vacancies based on my skills, experience and expressed employment aspirations. On each occasion I was eventually offered the role by each client that I attended interview with. Throughout the hiring process I found them to be highly personable, responsive and communicative and they helped me to get through the various client specific issues with ease and without strain. If I were to look for a new career opportunity in the future then I would start my search with what I consider to be the leasing industry’s premier and professional agency, which is New Leaf Search. I sincerely recommend them and believe that they would operate on both sides of the client/candidate spectrum with the same high level of professional conduct that anyone should expect."

"I found New Leaf Search to be one of the most professional recruitment consultancies I have ever dealt with. They kept me well informed during the course of my application and their service never included the typical job agency issues of late notice interviews etc. They ensured their client came first and worked with them to get the job they desired.

"I had been out of the Asset Finance market for almost eight years. Just before Christmas, I decided that I would like to make a return. I found the New Leaf Search website and forwarded my CV. On that same day I received a callback from the consultant to arrange a meeting to discuss my experience and any suitable opportunities. Within a few days of this meeting, a first interview had been arranged for a role we agreed I’d be most suitable for. The interview went well and I was progressed to second interview stage. Within a couple of days thereafter, I secured a job offer! So in less than two weeks, thanks to New Leaf Search, my fortunes changed from having limited options to securing an excellent position with a progressive employer. I can't thank the team enough for their help and support in what turned out to be an excellent Christmas present!"

"Recruitment agencies are often a much maligned species and when you find one that really goes all out to make you feel special then I believe that praise is due. I had the good fortune to work with New Leaf Search and found both the consultant and the agency to be a committed team who assisted me in every step of the way in achieving the role I now hold. I would gladly recommend them to anyone who intends looking for a position and is looking for professionalism and a sense of ‘caring’ for you as a candidate.”

Immediately after my first call to them I got a positive and professional impression. During the weeks following our first contact the service was simply superb. Calling back ASAP, mailing, providing me with all the needed information. What a relief to work with New Leaf Search… Within 2 months, they found me the best next step I could take in my career. With thanks to New Leaf Search I now have a challenge I really am looking forward to. I will keep on using New Leaf Search for future opportunities for sure."

I had never thought that such a good job could be done despite the geographical distance and “business-cultural” differences between the UK and Spain. From the very beginning, my career needs were understood perfectly, and based on my profile, various very interesting opportunities were presented to me. The team was very professional and kept me and the hiring company perfectly and punctually informed. At the very end their participation was crucial for closing the negotiations in the best possible way. I will undoubtedly refer New Leaf Search to colleagues and would not hesitate to contact them again whenever and wherever I require further advice to progress and develop my professional career. Gracias!"

"After my initial call I always felt that New Leaf Search not only set up interviews but they always provided me with exceptional support and advice throughout what can be a very stressful time. Their knowledge of the industry and market are invaluable and ensure that the opportunities that they discussed with me were completely relevant to my experience and expectation. They fully understood my reasons for looking for a new challenge and because of this they were able to match me with the ‘perfect’ opportunity that I was looking for."

Their thoroughness in both understanding my needs and also understanding the job role they are putting me up for has meant that I have always had a very easy time when looking for or moving to a new job.

Senior Credit Analyst

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​"I have been working with New Leaf Search during the past couple of month as I look to return to a senior leadership position in the UK leasing market following 8 years working in the USA. I have found the consultants to be a 'breath of fresh air' in the leasing recruitment space and have been particularly impressed with their market knowledge and network of contacts. I am working exclusively with them and am very confident of a positive outcome to UK return."

Vice President, USA

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​"New Leaf Search successfully placed me in a senior position with a global captive within 10 weeks of our first discussion. They took the time to really understand all of my personal career needs and I was impressed in their ability to quickly penetrate the target clients. My advice to other candidates would be to choose only one recruitment agency to work with and make it New Leaf Search."

Group Manager, EMEA

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​"New Leaf Search has a wealth of contacts within the finance industry, built up over many years, and has worked hard at building a strong reputation amongst both candidates and hirers. Their approach is professional, and consultative, yet friendly - they don't waste people's time by putting forward unsuitable candidates, and they genuinely take the time to find out your strengths and types of opportunities that may suit you - rather than just put you forward in the hope you'll earn them a commission. I would unhesitatingly recommend them both to Candidates looking for a move, or for Employers looking for a pool of suitable people to interview."

International Business Development Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I have enjoyed a great relationship with New Leaf Search over the past 3 years. In that time, I have found them to be very professional and their knowledge of the finance market is excellent. Most importantly they focus on developing a long term relationship with both the clients and candidates they work with. This means that they take the time to understand the position I am looking for and find the right fit every time. I highly recommend New Leaf Search to both prospective clients and candidates. You won’t be disappointed."

Sales Account Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​"New Leaf Search has placed me twice now and on both occasions has been very professional, efficient and always listened to what I wanted. All opportunities that were presented to me were well matched to my criteria and I was never in that awkward situation where you can sometimes feel pressurised into going for an interview that perhaps you wouldn't particularly be interested in. New Leaf Search works in your best interests and always call you back when they say they are going to! I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new career within the finance industry."

​Internal Account Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The Consultants at New Leaf Search strive to best match a role to the candidate's requirements. With some agencies I've spoken to in the past there is a tendency to put forward jobs without much thought as to the fit with the client's experience and aspirations which can lead to a number of pointless and somewhat disheartening interview or application processes. What most impressed me about New Leaf Search was how they asked me about my previous experience but more importantly what I wanted out of my career and found what I consider to be the perfect match the first time of asking. I would (and indeed have) happily recommend New Leaf Search to my friends and colleagues who wish to pursue or progress their career in the finance industry."

Credit Manager

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​"I was very pleased with my contact with the New Leaf Search team when I was recruited to an executive-level position with a multi-national asset-based finance company several years ago. Since then, I appreciate the team's industry insight and use them for recruiting purposes myself."

​Commercial Director

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"New Leaf Search was instrumental in landing an Asset Management role for me with a leading equipment lessor in London. I found New Leaf Search to be incredibly efficient and supportive. They made what could have been a very stressful process relatively painless and I'm now looking forward to the next phase of my career with great enthusiasm. I'm extremely grateful to the team and would wholeheartedly recommend them to others."

Head of Asset Management

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

​"I dealt with New Leaf Search over a period of 9 months. During this time I was very impressed in the consultant’s knowledge of the industry and more specifically their knowledge of the specific sector they were recruiting for. Throughout the 'New Leaf Search' experience the consultant worked hard, always delivered what was promised and tried to give a balanced view to assist my final decision. I never once doubted the information offered to me and felt they would always go that extra mile to ensure both their client and I received a quality service. New Leaf Search is, in my opinion, the No 1 independent finance recruiter in the UK - by far."

​Director

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"New Leaf Search was exclusively involved in completing my current career move. I was delighted when they made me aware of the open position. I was coached by them during each step of the interview and hiring process so I always was well-prepared at each hurdle. In the end, I have a highly challenging and rewarding position and I am thankful to New Leaf Search for all their support in getting me here."

​EMEA Operations Director, Netherlands

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Operations Manager, Netherlands

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"I have had dealings with New Leaf Search over several years now and have found them to be extremely insightful and efficient. They ensure that they are not only well versed with their candidate’s capabilities but they also understand their clients’ requirements and in particular the nuances of the client’s business to ensure that they get the right match for both parties. This fact alone ensures that when New Leaf Search approach you as a potential candidate to discuss a role, you can be confident that a) they have undertaken the appropriate steps to ensure you can perform the role effectively b) you are the right cultural fit for the client c) they have taken your current circumstances into consideration (i.e. location, home life, salary range) so as not to set false expectations. I was recently placed into my current role by them and can only say that the support, guidance and practical approach given was greatly appreciated in what can be a very stressful time. I particularly like the fact that they check in with me every now and then to see how I am getting on. New Leaf Search without doubt will be my first call in the future as and when I need to recruit staff or look to further my own career." ​

EMEA Operations Manager
