Client reviews

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

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

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

"Jane provided an excellent service. We were looking for a very niche candidate in a niche market and Jane has fulfilled both of those briefs. Jane has a great knowledge of the market; thinks outside of the usual candidates for us and has twice found an excellent candidate. She has a good understanding of what we do and is always very responsive. Very grateful and look forward to working with you again."

Commercial Director

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

"We had to quickly fill a specialist role and were not confident we could find someone with all the relevant skills and experience we needed. Jane at New Leaf Search came up with a few excellent candidates and we were able to secure someone very quickly and within the required deadline. We will certainly be using New Leaf Search again..."

Head of Receivables & Block

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

"Candidates are presented with accuracy, honesty and information broader than just the requirements to perform the role. Vacant job opportunities are approached with the intent to understand not only the skills required, but the team fit and the career journey. Market insight is always offered and discretion is guaranteed. Jane and Katherine genuinely care about making a placement that feels right for the candidate and right for the company. That is why we enjoy partnering with them".

Head of HR

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

"This has been a remarkably efficient recruitment experience, given it related to a very specialist requirement. New Leaf Search managed to land the ideal candidate first time. That candidate has smoothly progressed to acceptance of a contract of employment, despite needing to navigate the challenges of recruiting in a Covid-19 business environment."

Sales Director

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

"Katherine is always a joy to deal with! She also takes the time to get to know the vacancy and even helps with providing market salary info. Thanks for your help"

Senior Talent Acquisition Partner

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

"New Leaf Search understand our company culture and our business needs which means they recommend candidates suitable for the roles that we are recruiting for and save us time and effort. In addition, they never 'push' unsuitable candidates which is a real bugbear of mine"

Sales Director

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

"Service for me is very important. Katherine's attention to my business and the needs of my team / new hires is exemplary... Regular reviews are productive, the outcomes are always effective... Quality of CVs is always high... Industry-leading... NLS has proven, time and time again, to be an essential part of my recruitment strategy. Quality and attention to market changes is important to me and the make-up of my team. I would happily recommend NLS to anyone looking for the highest quality personnel in the industry. Thank you!"

Director

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

"Very impressed with the calibre of candidates and the speed of finding the right candidates with relevant skills... Very satisfied."

EMEA Talent Acquisition Consultant

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

"New Leaf Search were always responsive to all my calls and very proactive in thinking outside of the box when providing candidate details for my role... they have a very good understanding of our businesses, culture and values... It was no surprise to be able to offer my recent role to an NLS candidate. Thank you!"

Director

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

"New Leaf Search has great connections in the asset finance industry and really understand the various roles we're recruiting for. The communication has been excellent throughout and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others. Overall - excellent!!"

Head of Asset Finance

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

"As always; competent, honest and very timely... guidance given in the past and present has always been relevant and spot-on... Having used NLS as someone looking for a position and as someone looking to fill a position, I can testify to their professionalism, knowledge of market and efforts undertaken to understand the requirements and suitability of both the candidate and the hiring company. I can fully recommend NLS to job seekers and employers alike."

Head of Risk

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

"Jane always communicated at every step of the process, the candidates were all not only relevant for the role but of an extremely high standard"

Internal Recruiter

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

"I am so pleased with Jane's service. Always mention it to my colleagues. It is refreshing to have a knowledgeable recruiter who is honest with candidates and keeps us informed. Thank you Jane."

Internal Recruiter

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

"New Leaf Search provided an outstanding service for our international recruitment. When we hit a potential roadblock they went the extra mile to resolve the problem very professionally and we successfully landed our candidate. They took the time to engage with us thoroughly before we started and the manner and frequency in which they kept us informed and updated throughout the process is one of the things that sets them apart from the rest of the recruitment market. A pleasure to do business with."

Vendor Relationship Director

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

"For me, New Leaf are the best recruitment firm in the asset finance industry. I'm fortunate to have built up an excellent relationship with Jane over the years, where I feel there is complete trust, openness and a willingness to find the right candidate for each role I recruit for."

Head of Asset Management

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

"I have worked with New Leaf Search for a number of years now and have always been completely happy with the service levels provided."

Chief Commercial Officer

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

"Thank you Jane for your quick responses and help.... Overall, everything was delivered with a very high level of quality"

HR Manager

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

"Having never recruited in this sector before I needed a recruitment agent that was an expert in this area - Katherine was very helpful and her knowledge reassured me that she had a fantastic insight of the market and an excellent command of what we were looking for..."

HR Manager

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

"Everything worked really well. We were frequently updated and any further information we required was provided. It was a pleasure dealing with Jane at New Leaf Search. She understood exactly what we were looking for and did what she could to ensure it was filled with the most appropriate candidate. Thank you for your help."

Resourcing Team Leader

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

"I particularly liked the fact that you have invested time in coming to see us at our new offices and understanding our set up and requirements in terms of business development and needs in human resources. Thank you for introducing some very strong, experienced and ambitious candidates to us."

Head of Vendor Sales

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

"Engagement was prompt, efficient, professional and always with a smile .... A clear understanding was sought from the outset of the search... CVs were excellent, candidates very suitable for the vacant roles... Always prompt and delivered as per arrangements made. NLS always provide the level of service and professionalism I expect from an organisation that represents the name, spirit and culture of my company. Service is first class and attention to detail is second to none - excellent work, well done and THANK YOU!"

Director

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

"... good candidates introduced and followed up during the onboarding process. Looking forward to meeting over the next few weeks to further understand how we can partner well together."

Recruitment Business Partner

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

"Keep doing what you're doing; no changes required. Unfortunately, the recruitment sector is saturated with agencies and hence there is some frustration as a growing company with too many calls coming in from all sorts of people. New Leaf Search have grasped that I am directing all enquiries through our HR director whereas many other agencies think side-stepping into the line managers will help the cause....it will not. Well played NLS."

CEO

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

"In the grand pantheon of leasing recruitment companies you rank very highly and I would suggest you continue to do what you do and leverage the relationships you obviously have in the sector as you currently do."

Head Of Sales

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

"New Leaf Search once more delivered at the highest standards to fill our open hiring needs. They, and especially Jane, fully understand our hiring needs and, most importantly, delivers on those specific needs. I cannot think of any enhancements to their current services since our needs were met and in full."

Senior Director, Operations, EMEA

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

"We worked closely with Katherine and the team to identify the right candidate for an important role in Germany. She delivered a very high quality of service, she is very customer-oriented, the candidates she proposed were of high quality - I would use NLS again and can recommend to others to work with them."

Head of Sales Finance, Germany

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

"In summary, I found the entire recruitment process through New Leaf Search to be seamless - extremely professional, prompt & thoroughly reliable. They took time to understand my needs in detail (beyond the scope of a job specification) and followed up with me on an ongoing basis throughout the process. They secured a 100% placement rate with me on the vacancies I had available and I am certain that if further senior vacancies were to arise within my team, New Leaf Search would, without doubt, be the first call I would make!"

European Programmes Manager Originations

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

​"We have been very pleased with the service from New Leaf Search to support our European sales recruitment. The close attention to understand our industry and our expansion requirements (including the inevitable changes to the original brief) were very well received. They kept us well informed on all progress and the follow-up processes continue long after the successful recruitment has been achieved, this sets them apart from the competition."

European Credit and Risk Director

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

​"We have known New Leaf Search since its inception and have been extremely pleased with the very high standard of professional service received. It was so refreshing to talk to people who understood our requirements and who made sure the candidates introduced to us were not only highly skilled and experienced people in the areas specified but whose personalities would match those of our existing staff. We are a small dedicated team offering a personal service to our customers, making it imperative that all new employees meet these criteria. We would definitely use their services again in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending them to like-minded organisations requiring a very professional and personalised service."

"There are several things that have impressed me about New Leaf Search; consistently high service levels, understanding how our organisation operates and of course, delivering results – with successful assignments completed in France and Germany. It’s a breath of fresh air to deal with an agency that takes the fundamentals of client service and operational excellence so seriously and I applaud them for obtaining ISO 9001 accreditation."

"In my dealings with New Leaf Search, I have always found them to be a most helpful and trustworthy company to work with. Their understanding and professional knowledge of the finance industry is to be complimented and the company has very high standards which have always been maintained in my dealings with them. In my role, both personally, and as a Credit Manager with my last two companies, I have always used New Leaf Search to fulfil my own career aspirations and also to fill any vacant positions, knowing that I will receive the highest recruitment standards and be provided with top-quality candidates that have specifically been chosen to satisfy roles I have advertised."

Credit Manager, UK and Ireland

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

​"Prior to dealing with New Leaf Search Limited my opinion of recruitment agents was that the best was similar to a sleepy civil servant & the worst were on a par with Estate Agents! New Leaf Search has mastered the art of being sales-focused but without feeling the need to cross over the line. Having recently successfully filled two positions for us, I have no hesitation in recommending their services."

Regional Financing Manager

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

​"…since its formation, I have regularly instructed New Leaf Search to find candidates for our business. The consultancy is highly professional and responsive to our needs in finding quality candidates. Consequently, New Leaf Search has a deep understanding of our business needs."

Managing Director

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

​"New Leaf Search worked with us in sourcing a complete team to launch a brand new finance and leasing business. Right from the start, it was obvious that we had struck gold. They not only understood the sector very well but were adaptable and flexible enough to react very quickly to the inevitable challenges that one always encounters in building any new team. It was a real pleasure to work with them."
