The Country Food Trust urgently needed to recruit an experienced person to join our expanding team and we turned to Bold New World to help. Being a growing charity, it was important that our new recruit fit our culture quickly, had a real can-do attitude and understood hard work. Katharine Landale took time to understand our brief and undertook the task in a thoroughly professional manner. Katharine was efficient, discrete, positive and added a good dose of humour to the recruitment process. The result was we were introduced to an exceptional candidate whom we hired within a week. Katharine is an absolute pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate in recommending BNW”. 

Tim Woodward, Chief Executive - THE COUNTRY FOOD TRUST

As Sparrow Garden Design grew, we needed someone to take over the back office and day to day detailed running of the company quickly – they needed to be efficient, friendly and able to use their initiative. We approached Bold New World and, very quickly, they found the perfect candidate. Having previously worked seven days a week and on call 24 hours a day, she and was now looking for a less demanding schedule but with an exciting new business – luckily for us she decided to join us and has used her efficiency to transform and streamline the office and accounting systems.

The perfect candidate for us was someone returning to work who was happy to work a few days a week – ideally with a bit of flexibility as to which days. She fitted the bill perfectly with her confidence and natural way with people. We would not hesitate to recommend Bold New World.
