Nick Hornby, Managing Partner - CERNO CAPITAL

Successful Bold New World Candidate

"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

"We posted a position on Bold New World for a brand ambassador in October 2019.  As a result we are now successfully working with a freelance brand ambassador who comes with 20 years’ experience in the footwear industry and is a great help to us expanding our distribution networks and growing the brand. She now represents us in Buckinghamshire, Sussex and Bedfordshire.  Thank-you for your help."

Lucy, Director - TALOLO BOOTS

"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."

Sparrow Morgan-Grenville, Founder - SPARROW GARDEN DESIGN

"Bold New World makes a daunting task very straightforward. We were delighted with the applicants and would not hesitate to recommend Bold New World.”
