Testimonials (11)

JWR has always delivered a very good service; they are accurate, articulate and pragmatic in their approach. I would have absolutely no hesitation in using them in the future.

Exec Chef, School Caterer

I have worked with JWR for over a year where they have successfully placed numerous candidates within our business. I have found that they are professional, courteous, personable and knowledgeable; which enables them to ensure they place candidates that fit within our business and service offer. I would have no hesitation in recommending JWR.

Operations Director, B&I and Schools Contract Caterer

I have utilized the professional resource of 'James Webber Recruitment' for over 10 years, always with success in finding and retaining the right candidate for the position. I find James's personal involvement to sourcing the right candidate to reach my requirements a huge time saver and a professional approach. I would not have any concerns with recommending James Webber recruitment to perspective employers or indeed to a candidate wishing to find the right role for their experiences, qualifications and ambitions. It is difficult to find a recruitment company that consistently delivers in a timely fashion with the right number of candidates for me to see for the role which I need.

Group Operations Manager, UK wide Hotel Chain

JWR are a preferred supplier for our hotel group - they were chosen to be a preferred supplier by our HR team throughout the UK as we have always received excellent service from them.

Candidates are always a good fit to the role and our organisation. We have found Simon in Salisbury and John in Birmingham always pay particular attention to making sure that they understand what we want and the background of the hotel.

They understand our culture and who fits and who doesn't which makes our lives so much easier.

We have recruited some excellent employees at all levels from JWR and I would have no hesitation in recommending them as one of the best recruitment agents that we use.

Group HR Manager, Top UK Hotel Chain

I have been using James Webber Recruitment for the last five years and I am completely satisfied with their service. They are a company that does take time to understand the vacancies through detailed conversations and briefings. This enables them to match closely our needs and to date I have been pleased with the quality of candidates they have supplied.
I personally deal with senior management appointments; however they are used across the hotel collection for head of department and junior staff. I have not had any negative feedback from our General Managers about the service or candidate quality.

This is a company I would recommend for your recruitment needs.

Group HR Director, Luxury Hotel Chain

JWR have provided an invaluable service to us over the past few years, helping us to fill a variety of key positions and management posts, in all areas of the business. The team at JWR have a strong relationship with our senior managers and always work with us to meet briefs and timelines, continuously providing quality and demonstrating a good understanding of our needs.

Hotel General Manager, Five Star Hotel

I have used James Webber Recruitment over a number of years and for the last 4 years as our principal recruitment agent for senior management and management roles.

What you want from a recruitment agent is someone who takes the time to visit your hotel properties and understands the different business models and therefore personnel needs. You then need that same person to use their market intelligence and contacts to seek out, pre-interview and recommend candidates that are (as best as can be judged) genuinely interested in your property, location and business model – and prepared to be open about how they might work with and adapt to the culture and existing team players.

John Nee is my personal contact at James Webber and he exemplifies the attributes referred to above. There have been very few occasions indeed over these last four years that John has not been able to find the right candidate for us.

When you add to this the key skills of intelligent and thoughtful insight, great communication skills and progress updates, you consider yourself to be in thoroughly professional hands.

Group General Manager, Hotel and Conference Group

Having not wished to trust all of our recruiting needs to one agency, we have for the past 6 years been utilising a number of different recruitment companies in order to attract the very best new talent into our growing company as well as ensure all of our eggs are not in the same basket!

We changed all of that and decided to partner with JWR on an exclusive basis a year ago, as the calibre, suitability and performance of the candidates we saw, interviewed, trade tested, grilled and ultimately appointed were head and shoulders above the rest on a consistent basis, and meant that there was little need within our busy schedules to deal with multiple agencies.

The Chefs that have joined us via our relationship with JWR continue to significantly add value reputation and profitability to my Company...I would recommend them to any likeminded company without hesitation.

Managing Director, B&I and Schools Contract Caterer

As one of our 1st Tier Agencies we have always found James Webber Recruitment to be professional in all aspects of their recruitment procedures and processes. We have had great results from this agency when filling critical management positions and are impressed with their efficiency and knowledge of the market in all areas of the UK. We would recommend James Webber to other Hospitality and Leisure businesses.

Human Resources and Development Manager, Global Hotel Chain

I have known James Webber in a professional capacity for more than 10 years and can safely say I find him to be a reliable and trustworthy individual who has assisted me on many occasions to source and place individuals in a timely and professional manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending James as a person and his company very highly.

Hotel General Manager, City Centre Hotel

We always call James Webber Recruitment first, before considering other agencies.
