EMPLOYERSAREWELL aware that they are only as strong as the qual­ity and cal­i­bre of their em­ploy­ees. And when can­di­dates are look­ing for a new job, they ap­pre­ci­ate a sym­pa­thetic ear, along with good prac­ti­cal guid­ance and, of course, a variety of new and ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. The direc­tors of New Leaf set up their com­pany with all this in mind. They aim to meet the re­quire­ments of both em­ployer and em­ployee and, while pro­vid­ing that lis­ten­ing ear, give their can­di­dates and clients all the time in the world to talk. New Leaf be­lieves that in­vest­ing time at the be­gin­ning to find out what makes peo­ple tick is the se­cret be­hind di­rect­ing each can­di­date into ex­actly the right role.

New Leaf recog­nises that ev­ery­one has dif­fer­ent needs at dif­fer­ent times of life. Some are look­ing for ad­di­tional in­come or are pur­su­ing a dream job. Some need to work in a small, car­ing en­vi­ron­ment; oth­ers rel­ish a faster­paced busi­ness. There are those who are cau­tiously re-en­ter­ing the job mar­ket; oth­ers are just start­ing their ca­reer. What­ever an in­di­vid­ual’s goals, New Leaf will lis­ten and hear and make it their job to find the right job.

Ruth Wag­ner, one of the direc­tors, ex­plains: “We send peo­ple only to va­can­cies that we re­ally feel suit their ex­pe­ri­ence, tem­per­a­ment and stated aims — we don’t be­lieve in send­ing our can­di­dates on wild goose, or job, chases!” All can­di­dates are fully in­ter­viewed by one of the three direc­tors.

New Leaf is able to of­fer an in­cred­i­bly wide range of can­di­dates to fill po­si­tions across the spec­trum, from the busi­ness world to ed­u­ca­tion and from the pro­fes­sions to the char­ity sec­tor.

Em­ploy­ers ben­e­fit from the same sup­port as job seek­ers. A New Leaf con­sul­tant will find out all about the com­pany’s re­quire­ments, in­clud­ing val­ues and ethos, so no time is wasted send­ing can­di­dates who won’t fit in.

New Leaf makes ev­ery at­tempt to get a suit­able can­di­date in front of a prospec­tive em­ployer as soon as pos­si­ble. An­drea Sil­ver­man says “Last week we in­ter­viewed a lady in the morn­ing and she was in a job by that af­ter­noon!”

New Leaf op­er­ates a “no place­ment no fee” pol­icy. The client can in­ter­view as many can­di­dates as they wish and pay noth­ing un­til the right per­son is found. Ad­di­tion­ally, the com­pany of­fers an at­trac­tive guar­an­tee pe­riod be­cause, de­spite best ef­forts, not all place­ments work out and it wants to re­im­burse clients with no fuss and help them move on to­wards find­ing the right one. Chananya Sil­ver­man, the third di­rec­tor, points out that “We’re def­i­nitely not in­ter­ested in notch­ing up points — we be­lieve in qual­ity not quan­tity and would rather send just one can­di­date who we feel is re­ally ap­pro­pri­ate than 10 who might not be.”

New Leaf keeps its rates com­pet­i­tive and rea­son­able. It also has a pol­icy of open­ness and eth­i­cal prac­tice. In­vest­ment man­ager Si­mon Be­nar­roch ap­pointed his PA through New Leaf. He was very sat­is­fied: “I was as thrilled by the warm and friendly ser­vice as I was by the num­ber of suit­able, high­cal­i­bre can­di­dates it promptly sent me. New Leaf’s in­tegrity and re­fresh­ingly hon­est approach con­trib­uted to an over­all pro­fes­sional and ex­tremely pleas­ant ex­pe­ri­ence.” An­drea adds: “The me­mory we’d like peo­ple to take away af­ter deal­ing with us, is that it was easy, ef­fi­cient and en­joy­able!” New Leaf is of­fer­ing em­ploy­ers 33 per cent dis­count on all va­can­cies reg­is­tered by April 30, 2008.
