Newsom Consulting has successfully placed over 500 talented industry professionals in leadership, senior management, and technical expert roles since its launch in 2010. Today, the London-based firm works regionally, nationally, and globally, helping businesses to source and secure top executive candidates.

Newsom Consulting offers four key services, which can be tailored to suit its clients’ needs.

Its executive search service helps businesses to find the right executive candidates for their teams.
Talent mapping helps them to understand the current market and establish what talent is available.
Leadership assessments provide a clear and objective picture of a leadership team’s current competencies and future potential.
Outplacement support provides colleagues with tools that will help them as they search for a new role and transition into their new career.

Newsom Consulting strives to deliver balanced, diverse long and shortlists, and is a proud sponsor of the Senior Women in or Formerly in Transport (SWiFT) group. Its inclusivity-focused approach has helped a range of rail organisations (including Crossrail, South Western Railway, and Network Rail) to build leadership teams as diverse as they are strong.
