In today’s ever-changing environment, it seems that nothing is certain. One thing that I have witnessed through my six years recruiting top-quality candidates for suitable positions is an increased reluctance of junior candidates to consider planning positions as a long-term viable career option.

What our Clients and Candidates say about us
"Westminster Search does not waste time with marginal candidates: those who reach your attention are all people you would want to hire; the challenge becomes which one to choose."
"Joseph found me the perfect job instantly! He immediately understood the kind of profile the company was looking for and they had been looking for a while before they asked Westminster Search to help. He put forward my candidature and spontaneously offered support throughout the recruitment process. Joe genuinely cares about the people he is working with and know that finding the right job and/or the right person for the role can be a life changing experience.
I couldn’t recommend Westminster Search highly enough."
"Westminster Search is easy to use and most importantly, Joseph is fantastic. He knows what type of jobs would suit you and provides amazing support, from the start of the process right through to the end (and beyond)!
Not only did Joseph help me to find a brilliant job, but he sent me supportive messages before my first day and within the first week. It's made what can be a really stressful process really simple and easy"
"Joseph Henry was extremely supportive and helpful when we worked together. The role was Head of Policy and Campaigns at Prostate Cancer UK, which I was successful in acquiring. He not only helped keep me in loop with developments (when I had got down to the last two), but also offered advice as the best way to 'get me over the finish line'. He was also very helpful in chasing up the organisation after I had sent them my references to be processed.
Joseph clearly knows his stuff, both recruitment and the areas to which he is recruiting, and was a great help throughout."
" Personally speaking, I found Joseph Henry to be a very efficient and effective consultant when I recently recruited a Public Affairs Officer for Scope. Joseph was able to provide high calibre candidates at very short notice. He stayed in close contact throughout the process, and was always helpful. His services were also good value for money. "
"Joseph adopts a highly professional approach and has a considerable knowledge of the public affairs world. He was always ‘on hand’ and his guidance was hugely important to me from start to finish of the application process; I would strongly recommend his services."
"Joseph helped me obtain my current role. He was very helpful with giving me advice about the company, interview tips, as well as passing on information very quickly after each stage. I would recommend his assistance when looking for a new role as he knows the field, as well as the companies well. Thank you very much for you help!"
"Joe is a highly professional, insightful and approachable recruitment specialist whose guidance was crucial in helping me further my career in public affairs. Having Joe’s expertise whilst I was searching for a new role was a valuable competitive advantage throughout the application process. I would thoroughly recommend contacting Joe if you are looking for your next challenge in public affairs"
