We’re Changing the Way Recruitment Works


(updated 27th Mar 2019)

1 Our Company Ethos

1.1 At NewlyQualified, we strive to deliver a refreshingly simple approach to recruitment. We do not work alongside other recruitment companies; we do not accept premiums for sponsored job adverts, and we will never subsequently head hunt the candidates we place.

1.2 If you do not find your successful candidate(s) through us, you do not pay us anything. All our customers are treated on an equitable basis and we welcome feedback on our services whether good, bad or indifferent.

1.3 Our customers do have to understand our terms of business however and we do have to abide by the law. We have therefore summarised our Terms of business and our Privacy Policy below so that you can quickly and easily understand how we operate. Below is a full set of out Terms.
