I had graduated for some time and I was finding it impossible to break into an Engineering environment – due to lack of workplace experience and appropriate prepping from university. Mike and Joan contacted me, as they had an internal role which they felt was a good match.  From the outset, they coached me, prepped me for the interview, and ensured I was primed with all the necessary Company / role information. Joan kept in touch with me via e-mail and telephone and she praised me and boost my confidence. Not only were they great at prepping me, they were responsible for a sudden boost of confidence in myself and that played a crucial part in the interview.

I was delighted to be offered the opportunity of Internal Sales and believe this is my absolute springboard to a successful career.

I would highly recommend Norton Bowers as a professional, quality recruitment company.

I’ve worked with Mike for over 15 years as both a Candidate, when looking for new opportunities myself, and Employer to help source new Staff;   My experiences have all been positive and we work well together.  Mike has good  understanding of  the C&I  industry, great networks and I have every faith that he will find me the right person for the role each time.

Good Morning Mike,

Firstly I want to say what a great set of candidates you put forward Mike, to be honest it was a difficult decision to whittle it down from 4 to 3 and yesterdays task was even harder to come up with a decision.

Once again Thank you for providing us we a great set of candidates.

Going forward I will be coming to NortonBowers.

Mike C, General Manager


I was approached by Mike regarding a position Norton Bowers were head hunting for. The role interested me greatly as I had wanted to get into this line of work for a while. Mike and I agreed to meet in the first instance to ensure that my skills abilities and attitude would be a correct match for the job. Mike was informative about the job discussed the company culture and gave me an understanding of the target driven environment that I was about to join, if successful at final interview. Mike helped me throughout the process and I was fortunate to get the job. I would highly recommend Norton bowers to any of my friends who wish the further their career.

Calum, Key Account Manager

“During my sales career, I’ve had the good fortune to be put forward for a number of  selective opportunities by Norton Bowers.

Over the years, both Mike and Jenny have been very supportive in helping me to achieve my aspirations.

When I made the move into Sales Management and began searching for my own salespeople, NB were the natural place to start.

I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for the right candidate, with the right qualifications and experience”.

Peter, UK Sales Manager


We have engaged with Mike and Jennie on many occasions to help with our recruitment requirements and I can highly recommend them.  We always receive a prompt, professional and friendly service with good quality candidates.

Louise, People and Culture Manager


Mike has placed me on two separate occasions, both very successfully. His attention to detail and friendliness means that when he finds a job he thinks is suitable then it will be the job you want. He make sure to go through all the details with you describing the pros and cons of the role and why he thinks it would be a fit for you. He then makes sure your prepared for the interview and always follows up the interview with feedback.

Dave, Product Manager 

I would just like to say a huge thank you to you for your help and support.

Mike provided invaluable information and advice in preparation for the interview, and was proactive in keeping me updated during an unavoidable delay in the final verdict from the employer. His professionalism is a credit to the company, and I would not hesitate in recommending Norton Bowers to anyone who are seeking employment in the industry.

Again, thank you Mike for your time regarding my job hunting process – you have been the most proactive agency that I have been speaking with during my search.

Ross, Office Manager


Gambica has worked with Norton Bowers on several occasions over the past eight years in successfully recruited five excellent new employees all of whom are still working for the Association and have proved to be excellent fits.

Mike and Jennie took the trouble to listen to our requirements and to get to know the Association.  Consequently shortlisted candidates have all been well suited and eventual selection has been a relatively easy process of selecting the best from an excellent field.  I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for staff.

Graeme, CEO


I would like to thank you both for the help and support you gave me during my job seeking period.

I would also like to add that Norton Bowers proved to be one of the most professional and proactive recruitment companies I dealt with and I would have no problem in recommending you to others seeking employment or to companies seeking staff.

PB,Strategic Business Manager


I’m so grateful for all the work you have put in on my behalf. I really do appreciate everything you’ve done. The fact that you were always beavering away in the background supported me and kept me focused during my job search. When I come across good people looking for something else I’ll let them know where to find the “Top Team”.

DG, Export Sales Manager,


Well its Monday 14th June and the start of the next journey in my career. I am really looking forward to commencing work.  A very big thank you for all your good efforts in lobbying the company on my behalf. It was much appreciated.

Norgren used the services of Norton Bowers in the appointment of an important senior General Management position. During the process, Jennie Norton provided a very professional and no-nonsense approach to the brief.
