I am Laura Hewett, Director at Hewett Recruitment. I joined the business initially as a specialist IT Recruitment Consultant to ‘cut my teeth’ in the recruitment industry, before moving into the Director role with additional responsibility for Executive Search & Selection.
My previous career was as a senior manager within a global video games publisher. This experience gave me a high level of commercial awareness as well as a true appreciation of the pressures and challenges of working within a PLC – helping me to really understand the larger clients we deal with at Hewett’s. Since joining Hewett Recruitment, I have been able to apply the best bits of the commercial big-business structure to help drive our business forward, while retaining the culture and values which are so beneficial as a small business.
I feel proud every day to be part of a business with so much integrity and a sense of ‘doing the right thing and doing it well’. I personally take responsibility to write to our clients and candidates each quarter to ask for feedback on the service we provide. I ask every candidate we put forward for every job, whether they are successful or not as I want to ensure that even if unsuccessful, candidates still feel they have received an excellent level of service from us.
Since 2016, I have been a Worcestershire Works Well board member – promoting a free accreditation scheme designed to support businesses to improve the health and well-being of their employees. I am passionate about employee engagement and strive to ensure that Hewett’s is a great place to work. I also regularly speak on the subject, offering advice to clients.
