Case Studies and Testimonials
As part of Thewlis Graham Associates’ commitment to professionalism and quality assurance, we conduct post-assignment audits. We employ an independent consultant to question both clients and candidates (both successful and unplaced) and give feedback on their experience with Thewlis Graham Associates. The responses to these questions help shape the way we work. We also ask on a scale of one to ten would you recommend Thewlis Graham Associates. It’s good to know that in the last 18 months everyone asked has indicated a score of 8 or above.
The service is great – they do everything you want a head hunter to do. They understand the organisation and sell it - we set timescales and kept to them, getting the process for working with them properly and got good value from them.
Thewlis Graham Associates provide an excellent service. They have good communication skills and build good relationships with clients ensuring we appoint good candidates.
I found the whole process to be thoroughly professional and felt I was treated with a great deal of respect throughout. I really enjoyed my interview with Sarah, which I found to be far more conversational than a standard competency-based interview. Which enabled me to get across my personality and suitability for the role.
Tracey Thompson was most helpful with my queries and responded promptly even outside of working hours. The feedback given from Sarah was most helpful. All members of Thewlis Graham I had contact with were helpful and polite and assisted me in working through what can be a stressful process.
Working with Sarah and Claire gave me real confidence to prepare and present myself in the best light possible.
What impressed me most was the time Sarah took to provide detailed, constructive and thoughtful personal feedback afterwards.
One of the best experiences with a search and selection agency I have ever had.
Very professional and engaging recruitment process - from pre-interview through to post-interview, this is the first time I can remember being asked by a recruiter for feedback of their recruitment process and was refreshing.
I had a fantastic experience from e mail correspondence with Claire to skype meetings with Sarah. Sarah is very professional and personable. She has great insight and provided me with guidance, advice and encouragement. Sarah is very professional and personable.

Excellent. Highly commendable.
Sarah and her team were excellent from start to finish and I am so pleased that we have the right person in Chambers to take forward. TGA clearly did their job to a really high level.
Very supportive, informative and empowering as they gave me confidence at every stage of the process to believe in my professional credibility and guided how to present myself in the right way, with tips to think about. I felt I had a personal connection with Sarah Thewlis – she thought about where I was in my career and where/how I could go forward. It wasn’t just a case of going for an interview – there was more to it than that.
Very professional. We compared TGA with another recruitment company as we wanted to be transparent (the easier option would have been to go straight to TGA as we had used them before). They were worlds apart as Sarah’s team were so professional, with a good and thorough timeline, excellent documentation and they were very reassuring and personable. It felt overall that the whole package was very professional - really good. It felt personal.
Really professional, responsive and relevant, in that I know what Sarah is about and she would be able to target candidates that we would like to see. Sometimes you can be served a curve ball but I don’t have any qualms to pick up the phone and know that Sarah can help – I trust her.
