Customer testimonials

quote We have been using New Scientist for our recruitment advertising for over twenty years and it has always been our number one source of high quality and relevant applicants. Our recruits require a unique mix of skills - academic excellence, science and software development - and we can rely on New Scientist to consistently reach this audience every time we advertise with them, both in print and online. quote
- Neil Barrett, Recruitment and HR, Tessella plc.
quote We started using New Scientist online recruitment advertising in spring 2011. During this time we have had a huge response for the majority of our adverts and found some excellent candidates. We will continue to use New Scientist for our recruitment needs going forward as we are very happy with the standard of service and level of candidates coming through. quote
- Jade Kerri-Dibb, Facilities / HR, Horizon Discovery Ltd
quote We were really impressed with quality of applications received from New Scientist.  We were recruiting to a specialist role, and were impressed with New Scientists’ ability to determine our requirements, and advise on the best package.  The advert was uploaded quickly, and I was impressed with the data provided afterwards which showed how many views the advert had, and how many of these followed through with an application. quote
- Mona Chergui, Human Resources Officer, Marine Stewardship Council
quote We have been using New Scientist Jobs since 2006 and always receive a great response from their advertising. Our recent vacancy received 50 applications and we have been able to take 4 applicants through to interview stage. We are confident that New Scientist Jobs are able to attract high quality and relevant candidates to our roles and we will continue to advertise our vacancies with them. quote
- Brian Stockton, Sirius Analytical Instruments
quote We purchased a full page adpack for a number of roles we were recruiting for. With a mixture of print and online advertising, it gave us a number of relevant candidates that we could take through to the interview stage. The team also went beyond what was offered and are helping us to recruit for some US-based roles. We have been impressed with the quality and calibre of applicants and would recommend New Scientist Jobs for your next science vacancy. quote
- Garry Thompson, HR Business Partner, Leica Biosystems
quote We advertised our first vacancy with New Scientist Jobs this year and received a high number of applications leading to one candidate being offered and taking up the position. As they are dedicated to the science industry, New Scientist Jobs are well placed to find the high quality and relevant applicants we are looking for rather than reviewing a number of candidates that don’t meet our criteria. quote
- David Hills, Scientific Director, Eclipse Business Media
quote We have had a great response from very well qualified applicants which is a testament to the fact that NS jobs.com is the primary source for talented scientists. Our most recent vacancy received 105 applications and the e-newsletter doubled the response we’d received prior to send, so really enhancing our recruitment campaign. Our advertising enabled us to take 8 applicants through to interview stage which was a great success. quote
- Simon Colah, Head of Perfusion Education, Cambridge Perfusion Services
quote After previously taking basic job listings, we were encouraged to take a more cost effective package that included extra inventory and branding on the jobsite that could potentially give us more exposure and applications. I am pleased to say we received an excellent response, and as a result had a successful recruitment campaign. quote
- Jane Rattray, Nucleus Central
quote The response has been remarkable, we received over 100 replies and most applicants had relevant experience and qualifications for what we were looking for. I have used New Scientist in the past, and this experience again has made them the only place to go for recruitment advertising. quote
- Kevin Moulder Ph.D, Chief Scientific Officer and Executive Director, Biosceptre International
