About Us

Newport Williams is a modern staffing agency that prides itself on using an old-school approach to recruitment. While HR and internal recruitment have their place within organizations, they often lack access to the “hidden candidate” market that we tap into. Our strength lies in our relentless pursuit of top talent, leaving no stone unturned in our searches.

Our Approach

At Newport Williams, we believe that the best candidates are often not actively looking for new opportunities. By constantly scouring the market, networking, and building genuine relationships, we uncover those exceptional candidates who are already excelling in their careers. Our method involves quiet, confidential conversations with these professionals, understanding their career aspirations, and matching them with the right opportunities.

Our Commitment

We are dedicated to delivering candidates who are already firing on all cylinders – the type of professionals who don’t need to apply for jobs because they are sought after in their fields. Our clients benefit from our deep market insights and our ability to present candidates who perfectly align with their needs and organizational culture.

Why Choose Us?

Our Mission

Our mission is to bridge the gap between exceptional talent and the organizations that need them. We strive to create meaningful and lasting connections that drive success for both our clients and candidates.
