Having spent over 10 years in corporate recruitment we grew frustrated with the impersonal, commodity, numbers-driven nature of modern-day recruitment. The foundation of recruitment has to be people.
Whether a candidate or a client, recruitment is about building a relationship with someone who understands you and your requirements and then honours those throughout the process.
Honesty and integrity go hand in hand with relationships and trust and we pride ourselves on being constructively honest in every communication with every client, whether looking to support recruitment or coach on your CV you will get our utmost attention and concentration to support you.
Andy is a genuine consultant and with his background and knowledge of the recruitment market, he is not afraid to challenge the process or our assumptions of the market.
Working with him has been great fun and I look forward to working with him again.
I can thoroughly recommend working with Andy.
Andy successfully represented me with a large financial services client. It's very refreshing to be represented by someone who clearly enjoys his role and is prepared to go the extra mile to ensure an extremely professional service.
Andy's support with my CV and interview prep enabled me to get the role and I would have no hesitation in recommending Andy.
Excellent work Andy
I am delighted to be able to endorse Andy Wilkinson with whom I have worked on a number of assignments as both a candidate and as a recruiter since 2009. Working with me as a candidate, Andy facilitated the process of interview, feedback and contract negotiation with professionalism and integrity.
I was equally impressed with Andy as a recruitment service provider. He takes the time to understand requirements and presents an excellent shortlist of candidates, well-briefed and prepared for interview.
Andy has been instrumental to my career journey and blossoming into the professional I have become over the past few months. When I’ve started my collaboration with him I had firm beliefs on what I wanted to show in my CV and profile. He's coached and developed me to see different angles of my career, made me see my experience through different eyes, pushed me where I needed to be pushed and overcome my boundaries.
His coaching style has helped me to develop a professional CV, much more reflecting my job market value and selling me to the potential employers. I have seen almost an instant result with responses to my job applications and unsolicited contacts from head hunters growing exponentially.
The result is obvious – I have now started my dream job in consulting!
Thought you might like a quick update as to the job/CV........
I wasn’t successful in getting the internal role but I was successful in a) getting a bit more visibility, b) being asked to take on a short term acting role and c) I got a pay rise within my current grade(!)
I am very appreciative of the help you have given me not only to smarten up my CV but also to get me to start thinking in the way that those in the role I currently aspire to be in do.
Andy successfully represented me for a contract role. Andy was very professional yet diligent in ensuring I understood the role, the highlights of the client and more importantly how I profiled myself for the interview to help successfully secure the role.
