It's all about the way that we do things
Wilkinson & Associates specialise in assisting Business Change Professionals and Qualified Accountants looking for a new opportunity or those seeking career guidance. Our personal and consultative approach is to enter into a partnership with jobseekers in order to help you find your ideal role.
Whether you are a Qualified Accountant, or an experienced Business Analysts, Project Manager or Programme Manager, Wilkinson & Associates will provide a bespoke and discreet service to help you identify the most suitable permanent or temporary position. To find information about current recruitment in Edinburgh you can look at our featured jobs.
We believe our expert knowledge saves our clients valuable time and money when it comes to permanent recruitment. We meet with all our clients in person wherever possible. Our consultative and personal approach provides a bespoke service based on a solid understanding of both employers' and jobseekers' individual needs and aspirations.
The permanent recruitment team appreciates that a "one hat fits all" approach does not work when dealing with our clients' careers and company requirements. In some cases clients may ask us to present a list of current job opportunities or candidates. In other instances, it may be more appropriate for our consultants to identify companies or individuals of interest and tailor an approach that allows a relatively informal introduction. Our knowledge of the accountancy market place allows us to do this in a focused and targeted manner by working collaboratively with our clients.
Wilkinson & Associates recognise that the needs of a newly Qualified Accountant vary to those of a Senior Finance Executive, and that the needs of Corporate Financier differ to those of a Tax Accountant. As a result our consultants specialise in helping jobseekers at different stages of their career.
Wilkinson & Associates have an established portfolio of immediately available opportunities for temporary short, medium and long term vacancies. Our temporary recruitment team appreciates that time is of the essence to both employers and jobseekers when looking at temporary job opportunities.
We strongly believe that jobseekers and employers should not settle for second best when it comes to interim solutions and our approach to temporary recruitment is therefore as rigorous as it is for permanent positions.
We listen carefully to what our clients want. We accurately pinpoint opportunities for jobseekers that meet their needs and aspirations. Likewise, we adopt an approach of finding a good interpersonal fit and a speedy solution for all our clients.
Business Change Team
As a niche, quality-driven consultancy we do not claim to have the largest database of candidates and would never look to compete in a volume driven world. Our strength lies in the depth and breadth of our consultants’ experience with a minimum of 10 years’ experience in the Scottish marketplace.
This experience and the level of market intelligence this brings ensures that any assignment we work on will be approached with a focus on quality and getting the “right fit every time”. Unlike other businesses in our sector, our consultants are not targeted on the number of CV’s they send out or the number of “cold calls” they make, quite the opposite. We appreciate that our clients’ time is precious and the job of a good recruiter is to save you time by ensuring that first of all we listen to your requirements and that any candidates presented to you have been fully vetted and their skills and personality assessed against you and your company’s requirements.
For candidates, we understand the pressures and sensitivities involved in a change of jobs. We will spend time with you on a face-to-face basis to ensure we fully understand your needs and in addition to ensuring you get access to the full range of live opportunities our team are working on at any given time, we will also work with you to design an “action plan” which will be focused on utilising our extensive network in the Scottish marketplace to pro-actively approach organisations you would like to work with.
Operational Support Team
Wilkinson & Associates' operational support team is dedicated to assisting employers and jobseekers throughout the recruitment process.
Our team provides administrative support to temporary jobseekers, guiding candidates through the documentation requirements of working on a temporary basis. In addition, the team assists employers with all account and management information enquiries, as well as working with employers who wish to advertise a specific vacancy.
