Dress Code for Interview

October 03 2017

A client of ours recently gave me feedback that one of our candidates had been unsuccessful at interview. Nothing unique in that I hear our competitors say!

Shine with Wilkinson & Associates...

Market leading package uncapped bonus.

Established in early 2003, Wilkinson & Associates' is Scotland's only consultancy specialising in the recruitment of Qualified Accountants and Business Change Professionals. Our approach is both flexible and innovative - we take pride in listening carefully to our clients in order to effect bespoke solutions. We are a specialist consultancy and believe in quality rather than quantity. We also feel that with the right levels of energy and focus, anything is possible.

Continued organic growth has led us to invite applications from talented and ambitious recruitment professionals who share our philosophy.

We'd be keen to hear from recruitment consultants, with circa 18 months interim or permanent experience who are committed to providing a similar quality-led approach. Alternatively we welcome responses from those looking for a career in recruitment - you may currently be working in sales, marketing, HR or finance/corporate finance. We want you to work "with" us rather than "for" us. As a Specialist, you will have the opportunity to develop your own niche area within the qualified marketplace and you will be supported by a thorough and structured training program.

What sort of people are we looking for? If you work in the recruitment sector you will already boast a successful track record and a reputation synonymous with quality, however you will feel frustrated and you are unable to fulfil your potential. Whatever your background, you will have the presence and credibility to forge lasting relationships.  A self-starter, you will be motivated by your own high standards and will be at your best working autonomously rather than being micro-managed. We are looking for positive, enthusiastic team players will share our sense of fun.

Confident, but not arrogant, you will bring a pragmatic and level-headed approach and recognise that working "smart" achieves more than working "8-till-8".  Perhaps most importantly you will share our view that your success will be entirely dependent on providing our clients and candidates with nothing less than the 5-star service they have come to expect.

To share in the success of one of Scotland's fastest growing consultancies call Ian Wilkinson on 0131 225 8030 for an informal discussion or send your CV with a covering letter detailing you suitability to ian@wilkinsonandassociates.co.uk. All enquiries will be treated in the strictest confidence.
