Twelve ladies joined our consultants Andrea Green, Gillian Stewart and Julia Argo on the evening of Thursday 16th May at Harvey Nichols for an evening of fashion and fun.

Anyone who has been through a pre-employment can know only too well how rigorous this process can be, particularly within the Financial Services Industry. Whether you are considering the contract market or seeking a permanent position, there are some important documents you require to satisfy an employer’s pre-employment screening checks and it is important to be aware of this at an early stage as it is now a vital stage in the recruitment process and critical to reaching a successful conclusion once an offer is made.

The job market has changed dramatically over the last five years, with a steep increase in the number of qualified finance professionals working within contract positions and also companies hiring on this flexible basis. Contractors may work either on a fixed term contract (salaried) basis on a company payroll or on an hourly/daily rate basis, the latter being increasingly commonplace in the current market.

This month at W&A, we celebrate 10 years in business. We’re not particularly nostalgic, but thought it appropriate to pause and reflect on an amazing 10 years. It’s been (largely) fun and we’re still here to tell the tale!

The candidate tool-kit required to do so:
As part of the continuing development of Wilkinson & Associates’ Business Change function, we have been speaking with many of the key decision makers in the world of Change Management. Throughout those discussions, one recurring theme seems prevalent; the desire amongst Change Management experts to see an appreciation of the professionalism of Change Management disciplines in the workplace by key business stakeholders. This is not to suggest that Change Management as a discipline in itself is ignored or dismissed in terms of its importance or relevance. However, there is a feeling that perhaps those focused solely on BAU activities often overlook the importance of Change Management and how it’s successful implementation can have a massive impact on shaping future BAU activities.

Last Thursday evening Wilkinson & Associates went along to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre to support the annual SportsQuest Dinner. This superb night, now in its 14th year, is one of the highlights in the entertainment calendar. It’s based around a sports quiz, with teams of ten competing to be champions by demonstrating their knowledge of sport through four rounds of questions. The standard is high and with 2012 being such an unforgettable year (Ryder Cup, European Championships, Olympics, Tour de France to name but a few), there was a lot to get through.

Whether you are For or Against it, Scottish Independence remains a topic close to the heart of many who reside north of the border. There continues to be healthy debate on the subject and a host of friendly discussions, and no doubt occasionally fierce arguments, around tables in boardrooms, pubs and homes as to why Scotland should stand alone or remain part of the union. Many hold a strong opinion on the matter and the fact remains that the outcome of the impending referendum, whatever the decision, could change the future of the nation forever. As such it is becoming a serious consideration in decision making for both employers and employees as they look at their personal lives and careers.
