In today’s world there is an army of contractors working who are highly skilled professionals, with advanced skills and strong work ethics. Wilkinson and Associates have found this to be particularly true in the Accountancy and Business Change sectors. We have found that approximately 50% of the roles in Scotland for fully Qualified Accountants have been contract positions in recent years. Within the Business Change sector, this has been even higher.

In this day and age everyone has some experience of social media, whether you are an infrequent Facebooker, Tweetaholic or networking on LinkedIn, we now truly live in a social media society. The huge and continued rise of smart phone use has driven this change; around half of the UK population now have a smartphone*, a figure which is set to rise greatly over the next few years. While the traditional forms of recruitment advertising remain invaluable, social media offers clients and candidates access to a wealth of information instantly at work, on-the-go or from the comfort of your own home.

Guy Gracie, Associate Director is this week’s consultant profile. Guy manages our permanent offering and is our ‘go to person’ for all permanent recruitment needs in the senior Accountancy and Finance arena. Guy is our second longest standing member of staff and on a lighter note we can always rely on Guy to crack a few jokes in the office (some better than others).

It might not involve last-minute £multi-million deals with the main protagonists pocketing £200,000 per week salaries but nonetheless we are approaching a traditionally very busy period in the recruitment market. As we all wave goodbye to the Summer (at least we’ve actually had one to wave off this year), companies everywhere are returning to the world of business as usual and many business leaders are turning their attention to the resources available to them as part of their medium and long-term planning processes.

This week’s consultant profile is with our Associate Director, Colin Grieve who runs the Business Change desk. Colin is our in house guru for all ‘Business Change’ recruitment needs and is somewhat of a wine connoisseur (not sure I would describe myself as a connoisseur – more of an enthusiastic amateur - CG), we can always rely on Colin for a tip on a nice bottle of red.
