What they said

"From the first moment I spoke to Andrea and Aisling, I knew I was in excellent hands. They are both highly professional and personable, taking the time to fully understand exactly the type of contract role I was looking for and only contacting me with relevant roles. They put a lot of effort into ensuring I was comfortable with the requirements of the job spec and invested invaluable time in interview preparation; going above and beyond what is expected. I would highly recommend Andrea and Aisling and I am very happy to have them as my agents." Lynn, Finance Manager

"I would highly recommend working with Wilkinson & Associates. From the first time I contacted them, it was clear that they were professional, understood the Accountancy profession and the current market, and were dedicated to finding the right role for me." Interim Accountant

“My experience of working with Aisling was exceptional. Providing a service that is second to none. She helped me secure exactly the type of role I was looking. She went above and beyond to ensure I would be prepared for the interviews. I would highly recommend Aisling if you are considering a new role” Shoaib, Senior Reporting Analyst

"Having first dealt with Wilkinson & Associates several years ago it was clear from my initial meeting with Andrea that they had an excellent understanding of the finance and accounting recruitment market, and the skill set of the candidates being placed. Subsequent communications have always been really clear in advising on my career path, and giving feedback at all stages of the recruitment process. The Operations team have been really proactive and professional in walking me through any vetting and administration issues with potential employers. All in all a very professional and personable experience from start to finish which I highly recommend." Interim Accountant

"Aisling was a great help to me when I was looking for a new role after having just moved to Edinburgh. She was extremely knowledgeable of the local market, very proactive in finding opportunities for me and regularly in touch with any relevant updates. As a result I found a great role much quicker than I thought I would." Justin, Finance Manager

"I would highly recommend Wilkinson & Associates. I decided to make my first move out of practice and naturally was in contact with a number of different recruitment companies. However, when I first spoke to Ross at W&A it was clear immediately that he was a cut above the others in relation to his knowledge of the market and his ability to understand immediately the type of role I was looking for. Within a short period of time from my first communication with Ross I had secured a great role in the financial services sector. I was impressed with Ross throughout the recruitment process and would advise anyone looking for a move in this sector to contact W&A. " Kenny, Financial Reporting Manager, Glasgow

"I would highly recommend Wilkinson Associates. Moving to Edinburgh from another city it was great to have someone who was able to provide expert advice into the local market and also select roles that were suitable to my skillset and experience. I was very impressed with the professionalism of Ross and the time he gave me as an individual was great. He was on hand to provide some great tips for the interviews that were lined up which ultimately helped me land my new role." Michael, Treasury Middle Office Manager, Edinburgh

"I used a few recruitment firms in my last job search, and Ross and the rest of the team at W&A really stood out for me in the support they gave to prepare for interviews. I walked in confident to perform my best because I knew what to expect from the interview, the employer and the role. Unfortunately for Ross he placed me into a job a love, so I don't expect to need his services for a while. But when I do, he'll be my first call." Anna, Finance Business Partner, Edinburgh

"I was really impressed with Ross and everyone I spoke with at W&A. I felt they had my best interests at heart and really looked for a job that suited me, which is unlike some other agencies I have dealt with in the past. I wouldn't hesitate to use W&A again or recommend them to a friend. " Simon, Technical Accountant, Edinburgh

"It was an absolute pleasure working with Aisling. Following redundancy I was in touch with a number of Recruitment Agencies but Aisling’s personal skills made Wilkinson & Associates stand head and shoulders above the crowd. Aisling was actively matching from Day 1, highly professional in every respect and above all her personal touch ensured that she case managed every step through to placing and starting in role. The support didn’t end there, once in role Aisling continually kept in touch ensuring I had everything I needed, could talk anything through and ensured the contract was going smoothly. Aisling was always balanced in her advice and left decisions with the job seeker with a deep understanding that placing a candidate into a role is not just a case of putting someone in to fill a gap but that it is a significant part of a candidate's life with a big impact on their future direction." Petra, Financial Accountant
