After a career break, I started to look for work again and dealt with a number of recruitment agencies. Balfour Wilson really stood out from the rest. I felt that they value candidates as much as employers, they took a serious interest in my CV and took the time to understand what I was looking for, they were very encouraging in their conversations with me and – most important for me – gave timely and positive feedback on the progress of my application.
When I approached Balfour Wilson I was in what felt like an impossible position in my career. I was going through the uncertainty of redundancy. Both Moira and Caley were invaluable in providing me with positive support and making me realise the potential in myself. I am now thriving in my new role, which they had a huge part in helping me secure. I would recommend Balfour Wilson to anyone.
Balfour Wilson are a forward-thinking company with an extremely professional approach to recruitment.
No Jargon or recruitment hype, just honesty and a real human feel.
I would highly recommend this company to anyone who wants to find the right job or the right person
A friendly, professional recruitment company who worked hard to find the right person for the vacancy on our reception. We were impressed that all candidates put forward were of a high standard. Many thanks to Caley and Moira for helping us to fill this position
Caley and Moira provide a very personal and dedicated recruitment experience in a sea of impersonal and lazy recruitment agencies. They took the time to get to know me and understand what it was I was looking for, which helped match me to a role I enjoy and can grow in. I can’t recommend them enough.
I was made redundant from a previous role earlier in the year. I had a child and bills to pay and although I knew I could manage for at least a few months out of a job, the thought terrified me. In a panic I had applied for jobs online that really didn’t match my skills but Balfour Wilson contacted me and advised me that they had read over my resume and had identified a job role that would be more suited to my skill set. Within a day I had my first interview and I started in the role a week later!
I can’t thank Caley & Moira enough, offering one of the best and hands-on approach to the recruitment process I found them so supportive, motivating and highly professional throughout my whole experience with them.
Moira and Caley are lovely ladies and a pleasure to deal with, they are certainly not the typical “pushy” recruitment consultants who I try to avoid, they build their business on long lasting relationships and they take the time to fully understand your business requirements. A pleasure to deal with.
Over the past 19 months, we’ve engaged Balfour Wilson for three different levels of staff searches (Senior Management, Mid-Level Management and Support Staff). Each time, the Candidates they sent us were successful and they have become our go-to agency. For our most recent post we went straight to Moira and Caley and secured our first-choice Candidate within two days- and saved ourselves two weeks of interviews. I would unconditionally recommend them.
