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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
