We work across many sectors, such as financial and professional services, through to private households and the performing arts.

Our business isn’t just about finding the right people – it’s built on them. Our dedicated team of consultants will work hard to ensure you’re well looked after.

Our strongest advertisement is our reputation, and we are fortunate that nearly all our clients have been recommended to us through our extensive network. Our candidate drop-out rate has been under 5% since our inception in 1989.

Our Selection Method

We have honed and enhanced our candidate selection process over more than 25 years, added in technologies and digital innovations, making it more effective than ever.

Our core methodology involves:

1. Briefing Meeting:

Your personal consultant will explore competencies and work-style preferences, and will always be happy to meet with you wherever your business is located, as we believe a clear understanding of your company culture is essential.

2. Candidate Search:

Our consultants work together to search for possible candidates. Aside from our extensive database, we activate our established networks to target potential options. If necessary, a discreet advertising strategy is developed with applicants put through a rigorous screening process.

3. Assessment and Selection:

All candidates undergo detailed biographical interviews in which their competencies are tested. Your consultant usually selects a maximum of four suitable people to present to you.

4. Client-candidate Interviews:

Both you and the candidate are fully briefed before meeting. Thorough feedback is obtained from both parties, which is relayed honestly and sensitively, while expectations and reactions are carefully managed.

5. Offer and Follow-through:

We negotiate a suitable compensation package and organise referencing. Your consultant will remain in contact with you and the candidate until the start date and beyond, to ensure a smooth transition.

Client Testimonials

Our strongest advertisement is our reputation.
Our candidate drop-out rate has been under 5% since our inception in 1989.

Debbie Freeman, Director of HR, Intelligence Business Solutions
“Thank you for supplying us with Ashleigh, she has been amazing and probably one of the best temps we have had in a long time. Diligent, cool and professional. We will not hesitate to ask for her again by name in the future. I should like to set you up as a preferred supplier.”

Paul Hammond, Hammond Partners
“VWA helped me fill an urgent role very quickly and efficiently. Amanda and Cecilia were also delightful to deal with. I can highly recommend them.”

Rebecca Blakemore, Office Manager & PA to the Partners, Charme Capital Partners
“I wanted to send a note to say that both Claire and Jessica have done a great job covering for me whilst I was off ill. It is always tricky to hit the ground running especially in this role but please pass on my thanks to them both for being so proactive and efficient. We would happily have them again as and when needed!”

Cassandra Goodwin, COO, Kea Consultants
“We’ve used WVA for our internal recruitment needs for the last several years, and they’ve presented us with some great people. It’s always a great experience working with them; the service is extremely personal and we feel that they take the time to understand our firm and our culture, and then ensure that the people they present to us are not only relevant from a background and skills perspective but are also going to fit in with the rest of the team.”

Mark Jankovich, CEO – Delphis Eco
“As a small business we don’t recruit that often, but when we do, we take it incredibly seriously. Cultural fit and chemistry are so important, let alone finding a person who has all of the skills we need, and none of the faults we don’t need. I have worked with Rosa at VWA since the early days of Delphis Eco back in 2009. She listened to what I thought I needed, and then provided what I really needed. Her extensive experience of working with different types and sizes of businesses came in handy, and I see Rosa as an extension of our company. Finding the right person is one thing, getting them to join is another and on boarding them is probably the most vital, all of which Rosa does brilliantly. I hope to rely on her advice and collaboration as we grow our eco-business to infinity and beyond!”
