VWA Search & Consultancy Process

We know how busy our clients can be, which is why we have a clear, step by step search and selection method, designed to make the recruitment process as simple and as efficient as possible for you.

We've got it covered

From taking a detailed brief through to managing the offer and follow up stages, we will handle it all for you, so you can focus on meeting and selecting from a pool of pre-vetted, suitable candidates.

Our highly bespoke recruitment service is centred on understanding our clients’ needs and expectations. Our rigorous selection process enables us to deliver small, focused lists of only the very best and relevant candidates.

Briefing Meeting

Your personal Consultant will take a detailed briefing and explore competencies and work-style preferences, as we believe a clear understanding of your company culture is an essential part of the recruitment process.

Candidate Search

Our expert Research Consultants will conduct a thorough search of our established database, where we have 1000’s of permanent and temporary candidates. From there, they will decide if it is necessary to conduct a targeted CV search, or place an anonymous advertisement on various established job boards that we partner with.


Competency Based Interview and Assessment

From here, the Research Consultants will conduct telephone interviews to assess candidate capability and suitability for the job. Suitable candidates are then given a full competency and biographical interview, where we focus on understanding career aspirations, cultural fit, technical skills and behaviours.

Your Consultant will select and present to you a crafted list of candidates, all of whom have been thoroughly briefed. Alongside a CV you will receive a profile providing further details of the candidates’ competencies, skills and aspirations.

We pride ourselves on our ability to represent our clients through our deep understanding of your business and cultural requirements.
