What our clients say about us
I worked with Wilson Grey to place a contract role at short notice on two occasions and they were excellent. They made sure to understand the role and worked tirelessly to present suitable CVs, sometimes working over the weekend to ensure I had a list of good candidates to screen. Both times, all the candidates that got through to interview were suitable for the role and once placed, turned out to be excellent. Wilson Grey have great follow-up as well, keeping in regular contact throughout the contract period. I will definitely use them in future when the need arises.

I've worked with Wilson Grey on a couple senior roles now and it's been a real pleasure. Before understanding the ins and outs of the role, they have always made it their priority to understand the culture of our business first, which as a scaling company, is paramount. All feedback/guidance is always listened to with open ears, which ensures that each candidate sent through is excellent and a great fit. The process is also brilliant - constant communication means we never feel in the dark. It often feels as though Wilson Grey are simply an extension of our hiring team.
