TESTIMONIALS

Here is what our Clients & Candidates have to say about us 

“handled with the utmost of professionalism.


"Our company needed to find a new Finance and Accounting Manager. As the role is key in the organisation, it was important to us to find a candidate that was ‘just right.’ I have used recruitment firms in the past with results that were sort-of-hit and mostly-miss with the occasional disaster. Because we needed to move quickly, with some trepidation I decided to approach Wright Executive.


"I am so glad that I did! From scheduling the first consultation to rendering the final invoice, everything was handled with the utmost of professionalism.


"Communication was terrific, presentation was flawless, and most importantly, the candidates were all superb. I was put in the position of having to make a difficult choice between the candidates presented, which is exactly what I wanted to happen. This is the first recruitment experience that I can say I was 100% satisfied with and I know who I’ll be talking to for key positions in the future.


"Thank you to Paul and Wright Executive team for setting the bar so high! "

“team went the extra mile

 

"Paul Simms of Wright Executive has recently been engaged by Doka East Asia Pacific to help us recruiting a Head of Finance & Controlling for our Australian operations. We approached Wright Executive directly initially, and have found the service to be nothing short of excellent.


"Paul came out to meet with our local MD and regional HR, took the time to deeply understand this pivotal role, our hiring needs and the business as a whole, along with the cultural and personal aspects of the position, he then conducted a thorough market executive search and presented a strong shortlist of highly appropriate candidates which fell very much within our brief.


"Although, due to complications we couldn’t find the right match in the first round, Paul and his team went the extra mile, presented a new shortlist containing two extremely relevant executives forward. We ultimately appointed a superb Head of Finance.


"I would certainly be happy to recommend Paul and Wright Executive to any corporate business looking to hire members of their senior leadership team on an Executive Search basis.

“Paul [Wright Executive] is a gentleman and a scholar. He helped me transition into a new role, he identified what I was looking for and found exactly the right people to speak with.

“thinking outside the square…

 

"Wright Executive are highly capable of thinking outside the square when advising job seekers and clients.  


"Many of the vast number of recruiters I have dealt with as both a job seeking candidate and as a hiring client do not seem capable of this approach.  


"Wright Executive provide an impeccable level of professionalism and high-quality service. In addition to this, they ask the right, intelligent and intuitive questions to understand what really motivates all parties.


"This adds value to the process of ensuring a mutually beneficial match and you know that you are obtaining expertise rather than participating in a box ticking exercise"

“great recruiters that understand your business are unique

 

"I have dealt with a number of Recruitment Consultants but have found that the great recruiters that understand your business are unique.


"Most are after the ‘quick placement’ and then move on – the vast majority push candidates that are not even close to a match  to my needs but are put forward because of a single word in a candidates CV, like ‘project’, ‘strategy’ etc.


"Paul Simms from Wright Executive is different. He takes the time to understand, at a detailed level, the specific requirements and skill sets and any unique client needs.


"He has maintained an ongoing relationship with me that has allowed the firm to tap into resources the firm would not otherwise be able to secure. Paul has a high sense of personal and business ethics, is well respected and it is a pleasure to work with him.

“The enthusiasm, professionalism and sheer commitment displayed by Paul Simms [Wright Executive] far exceeded my expectations.


"The recommendations made by him in relation to how each of the offers made to me should be separately weighed, revealed his excellent understanding of my personal needs and preferences.


"In particular, I am very pleased with the way Paul openly recommended to take on the offer I received externally as opposed to the one received from his own client. This clearly evidences Paul’s selfless attitude and client centric focus which I should say is very rare in the industry these days. 


"I have experience dealing with Paul both as a Candidate and a Recruiting Manager, and I'm pleased to say that he excelled my expectations in both the roles. I strongly recommend his services to both Recruiters & Candidates alike.
