  • ​I have worked at Worldwide Recruitment Solutions Ltd for 3.5 years as an Account Manager within the Marine Division. Having come from a financial solutions background the world of recruitment was completely new to me, however I haven’t looked back since!From my very first day at WRS the company were so welcoming and have been very supportive over the last few years, I can honestly say the team are not just colleagues, but have become friends too. I genuinely love my job although there are certainly challenging days and weeks. My role entails liaising and building relationships with clients and crew, issuing contracts, arranging travel, visas and any required training, keeping the rota and pay tables updated, processing timesheets and expenses, and any other general queries.WRS are a great company to work for, the management team are approachable, open and honest in all situations, and are always looking to promote within. I have recently been promoted to Principle Account Manager so am delighted my hard work has paid off and been recognised.

  • ​I started at WRS almost 12 years ago with only a years’ experience in recruitment and zero knowledge of the energy sectors. I was given a PC, a phone, and a directive to go and explore the contract hire market in the Oil & Gas sector. Fast forward 12 years on and I am the Global Business Development Manager for the WRS Group, working across all our Energy divisions. I’ve spent time working in and developing all of our international offices. I am the client lead for most of our major accounts and more recently I have become a Director of our Joint venture businesses in East Africa. One of the key factors of my success is the autonomy the business has allowed me whilst constantly supporting the development work I have produced. Every step of the way our CEO and senior management team have been behind me to assess the opportunities coming to the table and make the right decisions on which to pursue. Together we have built and developed the international side of the group from a starting point of 10 people in South Manchester to our current standpoint of 5 global offices and a headcount approaching 100 people. I couldn't imagine working for another company. This is my home; this is my business, and this is where my heart is. Who we are and the work we do here at WRS defines us. The key to our success is the level of service we provide to our customers and candidates. Our reputation precedes us, and our client testimonials continue to verify this.

  • ​My career started with WRS in February 2019. During my first year as a recruitment consultant, I began with the mining team, before moving onto oil & gas, and then eventually moving into the trading and commodities division. This initial 12 months of working across multiple divisions taught me a lot about recruitment across the energies space, both permanent and contract. Having the chance to experience our different sectors, twinned with the learning and development opportunities that WRS provide, enabled me to gain the cross-sector knowledge that I still utilise today.The impact of Covid-19 across the energy and recruitment market in 2020, gave me the opportunity to diversify again and my focus moved to growing the renewable energy division at WRS. I have always had a keen interest in sustainability and doing my bit to support the efforts against climate change, so I embraced this new role. In a 360 capacity, my aim was to create and build relationships with new and existing clients across the renewable energy space, and work alongside our new recruits to build our global team. As our client relationships and roles began to grow, the team also grew, and we are now a fully functioning team of 8 experienced consultants who all contribute to the success of the division. Our project scope and recruitment services now span internationally across all key areas of the renewable energy industry, and we have continuing success in placing candidates across international roles. WRS provide consistent opportunities such as; learning and professional development courses where possible, and international travel for various conferences, events, and client meetings. Following on from my success, my role is due to change again this year. In July 2022 I will move into a focused Business Development capacity and take a step out of recruitment. I am excited for what the future holds in this role, and with the continued support of the WRS Senior Management Team the future growth of the renewable energy team.

  • ​“I joined WRS in 2015 after working in recruitment at another company. From my recruitment experience, I knew that my preference and skillset lay on the candidate side (rather than the clients), so when I saw an opportunity to join WRS as the Internal Recruiter, focusing on candidates who wanted to join WRS as Recruiters, I thought it was a perfect opportunity for me. My role has changed massively since then and I love the fact that I can look back with satisfaction on a varied career with WRS which has challenged me every day. Today I head up HR. WRS didn’t have an official ‘HR’ department before I set it up, so I’ve worked hard to create this function within the business and make it an integral part of our operations. This has seen me move onto the Senior Management Team (SMT) in the last two years. I enjoy playing a part in the team that leads WRS, as I’m so passionate about this business and supporting the people in it. At WRS, the message is simple – if you have the right attitude and application, you will be rewarded. These rewards will come in the form of salary increases, promotions, additional responsibility, trust, flexibility, incentives, bonuses… The list is endless. I have been given opportunities I never thought possible when I started here in 2015, and there is more to come as we continue to grow.”

  • ​I began my career with WRS in September 2018, coming from a hospitality background this was a huge change for me. I was immediately made to feel welcome and that I could add value to the team. My first division was Mining which I loved, it was a great learning curve, and I was taught by the best in the business.After having a baby and post pandemic I returned to work at WRS to a different division, which was the rapidly growing market of Renewable Energy. Within this team I was given the opportunity to become a Managing Consultant / Team Lead. This role allows me to develop my leadership skills, training skills and gives me the opportunity to grow and support the team.Another part of my role includes being a member of the Junior Management Team and a Superuser of our CRM systems. WRS has given me the chance to grow, develop and become part of a business that I feel valued and happy to come to work every day. Not to mention the great incentives, holidays, group events and parties that we all get to attend. Not only do we reward and incentivise success, but we give you the tools make it possible.​

  • My journey with WRS started in May 2021when Covid restrictions were starting to lift. I moved from Derry in Northern Ireland to Manchester to join WRS as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant with no prior experience or knowledge in Recruitment or the Marine sector. From day one I was given extensive training from our dedicated L&D department, which gave me the foundations of Recruitment. I also got support from a mentor, in my case an experienced Recruiter called Stuart, who honed my knowledge in the Marine industry. Thankfully with the training and advice given to me, I was able to make a quick start as a recruiter, achieving some early success by making my first placement within my first 2 weeks. I noticed quickly that recruitment wasn’t always full of highs, there were many challenges to overcome too. The continuous weekly support meetings with HR and Stuart provided me a regular platform to continually develop and in just 4 months I was promoted to Recruitment consultant. By December of the same year, I was given an opportunity to work within the Business Development team. My initial training in BD was provided by L&D - it was like starting anew once again! I was impressed with the support I received in my training which really prepares you for every aspect of your recruitment career. Our Head of HR, Emma, checked in with me weekly in my new role while we continued to do regular BD training sessions. There are many challenges in Business Development that I am learning to overcome, and Matthew Spells and Scott Redfern, my two colleagues on the BD team, are always ready to give me advice whenever I need assistance – it’s amazing to tap into their 20+ years of Maritime BD experience. I am looking forward to continuing my business development career as I know I am only at the start of this long journey. With the guidance of my colleagues at WRS, I know I will always have the support I need at hand.

  • ​At WRS the egos are left at the door and the team ethic and attitude comes to the fore in every interaction, we are all pulling in the same direction and that sense is palpable. Recruitment should be a meritocracy and this company exemplifies that. A good idea is a good idea and will be given due consideration regardless of who has it which means you are able to chat as openly with the company founders as you can with your peers. WRS trust their people, the autonomy you are afforded as an individual is extremely gratifying and the opportunity to progress is genuine and achievable.

  • ​I have always had an interest in the Oil & Gas sector, it’s something I’ve had an ambition to get into. So, I was delighted when I saw the position advertised and even more delighted when I was asked to join the Contractor Care Team at WRS. On my very first day, I received a great training plan from Emma Upton (HR) and my manager Richard Baillie-Gray. The guidance and support within my role have enabled me to learn new things each day about the sector and I felt confident operating in my role very quickly. I genuinely enjoy my job and all the people that work here. I look forward to developing myself here at WRS.

  • ​I joined WRS in the Renewable Energy Division late in 2021. Working remotely from Italy was challenging in the beginning, but I was given a lot of support during that time and integrated easily into a fantastic team. I had no prior experience in recruitment when I first began working at WRS. Thanks to all the resources that I was provided, I was able to develop a solid understanding of the role, and I am eager to see where this experience will lead me in the future!

  • ​I started with WRS in July 2021 as the Office, Business & Facilities Co-ordinator. I was first drawn to WRS because of their amazing culture, it is very much a family feel culture and as an employer they are extremely flexible which for me, as new mum returning to work, was really important. At WRS your voice matters and I feel that as a company they really do invest in you as a person and do what they can to help you develop and progress within the business.

  • ​WRS has given me the opportunity to continue working in the industry I love. Before I joined, I was working as a Marine officer but decided I wanted a change. I was sure I could use my previous experience to become a successful recruiter. With the guidance and support of WRS I have progressed from Trainee to Senior Recruitment Consultant and am a mentor to many of our new starters in the division. Working with a great bunch of people really helps and I enjoy the variety my role offers. Having the responsibility of training and mentoring new employees has helped my growth significantly and I am thankful to WRS for giving me the opportunity. What’s also great about working at WRS is the flexibility which enables me to split my time between home and the office, I do like to work remotely but also love being with the team where we can share our experiences.

  • ​It’s my absolute pleasure to recommend Worldwide Recruitment Solutions (WRS) for the re-tendering process with Genel Energy.I thoroughly enjoyed having WRS to manage my contract with Genel Energy and came to know the team as a truly valuable asset. Since day one, the communication was honest and transparent to make the onboarding process the smoothest possible. In fact, not only sending emails explaining all the details but also follow up telephone calls to ensure that all the questions that I may have are answered. I have received all the contractor care documentation in a timely manner and with detailed explanation of the content and the procedure. The Contractor Care Manager has always been in touch with me either by emails or phone calls. He’s always available to answer my queries. The payroll process has been for me the smoothest one I could ask for. It does take less than a week to process the payment from the date of timesheet submission.Team WRS has been dependable, and incredibly efficient in every way.Without a doubt, I confidently recommend WRS for personnel recruitment and contract management. As a dedicated and knowledgeable company and all-around great team, I know that WRS is a beneficial addition to any organization.Oct-2021

  • ​“I love working at WRS because of the culture – it’s a very friendly and supportive environment. It really feels like one big team with one goal. Everyone works hard but also has fun along the way. The company social events are amazing, and it’s lovely to feel rewarded for your hard work. I’ve received lots of support from the CEO, who is a great mentor and I have learnt so much from him. He’s there when I need advice but also steps back and allows me to work autonomously as well. We have regular 1 to 1s which is useful to assess how I have performed. WRS have a flexible approach when it comes to working from home and I really enjoy the hybrid approach. I love being in the office with my colleagues to bounce ideas off each other and have some banter! I also enjoy the quietness of working from home when I really need to concentrate. The mixture is just perfect.”

WRS has been flexible to my own aspirations throughout my time with the business, whether supporting me on developing into a BD role, or moving to a new country and growing a team there.
