This November, our dedicated team is stepping up to support a vital cause - Movember. The team is ready to grow facial hair and, in the process, raise awareness and funds for men's health issues. The Movember movement is all about making a difference, one mustache or beard at a time.
Why Movember Matters
Movember is more than just an excuse to let our facial hair run wild - it's a global initiative that addresses critical men's health issues. The Movember Foundation focuses on tackling prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health, and suicide prevention.These are significant challenges that affect men all over the world, and we want to be part of the solution.
Prizes for the Best Beards and Mustaches
To make our Movember journey even more exciting, we've decided to host a friendly competition within our team. We will be awarding prizes for the best beards and mustaches that our team members grow during the month of November. This is your chance to get creative, embrace your inner facial hair artist, and, of course, contribute to a great cause.
How to Get Involved
Joining our Movember team is easy, and everyone is welcome. Here's how you can get involved:
Register: Sign up to be a part of our Movember team. We'll provide you with all the information you need to get started.
Grow: Throughout November, let your facial hair flourish. Don't forget to document your journey with photos and share your progress with the team.
Fundraise: Help us make a real impact by seeking donations from friends, family, and colleagues. Every donation counts.
Compete: If you're up for the challenge, participate in our best beard and mustache competition. Get creative, show your style, and have fun.
Spread the Word: Use your Movember journey to raise awareness about men's health issues. Share your story on social media, and encourage others to get involved too.
To make things even more exciting, we're offering some fantastic prizes for the best beards and mustaches. Whether you're aiming for the bushiest beard, the most intricate mustache, or something entirely unique, there's a prize waiting for the winners. We believe that fostering some friendly competition is an excellent way to motivate our team members and show appreciation for your dedication to the cause.

My name is Richard, and my journey at WRS has been nothing short of amazing. I began as a trainee recruitment consultant in November, and with the ongoing support of WRS and the incredible oil and gas team, I successfully passed probation in February, earning the title of recruitment consultant. Since then, I've been on an exhilarating path toward becoming the Expat/Client Liaison Manager for the highly anticipated EACOP project in Dar es Salaam. This is an exciting project to be a part of, an opportunity to broaden my experience and develop my skills in a new environment. The prospect of this new role fills me with excitement and anticipation. It's a fantastic opportunity to showcase my skills and contribute to this groundbreaking project. As I prepare to mobilise to Tanzania at the end of September, I'm filled with a mix of nervousness and eagerness. It's the start of a new chapter in my life, one that promises adventure and growth. I'm grateful for the trust and support WRS has placed in me, and I'm determined to make the most of this exciting journey ahead.Richard Goodwin-Robertson Expat/Client Liaison Manager
I am thrilled to announce my transition to the Learning and Development (L&D) team at WRS after initially joining on the Oil and Gas recruitment team. Throughout my career in recruitment, a total of 17 years, I have gained a deep understanding of the industry's dynamics and stayed up to date with the latest trends and best practices. I have worked in many industries including education, social care, nursing and now energy. My hands-on experience has equipped me with the ability to identify exceptional candidates and comprehend the skills and qualities necessary for success in various roles. Now, as a member of the L&D team, I am excited to share this valuable insight with new recruits joining WRS, providing them with the necessary tools and knowledge to thrive in the recruitment field. In addition to my role in L&D, I am honoured to be entrusted with the responsibility of managing WRS's internal recruitment processes. Building upon my extensive background in recruitment, I will implement effective strategies to attract and hire the most talented individuals who will contribute to WRS's growth and success. By conducting thorough assessments and facilitating seamless onboarding experiences, I aim to shape our workforce in alignment with WRS's organisational objectives while fostering a culture of excellence. I am confident that my unique combination of recruitment expertise and passion for teaching will have a positive impact on WRS's growth. By nurturing talent and sharing my industry knowledge, I will empower new recruits to excel and make meaningful contributions to our organisation.

Throughout my time at WRS, I’ve experienced all the things that define the WRS culture and make it a great company to work for. I know from firsthand experience that it’s a collaborative environment, where we work on projects that impact the business together, taking everyone’s ideas onboard. I know that WRS is a company that rewards hard work, commitment, and dedication. I know that it’s a company where employee wellbeing is at the forefront of how we operate. Personally, I love being part of an environment where I know I am recognised for my work, where my mental and physical health is a priority, and that the people I work with care about me and each other. In my time at WRS, I have received promotions that have taken me from an internal recruiter through to Head Of HR and Renewable Energy, which has been a rewarding journey, not without its challenges, but with lots of support all along the way.Emma Upton Head of HR and Renewables
Since joining WRS straight out of University in July 2021, I made the move from Teesside to Manchester to become a part of the Oil and Gas recruitment team as a Trainee Consultant. Working alongside the experienced consultants in the team has been incredibly beneficial, as they provided me with valuable training and industry insights. Thanks to their support, I successfully placed my first job and have since flourished in European recruitment. One aspect I truly appreciate about my journey at WRS is the level of trust and freedom I've been given in my role. This trust in my abilities allowed me to transition into Business Development after just 18 months. I've now been in this role for 8 months and I must say, I absolutely love it. What makes it even better is the clear progression plan laid out for me, providing exciting opportunities to grow our core business and even travel across Europe for client meetings. I feel incredibly fortunate to be in a position where I can take on new challenges and explore exciting opportunities. The support and encouragement from WRS have been instrumental in my personal and professional growth over the past 2 years. I am genuinely excited about what the future holds, watch this space.Lee Hall Business Development Consultant
It was a pleasure to work through WRS as an agency, hassle-free. Money was on time, always responsive to emails, and also periodic communication to confirm if there was anything needed from the consultant. This included check-ins on how the project was going.Compared to other agencies I have worked through, WRS is by far the best and a breath of fresh air.All the best for the future and once again pass my thanks on to all the team.Kevin Durrant Contractor
