What our Staff Think

I am one of the co-founders of WRS, growing our Global Mining and Global Construction division from infancy to what it is today. Over the last 8 years, WRS has provided me with the platform to grow, from managing a small team of consultants to a Director managing several divisions. WRS has provided me with both internal and external training (both classroom-based and practical, hands-on training). This has facilitated my growth both as a manager and a business developer for the company. We have created an atmosphere which we feel differs from a typical recruitment office, one where creativity and autonomy are greatly valued and rewarded.”

I joined WRS with no sales experience at all and was placed within the Middle East Construction division. Within my first year, I have been given the flexibility to explore other parts of the world within the construction sector and now cover construction recruitment on an international basis. WRS has given me the training and support to enable me to work confidentially in speaking to experienced people in the industry and in turn bringing on new clients, candidates and making placements. The WRS team are a great group of people to be around with everyone offering support and guidance when needed - not just in the beginning but even now.”

When I first came to WRS I worked as an Accounts Assistant. I came from a completely different background and decided on a career change, which is what brought me here. Over the past 2 and a half years I have been lucky enough to study for my Level 4 Association of Accounting Technicians course, funded by WRS alongside my work - this has been instrumental in my personal development and has allowed me to progress in a career I really enjoy.”

I have been working here at WRS since 2014 when I was looking for a career change and thought the fast-paced nature and great earning potential of Maritime recruitment sounded suited to my goals. Initially, I resourced for my colleagues, which enabled me to learn the industry inside out – then I began building my own client base. Last year I was offered the opportunity to move into Account Management off the back of a large Managed Service contract win for the business. Now I spend my days managing all of the crewing for a number of offshore vessels. I love the fast-paced, reactive nature of my job and get on really well with my clients and seafarers alike!”
