What our Staff Think

I joined WRS in 2012 as a Resourcer on the Oil and Gas division. My focus was to source candidates for one of our clients, an Oil & Gas Supermajor. Working alongside WRS’ top biller, I was given the perfect insight as to what is required in order to succeed within recruitment. After 7 months, I was promoted to Consultant and started to build my own desk. I became a Senior Consultant in 2014 having maintained over £100,000 of new business for 12 months, and in late 2015 I was given the opportunity to move into a Business Development role, helping to support our global growth by developing new and existing relationships. I have also been fortunate enough to attend several company holidays, all of which would not be possible without the management team.”

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 started at WRS in 2013 with very little sales experience and no knowledge of the industry I would be recruiting for. Over the last 3 years the support has been phenomenal and after just a couple of months I was able to talk confidently to professionals in the industry all across the world and, more importantly, make my first placements! My colleagues have been great in offering help to get me to my targets. Some of the highlights have been going on WRS holidays abroad from achieving my goals!”

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!”
