“Victoria has been my exclusive recruiter for a number of years and has assisted me with the recruitment of several members of my team across legal, compliance and company secretarial disciplines.  I have found her to be extremely knowledgeable about the market and she helped manage my expectations around the likely candidate pool and salary expectations.  What sets Victoria and AY apart from other recruitment agencies is that they take a real interest in learning about the business and culture in addition to the requirements of the role – there is a maturity and sensitivity there that I have struggled to find with other recruiters and Victoria has a real talent for finding the ‘perfect match’.  I am confident that I will always be provided with a shortlist of the best candidates for any roles from both a technical as well as a cultural and ‘team fit’ perspective.”

“I worked with Victoria at AY to appoint an additional lawyer into our team. Victoria took the time to really understand the role of a lawyer in our business and how that shaped our requirements. Victoria met and vetted all the candidates before sending them to an interview and provided a good overview of each individual in terms of fit and experience for the role. We got the right candidate for our business and both us and our new team member could not be happier with the result.”

“AY offers a refreshingly different approach to many recruitment agencies. From the first contact, AY offered practical and expert advice on my job search. It impressed me that unlike other agencies, AY was as interested in finding me the best role for my skills, experience and personality, as much as finding the best candidate for the client. The whole experience was made easy by AY’s friendly manner and ability to understand the industry from the perspective of the candidate. I would certainly use AY’s services again should I be looking for another opportunity. They matched me perfectly for an in-house role, which I thoroughly enjoy.”

“As a candidate, I know I will be represented appropriately.  AY clearly know their clients very well and will manage expectations reliably, both with me and with any organisation I apply to.  They are refreshingly honest and they really seem to care about introducing me to roles that they sincerely feel will suit my personality, experience and long term goals.”

General Counsel,
Logistics Business

“I worked with Victoria at AY on my recent search having had limited experience (and being apprehensive) of working with recruitment consultants.  I met with Victoria and she took the time to really understand what I was looking to achieve in a move and the type of organisation and culture which was suited to my experience, personality and objectives.  Victoria was very honest and she kept me well informed and supported me throughout the process in relation to my application, interview preparation and subsequent job offer.   In particular, I felt that AY really tried to find the best possible match for me and their clients. I am delighted with my new role.  I highly recommend AY.”
