Wilkinson Partners / Clients & Candidates / TESTIMONIALS

We are proud of what our Clients and Candidates
have said about us.

“We have been working in partnership with Wilkinson Partners over the last two years to support our growth plans within Indirect Tax. They have built meaningful relationships with my business and taken time to understand what we do and why we believe we are different. This has helped then sell the ‘our firms story' in the market and most importantly they have worked effectively with us to get senior hires "over the line"

“Tom is highly professional, motivated and communicative. He never forgets who the client is and is always focused on ensuring that he achieves the right outcome for all parties. As a result I am more than happy to recommend Tom to anyone looking to recruit in the tax market.” European Tax Director, US Multinational

“The main reason I enjoy working with Wilkinson Partners is because they are consistently honest and genuine. If they don’t think a candidate is appropriate for my team at any point, they will tell me straight away. I always receive clear and accurate information which makes our recruitment that bit easier. They put considerable time and effort into their relationship with our firm and Wilkinson Partners works very hard to understand our business, structure and the needs of each appointment. I would recommend to candidates and businesses alike.”

“Wilkinson Partners were instrumental in assisting with my job search. They were very easy going and informal approach which allowed for easier communication. They know the tax area very well and helped to put the right positions in front of me - they never put a role in front of me that wasn't what I told them I was looking for. They are results driven and helped me to find the right role - not just any role. I have never used a recruiter before and after my experiences with Wilkinson Partners I will use them going forward - both when looking to recruit people to fill roles vacant in my organisation or when I'm looking for my next move.”

Most importantly, Tom had a fantastic personable approach to the process whereby he regularly called to check how things were going and was instrumental on a number of occasions with respect to helping me with my decisions as well as moving the process along in general. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and I am very grateful for his hard work and efforts to secure this position for me.”
