Testimonials.

Employer

We recently engaged with Vero to assist with filling a Financial Analyst role and can say that the service we received was second to none. Having recently moved role within the last couple years through Andrew and Becca, it was a no brainer to use them when needing to recruit. The service I got personally when moving was first class, and therefore had no doubts about engaging with them to help fill the vacancy.

As always, Vero are very quick to get to know you and your business and suddenly feels like they are part of your team, rather than working on the outside. They engage and get to know your business and the requirements of the role which is key. There are no rushed parts of the process to get candidates in front of you, Vero ensure they are on your side and carefully select the right candidates for interviews. We were pleased with the three candidates provided to us, of which two were selected for interview and one successfully offered the position.

Although Andrew and Becca are based in Dubai, with their friendly and enthusiastic approach of getting to know you, it feels like they could be sitting next to you in the same room. 100% recommend Vero for your next recruitment drive, and will continue to use Vero going forward.

FINANCE MANAGER

It was a pleasure to work with Andrew and the Vero team on a recent recruitment process for our internal assurance team.

Andrew’s market knowledge is second to none and he quickly identified four exceptional candidates and worked collaboratively with the recruiting team as we took the candidates through the interview process to a final recruitment decision.

Recruiting can be time consuming and stressful, but with Vero’s help this was neither.


GENERAL COUNSEL

We have worked with Andrew and Becca at Vero for at least 10 years and they are our go to company when we are looking for high quality team members. Andrew invests the time to get to know not only the role, but the team dynamics, company culture and the way the teams like to work, this is invaluable when the short list is created as Andrew has ensured that the key criteria is already met.

The recruitment process is smooth from start to finish and the candidate is fully supported throughout the entire process and we are always kept up to date.


CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER

I’m quite new to recruiting and Vero supported me with two vacancies in our Treasury Department.I view Treasury as a niche area so it is quite difficult to find the right candidate. The service received was tailor made and company specific. They demonstrated a great understanding of the company and of the role. The quality of candidates that we received was excellent, we had originally intended to hire 1, but walked away with 2!

Vero were very professional and happy to assist with any follow up queries that we had. They have also been in regular contact since our new recruits started, which demonstrates to me that they genuinely do care about their clients. Would definitely recommend.


TREASURY MANAGER

Vero supported with a number of vacancies in our organisation and the service received felt tailor made and personal. Using Vero felt bespoke, and this is their USP.

I found Vero to be amongst the most professional organisations I have collaborated with. Communication was concise with clear expectations from either party, met within deadlines, that Vero themselves set. In addition to successfully helping fill the roles/vacancies, Vero also provided a range of further industry benchmarking and intel that went above and beyond any service expected.

HR MANAGER

Vero offer far more than just a recruitment service – they are a trusted advisor and partner, and you always know that you are in safe hands even on the most complex resourcing challenges.

We have worked with Vero on several significant senior placements in the last two years, and the care, attention and insight we have had from them through those processes has been invaluable. They have placed some truly value add hires which have been testament to their commitment to make sure their candidates are not just technically sound, but culturally aligned to the business.

I’d have no hesitation in recommending Andrew and Rebecca, and look forward to our next opportunity to work together.

TALENT MANAGER

Professional, perfectly tailored and unique experience from start to finish.

Having gone through this experience, I cannot see us using any other service to support our growing team in the future.

SENIOR FINANCE LEADER

I would thoroughly recommend working with Vero for mid/senior level finance recruitment in the Aberdeen market.

Andrew takes the time to really understand your business and the specifics of the role. He provides frequent progress updates and typically shortlists a high calibre of candidate.

He has broad knowledge of the Aberdeen market and is always available as a sounding board on recruitment matters.

A truly professional recruitment partner.

FINANCE DIRECTOR

Vero provided a highly bespoke and very efficient service as always.

Our chosen candidates have proven to be a perfect fit for the team (both from an experience and skills perspective as well as individuality which can be equally important).

Andrew understands the company and takes the time to understand his candidates securing people that can hit the ground running and add immediate value.

A great service and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.


HEAD OF CORPORATE DEVELOPMENT

Exceptional service throughout the whole recruitment process.

Would highly recommend Vero and would not use anyone else now.

FINANE DIRECTOR

Having dealt with Vero in the past, they were always going to be our first choice when it came to recruiting … so we were straight on the phone to Andrew for our latest recruitment campaign.

Andrew and Rebecca provide an exceptional service from start to finish, they do a great job matching candidates to client and we were all impressed with the high level of candidates that were short-listed for interview. Their passion for recruitment shines through and the service they provide comes second to none.

REGIONAL FINANCE MANAGER

From the moment we engaged with Andrew, we knew that he would do a great job.

The time, effort, and detail that Andrew and Becca put into the background of a role, candidate search, shortlisting and interview prep for the candidate is next to none.

Andrew's openness and honesty about timelines of the process and what the process looks like with Vero, let us know exactly what to expect and when to expect it.

The time taken to speak with the Hiring Managers to find out the exact needs of the role, along with the detail gone into finding fits for this along with the company culture, ensured that the shortlisting gave us the cream of the crop to choose from.

Looking forward to working with Andrew and Becca on my next finance role.

MSP RECRUITMENT COORDINATOR

I have worked with Vero for some time now and find them extremely helpful, the quality of candidates have met expectations and have successfully filled all positions.


Feedback and responses are given throughout the process, very professional service. Would highly recommend.


HR MANAGER

Our experience with Vero was far and above anything ever experienced with recruitment in our forty plus years in business.

Andrew took the time to understand our business and culture, providing us with a selection of perfect candidates for the role. The down to earth, genuine knowledgeable approach and attention to detail was very much appreciated.

We would highly recommend Vero for anyone looking for higher level finance positions.


FINANCE DIRECTOR

"I knew from personal experience as a candidate that working with Andrew was a great experience – he takes the time to consider your skills, aspirations and personal goals in order to match you to the right role.

When I found myself on the other side and hiring, I immediately approached Vero, knowing that the service would be professional and considered.

He and Becca do a fantastic job, and I would highly recommend Vero to both hiring managers and candidates looking for the next step in their career."

Head of Corporate Finance

"Andrew and Becca have worked with me on a number of positions and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. They ooze professionalism in everything they do.

Their approach is refreshing and in a league of their own. Andrew invests time to understand the business culture, the individual role and the personalities in the team in order to present the best candidates. I haven’t worked with anyone else that cares as much as Andrew about finding the right ‘fit’ for both the candidate and the business both in terms of skills and personality.

Vero’s seamless process from start to finish has resulted in a successful outcome on every occasion."

Group Finance Manager

“I have known Andrew for a while and have always found him extremely professional and easy to deal with, and very knowledgeable of the local market.

It is the first class communication throughout the recruitment process which sets Vero’s service apart; Andrew is always available to deal with any questions and to advise throughout the recruitment process, and he responds extremely quickly.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Vero to anybody else involved in this part of the industry.”

Head of Internal Audit

“I am delighted with the service the Vero team have provided us over the past 18-24 months.

I have had several meetings with Andrew and he has taken the time to get to know me, our business and our culture. Andrew and Becca have done a fantastic job in providing us with candidates from a variety of backgrounds.

In addition the communication from Andrew both in written and verbal form has been first class. The service is unique to what I have seen from others and I would highly recommended utilising Vero for mid-senior finance appointments”

Finance Director

"Having used Vero for a number of senior finance appointments, I have always found Andrew delivers a thorough, comprehensive and diligent recruitment service. Andrew really listens to what the requirements are and provides a shortlist of candidates well suited to both the role in terms of experience and personality.

Andrew invests the time in gaining an understanding of the role and the culture of the company he is recruiting for, and it is evident that he spends time getting to know the candidates to ensure he puts forward only the most suitable candidates for each role.

The level of service is exceptional and really sets Vero apart."

Financial Controller

“The Vero team did an excellent job for us.

They really understood the role, and the culture of our company. They selected some great candidates, from a variety of backgrounds, and we were delighted with the successful appointee.

We cannot recommend them highly enough.”

Group CFO

"Vero’s approach to recruitment is very refreshing and the ability to have an open and honest conversation about candidates or opportunities is unique.

As a client, Vero’s approach to understanding the business and the opportunity was second to none and resulted in 3 excellent candidates who could have all been hired. They matched the brief and culture of the business with candidates who not only could do the job but had the right personality to fit into the team very well. This resulted in a positive experience for all concerned.

As a candidate, they are always available to discuss market conditions, potential opportunities and understand my career goals and targets. This continues to ensure a positive relationship and that there is no wasted time going through irrelevant opportunities."

Finance Director

"It was great to work with you. It is clear you have a understanding of the finance market in Aberdeen both from a client and candidate perspective. I was impressed by the speed with which you came up with three candidates who were well aligned to the brief, including a range of backgrounds.

In addition, the level and frequency of updates throughout the engagement were spot on. I would recommend your services to others, especially in a tight market where recruitment efforts via LinkedIn or equivalent can prove to be underwhelming."

Finance Director

"From start to finish the service from Vero was flawless.

True guidance and support from the outset, coupled with a deep and thorough understanding of his craft, Andrew made me feel at ease despite the fact we'd never worked together before.

Andrew is genuine and I knew he was truly focussed on finding me the right individual for my team, knowing we had been let down in the past.

Andrew and Becca have a unique offering, which is difficult for me to fully quantify on paper. I will be recommending Vero to my peers when they seek to recruit, or search for their next opportunity."

CFO

"Andrew and Becca really do have a knack for knowing who to put in front of you. Looking for a CA, I knew I'd be able to find really strong technical accountants, but finding someone who fit our culture was always going to be a struggle. Or so I thought.

The three candidates Vero presented fit the brief perfectly, and had the 'wow factor' at interview. So much so, we've hired two of them.

Replacing myself within the business was an emotional process, with added pressure to get it right.

I know I'm in safe hands with Vero."

CFO

"Best in class !

I cannot stress how easy and effective Recruitment is with Vero. Working as an extension of your business, Andrew and Becca make the whole process from understanding what the business needs to scoping the role plus presenting and prepping candidates for interview appear seamless…..however as an ex recruiter I know that this is never as straightforward as it seems!

Always a professional, friendly service from Andrew & Becca who effortlessly manage and exceed your expectations, plus their knowledge of the marketplace and candidates is phenomenal.

Vero are the epitome of how recruitment should be carried out for both the employer and the candidate. Highly recommend Vero you will not be disappointed!"

HR Director/Consultant

‘I have worked with Andrew and Becca for a number of years, both as a Finance professional looking to advance my career and as a hiring manager looking to attract talented professionals for my team.

Their approach is genuinely different, they care about each and every individual they meet and take the time to understand individual and business motivations and personalities. They consider all aspects of an individual and team fit not just a CV and a job spec.

Their pre-screening approach has provided me with high quality and targeted candidates that have made the choice of hire difficult. A great position to be in while saving hiring managers valuable time in a busy and ever changing environment as we deal with the pressures of COVID-19.

Their personal and engaging manner is refreshing and inspiring and there genuinely is an 'above and beyond' manner about Vero.

They make you feel like part of the extended family and as such have now become a necessity in my life for my own personal career development and for managing my team requirements. Boundless energy and enthusiasm combined with elite professionalism.

What more could you ask for?’

Head of Finance

Having worked with Vero both as a client and a candidate, I can confidently say that the service they provide is second to none. Andrew and Becca have a genuine passion for getting to know people and businesses, and their holistic approach to recruitment is a breath of fresh air.

Finance Director

"Straight forward and efficient process. Andrew listened to what we were looking for, understood the job brief and provided a shortlist of candidates that met our brief and requirements.

We have been disappointed in the past with other agencies proving long lists of the same candidates.

The process from start to finish was efficient, even whilst in "lockdown" mode."

CFO

"Andrew was professional from the outset of our working relationship to find a suitable Accountant to join our organisation. The process was well thought through, I was impressed by the time Andrew took to understand our business and the type of person we were looking for, which was quite a niche set of skills. The process was seamless from start to finish and we couldn’t be happier with the candidate we have secured. I look forward to working with Vero again in the future."

HR Advisor

"We have been working with Andrew for more than 4 years and his service has always been excellent. Andrew’s understanding of the business needs and culture of the organisation enables him to provide us with high calibre applicants. Andrew has always been professional, honest and reliable and I would not hesitate in recommending Vero to anyone."

Head of Human Resources

"I have used Andrew for recruitment for many years and have found him to be a highly valued and trustworthy recruiter.

He has an expert knowledge of the Finance market and takes time to understand your specific needs and organisational culture before providing a very selective and well researched shortlist. This thorough approach ensures that the recruitment process is as targeted and efficient as possible and I can thoroughly recommend him."

Finance Director

"I have worked closely with Andrew on a number of successful finance placements and have always found him to be consistent in terms of the quality of candidates that he presents. It is clear that Andrew takes great care and time to build meaningful relationships with candidates to fully understand their career aspirations and motivations. Andrew also takes pride in sourcing the right candidates for his clients using his expert knowledge of accountancy recruitment. Personally, I have also found Andrew to be hugely supportive to me in my own career as a trusted individual within my professional network. I have no doubt that Andrew has built similar relationships with others in his network which, in my opinion will give him the ability to find exceptional candidates.”

HR Business Partner

"Andrew’s pragmatic and considered approach makes him the recruitment partner of choice for candidates and clients. A great listener who takes the time to understand issues and devise a tailored solution, shaped by his technical expertise, interpersonal skills and sound judge of character. His open and transparent communication is refreshing and for that reason I have no hesitation in reaching out to Andrew to seek his opinion. Andrew is a valuable business and recruitment partner for anyone in the accounting and finance sector"

CFO

"For over ten years I have relied on Andrew and Becca for my finance recruitment. I consider them an extension to my team and trust them implicitly. They understand the culture and requirements of the organisation and have an unrivalled understanding of the oil and gas finance market in the area. A combination that make them my go to team."

HR Manager

“I have worked with Andrew for many years when I needed to recruit a new team member. Andrew understands my requirements and ensures that the candidates that are selected are in line with the brief. Andrew is incredibly trustworthy and I appreciate the honest and open communication that you can have with him. This was the first time I recruited with Vero – what a great experience! The process, overviews and delivery were at the top level of professionalism. Andrew and Becca have built a great brand in Vero that solves all the usual challenges when recruiting – Congratulations!”
