The whole process runs like clockwork

“The breadth of experience that the Vero team have built up over the years most definitely shines though, the whole process runs like clockwork and their model of placing roles on an exclusive basis really helps add that personal touch. Andrew is genuinely interested to find out what it is you’re looking for in a role so that you can work together to find a new one that’s just right for you, his advice is spot on! Would I recommend Vero Recruitment? In. A. Heartbeat!

P.S. it’s pronounced “vey-ro” as in “pharaoh”...although maybe it should be “vee-ro” as in “hero” because that’s what they are!"

A level of professionalism and care I’ve never experienced before

"Andrew was the most supportive recruiter I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

I was always at ease speaking with Andrew and he displayed a level of professionalism and care I’ve never experienced before when working with recruiters.

Andrew had clearly taken the time to understand his clients’ requirements and from first contacting me, he maintained regular contact to provide as much information, support and advice as he could. He is a great listener and made sure he knew not only my career aspirations but also my personal situation to ensure any roles he brought to me would excite me.

The team at Vero are extremely approachable and continued to keep in touch with me throughout the process, and quickly supported me with any queries I had. Having now secured my new role through Vero, Andrew has kept in touch with me regularly to make sure I am happy and settling in.

Andrew and Becca are evidently passionate about what they do and their modern approach is genuine, honest, personal and refreshing. I wouldn’t hesitate to turn to them again should I need to, or recommend them to anyone looking for an expert in financial recruitment.

Thank you Andrew for your support and friendship."

The process was seamless...we couldn't be happier

"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."

It's that personal touch that really makes Vero stand out

"Deciding to change jobs at anytime of your life is a daunting process, you feel torn between the comfort of what you know and wanting something different, worrying if it will be the right move for you. Working with Vero really alleviated this worry for me. Andrew gets to know you as a person and doesn't just send you every available position which may loosely fit your experience. He really looks at the bigger picture, considering the culture of the business and your personality, the team fit and the prospects for you within the role. It's that personal touch that really makes Vero stand out from other recruitment agencies.

In my previous job moves I have used agents and although they were never negative experiences, working with Vero just felt different. The whole process went smoothly, I was kept up to date throughout the whole process. You really get the impression that Andrew and Becca really care about your move and making sure it is the right fit for all parties."

The most trustworthy recruiter I've ever worked with

"It was clear from the second I started dealing with Andrew that the approach Vero takes to recruitment is totally different.

Not only does Andrew have a great deal of experience of recruiting within the accounting field, making him an expert at picking the right talent, he is also an expert judge of character which enables him to find the right company for his candidates or the other way around.

Andrew’s approach is super friendly which makes him a delight to deal with. He is transparent and honest which makes him the most trustworthy recruiter I have ever worked with. He also made himself available prior to the 2 interviews that I had with the company which was super helpful in preparing to meet my new employer.

It is my view that the way Andrew does business is the way every other recruiter should do business as well."

Vero ARE different

"My experience of a traditional recruitment firm is that they are aware of some key 'buzz' words and phrases, that these specifics are on your CV, and the recruiter will match these to a position. Vero are different. They have a deeper understanding of the finance discipline; and it's clear they recognise how the sector works and how each position fits into the wider picture within a business/team.

From a candidate perspective, Andrew took the time to understand my technical capability, strengths and my planned career path. After our first meeting Andrew kept in touch regularly and then only proposed a role to me which was a very close match to what we had discussed. This person centred approach made me self-reflect on 'what does success look like' and his guidance and trust was pivotal to finding a position that aligned with this vision.

Becca and Andrew are passionate and driven recruitment consultants with a concept that will create unrivalled business partnerships between clients and candidates."

Efficient process from start to finish

"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."

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."

It was joy to partner with Andrew

"When looking to re-locate, finding an employer that was a good fit for me as an individual was of immense importance. This is something that Andrew's person-centred approach accounted for as he took plenty of time to understand me and my values. It was joy to partner with Andrew through a process where it felt like finding the best fit, rather than the lowest common denominator, was his goal."

Andrew and Becca equally have a clear passion for what they do, and their ability to offer guidance in a trusting manner is a refreshing approach. I felt communication and guidance was transparent and honest which is key, and I can tell that they genuinely care about the long term relationship with their clients."

Excellent service again

"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."

Recommended as THE experts in financial recruitment

“I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with Andrew over the past seven years, and have no hesitation in recommending him as THE expert in financial recruitment. Andrew has been instrumental in helping my career develop through the last two moves I have made, and remains an extremely trustworthy source of advice and guidance in my career to this day. My last move was a difficult decision to make given market conditions, but Andrew helped me realise that remaining passive in a job with few development opportunities was not where I wanted to be. As a result I moved into a much more challenging role, in a more dynamic organisation, and have since taken advantage of fantastic career development opportunities.

Over the years Andrew has never approached me to discuss a role that wasn’t in some way attractive, and I think that’s the mark of a results driven recruitment professional who takes a genuine interest in his clients.

More recently, I have worked with Andrew to recruit new candidates into my current team, and have seen first-hand the way in which he can leverage his extensive network to source candidates who are not known to other recruitment firms, and who may not even be actively looking to change role. His approach in understanding our organisation and specific team requirements has led to candidates being proposed on a very selective basis. Personally, I firmly believe that my personal career and recruitment needs are best served by Andrew and Vero.”

Highly valued and trustworthy recruiter

"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."

Successful finance placements

"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.”

Vero’s professional yet friendly manner put me at ease immediately

"I contacted Andrew when I was searching for a position in the Financial sector. He was very accommodating in setting up an online consultation with me. As a professional moving to the UK from abroad, he gave me a clear idea of what to expect of the industry in Aberdeen and Edinburgh, something I wouldn’t have been able to gain without his insight. I recommend Vero Recruitment for anyone who is looking for a personalised and in-depth service".
