Both a client and a candidate; I wouldn't use anyone other than Vero

I have had the pleasure of working with Andrew and Becca as both client and candidate and cannot fault their approach from either perspective.

Vero take time to understand individuals and organisations alike and as a result they find the best fit.

As a client I would rely on Vero to present me with exceptional candidates ideally suited to the position and as a candidate I fully trust that I would only be presented with opportunities that are right for me.

Ultimately, the approach Vero take to the recruitment process is unique and sets them apart from other recruiters. I wouldn't use anyone other than Vero!

Above anything ever experienced with recruitment in our forty plus years in business

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.

Changing lives, not just careers

"Both Andrew and Becca pride themselves on providing an unashamedly selective service and their quality shines through from the moment you have your first discussion with them.

The time and consideration given to each candidate when discussing a role is above and beyond anything else I've ever experienced. Andrew took the time to really get to know me and what it was I was looking for and therefore only presented roles that required serious consideration as they were too good to pass by. In my experience this has meant a new role which has turned out to not only change my career, but also my life for the better.

The support provided in the run up to interview and throughout the offer stage, to commencing the new position was second to none. I particularly like the personal touch of the continued contact after starting the new role to ensure everything is going smoothly.

Cannot recommend Vero recruitment and Andrew and Becca highly enough, you will definitely be in safe hands!"

A perfectly tailored service

"My experience with Vero recruitment was excellent from start to finish, with a personal touch that really made a difference.

From my initial in depth meeting with Andrew, I felt that he was genuinely driven to match me with the right job for me, while at the same time finding the right person for the company. The jobs put my way were a match for my skills and for what I wanted, and I greatly appreciated the helpful videos and pep talks before interviews, which helped me prepare. The quality of the jobs specifications was also great, which also distinguished the service from other agencies.

I really can’t fault the service I received, and I felt very well supported throughout from interviews to finalising contracts and starting at my new job.

Vero are specialists at what they do and give a perfectly tailored service."

They helped me get my spark back

I came to Vero following a sustained period of work induced burnout. I was desperately seeking a new role outwith my previous company who I'd been with for nearly 13 years - an extremely daunting place to be.

From my very first conversation I felt at ease and could tell that Becca and Andrew would make this highly intimidating process as smooth and pain free as possible.

It was made very clear from the beginning that they cared passionately about finding the role and company which would provide me the best foundation to help get my "spark" back.

I'd been contacted by multiple recruiters via LinkedIn previously but following a personal recommendation which highlighted the unique exclusivity of Vero I opted to reach out and I'm so glad I did.

The support provided from application, interview preparation, job offer, acceptance and even as far as checking in to see how it's going a few weeks in is second to none.

I hope to continue this relationship with Becca and Andrew for many more years and have recommended Vero to many colleagues/friends since.

CLIENT

Outstanding service from start to finish

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.

Flawless, difficult for me to fully quantify on paper

"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."

Successfully filled all positions

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.

Cannot recommend them highly enough

“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.”

Two of the nicest people

"Speaking with Andrew and Becca at Vero made a very daunting, albeit exciting, process much easier. Whilst not actively looking for a new opportunity I had been following their social media and got in touch tentatively when one of their opportunities caught my eye.

From the first conversation with Andrew, he helped guide me through the unknown of the recruitment process and ultimately helped find me in my role. Nothing ever felt like too much of a silly question to ask or felt too much of a nuisance and I felt very able to simply call and chat through anything I needed – unfortunately for Andrew it was never a quick call.

I’d recommend anyone who is maybe feeling apprehensive at pushing the button on finding out more about a role or simply thinking about their next challenge to give them a call. Honestly, two of the nicest people to have dealt with."

Accountant

CANDIDATE

A completely different experience

"Thank you for your support and encouragement throughout this process. As you know, I was very nervous about moving from my firm and the added pressure of COVID and home working was a real concern.

You made the whole process so easy for me; I knew from the first call that the experience was going to be completely different.

My advice to anyone else in my position looking for a new challenge - speak to Vero. Andrew only presented me with opportunities which were a perfect match to my requirements, he prepared me thoroughly for interview and was always on hand to answer my questions and discuss any concerns. Every step was agreed upon in advance and I felt that I was in control, and never pressurised."

Financial Controller

CANDIDATE

Outstanding, the trust and connection was instant.

"The experience I've had with Vero has been outstanding.

I first contacted Andrew when I was considering leaving my previous role and we were able to have a very frank and honest conversation. The trust and connection was instant. I was able to openly talk about what I was looking for and he was forthcoming with help and advice.

When he approached me about the role that I am now in, the relationship that we had built meant that I knew he had carefully considered this opportunity before bringing it to me. You really get a sense that Vero strive to find the best fit for both the candidate and the client - not just to fill a role as quickly as possible.

I am pleased to say that the new role is going very well and I think that is testament to Andrew's ability to match a candidate to an environment in which they can thrive."

Business Analyst

CANDIDATE

A pleasure and a privilege

"The care that Andrew and Becca put into finding the perfect role for me was evident from the start.

They aren’t just interested in the role title but in the fit as a whole, from my career aspirations to my personal circumstances in order to make sure that they found the perfect fit for me.

Whilst other firms may inundate you with multiple roles, with Vero it really is quality over quantity, so much so that I found the perfect job with the first role they sent me. The level of support they provide through the application process really goes above and beyond, it not only helped put me at ease but also improved my confidence.

I cannot recommend Vero enough, it was a pleasure and a privilege working with them."

The service is unique

“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

I'm so glad I placed my trust in Vero

I’m a recently qualified accountant with a background in audit. Unlike most, I had originally planned to build a career in practice and had no intention to make a move to industry after qualifying. Deciding to explore new opportunities was a huge and daunting step for me but I’d heard good things about Andrew and Vero from ex-colleagues. I knew that if I was to place my trust in any recruiter, it was going to be Andrew. And I’m SO glad I did!

As a candidate, there is nothing worse than receiving generic LinkedIn messages from recruiters around the country, looking to sell a job that has no relevance to you. With Vero, I was only ever presented with opportunities that truly suited me, both skills-wise and culturally. Andrew took the time to get to know me as a person and what I was looking for in my career. As a result, I felt completely at ease heading into interviews.

I am so excited to start my new job shortly and can’t thank Andrew enough for all his support, patience and encouragement. No offence, but I’m hoping that I won’t need their services again for a long time after the care taken in matching me with my new role and employer!

But, if the time ever comes, Vero would be my first (and likely only!) point of call and I’d recommend them to any of my peers without a moment of hesitation.

FINANCIAL ACCOUNTANT

CANDIDATE

Always my first choice

I have been helped by Andrew twice in my career. Once for a staff job in a major operator in 2016 and once in 2022 for a temporary role with a different operator.

Both times Andrew has been incredibly professional, understanding and helpful. I simply can’t praise this company enough and their experience shines through all of the dealings with them.

I would always use them as my first choice - whether recruiting or job searching myself. Great service and always a pleasure to deal with them.

E&P FORECASTING ANALYST

CANDIDATE

They will not let you down

I have known Andrew professionally for over 15 years now and he has placed me in 4 positions during my career and I believe that my career and recruitment requirements are best served by Vero.

The support he has given me through my career has been second to none. From all the way through the interview stage, to help with interview preparation to supplying helpful videos to help prepare for interviews to helpful discussions before interviews which made me more confident and prepared for anything that was presented to me at the interview stage to starting my new position was second to none. I believe with his help over the years he has helped mould me into the finance professional that I am today.

I cannot recommend Andrew and Vero Recruitment enough they give a very professional and personal services and you will not find a more trustworthy and honest recruitment consultants anywhere in the industry. They will not let you down and you will not be disappointed.

FINANCE MANAGER

CLIENT

They gave us the cream of the crop

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

CANDIDATE

More of a confidant than a recruiter

"The Vero way is refreshingly different. The approach and treatment I have received from Andrew has been exceptional. Andrew takes the time to get to know both you as a person and you as a finance candidate.

I've seen Andrew as more of a confidant than recruitment agent and i'm exceptionally thankful for his input and advice over the last 9 months. I received only relevant opportunities which were accompanied with a detailed conversation.

There is comfort in knowing Vero will only work with companies who share their values, meaning increased confidence in the potential future employer from the start of the process. I recommend Vero to anyone looking for a role in finance, or hoping to recruit in finance and recommend they be your first call."

Finance Manager

CANDIDATE

The gold standard in recruitment

"I reached out to Andrew in early January 2020 and we had an initial conversation outlining the type of opportunities that would interest me. Immediately I had a positive feeling about the process - one that I hadn’t felt before from meeting other professional recruiters.

I was specific in the type of Job I was looking for; from the job role to the structure and values of the business. Throughout the year, Andrew and I had constant dialogue regarding potential opportunities and the ongoing recruitment landscape. These were informal conversations which would entail a coffee in the park or a quick catch-up call - but importantly, every interaction showed Andrew was invested in the process to ensure my next job was a perfect fit.

Once an opportunity arose which met my criteria, Andrew was very efficient in presenting my CV to the prospective management team. I felt he did it in a manner that was honest to who I am while highlighting the qualities that I would bring to their team.

This meant when going for the interviews I felt that the CFO and CEO had a clear picture of the type of individual I was, allowing me to build and further demonstrate these qualities in the interviews.

Upon receiving the offer of employment, I felt Andrew handled my contract negotiations with impartiality, ensuring the terms were right for both myself and the business. The process of finding a new job took 11 months but the whole time I felt confident and reassured that Andrew was passionate, diligent and determined in getting the right fit for my specific requirements.

Andrew is the gold standard in recruitment, and I am so thankful I reached out to him as I don’t believe I would be moving into such a role without his involvement."

You are informed, involved and consulted all along the way

“The end to end process with Vero is tailored to the individual. As such not only does it result in a role which aligns to your skill set and fulfils your aspirations but ensures that you are informed, involved and consulted all along the way. The combination of such a forward thinking approach to recruitment combined with a personable and considered delivery results in achieving the best possible of outcomes."

Completely different to other recruitment firms

"After having an initial discussion with Andrew in March, it was clear this service was going to be completely different to my experiences with other recruitment firms. Andrew took the time to understand me, not only as a professional but as a person too. This ultimately resulted in the first role that Andrew sent being the perfect one.

The level of support and guidance throughout the whole application process is exceptional. Recognising this was to be my first move in my career, Andrew took the time to understand and ease my apprehensions and really boosted my confidence throughout the process. He maintained regular and honest communication throughout which was both refreshing and reassuring.

Vero is a true value-add firm, checking in and providing recruitment and local market insight even when not engaged with you on a specific role application process.

Going forward, Vero will unquestionably be my recruitment firm of choice and one I would recommend in a heartbeat."

Finance Lead

I felt consulted...not sold to

"I'm often approached by other recruiters via LinkedIn, however from the initial approach I could tell Vero was different.

The service was highly tailored and personalised to me, at no point did I feel like a number. I was presented with two opportunities over the period we worked together and both were an ideal fit, I felt consulted, not sold to.

I started my new position as Finance Manager two weeks ago and I'm confident I've made the right choice. The CFO and I share an open communication style and it's refreshing. Thank you both so much for your guidance, support and advice."

CLIENT

Boundless energy and enthusiasm combined with elite professionalism

‘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

CLIENT

Great to work with

"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

CLIENT

I know I'm in safe hands with Vero

"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

CLIENT

Second to none

"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."

Best in class

"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!"

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.”

Andrew and Becca were very hands on and always available for a call and took the time to help prepare me for interviews which really helped calm my nerves and boost my confidence.

I was very fortunate that Andrew managed to place me in the perfect role."

Thank you

"The service received from Vero was exceptional.

Andrew and Becca both took the time to get to know me as a person and learn about my past roles to enable them to send me relevant and suitable jobs. Since Vero specialise in Accounting jobs I felt confident that they had the knowledge and experience to find me the perfect job.

Having trained and worked in practice for almost ten years I was anxious to take a step into a different industry but Andrew provided me with detailed job descriptions to help make the decision easier. The job specifications always contained so much information about the company, role and benefits that I found lacked in potential roles received from other recruitment agencies. Andrew was always willing to help with any questions and also helped me prepare for any interviews.

Thank you for helping me take the next step in my career."

Very easy to work with

"I found Vero Recruitment very easy to deal with from start to finish. Andrew took the time to understand my profile and the sort of role that would interest me. After the initial discussion, I felt Andrew only sent on roles he considered would match what I was looking for, rather than sending on all roles available. This shows Vero take the time to focus on relevant opportunities that would work for both the company and the potential candidate.

Throughout the interview process, it was clear Andrew only works with companies who share similar values to Vero. Andrew provided a very detailed job profile which included company information as well as detailed job descriptions - a very professional and detailed job pack. Andrew maintained conversation from the application to interviews to the offer stage. At no point did I feel pressured throughout the process.

Vero is definitely a company I would use again, whether it from a personal point of view or encouraging the company I work for to continue to use going forward."

I felt cared for

"Working with Vero was such a different experience.

Through every step of the process I felt cared for, with Andrew focussing on what was right for ME personally, rather than simply filling vacancies.

The role I initially applied for went to another candidate, however the way Andrew handled the situation made me feel confident enough to accept their counter-proposal without hesitation.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Vero to any of my peers, as I'm confident they have a candidates best interests at heart, always."

They care so much about their candidates

"The service provided from Vero is nothing short of brilliant! I have never worked with a recruitment company that care so much about their candidates or placing the right people in the right positions.

I had known Andrew for quite some time before placing me in this role. Andrew has always taken the time to get to know me and my family and what my values and strengths are. Hence when the position I am placed in now came up, Andrew knew it was the right fit for me.

He was 100% there for me through the whole process, giving me a more than detailed description about the role and the company that I was being put forward for. Having a meeting with me before my first interview, which helped me focus on what I was going to say at the interview. Most importantly Andrew knew my strengths and told me just to be honest why I wanted to work for the company. Andrew was there for me through the whole process, it’s the personal touch that matters and Andrew and Becca certainly provide that service, before during and after the recruitment process.

I would highly recommend anyone working with Vero whether you are a candidate or an employer, a more professional and personal service you wont find anywhere else."

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!

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."

CFO

CANDIDATE

They put my needs above everything else

"As soon as Vero Recruitment reached out to me and arranged a video call to discuss my requirements with the next move in my career, I immediately felt a personal touch that no other recruiter had offered.

Andrew was very supportive and honest and I felt he put my needs and wants above anything else with the roles he put me forward for and advice he gave. We would also discuss the role face to face (virtually) prior to the interview which would put me at ease and give me that confidence to go into the interview being the best version of myself.

I can only thank Andrew and Vero for helping to secure the next step in my finance career, and would highly recommend them to any finance professionals looking to make a similar move."

Finance Manager

CLIENT

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."

HR Advisor

CANDIDATE

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."

Senior Accountant

CANDIDATE

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."

Second to none

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.

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."

For over ten years I have relied on Andrew and Becca

"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."

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."

Committing to their values

"Vero's competitive advantage lies in committing to its values.

Many people have praised you for your consistency in delivering a quality and personal service, but I think the secret lies in always reinventing yourself/the business through another dimension, to find the motivation and the purpose to provide the same level of service.

From our interactions, I find the things that should be present in all the other recruiters, but unfortunately they're not: good understanding of the role specs and how it fits into the wider company strategy/growth path, being approachable for the interview prep and answering any concerns, following up on the result and listening to the candidate's feedback to learn more about what drives him/her (it's always easier with candidates who know what they want!, if not, leading them to realise themselves what they want), providing regular updates while waiting for the employer's decision etc. I think it's building up the trust and just as with a new role, you know pretty soon if you click or not with the person sitting in front of you/on the other end of the line. As I experienced, even if you know the role is right, you still need that emotional comfort to let go and start a new path, it does help when there is trust.

I am recommending Vero to anyone looking to change jobs, I'm hoping once they have a taste of your way of recruiting, they'll be able to request/expect a better service elsewhere."

Refreshing

"My experience with Vero has been a positive one throughout. Andrew's personal approach to recruitment is really refreshing.

The support I received in preparation for the interview was invaluable and thereafter I was kept up to date every step of the way.

What Andrew and Becca are doing with Vero is unique to recruitment in Aberdeen making them really stand out as being different. They strike the balance of being extremely knowledgeable and professional while maintaining a friendly and understanding manner."

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."

Exceptional approach to recruitment

"Vero’s approach to recruitment is exceptional. Throughout the process I was deeply impressed by the way in which they took time to fully understand and articulate the motivations for change. 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."

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."

Finance Director

CLIENT

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".
