Confidentiality

With over 10 years’ experience in senior appointments, we understand that using an executive search partner can be a sensitive matter for a number of reasons. We are practiced in conducting searches where the client doesn’t wish for their recruitment to become public knowledge nor unnecessarily upset other businesses in the case of headhunting.

FinTech case study

A recently funded FinTech needed to make several appointments to their executive board and we were approached to help because of our focus on the startup space. We conducted a paid advertising campaign along with internal advertising to our own network and carrying out a targeted search. Consequently, we were able to help the client meet a strict deadline for each of the appointments as well as providing a flexible payment plan to work with their funding date.

What our clients say about us

Elizabeth Tweedale
CEO
I've worked with Wilson Grey on a couple of senior roles and it's been a real pleasure. They made it their priority to understand the culture of our business first, which as a scaling company, is paramount. All feedback/guidance is always listened to with open ears, which ensures that each candidate sent through is excellent and a great fit. The process is also brilliant - constant communication means we never feel in the dark. It often feels as though Wilson Grey are simply an extension of our hiring team.
Andy Lulham
COO
Wilson Grey are a pleasure to work with and have provided us with a high quality service. The shortlisted candidates were of a very high standard, on brief, and provided to us in a timely manner. Would definitely recommend.
Pradeep Raman
Director of Digital Solutions
Wilson Grey's consultants are very pro-active and professional. I have worked with them over the last 3 years to fill roles in digital product and design. They have been very resourceful, helping fill the roles with high-quality talent quickly. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great tech recruitment agency.
Thom Bryan
Head of Product
My experience with Wilson Grey has been great. After being quite specific with my requirements I received an amazing, well-advised list of potential candidates to choose from, and subsequently took on a great hire who has fitted into the team very well.
James Hobbs
UK Country Manager
Wilson Grey did a great job working with us on a challenging mandate. Their service was efficient and effective, and ultimately enabled us to successfully hire a high-quality candidate in a timely manner. We would be happy to work with Wilson Grey again as we continue to grow our team in the UK.
Arden Tomison
Founder
Thalamos is trying to deliver an entirely new solution to a market previously underserved by technology. To achieve this, we need best in class client support. Like all start-ups however we’re operating on a tight budget and with limited resources. Essentially that was the brief we gave Wilson Grey.
