We will be working with Alan and AWS again in the future.

AWS sourced the CEO for OneKind and their assistance was invaluable. The calibre of candidates they were able to present was very high. They were also able to take the time to provide advice to potential candidates to ensure that they were all equally briefed in preparing for their presentations to the Board.

Sara Bannerman, Chair, OneKind

Here at Erskine we have been extremely pleased with the staff we have recruited through AWS in the areas of Fundraising and Marketing, and I would certainly recommend them highly.

Head of External Relations, Erskine, Glasgow

We recently used the services of AWS Recruitment for the recruitment of a new post at Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home. Alan made a real effort to really get to know our organisation, the team and our vision which in turn meant he was able to find us an excellent pool of candidates for interview. Alan is charismatic and professional and I very much look forward to working with him again in the future.
