What our clients say

This is what our clients have to say about the Walmsley Wilkinson experience.

I have had the pleasure of working with the Walmsley Wilkinson team for the past 12 years. During this period of time I have been both an internal customer whilst at United Technologies Corporation and am now an external customer in my current role for Sherwin Williams Company. The relationship that I have built with the partners is one of trust, shared eye for talent and a focus on high calibre delivery. Linda and Taryn provide a quality service with a high level of customer care and a true want to understand the business context. The candidate care they provide is a strong extension of what we would provide via our internal resourcing team and that is key to protecting our brand in the marketplace.

Caroline Hudson
Senior HR Director - EMEAI, The Sherwin Williams Company

Linda is the rare talent acquisition professional who can manage volume staffing at multiple levels of the organization, c-suite appointments, and disciplined leadership of a team. Linda led the development of a UK-wide resourcing operation serving a 3000+ person organization achieving best-in-class performance within a global conglomerate. It is with this personal knowledge of her performance over a sustained period of time that I fully endorse Linda and her colleague Taryn to be the right partners to fulfil your talent needs.

Jim Girard
Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, L3Harris Technologies

I first met Taryn and Linda when we worked together at United Technologies Corporation. As leaders of the internal recruitment division, my entity utilised their department’s services successfully on a number of occasions for sales and technical opportunities. Now, as Managing Director, at Kentec Electronics, I have again worked with them, this time via WW, to recruit a key management role for the business. Their commitment, understanding of the position, experience of our market, extensive network and ability to identity talented people has ensured a positive hiring result. It is a pleasure to work with this duo and I am happy to recommend their services.

Kevin Swann
Managing Director, Kentec Electronics Ltd & Global Head of R & D Hochiki & Kentec Ltd

Identifying talent for the business that ensures we have the right people in place is a critical, demanding, potentially resource heavy activity. This pressure is relieved when working with Linda and Taryn. I trust them to locate individuals with specialist skill sets, provide accurate insights for me and provide timely shortlists of relevant candidates. I value the detailed assessments that they also provide on each candidate and they always manage the process efficiently. They listen, understand, advise, action, work closely with me and my senior team to ensure a positive outcome for all involved. I am sure that we will continue to work together for many years to come.

I have known and worked with both partners of Walmsley Wilkinson for a number of years. More recently, this has been in my role of Chief Executive Officer, Envivo, where I have required assistance with a number of key hires in order to support the continued growth of the business. These roles have spanned from Director level to Operational and Specialist positions. My senior management team and I have really appreciated the supportive and inclusive way in which Linda and Taryn operate. They always provide very relevant candidates, invaluable insights and ensure deadlines are met. Feedback from new members of the team who have been placed by WW has also been positive regarding their hiring process. I would have no hesitation in recommending this business.

Paul Hainsworth

Having gained confidence in how they operated in their previous corporate roles, I was happy to trust them with several key hires. They provide an experienced, safe pair of hands with the ability to act as extended HR team members. They saved me valuable time at a point when I had yet to build my own department and they consistently supply a diverse shortlist of talented candidates. They are passionate about what they do and their partnering style of working. Linda and Taryn are Walmsley Wilkinson. This is also a key aspect of their service offering. As a client you know exactly who you are working with and are assured of their commitment.
