The WW Way

The WW Way embraces a partnership approach. We provide you with a roadmap ensuring you receive the very best client service. We are experts in navigating the journey of finding the solution to your executive, management or specialist hiring needs.


Getting to Know You

Taking a Detailed Brief

When you work with Walmsley Wilkinson Associates, you work closely with Linda and Taryn. Every Time.

As well as being talent specialists, we have the benefit of many years of business-commercial experience and are able to quickly understand your organisation and recruitment needs. We ask the questions that challenge you, in order to provoke thought and achieve the detailed, accurate recruitment brief so crucial to getting this right.

We invest time to build effective and enjoyable working relationships with all the relevant stakeholders. Indeed, many of our clients value being able to make use of our general business knowledge and recommendations. We listen well and act as a supportive partner.

Prior to starting search activity, we agree timescales and an action plan whilst also providing a transparent summary of the opportunity for your approval.


Thorough Search

Talent Finders

Our approach is always tailored to suit each project. We utilise our considerable recruitment expertise in search, advertised selection and database search activity to identify, attract and secure the most relevant selection of engaged, diverse and talented candidates. Our clients benefit from our highly evolved networks and commitment to utilising the latest technology. Despite any challenging market conditions, no hiring challenge is too difficult, no brief is too specialist, no geography a problem – we specialise in identifying hidden talent.

Our process is thorough and generates extensive market intelligence which we share with our clients. We understand the business cost of having a key role unfilled, that’s the reason why we work around the clock to deliver quality results quickly.

Locating talent can be achievable for many, but our real differentiator is our approach. Potential candidates respond to us and enjoy the experience of liaising with Linda and Taryn as true ambassadors for our clients.


Ongoing Communication

It’s Good to Talk

We partner closely with all your internal stakeholders and will strive to go the extra mile to provide above-and-beyond service levels.

We enjoy communicating with you throughout the process to ensure that you are always updated on activity and progress. Our clients tell us that they like working with us. Highly experienced, business savvy, trusted advisors, problem solvers, good listeners, sense of humour, delivery focused, collaborative. We are ideas people.

We effectively manage all interview, decline, offer and onboarding activity.


Quality Candidates

Respect and Care for All

Our interview methods are comprehensive, objective and recognise the importance of diversity and inclusion. We explore experience, capabilities, motivations, personal tendencies and behavioural characteristics. We can support our years of interviewing experience with personality profiling and aptitude testing.

Thorough insights and assessments of all shortlisted candidates are provided and wherever possible we will meet with you in person to present the shortlist and review candidates.

At the identified candidate(s) stage, we can provide comprehensive referencing to assist you in de-risking the hiring decision.

We are proud to be candidate champions and are committed to ensuring that all candidates receive an excellent experience when working with us. This in turn ensures that your employer brand is always recognised positively.


Effective Results

Failure is Not an Option

We recognise the importance of pace throughout the process. Our focus is to select the best within the shortest possible timeframe. We look to achieve a recruitment brief to offer acceptance in eight weeks and can supply candidate shortlists within a two to four week timeframe. Feel free to set us a challenge – we enjoy achieving the impossible.


Together Long-term

And Beyond...

We have a valuable part to play in supporting the onboarding process to the benefit of both our client and the selected candidate. Our interest and support continues long beyond the appointment date because we care about doing the right thing. Clients that work with us for the first time, then continue to partner with us many times over the years. We value all our working relationships. When you work with Walmsley Wilkinson, you work closely with Linda and Taryn. Every time.

What our clients say

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.
