As part of our drive to disrupt the executive recruitment process, we are very pleased to announce a further new partnership with Willo – a video interviewing platform connecting talent with opportunity through technology.


When used to replace those interminable candidate supporting statements, Willo offers a seamless 24 hour user experience that really helps potential candidates put across what they have to offer quickly and easily, with the flexibility to submit video interviews day or night, on any device, anywhere in the world. The benefits to our clients in speeding up the process and discovering top talent earlier are clear!


We are looking forward to working with Euan and the team as they continue to push boundaries and further develop this new and innovative tool to reflect streamlined and candidate focused recruitment practice.
