"I have used a number of agencies, and I firmly believe that FWA is head and shoulders above the rest. The consistently high level of service and professionalism I experienced was second to none. FWA also has an excellent knowledge of the market. FWA managed to secure 5 interviews for me, some of which included top firms, and as a result I have now secured a position with a big firm in Glasgow which I am delighted with. I was impressed with the frequent communication (whether it was providing an update on an ongoing vacancy or advising of other vacancies) along with necessary advice to accompany this. I am very grateful to FWA for their service."

A great benefit to be able to discuss matters confidentially outwith work. Compared to other legal recruitment agencies FWA was head and shoulders above the rest. Other agencies would take your details and you would never hear from them or you would not be clear how the information was being used. I never felt that with FWA."

The level of contact was not pushy or over-bearing, but represented a willingness to help and a keenness to ensure the best was made of good opportunities which arose."
