Jade…Happy 2nd ‘FWA’ Birthday

Published June 2018

I joined FWA two years ago primarily in the marketing team, but I was quickly immersed in all aspects of the business.  My role has developed over the past two years and I am now a Marketing Specialist and work closely with Admin and Operations as well as supporting the Recruitment team.  This means no day is ever the same for me and this is what I enjoy most about my role!

Most recently I have been working with website developers on re-branding FWA.  We have worked together to create a modern logo and website.  This has been a great experience and I have loved been involved in every development stage.  I was glad the team saw and trusted my vision and I am extremely proud of what we have achieved over the past few months.  I’m looking forward to the website going live (and showing it off to all of you!).

 

Teddie…Happy 3rd ‘FWA’ Birthday

Published April 2018

I joined FWA in 2015 as a recruitment consultant and work closely with the recruitment team – Frasia, Cameron and Robert.

My main focus is on placing junior level lawyers as well as providing advice on firms, salaries and future career prospects.  It is satisfying to help junior level lawyers achieve their first role as an NQ and sometimes in an area of law or location that they had not even thought of!

Within these three years I have learned a lot from Cameron and Frasia and managed to develop my own style of working which is encouraged at FWA.  Work/life balance is an important feature of the culture at FWA - this has allowed me to continue my interest in sport and music.

I look forward to the years ahead with FWA!

Karen…Happy 4th ‘FWA’ Birthday

Published January 2018

Having joined FWA four years ago I was very much immersed in the administration functions and support to the recruitment team.  My position now, as Marketing and Business Support Specialist, allows me to support Frasia on the operational areas, whilst also working with the recruitment and marketing teams. 

Within these four years I have moved home, got engaged, married and moved home…again!

My main work highlights include setting up and upgrading systems in the office, including moving to electronic diaries (convincing everyone to bin the tippexed paper diaries after 20 years was a challenge!).  My main achievement has been managing FWA Interim Solutions, temporary positions on an agency worker basis, this is an area that continues to grow for FWA and I very much enjoy working closely with our clients and candidates in this area.

Personal highlights include attending some great events (which included an evening with George Clooney when he came to the Scottish Business Awards in Edinburgh), a sneaky Chinese take-away for lunch and also the beauty advent calendar in the office this Christmas!

I look forward to many more years ahead with FWA!

Frasia…Happy 22nd ‘FWA’ Birthday

Published December 2017

Well here I am…22 years ago today I took the plunge and set up Frasia Wright Associates – Scotland’s only boutique recruitment agency dedicated to placing Lawyers.  With two young boys under three at the time, this was definitely my third child!  It has been a rollercoaster and what changes I have seen in the legal profession these last 22 years. Thank you to all the lawyers we have placed and recruited for – it’s been my pleasure.

My aim was always to show respect, passion and above all integrity in all that I do with our clients, candidates and my colleagues. Every day I wake up and start all over again...I take nothing for granted. Our company's future is sure to be bright with team members like Cameron, Jade, Karen, Linda and Teddie .Your hard work, creativity and humour is an inspiration to me.

Happy Anniversary everyone!
