“Adam Appointments really understand Risk & Compliance, and take time to match the right roles to the right people; a small team means a personal, value-add service.  For my current role, Dougie was able to provide additional colour to the position and company, greatly assisting me in preparing for the interviews – and beyond.  AA have also assisted me in further recruitment.  I would have no hesitation about recommending them, whatever side of the table you’re sitting on.”

Angus Johnston, Head of Risk & Compliance

What made him stand out from other recruiters I worked with was a.) He gave a lot of attention and time to get to know me as an individual, understand my plans and ambitions to determine whether job is a good match. He did not pressure me at any point. b.) He was very engaged at every step of the process and provided a lot of useful practical advice. I would highly recommend him!”

Rob King, Senior Manager – Big 4

“Adam Appointments worked with me to fill the newly formed position of Governance & Risk Officer into my expanding team. Dougie took the time to fully understand the role, our company and my expectations before he carefully selected suitable candidates for me to consider. The candidates recommended to me were of an excellent calibre and Dougie’s covering notes regarding each candidate were extremely helpful. I interviewed three candidates, and all demonstrated a clear understanding of my requirements, which helped contribute to a positive interview process. In the end, I had to make the difficult decision to choose between two excellent candidates and Dougie was helpful and professional throughout. I’m really looking forward to working with him again on my next hire.”

Susan McCallum, Head of Compliance & Legal

“My success rate recruiting through Adam Appointments has been significantly higher than with any other recruiter. Lucy has always put in the effort to fully understand my role requirements and only send me candidates who completely fulfil those requirements. This leads to a much lower workload for me than using those agencies who send me lots of unsuitable candidates. And for my own career, Lucy has managed to place me in my ideal roles in senior influential positions in industry over the last 6 years.”

Rory Alsop, Head of Technology & Cyber Risk

“It was a pleasure to work with Lucy to secure my most recent position. Not only was she attentive and professional at all times she took the time to really understand my career goals and discuss roles that mapped to my aspirations. Lucy knows the Scottish jobs market exceptionally well – she was able to share invaluable context and briefing packs about the roles she was representing. What is especially impressive is that she clearly understands the day-to-day realities of the technical disciplines she represents and as such can empathise with both employer and candidate. In a jobs market that is becoming ever more transactional, Lucy manages to provide a service that is personable, tailored and where you walk away feel valued for as a candidate. I would have no hesitation recommending Adam Appointments to any prospective employer or candidate.”
