Open quote I would like to say what a wonderful service I received from Sue; her professionalism in meeting with me and also arranging to find a suitable job vacancy which I was short-listed for.

What a truly professional service and establishment. In recognition of the service I received, I will recommend ARWales to others.

The professionalism, friendliness and expert advice are second to none and AR Wales take a personal interest in their clients. Sue and Colin will always try and match the person to the role first - and not just chase the fees. I have used AR Wales for many years both for recruiting and job search and they will be my first contact for any future requirements. AR Wales are up-front, honest and a delight to work with Close quote

FCMA Head of Finance Heads of Valleys

Open quote My experience with Accountancy Recruitment Wales was extremely positive. The process started with being asked relevant questions to ascertain the type of person I was looking for; this first conversation was invaluable as it ensured the CVs I was sent fitted the job perfectly. From this I was able to find the best candidates to interview and this enabled me to save huge amounts of time trawling through irrelevant CVs.

Unlike a lot of agencies who just send you absolutely everything they have that comes close to your job description, ARW gave me a relevant shortlist and from this, I was able to find the best candidates to interview. It was so important that all candidates had been met by ARW as this just added a little bit more information to complement the CV.
I only interviewed a couple of people and found the ideal candidate in the first interview. There is always luck with these things; however, I do believe the process I went through with Sue and Colin enabled a pain-free, quick result, whereas historically, I had interviewed 10 people and found no-one suitable. Close quote

FC Market Leader Gwent Valleys

Open quote Very impressed with the service that I recently received from Accountancy Recruitment Wales. The service was professional, friendly, efficient and personal. I was provided with candidates that matched my requirements (rather than a general list of candidates that may have 'fitted the bill' that you are given by some agencies), which saved me valuable time. All this and more at that all important 'competitive rate'. Thank you ARW. Close quote

FC Manufacturing Company Gwent Valleys

Open quote I would like to thank both yourself and Colin for your help and the friendly caring words of encouragement you have given over the last few weeks. Should I need to look for a new position in the future I will most certainly be in touch. Once again many thanks. Close quote

Accounts Assistant Gwent Valleys

Open quote I can't thank you enough for all the help and support you have given me - you have been nothing like the other recruitment agencies I have been with in the past; you haven't forced me to take this role just for your commission, you asked me to think about it and even when you rang me regarding the second interview, you checked to ensure I still wanted to go for it. Can you also pass on my thanks to Sue as she spoke to me when I went for my first interview and I was panicking and she really helped me and explained that interviews are a 2 way process. Once again thank you very much. Close quote

P/Q AAT Accounts Assistant Gwent Valleys

Financial Controller Gwent

Open quote We have used many recruitment consultancies over the past 6 years but on this occasion we decided to utilise the services of Accountancy Recruitment Wales. I was quite astonished at the speed and high level of service provided by both Colin and Sue. We were attempting to recruit a Financial Controller and within a few days we were provided with five C.V.s who were all of an extremely high calibre. Following the initial interviews the selection process was very difficult due to the high standard of each candidate. We could have easily selected any of the interviewees but after a lengthy decision process the eventual candidate chosen has proven to be a great asset to the company. Close quote

Open quote Hi Colin, Thank you for your help in obtaining my new position. The process was quick, professional & effortless. Your help, support, advise & backgound information certainly helped. It's nice to be treated as an individual & not just a number. Again, many thanks Close quote

Credit Controller Ebbw Vale

Open quote Just a quick courtesy note to express my appreciation for the professional manner in which you conducted the search for a suitable candidate for the Finance Manager position. I stressed at the outset of the process that confidentiality was a key consideration, and having read the posting on your website, it's clear that not only did you thoroughly understand the candidate profile and the exciting opportunities that position brings, but you more than met my expectations with regard to preserving client confidentiality.

At all times during the process I feel that I have been kept informed, well briefed and been offered useful feedback. Your approach has been honest, reliable and professional. You have never adopted the "hard sell" tactic and have consequently availed yourselves of dignity bereft of the desperation that all too frequently blights your competitors.

Thanks again - a job well done! Close quote

Office Manager Manufacturing Chepstow

Open quote I recently had the pleasure of working with Sue and Colin at Accountancy Recruitment Wales and cannot recommend them highly enough for their care, attention and professionalism throughout the recruitment process. Like many, I found myself unemployed during the Covid crisis and therefore faced with speaking to recruitment firms large and small. It was a delight to engage with both Sue and Colin, who took the time to fully interrogate my CV and skill set, propose a range of potential opportunities and verse me in detail about them, having obviously taken the time to fully understand the roles being recruiting for. This professional yet personal approach was a breath of fresh air, when compared to many larger recruitment firms to whom it seemed that you were just yet another CV. Close quote
