Testimonials – What they say about FWA

Our clients’ feedback underscores the impact of our dedication to maintaining high service standards and our consistent effort to be a trusted resource throughout their recruitment process.

“We have worked successfully with Frasia and her colleagues for many years – what is impressive is that Frasia takes the time to know our business and assist us in getting the best fit in our new people – we wish the business all continued success.” 

Marie Macdonald, Chairman & Head of Employment Law, Miller Samuel Hill Brown – December 2020

” Frasia is great – and deeply knowledgeable about the sector – with the result that she knows different firms and environments and how people will or will not fit in. Culture as they say eats strategy – and laterals – for lunch, and given the importance of moves for all concerned that knowledge can both help find the right fit and avoid the wrong one.”

Stephen J Gibb, Corporate Partner, Shepherd and Wedderburn LLP – December 2020

“Frasia and her team have worked with us for over 5 years.  Their focus on legal recruitment and the deep knowledge which they have developed about our business have both been very helpful to us as our business has grown over that period.  We receive an excellent professional service from Frasia Wright Associates for our permanent and interim legal staffing requirements.  It is a pleasure dealing with Frasia and her team and we highly recommend their services.” 

Robert Glennie, Co-founder and Executive Director, NewGalexy Services – December 2020

“Frasia and her team are extremely knowledgeable in the legal world and they have assisted Anderson Strathern over many years in terms of recruitment and market information.  Frasia has a wealth of knowledge, built over the 25 years she has been established, and we have always found the team to be professional, approachable and helpful. Congratulations on your 25th year anniversary and we look forward to working with you in the future.”

“I have known and worked with Frasia for many, many years and there is no question that Frasia and her team are absolutely pivotal to legal recruitment in Scotland” 

Euan Duncan, Partner, MacRoberts – November 2020

Frasia and her team have always been a great support to our firm. They understand the nature of our business and frequently identify suitable candidates for us, based on good research. We have hired a number of recruits via Frasia Wright over the years and would not have worked with these excellent solicitors without her. We get quick and honest responses on candidates and, on the unusual occasion when things haven’t worked out, Frasia has always taken a wholly pragmatic approach – something which is critical in a relationship of this nature. When we want to recruit, we have no hesitation in going to Frasia for help.” 

David McKie, Partner, Levy & McRae – November 2020

“I have enjoyed working with Frasia since the start of FWA – and indeed even before then – and the market knowledge and friendly personal touch has been consistent throughout. To maintain that position as an independent operator at the forefront of the Scottish legal recruitment scene is impressive.  Very well done on the first 25 years in business.” 

David B Gibson, Chairman, BTO – November 2020

“Always provide an excellent level of service. Good relationship with firm for many years. Preferred agency.”

HR Manager, Specialist Law Firm – Edinburgh

“Our need to use FWA is limited, due to the small size of the legal function. However, FWA are our “go to” consultants, and I would be happy to recommend the team to other potential users.”

Chief Legal Officer, University of St Andrews

FWA provide a first class professional service when dealing with all vacancies and are the only agency I would consider using for any legal vacancies. If FWA cannot source the right candidate then they are not to be found in the market. My main dealings have been with Frasia, who cannot do enough to understand the vacancy and source suitable candidates. FWA is a pleasure to do business with.

HR Director, Leading Financial Services Institution

I have only dealt with FWA on the recruitment of xxxxxxxx…it was a great remit. I have since spoken to Frasia Wright and appreciated her honesty in advising on the question raised. That integrity and knowledge with accessibility is vital.

Legal Director, Leading Energy Provider

This is the first time we have used the service and I have no complaints. We were dealt with efficiently and with respect right from the first meeting. Contact thereafter was always maintained in a friendly but professional manner with all relevant updates.

It really was a pleasure to deal with people that showed the level of professionalism which came from FWA.

Information Disclosure Manager, Police Office

Consultants had a good understanding of our business and requirements – where they are dealing with a ‘new area’, they take time to get to know people / business units. I know I am leaving the recruitment process in capable hands, and only interviewing a small number of relevant candidates. First class service.

HR Director, International Construction Company

It was a positive experience. FWA came to know our business…..which was extremely valuable.

Commercial Director of a Financial Services organisation

I was very pleased with the FWA’s market knowledge and advice during the recruitment campaign and delighted in securing the right candidate.

Director of Legal for leading PLC

Let me record that Frasia Wright Associates has been easily the best and most consistent agency with which to deal, friendly people who all espouse a professionalism and ethos in a sector which has not always graced itself. It has been a pleasure working with all of you.

Director of HR of leading Edinburgh firm

You did a great job – producing the candidate we selected within a day!

General Counsel for leading PLC

Most of my contact is with Frasia and I greatly value the relationship I have with her. I appreciate her honest and frank approach to recruitment and know I will always be given a clear steer on how the candidate is feeling about the firm, salary expectations etc. Her knowledge of the legal profession has guided me over the years and I believe she has a sound understanding of my firm. I also enjoy working with Cameron and he has worked hard on a couple of vacancies for us recently.

HR Director, leading law firm

Having worked primarily with Frasia and Cameron, I have found the service provided by you extremely good. Both were very easy to deal with and seemed to have a really good understanding of what we were looking for and what we can offer too. Everyone I have dealt with has been friendly and helpful.

Director, highly regarded firm, Scottish Borders
