“Excellent and always willing to help at short notice so cannot thank the team enough.”

“Very good experience, they were polite, contact was regular, and seemed genuinely engaged in helping me to find a suitable position.”

“Very helpful, very quick to respond and helped me to secure a new job.”

“Really fast responses, sent lots of options and listened to feedback.”

“I mainly spoke to Teddie who was fantastic and very helpful. He was approachable and always happy to answer any questions I had.”

“My experience with Frasia Wright was very smooth from start to finish. I received helpful advice, prompt responses and both Teddie and Jade were very personable. I recommended them to a friend and he secured a job too. Very pleased. “

“It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with all of you.”


“I found it very easy to work with Teddie. I found him to be competent, helpful and available.  I have nothing negative to say about the experience. I have not used an agency before in this regard, and somewhat stumbled into it on this occasion, but would not hesitate to return.”

“My contact with the consultants was always good, personable and efficient.”

“Very efficient with communication in relation to interviews, job offers and suitable opportunities. I think the agency is very good and it is good how the agency is focused on employment in the legal sector.  I found employment quickly and attended interviews with the help of FWA. When I was applying for jobs without the help of FWA I was making less progress with getting to interview stage.”

” Teddie was extremely helpful and couldn’t be faulted. Would definitely use him and FWA again if I was in the job market.”

“Teddie was very good. Always responded promptly and gave good advice. Neither he nor Frasia put me forward for a job just for the sake of it.”

“Excellent level of service. Kept me updated and was on hand for advice at any time.”

“I was very pleased with the service I received. I would certainly use Frasia Wright Associates again in the future. Many thanks to Frasia, Cameron, Teddie and the rest of the team.”

“I was so impressed with the service of everyone I came into contact with at FWA. They were extremely responsive to every email/call and they were very pro active in contacting me about opportunities that may interest me.  I was contacted by a number of recruiters whilst looking for a NQ position and can say that my experience with FWA was by far the most positive.”

“Friendly, insightful, experienced.”

“Excellent. Always responded quickly and kept me informed of all new jobs that became available. FWA are by far the best recruiter I have ever used!”

“All consultants were very attentive, their communication was timely and relevant at all times.

I found FWA to be extremely professional. They were one of the only agencies I felt I could completely trust.”

“Working with both Frasia and Teddie has been an absolute pleasure. They had taken time to appreciate my interests and the direction I wanted to take in the beginning of my career. They provided me with guidance and support throughout the whole process and were there when I needed any assistance. With their knowledge of the legal market, they were able to assess how viable it would be for me to make a move within an area that I had no experience in. With this they provided me with the encouragement and support to pursue the next step in my career and helped me land my dream role! I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you very much for your services.

Karen was also a pleasure to deal with. She answered all my questions and easily guided me through the recruitment process. A massive thank you to her also.”

“Every member of staff that I had contact with was first class.

As someone who has spent the last 12 months or so exploring the NQ employment market I have came into contact with a number of different recruiters and agencies. FWA have been by far the best and most responsive of them all. As a recent NQ who was looking for a change in practice area my impression was that many recruiters and agencies failed to take onboard what I wanted from my next job. In my opinion many were merely attempting to “shoe-horn” me into roles which I simply did not want to move into. In contrast, all of my contacts at FWA (but primarily Teddie), took the time to listen to what I wanted in terms of my next career step and provided me relevant options and sound advice. Teddie’s regular communication, email/telephone updates and general manner was first class. The whole experience of using FWA was extremely positive, and the professionalism of all the Associates that I dealt with really sets apart from its competitors.”

“First-class recruitment service, consultants were very accessible and helpful during the whole process.”

“Great, easy to get a hold of, quick responses, friendly and helpful.

Fantastic, everyone was really helpful and friendly. Phone call with Frasia before the interview was crucial in calming my nerves and she had some good tips. The partner interviewing me had also used Frasia when he was starting out which was great in the interview. The follow up after I had gotten the job was also appreciated and a nice touch. I had a great experience and would highly recommend FWA to anyone looking for a job in the legal sector.” – Stephen Fitzpatrick

“I thought everyone I dealt with was very approachable and prompt in responding to my queries. I felt the consultants listened to me throughout and showed awareness of the different factors influencing my decisions.

Your good at what you do, and you use a good soft skills approach to make people trust you and your advice. As a trainee applying for NQ positions I thought this was one of your organisations best assets.” – Gordon Adams

“FWA provided an exceptionally high level of service, not just the industry standard. FWA listened to me and could think laterally which was crucial for those like me, who wanted to move into a different area of law post qualifying. FWA provided a personable service in which trust and candour was developed benefiting both FWA and me. FWA was unique in that all of the recruitment consultants were alike in terms of friendliness and timeous service being provided. FWA also came up with the maximum number of opportunities and went out of their way to establish which potential employers were open to re-training. Quite frankly, it was the best decision I made in registering with FWA.”

“I was extremely happy with the positive and personable service provided by Frasia Wright. I felt that they went to great lengths to help me find an appropriate position. I was especially pleased with the level of contact that you maintained with me. I found the information pack and the consultant’s knowledge of the firms and partners particularly useful and informative. I have recommended you to friends and will certainly look to Frasia Wright for assistance should I be looking for work in the future.”

“Although in the end the job I found came through another channel (friend passing on CV) I was really impressed with the service Frasia Wright provided. Cameron was so friendly and helpful and helped calm my shredded nerves on a good few occasions!! The information pack on CV building was very useful and definitely helped me get my head round the various things potential employers were looking for. Coming from a Council background it was also reassuring that FW knew what my experience meant and how that would relate to the type of private practice vacancies I was looking at. Believe me, there are agencies out there who think Council lawyers are unemployable and have no idea of how to sell our skills!”

“I felt that the “NQ information pack” was extremely useful and provided excellent advice. This was something that I was not offered by other recruitment firms and I felt this put Frasia Wright well ahead of other companies in the level of service offered. Generally the service was of a fantastic standard and I felt that I was dealt with on a much more “personal” level than other companies.”

“I was thoroughly impressed by the level of service that was offered by FWA. I was contacted on a regular basis to advise me of new posititons on the market, often well before other recruitment companies did and FWA met me in Edinburgh to give me some “pre-interview” advice which was very welcome. The consultants were professional, friendly and always at the other end of the phone when I required advice or input. Importantly, they had an extemely good knowledge of the current market and were not at all “pushy” when it came down to “job decision time”. I was so impressed I have recommended FWA to several of my friends currently seeking positions in the legal sector.”

“Both Frasia and Cameron have been excellent, they are friendly and proactive. They always kept me up to date with information. They responded quickly and efficiently to my email and queries that I had. They always returned my calls. I felt assured that they were doing everything they could to get me a job and that to me is the most important thing. Also Cameron was always very upbeat when he spoke to me so I couldn’t help but feel more positive after speaking with Cameron, he is definitely in the right job for helping people.”

“I found them very easy to contact whenever I needed to, any messages left were answered promptly, they even called me at times to catch up which made me feel they were going the extra mile for me.

I was lucky that a job came up where I already worked, however I felt confident that Frasia Wright were doing what they could to find opportunities for me. I had an interview within days of contacting them and was reassured by their efforts on my behalf. The service was very good and staff were receptive to my requirements.”

“I found the FWA team to be extremely helpful and approachable. They acted with professionalism and engaged me at a level which was not over bearing – which is important.”

“Calls always returned promptly and I was contacted directly when a suitable vacancy became available. The regular email updates were also useful.

Service was excellent and far superior to other agencies in terms of suitable vacancies, level of contact and helpfulness of the consultants.”

“I found both Cameron and Karen to be excellent in terms of access, level of contact and general levels of assistance.”

“Rapid response to emails, and always available on the phone when needed. Very impressed with the individual and candid advice given by Frasia and Teddie. I felt that they were genuinely assisting in progressing my career for my benefit.”

“Consultants were both great, don’t see how they could have done a better job. Teddie will be first call when/if I decide to switch jobs. I have also passed on the details to a few other people I know who are looking for work.”

“I would like to say a special thanks to Teddie and Frasia for working so hard in tight timescales to help me secure my NQ position. Everything was handled professionally, quickly and confidently. Their communication via phone and email was excellent. Frasia and Teddie have good market knowledge and great connections. They quickly understood the various requirements I had and moved fast to help me apply and prepare for interview within a short space of time. They were a useful point of contact with my new firm and made the process much less stressful. I was glad to have Frasia and Teddie’s support.”

“The consultants were knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. They were very professional and I felt confident that they would secure the best result for me.”
