I have been in regular contact with Walker Dendle for about 10 years since my first meeting with Lisa who I found very thorough and knowledgeable. This relationship has resulted in my placement with two Surrey based established organisations via the use of their exceptional recruiting services.
In my first placement as Management Accountant, Estha placed me with Thales in Chessington. This was initially a 3-month contract but after only 3 weeks of being there I became a permanent employee. I stayed there for about 5 years until my redundancy due to a restructure. I enjoyed my time there owing to close working relationship with my team. During my tenure I gained invaluable experience receiving international exposure from within a complex matrix structure. This experience enabled me to take on a year contract position with another large multinational company, focusing more on the commercial side of the business as a finance lead.
Since my Thales days, I have found Lisa and Estha very approachable and engaging. They have helped me understand the nature of the market and have responded to my queries and concerns. This has enabled me to find the right role. It showed a stark contrast to how my last tenure turned out, resulting me leaving the company due to discovering the culture and structure was not a good fit for me. This was a direct placement after I applied directly for a Finance Business Partner position.
Estha, has since, quickly found me a suitable role with Raven Housing Trust. This is the second time Walker Dendle have found me a placement which affirms the strength of my relationship developed over a number of years.
I wanted to focus on the commercial side of business again as a Finance lead in a role that involved business partnering with key stakeholders. Both Lisa and Estha have clearly understood on what kind of role I am looking for and managed to find a suitable organisation with the right culture and structure, ensuring a good fit for me so that I can develop my accountancy career further and be given the right support, meeting my additional needs of being deaf.

I have worked with consultant X as both a candidate and a hiring manager on and off for the past 9 years and all of my experiences with her have been extremely positive and professional.
Consultant X is a great communicator, understands the job at hand extremely well and is a definite 'go to' recruiter when you have the need for either a new role or for someone in your team.

After signing up with numerous recruitment consultants, from Michael Page to Hays, I can say that Walker Dendle is simply a class above all of them. I found the Consultant and the overall service exceptional. They worked with me from the start to finish in the whole process and supported me through a difficult stage in my career. Overall I found they took a very personal, honest approach, keeping in contact with me and working to deliver actual results.

I would just like you to know how impressed I have been with the service I have received from Walker Dendle, and this is not just because you have found me a good job. It makes a refreshing change to deal with a recruitment agency that actually listens to what a candidate wants in terms of role, location, type of company etc which then means I only get contacted about roles which would interest me. Also, you and your team always gave good feedback from interviews, returned all phone messages quickly, and dealt with all queries - no matter how small - in a positive, friendly and professional manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Walker Dendle to any of my friends looking for work in accountancy.

I had meant to send you a mail saying how impressed I was with our meeting, but never got time. It was refreshing to be listened to and have an open conversation, rather than how the agent can sell me as a product irrespective of what I want.
So if I do have any recruiting needs in my new role, you will be pleased to know that Walker Dendle will be my first call.

I have been placed by Walker Dendle on three occasions now and have always given them the sole opportunity to do so, as an agency they have a great portfolio of clients who operate professionally and from my experience look after their staff.
I have always found all the consultants very friendly and professional, with a good understanding of the industry. Consultant X assisted me in finding this new role and was always very helpful and supportive, he took the time to find out exactly what my requirements were and we always discussed thoroughly any positions he thought might be suitable and didn't pressure me to apply.
Consultant X, thanks again for contributing to my success in obtaining a position with Twickenham Experience, I can't wait to start and fulfil the opportunity,

From the beginning Consultant X has been nothing less than supportive, efficient and consistent. She communicated professionally and came across as very approachable on our first phone call which made me eager to confirm and set up a meeting. Even in the meeting she emphasised the character traits already mentioned and made the process of looking for a new job very easy. I was thoroughly impressed with her work ethic and the results which she produced. I would fully recommend Consultant X to anyone who was looking for work. My experience of Walker Dendle was greatly enhanced by Consultant X and her associate’s dealings.
Thanks for all your help.

I went to see Consultant X at Walker Dendle whilst searching for employment within the Accounting and Finance sector. I had the right experience and qualifications but struggled to find a role that suited my career path going forwards. Consultant X was very helpful in securing my a great role which I am currently working in. It suited all my needs in terms of location, role specifics, progression and current working requirements.
Consultant X made the transition effortless and kept me well informed throughout the process (something which I feel other recruitment agencies lack).
I would definitely recommend Consultant X to everyone as she's professional and delivers results!

I assumed that Consultant X has already told you the big news.
Reviewing LGC's position it is exactly what we talked about the day we meet, which amazes me.
Thank you very much for your trust and support. I really appreciate it.
