“Thank you for the assistance you gave in finding the job for me and not fitting me to a job. Leaving your first job is not an easy thing to do, however from the time you spent getting to know me, with your contacts and understanding of what I was looking for it made things easier.
I appreciate the effort that you made and the timeframe you worked to when seeking a suitable position for me. I would of course recommend you and your agency to anyone; but particularly to those who do not just want to be a number thrown at a job but have an idea of the role they are looking for.” S.B - Milton Keynes
"Leaving my job after over 7 years in the same place was not an easy decision to make, and I expected the job hunting to be just as difficult. Fortunately, Colin made that part relatively painless. He probably knew what I was looking for in my new firm more than I did!!
I found that Colin and Wavelength had a refreshing approach, listening to what I wanted to be able to progress my career and ensuring that I was only put forward for those roles that fitted. Three months into my job, I can definitely say it was the right move to make – thank you for helping me find it." L.N - Milton Keynes
Hi Colin & Helena
Just thought I would drop you a quick line to say a big THANK YOU!!! This job is fantastic. I am really enjoying it and I can see me spending the rest of my days here. The Partners have been great. I have been meeting the Senior Partner's clients and he has been introducing me as "the man who is going to takeover". That was a bit daunting at first but I can see that he is looking at this as a genuine opportunity for me to progress and him to take a back seat on the day to day stuff and allow him to get out and market the business. Partnership opportunity is closer than ever as he wants to retire in an absolute maximum of 10 years. I think 5 or so is probably more realistic and where he wants it to be.
Anyway, I hope all is well with you guys. C.H - Northampton
Due to the stage I was at in my studies, I thought a move towards career progression would be difficult. However the guys at Wavelength carried out all the leg-work for me so that I could fully concentrate on my studies. This coupled with my location at the time, I felt Wavelength did everything to help me gain employment.The communication between Colin, Helena and myself allowed me to feel part of the process, in which I felt in control at all times during the recruitment process and of which career path I was heading down.I would like to thank you again, and would feel no hesitation in using Wavelength for future staffing requirements or any further development in my career. D.W - Peterborough
Thank you to you and Helena for making the time to visit me in Milton Keynes at the beginning of December, and with such short notice and limited availability due to my travel arrangements for returning to Gibraltar the following day. During our meeting I was able to express to you what my expectations were and as such you were able to secure me an interview, for the one working day before the christmas break, again to fit in with my travel arrangements. As you remember that one interview resulted in my current employment, working for a friendly company in a role that I thoroughly enjoy, which is also giving me the new challenges I need.I would, if ever needed, contact you and Helena again for future employment and equally would recommend you to others. T.W - Milton Keynes
I found Colin and Helena very helpful in finding me my current job. I relocated to the area and had very little knowledge of jobs available and practices in the town. Colin was particularly helpful, meeting me on a Saturday to discuss things and arranging interviews for me in out of office hours to avoid taking time off work. Colin and Helena have excellent knowledge of the profession and the advice they gave me was invaluable. I would definitely use Wavelength again and would recommend them to anyone wanting to move jobs. J.H - Relocated to Northamptonshire
"From the very moment I walked into Colin's office, I knew that this was a professional environment and that Colin would find the right opporunity to fit my level of expertise and aspirations. The position I am in now has fulfilled my hopes and expectatations and I have no hesitation in recommending his business to other firms and candidates".
D.M - Northampton
"I have known Colin throughout most of my accountancy career and have always respected his opinion and advice with regards to the Public Practice market. More recently Colin was instrumental in guiding the process for a position that he made me aware which has ultimately resulted in me securing a Partnership role with a firm I had not considered before. Without the assistance of Colin and the team at Wavelength this opportunity would have passed me by. I highly recommend anybody with relevant Practice experience to contact Wavelength, I have found them accurate with their advice and professional in their approach. I believe with their knowledge and experience within Public Practice Wavelength will be best suited in comparison to other agents to find a appropriate position for both the candidate and the employer." A.P. - Northampton
"Colin at Wavelength was very helpful when I approached him after deciding to leave my first job. He listened to what I was looking for in a new job and also offered advice, but without being pushy. He got me an interview quickly with a position I was interested in and contacted me before and after to see how it went. All in all I received a very friendly and helpful service from Wavelength, thank you!" S.E - Milton Keynes
Thanks so much for all your help in finding me a job, recently. Your ‘no fuss’, quiet approach and your constant reassurances that there is life after redundancy was an immense help to me. I didn’t want to have to face CVs and and a round of interviews and it was such a relief to leave all of that up to you. It’s good to be working again and I shall always be happy to recommend your consultancy.
Once again, thanks to you both. R. A. - Northampton.
"I approached Colin at Wavelength on the advice of a friend and can definitely say I made the right decision. So many agencies just see you as a name on a piece of paper and dont actually care what you are looking for, just how they can make money out of you. For me, leaving the job I had been in for 8 years since university was very daunting but Colin actually took the time to find out what I wanted and needed and matched that to appropriate positions rather than scattergunning me with anything he had on his books at the time. Within 10 days he had secured me an interview and I am now employed at that firm. Jolly well done I say!! Thanks for all your help Colin." C.S - Northampton
Thanks again for finding me a position with such a good fit. K.H - Leicestershire
"I wanted to thank you for my recent placement. As you know I had been in the same job for 11 years and the prospect of looking for a new job was very daunting but you made the whole process very simple and straight forward.
I was also very grateful that you listened to what I wanted and found me a role on my terms and never deviated from that, which I am sure many agencies would have done.
I will certainly be using your agency from now on for any staffing requirements as well as for any future career moves." C.A - Bedfordshire
"Just a short note to express my appreciation of all the hard work you put in to make my recent job search successful. As you know, I had a very difficult decision to make as I had several very different job offers. However, I have now been here for three months and am confident that (with your support) I made the right choice. The job is everything I hoped it would be, particularly in terms of the range of special and advisory work.
I also found it very helpful to talk to you about the local business environment and the area generally. Without your advice, I might not have felt sufficiently confident to relocate to the area. N.S - Buckinghamshire
"The main points on which I think both you and your organisation succeed are:
Honesty: you analyse each individual’s circumstances identifying strengths and weaknesses and give an honest appraisal of the situation.
Meeting the clients needs: you do not put forward options that are clearly unfeasible for the individual in your own interest of achieving commission.
Working with the individual.: you work with the individual to arrange interviews suitable for all concerned; you give regular feedback and again, you place importance on meeting the individual's needs
And finally: you make the individual feel valued, which I think is a large part of your personal style." B.P - Buckinghamshire
"I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and Colin for your help in finding a job for me. I have found your approach both professional and friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend Wavelengh." R.C Northamptonshire
"I must compliment you on the way in which you listened to my career needs and advised me in such a manner that only suitable job opportunities were considered and offered to me. Your helpful, friendly and caring manner was also most unexpected, given the usual nature of other professional job agencies and their staff!
I am really enjoying my new job which, as you know, was a departure from my previous career path, but one which I had identified as being necessary and, thanks to your support, one which I am now fulfilling.
I wish you every success in your continuing work with other members of the Accountancy profession; I am sure that others will come to appreciate your professional approach." A.L Northampton
I would like to thank you and Helena once again for all the help and support you have offered me. You have gone out of your way to offer a more personal and considered service, which has been completely unrivaled, and which has lead to me being given what I think will turn out to be a perfectly suited role.
Many thanks guys.

Earlier this year, through no fault of my own, I found myself looking for a new role. Having used Colin to obtain my first Tax Manager role and kept in touch ever since, he was an automatic choice to help.
Colin doesn't believe in trying to put a square peg in a round hole, so after a comprehensive meeting to discuss my preferences for the new role, Colin started to test the waters. Whilst this happened, Colin kept me updated with progress and was reassuring that the right role would soon appear.
When a seemingly ideal opportunity arose, Colin gave me useful advice on how to approach the interview together with other helpful information.As it turned out, the interview went really well and I started my new role soon afterwards!
I think Colin's knowledge of the local market makes him the logical choice for applicants in this area. Coupled with the fact that he has been in business for several years now, I would recommend him to anybody. Hopefully though, in a good way, I won't require his services anytime soon!

"Having been in my role for almost 7 years and it being my first role in the accounting industry I was naturally nervous about "taking the leap" and looking for a new job. What I did know is that this was a really important decision and my next role would shape the rest of my career. Colin was there every step of the way to help support me in making the decision of where I wanted to go. His practical experience of having worked in the industry himself gives him an extra level of understanding. The whole process felt comfortable and there was absolutely no pressure. I wasn't bombarded with any old role as some recruiters do but Colin took the time to match me with employers that he has relationships with. Obviously I would like to stay where I am for as long as possible but should I ever need to move jobs again I would most definitely be in touch with Colin and I would recommend him to anyone." R W (Milton Keynes)
I was very apprehensive when considering a change in my career. I had lost a lot of confidence in agents after numerous dead end interviews and poor advice.
One meeting with Colin restored any faith I had lost. I had one interview which was successful and I couldn't have thought of working for a better company than I am working for now.
Thank you for all your hard work. It's nice to know there are agents that actually care for the candidates that earn them a living.
Michael - Northampton
Thanks for everything Colin, a professional without a doubt!
Would firstly like to say thank you for finding such a great role.... I've just had a great meeting. (They)understand what I'm capable of doing and can see how it'll fit into the team. L.C. - Northampton
