“Tony has undertaken a number of searches for my firm, all of which have resulted in a quality candidate pool to progress with. He facilitates a very smooth process, which is helpful for a busy executive with limited time. If required, he can assist with scoping potential job descriptions, and when he has the long list to present, he prepares a comprehensive assessment summary, drawing out the advantages and disadvantages of the respective candidates. For any senior recruitment, he is the first port of call for my firm.”

Graham Singleton

“I have been dealing with WTH, and Tony Hodgins in particular, for more than 26 years. Tony has assisted me with several senior executive appointments while I was serving as the Chief Operating Officer for EDF Energy, and now as Chairman of Utilita. For EDF Energy, he helped us recruit a new FD, and for Utilita, a new COO, as well as several other appointments at lower levels.

Tony gives you a unique service as, in my opinion, he gets 'under the skin' of what you want, and you have his personal attention at all times. I have always been extremely satisfied with the work he has done for me over the years.”

Derek Lickorish MBE

Chairman, Utilita

“In recent years I have been chairman of a strategic advisory group at Buckfast Abbey. Part of our role was to recruit a new COO and two senior managers. Tony Hodgins and Wheale Thomas Hodgins had been recommended to us. I can truthfully say that they exceeded all my hopes and expectations of a recruitment company. They are astute, highly professional and they provided excellent resumés of potential candidates, enabling us to make very good appointments. I particularly liked their sensitivity with applicants who were not successful. I have no hesitation in recommending them.”
