Adam Appointments - Home The only Scottish agency specialising exclusively in

We truly value the relationships we have built with our clients and candidates over the years and would like to say thank you for the ongoing trust and support.


"Adam Appointments' knowledge of the market and straight-talking is exactly what any professional needs when they are looking for their next opportunity. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Quite simply they are the best in the market by some distance. From a happy repeat customer!"

Donna-Louise Ritson, Risk Manager

"I have had the pleasure of working with Adam Appointments on a number of occasions as both a candidate and as a client. As a candidate and client they take time to get to know you, share their wide knowledge of FS clients and suitable vacancies and keep things moving. They are there throughout the recruitment process, providing feedback and keeping things moving. Always realistic and never pushy or demanding, AA is great to work with and I look forward to working with them again."

Sarah Smith, Senior Audit Manager

"Adam Appointments has been instrumental in achieving an excellent result for me through a recent recruitment process. I was expertly advised on the assessment phases of the process and I found them highly professional and knowledgeable about clients. I would strongly recommend to any employer or potential candidate."

Dan Pearce, Global Head of IT Security

"I was recruited through AA for a senior position. I have a lot of experience of recruiters and can absolutely commend the AA approach. They are thorough – the detailed information I received adds real value to the recruitment process and the feedback loop has worked really well. I genuinely believe that I worked in partnership with them which is very unusual if not unique. I have no hesitation in recommending AA as a recruiter to any potential candidate or client and the support received will be total!"

Chris Keay, Senior Risk and Regulatory Professional

"Adam Appointments worked with me to find financial controls experts for my team. The main reason they stand out from other recruiters is they didn't waste my time with second-rate candidates. I was supplied only with first rate candidates from the local market, which is a refreshing change from other recruitment firms who generally would present any candidate who half way fits the bill. Recruitment would be a much easier experience if all recruiters were like Adam Appointments. In short, I found Lucy to be an excellent recruiter, absolutely top class."

Peter Heffernan, Associate Director

"If you are looking for a run of the mill recruitment partner, then look elsewhere. Adam Appointments provided a personal and professional service that I would have no hesitation in recommending to others. It’s so refreshing to deal with someone who has a complete understanding of what a client is looking for. Every part of the recruitment process was thorough and precise, nothing was too much trouble. Recruitment made easy."

Gordon Hyslop, Policy Oversight Manager

"I have worked with Adam Appointments over a number of years. They are trusted advisors to me and my team around recruitment, and have continued to provide a stream of top quality candidates - many of whom I have recruited. I have no hesitation in recommending them to other organisations, as I am confident that their approach to recruitment - in particular in listening to client needs and delivering first class candidates - makes AA one of the very best in the market."

Dougie McAndrew, Partner

"I recently had the pleasure of working with Adam Appointments while looking for new career opportunities. The advice, support and guidance that I received throughout the entire process was exceptional and was key in helping me to land the perfect job. They not only have expert knowledge of the Corporate Governance sector but their expertise, knowledge, and integrity as a recruiter is second to none. You're not just another name on a database to Lucy and her team - that personal touch makes all the difference. I would definitely recommend Adam Appointments to friends and colleagues without hesitation."

Maura McAaulay, Information Security Consultant

"I have used Adam Appointments twice and they excel above other recruitment agencies in their field. They will keep you up to date regardless of what is going on, ensure that any role suggested is suited to your needs (i.e. not just getting candidates in the door.) and are always on hand for advice throughout the process."
