McGregor Boyall Associates – Why Work For Us?

About Us

As a well-established brand in the market we are committed to delivering high quality recruitment solutions to our clients.

This means being focused, determined and hardworking, but is not associated with mindlessly aggressive sales, unprofessional business tactics or prioritising short-term gain over long-term success.

We ultimately see ourselves as a company which holds shared values, as McGregor Boyall employees and to that of our clients.

A company’s culture is not something that is created overnight. It is the result of consistent values influencing its development over a long period. It is also a reflection of the kinds of people who have joined the company and helped to continuously reshape its personality.

"Our people are our most valuable assets. We know that the firm’s success comes from the success of its employees."

We’re looking for people who want to succeed. People who are driven to rapidly progress their career and be generously rewarded for their hard work. People who enjoy the thrill of the chase, but also relish the satisfaction that comes from delivering a professional and high-quality service to candidates and clients.

You should also want your passion, hard work and intelligence to be recognised with good training, career progression and financial reward.  But personal ambition should never blind you to the benefits of team collaboration. Finally, be prepared to have some fun along the way! So, if you want a job somewhere that you can make a difference, come and talk to us. 

Core Values

At McGregor Boyall we believe our core values form the foundation for shaping the way we work and our company culture.

When recruiting new employees, we look for individuals who naturally share these values – but we also fully expect them to contribute to our future success in a way which is unique to them.


We take responsibility for what we say and do. We do not excuse ourselves nor blame others.


We expect everyone to work together to achieve our common corporate goals, whilst acting with openness and respect at all times.


We believe in doing the right thing, we say what we mean and mean what we say.


We are constantly striving to uphold the highest professional standards, through the quality of our people and excellence in everything we do.

Build your Career

A business is only as good as its people. At McGregor Boyall we create a platform for employees to seize opportunities, enhance their skills and most importantly, achieve success, both financially and through career progression. We aim to develop employees throughout their career, helping them to realise their maximum potential.

We pride ourselves on having a consultative and relationship focused approach to recruitment. We find an approach of conducting on-going assessments and appraisals gives a more comprehensive review of consultant’s performance and allows us to tailor development needs to the individual.

We are passionate about our people and are fully committed to to the continous development of our employees through:

  • Graduate Training Academy
  • Continuous Development through our 4 stage training programme
  • Mentoring & One-on-One Training
  • Leadership Programmes
  • Lunch and Learns
  • Online Tutorials

Training & Development

Our Talent Management Division is fully committed to helping employees realise their potential. As well as using our home grown internal talent to drive initiatives such as our bespoke Training Academy, we have also partnered with Emma Maynard from Inspire HR & Training who is working with us to deliver further bespoke training and coaching to our newly promoted Consultants and our already experienced staff.

Our Training Academy for trainees with little to no recrutiment experience.


360 Core Recruitment Programme for Associate Consultants moving up to Consultant / Consultants with up to 18 months experience.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at McGregor Boyall Associates full-time (More than a year)


    Fantastic management in Scotland- True leaders that will support you and will roll their sleeves up to help achieve the objectives! Good commission scheme and encouraging environment for personal growth. No micro management and very adult-like culture


    Benefits could be better, work-life balance sometimes suffers from long working hours

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good and creative work. CEO is a very well respected man and has admirable experience in the business. Proud to be a part of this business!

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at McGregor Boyall Associates in April 2015.


    The interview process was great as I was given more information on the organisation, given a clear idea of what was expected of me and even the opportunity to meet potential team members.
