I have worked for the Wellwise Group for the last 16 months and found them to be the best agency I have ever worked for.

Wellwise are very quick to respond with any query I may have whether it is invoicing, flight times, location, meet and greet etc etc etc!! I can pick up the phone anytime and get the answer I am looking for.

Wellwise is a part of my life - I have worked with Wellwise since day one and have seen the company grow, as I have grown with them.

Paul Goodwin
Well Test Supervisor

Communication with operational management has become easy with access to them through the most professional, polite and cheery receptionists one possibly could hope to find on the other end of the phone.

Ian Kirkland
Well Test Supervisor

I have worked for the Wellwise Group for the best part of 14 years. I value the support that is always there; I value their friendship and I look forward to the future and what it will offer as Wellwise continues to expand.

Paul A. Goodwin
Well Test Supervisor

One of the main reasons I like working for Wellwise is the support you are given from the office. I receive a full job brief before travelling and they are always on the other end of the phone if you need anything day or night.

As a consultant to any company, its difficult to grasp the workloads, efforts or agendas of the company, but with Wellwise, one gets the impression of proactivity, not only as a competitor in the agency world but as a company striving for professional respect amongst its clients.

Unlike other agencies we do not post available jobs because of the fast turnover of our business. New jobs are available daily so register with us to ensure you are first to hear of the latest assignments and are ready to travel.
