  • The level of service you’ve provided has been the best I’ve experienced. (1) I’ve never felt better prepared for an interview, [allowing] me to go in and perform confidently. (2) You called when you said you would, kept me updated, and been flexible in your channels of communication to allow me to get on with my day job. (3) You’ve been pleasant to deal with all the way through the process.

    John Cresswell

    Vice President Recovery & Resolution, BNY Mellon
  • I was delighted with BWD's approach. They understood the brief and put forward a well-researched group of candidates. Most impressive was the quality of information sent with tailored CVs and brief email summaries of qualities relevant to the role.

    Adrian Chapman

    Head of Sales, Capita EB
  • The service we receive is exceptional and nothing is too much trouble. By recruiting the highest calibre of individuals we have been able to grow significantly, and in both 2014 and 2015 appeared in the Citywire Top 100.

  • Harry was extremely friendly, proactive and helpful from the outset and really listened to my needs and what I was looking for. Therefore finding a new job became somewhat seamless and it felt like a very personalised experience from start to finish. Within a few weeks I received an offer from a company which feels like the perfect fit. As someone who usually avoids recruiters, I would definitely recommend BWD
