At BWD, we believe that people make a business. This is what we have been preaching since our inception. For many years, our clients have instilled their trust into BWD to find the right people for their businesses, so it is essential that we have the right people to deliver this.

The core team averages seven years of service, a loyalty not often associated with recruitment, making BWD positively unique. With over 150 years of combined experience and knowledge in recruitment and 80 years in Financial Services, it is fair to say, we know our stuff.


But to get the right people, it is crucial to have the right offering. At BWD, we provide a package to match our employees’ requirements. We equally look after and reward them, and in recognition of our standards, we have been accredited by Investors in People.


  • - A salary fitting for a sales professional
  • - Monthly and quarterly bonus schemes
  • - Health & Wellbeing package, including Private Medical
  • - Extended lunch for the gym and fitness lovers

    - Friday lunches and leave early policy

If you are an experienced recruiter, looking for a new challenge with a firm that rewards success, then we want to hear from you. If you are a graduate, looking for a company with ambitious growth plans and a genuine career path, we want to hear from you. If you are a Financial Services Professional, wanting a change in career, who understands their sector and understands the qualities required to succeed, we want to hear from you.


BWD believe in rewarding all employees, not just consultants for meeting their objectives. In 2018, all qualifying employees enjoyed a trip to Porto, and following a record year, another trip is in the planning.

We all like to let our hair down and enjoy a social gathering now and again. Unlike many firms, we have an active social scene, with a social committee whom organise events throughout the year. Not forgetting the BWD Annual Sports Day, where you are able to demonstrate your sporting prowess (or not), and our Annual Christmas Party, which is always very enjoyable.



It was an absolute delight to work with the skilled experts at BWD to find my current position.  Having a deep understanding of the sector, they took time to properly understand my experience and goals, thereby ensuring potential vacancies were closely matched. By working closely with the candidate and keeping regular communication, everyone benefits. The long and short of it was, I was offered my new role in a matter of weeks. I can highly recommend you give them a call.

AB, Head of Marketing (Hampshire Trust Bank)

I would highly recommend James to others in Financial Planning or Wealth Management. From the very beginning James was personable, interested and listened to what I was after. He was realistic with expectations and able to offer solutions to problems that were posed. I was not actively looking at the time but James reached out in a personalised manner about a specific opportunity that he, correctly, thought I would be suitable for. He was able to offer me alternative positions to the one he initially suggested so I was able to gain perspective, and flexible to work around my needs.

Financial Partner

James took the time to not only understand my current personal and professional position but also helped me see a new future in a rapidly changing Financial Services Sector. James understands both the company and the candidate he represents resulting in a great personal and cultural fit. The advice, guidance and discussions gave me the confidence to make the next step in my career. James knew the opportunity was the right move for me before I did, and this is testament to his skill and experience in the sector. I would highly recommend James to anyone seeking a new role or a company looking to build their team.

Financial Planning Director

Jordan understands his clients’ businesses well and goes above and beyond in providing relevant and useful preparatory information ahead of interviews. This extended to providing an overview of interviewers’ style, career path and immediate desires for the incoming candidate, which well surpassed information available on LinkedIn. This allowed me to not only prepare for the technical side of my interviews, but also to tailor my interview approach to the interviewers style. I really feel that this gave me an invaluable edge and this has demonstrated that Jordan’s level of commitment to candidate preparation is, in my mind, unrivalled in the recruitment market.

Director of Compliance - Markets

I would highly recommend Harry to anyone looking to change to a different actuarial employer.  He listened carefully to what I was looking for and clearly has good contacts within the industry as he found a number of potential roles that would be of interest which results in a successful move.  Throughout the process he was very proactive and always kept me in the loop of what was going on, including following  up on questions I had with my new employer and dealing with salary negotiations.  What impressed me most was that he didn't give me "the hard sell" or try to persuade me into a role when I wasn't sure - he would give you the space to weigh up the options and make sure you make the right decision.

Actuarial Consultant

Jon is an exceptional recruiter and provided considerable support and guidance from the application stage through to working in the role. This, combined with his considerable knowledge of BNY Mellon and the wider financial industry, ensured that I was extremely well-prepared for the interview process. I can't recommend him enough.
