Jon Garrod joined BWD in March 2015, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge of the contract finance market. He was brought on board to establish and develop a contract division for BWD and his specialist area is in recruiting contractors within Finance, Risk and Change Management. This has been a great success and now the division works in partnership with many of the UK’s leading banks, financial institutions, life, pensions and investment companies, as well as boutique firms.

In a short period of time Jon has developed a vast network across the UK, and is seen as a true subject matter expert by both his clients and candidates who value his advice for any contracting or niche roles within his market place.




  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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
