What they say
For a flavour of the way we work and interact with our clients, here are a few client perspectives on BCL’s performance.
Mark is extremely knowledgeable in relation to in house roles. He didn’t just ask me what I needed he analysed the role, the work, my company – it was a full but carefully constructed analysis. When he finds candidates he then explains how they might fit, the areas that may not work and then how they might view the company. This is very important as lawyers will often have different views of companies when compared to law firms. Mark has managed to find candidates when others have failed.
BCL provide an extremely professional service. They take great care to match the potential recruit with my firm and as a consequence those who they put forward are appropriate.
Having recently moved to the North West BCL were always available. Keeping me informed at each stage, it was their local knowledge that allowed me to really focus on the right role for me

BCL and I have built up a relationship over years but they took time to understand the needs of my new role and organisation. Providing 3 excellent shortlists, all of which met our criteria.
