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.
BCL were very selective with the interviews they arranged, appreciating that with time constraints we were focused on interviewing only the highest quality candidates with a very close fit.
BCL Legal is a great recruitment firm. I found Gishan Abeyratne based in Birmingham very helpful, supportive and personable.
I found BCL’s knowledge, contacts and guidance invaluable in my search for my first move in-house. This ultimately lead to a placement with a multi-national plc.
I am consistently impressed by their knowledge and understanding of our business along with the quality of candidates they provide. I look forward to continuing to work with BCL Legal in the future.
I have been extremely impressed with their knowledge, professionalism and ability to consistently provide us with high calibre candidates. I would highly recommend their services.

I found my dealings with the consultants of BCL Legal to be calm, efficient and highly professional. What really impressed me was that they listened to what I wanted and delivered.
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.

I have been extremely impressed with BCL’s legal knowledge and the quality of the candidates they have put forward. They are extremely professional and understand our business needs.
BCL have been a valuable recruitment partner for our Legal Council position. Their approach went beyond just matching skills and experience to a job specification - they know their market.
I have worked with BCL Legal for the past 6 years. they take the time to visit, discussing our needs. Working so closely with James as closely as we do has produced some excellent results.
I would happily recommend BCL Legal to anyone looking for a new role. BCL Legal have matched my skills set to the jobs that they have put me up for and as a result I have been able to fit into a job and organisation quickly and be productive from day one. What sets BCL Legal apart, for me, is their friendliness that is matched by their professionalism. I found BCL Legal extremely helpful, personable and professional.
I wouldn’t hesitate to use you if I need to secure a new position in the future and definitely recommend other use your services.
When I needed to recruit, BCL found the type of person I was looking for and within a few days, I received four good CV’s, I would have been happy to offer a role to either of the two candidates.
I found BCL to be fast, knowledgeable and professional. The overall outcome from this recruitment exercise was very successful. I have no doubt we will use BCL's services again in future.
I have found BCL Legal are always willing to give realistic appraisals, work hard to find the right candidates and clearly take the time to get to know the people that they work with.
BCL are the first people I contact. They listen to our requirements, understand the role and requirements perfectly, and will only put forward those candidates whom they consider to be most suited to and interested in the role.
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.
BCL Legal were extremely helpful when we opened a Manchester office. Winning our quarterly recruitment competition, we hope to continue our excellent relationship for years to come.
BCL really take the time to understand our business and ensure that they only put forward candidates who will meet both our technical but also cultural needs.
BCL Legal are our preferred supplier I have worked with them on vacancies at all of our UK offices. I am consistently impressed by their knowledge and understanding of our business.
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.
They were all excellent candidates and, as I indicated to each of them at the beginning of their second interviews, if we had had three vacancies, all of them would have received offers.
I liked the frank and constructive guidance on the merits of each person. I didn’t get the feeling that you were trying to “sell” me an individual who wasn’t a good fit.
BCL have placed me in my last two roles: In both instances, the support and information provided was invaluable. They have been able to support my next career move each step of the way
