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.
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 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 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

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.
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.

I would happily recommend BCL Legal to anyone looking for a new role.

BCL Legal is a great recruitment firm. I found Gishan Abeyratne based in Birmingham very helpful, supportive and personable.
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.
Mark at BCL was fantastic to work with. He always kept me up-to-date on the progress of my application, adopts a partner-style, collaborative, approach and is straightforward and honest. Mark was excellent at reassuring me about the job's suitability and at boosting my confidence.
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.
BCL has extensive knowledge of the market and takes great care in placing candidates in the right role and firm. They are patient and supportive and in addition very good their jobs.

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.
Thank you for working so hard in getting me this position. You both spent so much time and put in such effort in arranging interviews , even working late into the evening.
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.
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.
BCL recently handled my recruitment to the post of senior legal counsel for one of the UK’s best known FMCG brands. BCL handled my appointment excellently. BCL Legal were not only professional, proactive and responsive to my queries, but also very personable down to earth and a pleasure to deal with.
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.
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.
I have worked with BCL Legal for the past 6 years. They take the time to visit to discuss our needs. Working with James as closely as we do has produced some excellent results.
