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

Mark Levine 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.
