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.

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.
