I have no hesitation in recommending the services of BCL Legal. Their professionalism and tenacity ensured that the recruitment process went smoothly and I managed to secure my dream job.
Amber Grey
Manager Business Affairs, ITV Granada PLC
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.
Mike Elston
Chief Counsel Combat Air, BAE Systems
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.
