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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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 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.

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.
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 know the legal market and the retail sector well. They put forward a number of good candidates and provided sound advice to the business.
Nick was exceptionally knowledgeable, professional and personable while helping me find the right role.
BCL He has placed all 4 members of our legal team and the service has always been first class. Showing great flexibility in working with us and always suppling a number of high quality 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 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.
I will definitely not hesitate in recommending BCL to other people.
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.
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.
