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.
BCL provide an extremely professional service. They take great care to match the potential recruit with my firm and as a consequence those who they put forward are appropriate.
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.
Having recently moved to the North West BCL were always available. Keeping me informed at each stage, it was their local knowledge that allowed me to really focus on the right role for me
I have been incredibly impressed by the standards of BCL Legal. They kept me informed and I felt 100% confident that what she promised, she would do would get done - and it certainly was.
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.
I worked with Nick in relation to my latest role. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
I would happily recommend BCL Legal to anyone looking for a new role. BCL Legal have matched my skills 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.
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.
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.
I am consistently impressed by their knowledge and understanding of our business along with the quality of candidates they provide. I look forward to continuing to work with BCL Legal in the future.
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.
Nick was exceptionally knowledgeable, professional and personable while helping me find the right role.
BCL Legal is a great recruitment firm. I found Gishan Abeyratne based in Birmingham very helpful, supportive and personable.
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.
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 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.
I will definitely not hesitate in recommending BCL to other people.
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.

BCL Legal were great throughout my recruitment process. Their insight of different law firms really allowed me to understand and get the role I wanted. I could not recommend BCL enough.
BCL Legal were extremely helpful when we opened a Manchester office. Winning our quarterly recruitment competition, we hope to continue our excellent relationship for years to come.
I can’t recommend highly enough their down to earth, relaxed and very professional manner. I always feel that BCL Legal has my best interests in mind when recommending and sourcing roles.
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 wanted to contact you to thank you for putting me forward for a fantastic opportunity in private practice. I happened to speak to you by chance, and you were very proactive in identifying an opportunity that I may not have otherwise have considered.
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.
