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.
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 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.
Nick from BCL Legal was absolutely key in my recruitment process. He was responsive and supportive throughout, always taking the time to meet with me and answer any questions I had.
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 was impressed at how quickly our request was turned around and communication arranged between the candidates and ourselves. The candidates were of a very high standard
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.
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 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 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.
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.
Well I wanted to say thank you to you and the team at BCL Legal for all the help you have given me over the past few years.
BCL Legal are our preferred supplier. I have worked with them on vacancies at all of our UK offices. I am consistently impressed by their knowledge and understanding of our business.
Thank you for working so hard in getting me this position. You both spent so much time and put in such effort in arranging interviews , even working late into the evening.
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.
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 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 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 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.
When I needed to recruit, BCL found the type of person I was looking for and within a few days, I received four good CV’s, I would have been happy to offer a role to either of the two candidates.
I wouldn’t hesitate to use you if I needed to secure a new position in the future and definitely recommend other use your services.
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 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.
BCL have placed me in my last two roles: In both instances, the support and information provided was invaluable. They have been able to support my next career move each step of the way
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.
BCL Legal is a great recruitment firm. I found Gishan Abeyratne based in Birmingham very helpful, supportive and personable.
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 will definitely not hesitate in recommending BCL to other people.
I have found BCL Legal are always willing to give realistic appraisals, work hard to find the right candidates and clearly take the time to get to know the people that they work with.
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.
