Cawston Press have worked with BPE for a number of years as we continue to strengthen the overall capability and experience of our executive team. Key recent assignments have included Supply Chain and Marketing Director roles. We have found BPE to be a thoroughly professional partner who are well connected and able to understand our organisation, culture and technical needs.
Working with Paul is always a pleasure. Paul takes the time to get to know you as a client and hiring manager to help him find the right match of candidates. He has an excellent team behind him that do a fantastic job mapping the market. Paul always provides a very focused short list of candidates that are spot on – he always seems to really get what you are looking for. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Paul and his team.
Mike worked in partnership with us to really understand what we were looking for and ensure he targeted candidates that could make a real step change in the role and grow in the future. Mike presented a thorough shortlist and ensured all the candidates were supported through the process. We now have the right person in the role and the feedback from the line manager and candidate is extremely positive regarding Mike and bpesearch.
bpesearch delivered an impressive shortlist and we’ve hired an outstanding individual from a process that was thorough, professional and joined up with the key stake holders in our business. Andy provided valuable counsel, guidance and expertise at each step of the way by listening to our needs and challenging where appropriate. He clearly demonstrated the value in our choosing a search partner that brings insight, knowledge and understanding of the market place in which he operates. We’re thrilled with the appointment we’ve made and more so having been able to secure an individual that helps to further provide gender balance to our senior leadership team
Appointing a new Marketing Director was a crucial building block in completing our Senior Leadership Team. This meant being absolutely clear on the brief and in selecting the right search partner. bpesearch spent the time in scrutinizing as well as challenging the brief to ensure there was clear alignment on not only the skills and experience required, but the mind-set and attitude of someone who would have the ability to help take us and our marketing forward in a significant way. The process was excellent and robust, but equally flexible and adapted to our needs. Most importantly, they invested time to learn who we are and what makes us different, and then brought this to life in an authentic manner enabling candidates to see the beating heart of our business. We were highly impressed with the calibre of the shortlist and are thrilled with the quality of the appointment. We are very happy to have partnered with bpesearch and we would most certainly recommend them as an Executive Search partner.
bpesearch have supported a number of key strategic appointments to help us improve the capability of our leadership team. They took time to really understand our business, culture & needs and constantly offered good counsel and guidance during the process. Every candidate they have recommended has been extremely well briefed and well prepared for interviews and the team have kept in touch throughout notice and onboarding periods.
We had not worked with bpesearch before but were impressed with the approach to the task and the clarity of process that they brought. The project was executed swiftly and with just the right amount of attention and contact from our side. They delivered an excellent shortlist of candidates with a very interesting range of backgrounds and attributes. Ultimately we ended up with a great final choice whom we anticipate will make a step difference to our business.”
Working with the team at bpesearch was an excellent experience. They take an extremely hands on approach to placing candidates – in my case they not only found me a great role and prepared me thoroughly throughout the selection procedure, but gave me real honesty and clarity around every aspect of the job and team I would be joining. bpesearch is now the first call I make when I want to find a new challenge – and also when I need to strengthen my own senior leadership team.
bpesearch have been a valued partner for Experian for several years. We’ve shared some good successes in attracting talent into our business, and the bpesearch team have always been engaged, responsive and professional in working with us. Their knowledge of local talent markets, coupled with strong personal networks, has been of great value.
The quality of the candidates and shortlist presented speaks volumes for the way that BPE Search worked on our behalf. We had an unenviable task selecting from an incredibly strong talented group. It therefore goes without saying that we are thrilled with our new appointment. Our thanks go to Andy and the team. We would highly recommend BPE Search and would be delighted to work with them again.
Partnering with bpesearch is always a hugely positive experience from start to end. We involved their consultants in the early scoping phase of projects and we have found that the market insight and consultative approach they bring gives us a competitive advantage in the building of profiles and teams. There is no doubt that this has paid dividends in the recruitment process.
I was pleased to have worked with bpesearch on a very senior appointment within my executive committee. They were hugely collaborative, communicative and very able to match my requirements to their network in order to deliver a really compelling shortlist within the agreed tight time schedule and ultimately a great recruitment result for us.
