Our Clients

Here at BMC Recruitment Group, developing long term client partnerships through consistent and transparent service is crucial to our success. Don’t just take our word for it; read our testimonials below to discover how we’ve supported our clients’ growth.

Jon Hurford – Finance Director, O’Brien Waste Recycling Solutions

O’Brien Waste Recycling Solutions have used BMC Recruitment Group for a number of appointments in the past financial year. Our business has been through some important strategic changes and it has been key that we recruit the right people into key roles into the business. I have been impressed with BMC’s approach from the outset. I valued David investing time early on to fully understand the strategy and needs of our business, and he responded by aligning his candidates exactly to our requirements. The quality of the people we have seen has been excellent, and I have never felt that we are sent people just to ‘make up the numbers’. My view of a relationship with a recruitment agent is that of a partnership. David and his team understand this and work with us to place the right people at the right time. David’s background is very commercial, and this is of huge benefit to his business as he can guide his team to fill actual business needs of BMC’s clients, as opposed to simply pursuing the sale. BMC are flexible, attentive and excellent to work with. I value their integrity and would have no hesitation recommending them to other businesses for a long-term relationship.

Brett Jacobson – Managing Director, Mediaworks

Mediaworks have used BMC Recruitment Group to manage a number of key projects for us over the last 18 months or so. Our business is very fast paced and given we operate in the digital space, our requirements can change weekly to meet both client demands and changes in technology. They have hired people at all levels for us, including telesales, SEO, account management, web development and finance. They also oversaw a high volume campaign to hire a large number of apprentices for us. Both David Blair and David Lovenbury operate with a high level of integrity, transparency and honesty and I would not hesitate in recommending them and BMC to any other business.

Manprit Randhawa – VP Finance, Onbone Oy

We have worked with BMC Recruitment Group on a number of positions over the last year, covering supply chain, finance and administrative support. Our experience has been superb and they have successfully filled every mandate on which they’ve worked within fairly tight timeframes. More than that, the service levels, communication and general quality of the candidates they have supplied has been excellent. David and his team invested the time upfront to get to know Onbone, our business and our culture and that understanding of how we operate is clear in the accurate matching of candidates. We’ve worked with a number of the BMC team and the consistency of service together with the honest and personable communication style is impressive. We consider them to be a key partner for Onbone as we continue our rapid growth over the next few years and would highly recommend them.

Phil Hindsley – Leading the Ecoproducts and Water Treatment Business, Huntsman Pigment & Additives

I wholeheartedly endorse BMC Recruitment Group and Andrew as a recruitment expert. Andrew led a retained recruitment exercise for my company, succeeding where others had failed, in providing a successful candidate for a senior FD appointment, given specific and exacting criteria. Andrew is also one of those recruiters with whom you enjoy working with, as he understands requirements and ensures delivery through remaining close to his client and maintaining an excellent stock of candidates.

Andrew Reagan – Finance Director, Spooner Vicars Bakery Systems

Andrew was instrumental in finding me an alternative senior finance position. He gave good, honest impartial advice about the work environment, my expectations and the requirements of the market. He is approachable with a professional yet personable character and I would recommend him without reservation. I am still enjoying my new FD position and would not hesitate to use Andrew in future.

Mark Wiltosz – Area Manager – MENA & Caspian, EV Offshore Limited

On a recent recruitment project, I contacted BMC Recruitment Group and in particular David Gallagher for some assistance as we have had some previous dealings for prior positions. BMC provided a high quality set of candidates who were all of the experience and background that accurately fitted the JD. The effort and follow up that was put in from start to finish on this position from BMC allowed us to place the correct candidate for the position. Thanks a lot for your help in the past and supporting our business going forward.

Gary Shewan – Service Delivery Manager, Insure the Box

Hannah was a pleasure to work with. Very attentive in the initial requirements meetings, and very communicative and helpful as the Interviews progressed. Good candidates and resulting in a successful hire. Can't ask for more.

David Stark – Finance Director, Avid Technology

Having experience of using different agencies throughout my career, I am impressed by the relaxed but professional (and sensitive) handling of a recent recruitment assisted by BMC. Time was taken to get to know our business and more importantly our culture and an ideal candidate was put forward who is turning out to be a perfect fit in our organisation.

Paul Crawford – Operations Director, Infinium IT

I got in touch with BMC Recruitment Group after we needed an urgent Service Desk Analyst to join our team. Hannah took the time to understand the requirements of the role and the team environment. Hannah also provided a really quick turnaround on suitable candidates, which lead to a successful hire and a great addition to the team. I would highly recommend using BMC and have since asked Hannah to help with our current recruitment needs.


I have found the team at BMC to be enthusiastic and knowledgeable. They have an honest approach and deliver what they promises. They are reliable and not afraid to ask questions in order to give the best service to the client. They are easy to work with and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend BMC.

Doosan Babcock

We have found BMC very pro-active and they tend to be one step ahead. Their proposals are clear and precise and communication as tasks proceed is excellent. Any candidates put forward to us seem to be very well versed and of a good quality . I don’t seem to get any issues with BMC placements as usually BMC deal with candidate issues long before I hear about them. I would have no hesitation in recommending the team at BMC, in fact I would & have highly recommended the BMC team to my peers as well as others.
