Meet the Bain and Gray Team

Emotionally Intelligent Recruitment

“Working in partnership with individuals and businesses to deliver a best in class service. Providing continuous investment in our team, engaging with exceptional talent and acting as trusted consultants to provide personable, tailored excellence.”

Bain and Gray have a unique approach to recruitment in that we don't make our consultants work to targets and we don't believe in chasing clients for business.

All our clients are recommended and referred to us and we are incredibly proud that our consultants have all approached us directly to work at Bain and Gray.

We encourage our team to focus on client care and a transparent style to recruitment; rather than a quick fix approach. We insist on working as a team, and all consultants are involved with client briefings and candidate interviews. We do not search on databases but concentrate on candidate fit and matching for long-term success.
