The team at Bain and Gray were fantastic. They were incredibly efficient, setting me up with a number of interviews within days of me registering with them. I really appreciated that they put me forward for roles that suited my interests and long-term career goals and am really happy with the position I accepted. Hetty has been so friendly and approachable throughout and I would definitely go back to Bain and Gray again. I’ve already recommended them to several friends.

Ruby Weaver, Bain and Gray candidate

Due to the recent merge of the company, there have been several new roles created, and Bain and Gray have been instrumental in our recruitment process providing us with excellent candidates every time. The personal service they provide is outstanding taking into consideration our timelines and requirements well, finding the right cultural fit and as a result we have highly engaged and professional employees they have sourced for us.

Jigna Kamble, Senior HR Manager Marriott Hotels

I just wanted to write a brief email to say an enormous thank you to you and the rest of the team for all your help and support. You have been absolutely wonderful and by far the most reliable and honest agency I have had contact with. I have had total confidence in you and your advice throughout the past few months, and am absolutely thrilled to accept this job. You have made what seemed almost unobtainable a reality. I will certainly be recommending you to any friends or connections in the future.

Lydia Straughan, Bain and Gray candidate

Bain and Gray have supported me since the start of my career and I have nothing but fabulous things to say about them. They encourage ambition and having worked with them on both sides they provide a personalised service for both candidate and recruiter

Sarah Hackett, Bain and Gray candidate

I’ve had my fair share of meetings with countless recruiters and agencies and Bain and Gray and their consultant particularly, really are exceptional. My initial meeting with the consultant was a major confidence boost and a much needed one! She is so friendly and warm, honest and helpful. She constantly urged me to aim higher to get to the next level of my career – without her guidance and support, I would probably still be at my old job, unhappy and not really achieving to my full potential. She sent me for interviews in companies that I would never have dreamed of working for and each one proved to be a great confidence boost.

I have been in my current role for two months now and I am loving it! Thank you to Bain and Gray and their consultant for everything you did to help me land this job, taking my career to wonderful new heights. I am forever grateful and could not recommend you guys enough. THANK YOU!

Angelica Alu, Bain and Gray candidate

I cannot recommend Bain and Gray highly enough. The service I have always received has been honest, efficient and professional. The consultant at Bain and Gray worked to my timeline and the candidates I met were of a very high standard.

Jog Dohdy, CFO at Regenersis

Bain and Gray were outstanding and it was a pleasure to deal with them. I enjoyed the openness and honesty, as well as the professionalism and reliability. Their consultant in particular was a delight and had me in a job within days of meeting me. I have also been impressed with Bain and Gray's aftercare and I know if I have any issues going forward, they will be there for me. I would highly recommend this agency


Zoi Mazluga, Bain and Gray candidate

I have been singing the praises of Bain and Gray this whole weekend. You guys have been absolutely amazing from the moment I registered. It has been a breath of fresh air dealing with you

Beverley Lowry, Bain and Gray candidate

Bain and Gray are our preferred Recruitment Consultants and have been for a number of years. The consultant at Bain and Gray understands our company ethos and takes a personal interest in ensuring that we meet candidates who are experienced, professional and of the high calibre we are looking for.  It is always a pleasure and never a chore to speak with her.  Bain and Gray pay attention to the details and that usually yields results. Have recommended them in the past and will continue to do so.

Karen Ashcroft, PA at E Oppenheimer & Son

Bain and Gray have been an absolute pleasure to work with in the short time it took them to find me a new role. I felt as thougtheir consultant understood me perfectly and my resulting job reflects exactly the challenge I was looking for.

Poppy Wooldridge, Bain and Gray candidate

Bain and Gray have provided a more professional and intuitive service than I could ever have hoped for. From the initial meeting I felt sure that Bain and Gray, out of the several agencies I had registered with, would be the ones to place me in my perfect role. Emily and the consultant at Bain and Gray understood my personality from the word go and immediately picked up on my need for a role which was a bit quirky and different. True to their word they only put me forward for suitable roles and within 10 days I had accepted an offer! It is clear that Bain and Gray adopt an attitude which leads them to aim high and succeed, and as it was my first experience of finding a job through an agency, it was so important to have people with that attitude supporting me.

Hannah Ponting, Bain and Gray candidate

We haven’t worked with Bain and Gray for long but in a very short time they have been extremely helpful and proactive and the quality of candidates has been fantastic. I would highly recommend Bain and Gray for support recruitment.

Vicki McKendrick-Ness, Human Resources at Sarasin & Partners

Bain and Gray have been amazing from the start, always finding me jobs with really lovely companies and handling everything in a very professional manner. They are always incredibly helpful and dealing with Carolyn has been a pleasure. She always makes sure everything goes smoothly, and has found temp roles to suit me and which I could fit in around my studies. 

Dina Harper, Bain and Gray candidate

Thank you for yours and your teams help in finding me a role. I truly believe you listened to me when I explained what I was looking for, and a month into this role you got it spot on. I am loving every minute of it, the people are highly welcoming and professional. I definitely made the right choice in coming to Bain and Gray exclusively. There will be many recommendations to you guys in the future!! I know from experience sometimes consultants do not get thanks for their hard work, but many deserve it as I know how stressful it can be! It was refreshing to meet like-minded experienced consultants like yourselves

Léah Quarterman, Bain and Gray candidate

Thank you again so much for all your help though, it has been very much appreciated and Bain & Gray is by far the best recruitment company I have ever registered with. 


Catherine Antignani, Bain and Gray candidate

Bain and Gray are simply great! The team are very good at matching candidates to the company’s needs and always remains professional and calm under pressure – including when we send over very last minute requests! Be it temporary or permanent positions, I highly recommend the team at Bain and Gray.

Charlotte Perry, Property PA & Interim EA to Azzurri Directors at Azzurri Group

 “Bain and Gray and their team are true partners to our business. They have taken time to understand us, our people, our culture and what it takes to be successful in our business; and then delivery on that. We have high standards, but their consultant doesn’t give up. Highly recommended!”

Sam Boon, Talent Acquisition at Odgers Berndtson

I would like to take this opportunity to say that Bain and Gray have been my favourite recruitment company during this process, and I will definitely be recommending you to others.

Isobel Bristol, Bain and Gray candidate

“From the start, Bain and Gray were attentive and listened to our requirements.   They kept in regular touch and presented us with a short-list of candidates all of whom had the attributes we required and we have chosen someone we are very happy with.  The whole process was swift and impressive and we were kept informed at every stage.  I am very happy with the service we were given.”

Carol Emmanuel, Business PA to Duke of Wellington

I don’t often write recommendations, but there are always exceptions! When we met, I was struck not only by your genuine warmth of personality, but your professionalism and knowledge in advising me on securing my first role. You work with a wonderful team at Bain and Gray, and your delight at my role being confirmed as permanent was genuine and heart-warming. I wholeheartedly endorse you and your company; I cannot speak highly enough of the work you have done. Thank you so much."


Georgia Lumb, Bain and Gray Candidate

"After trying long and hard on finding the job that I wanted, I had almost given up in recruiters. I had lost total faith and had resigned myself to a career of what I knew, not what I wanted. When I met with Bain and Gray, immediately I felt like I was being treated as an individual, with time, effort and care going into finding the job that I wanted and that I would enjoy. The team are a delight to deal they persevere and encourage, even when you feel like giving up! True professionals who are a cut above the rest, I cannot speak highly enough, if you are lucky enough to have them represent you, rest assured, you are in safe hands."


Paula Keirnan, Bain and Gray candidate

"Bain and Gray are incredibly professional and always at the other end of the phone when needed. The candidates sent through are by far of the highest quality - which makes it extremely hard to choose between candidates! Our requirements are listened to and  we are never sent through candidates that are unsuitable or are a poor fit for the role. Bain and Gray are an absolute pleasure to work with, always happy and welcoming and I can see no reason why I would work with another agency to recruit for an administrative role in the company."


Kelly Gallacher - General Manager, Alaco

"Emily and I have known each other for many years, from the days when I was hiring for EAs and Bain & Gray found me some fantastic candidates.  Now many years later, Emily and Tamsin have secured me my own uniquely matched role, even out in the depths of Surrey.  I'm thrilled and proud to have kept the connection with Bain and Gray for so long". 


Nikki Golestanian, Bain and Gray candidate

Your support and guidance through this whole process has been great and I know that your input really helped get me this role. Dealing with recruiters is sometimes not the best experience; from not listening and not providing you with the correct information (I have been to an interview this year, only to find out on arrival it was for a COMPLETELY different role than what I had been told and prepared for) but you have been informative, communicative and really supportive so a MASSIVE thank you to Alice, and of course the Bain and Gray team.

Sian Kelly, Bain and Gray candidate
