Whether you’re looking for temporary, part-time or permanent work, we can help you find your perfect first job, as you start climbing your chosen career ladder.

Our recruitment process

Signing up to an agency can take the stress out of job hunting – and becoming a candidate at Bain and Gray is easy. There are several ways you can come to us: you can email your CV to or you can apply for jobs we advertise on sites such as Secs in the City. Or you can simply call us on 020 7036 2030.

Graduate opportunities

Focus your search specifically on graduate and first jobs, and you’re immediately in the right market. Potential employers are looking for your skills and experience, and the salary, expectations and opportunities will be at the right level. Over the past few years, the number of graduate office jobs has increased considerably. New, innovative tech companies, and online retail and service platforms, are especially keen to recruit and nurture young talented people in their businesses.

What salary can you expect?

Each year, we conduct a salary survey to benchmark earnings across industries. This will give you a good indication of what you can expect to earn in the job you’re looking for. It’s important to remember that different industries command different salaries, and you need to be clear about what you want from your career. Higher salaries tend to be in the financial and corporate sectors, so if you’re keen to work in a more creative environment, you’ll probably find your rewards in the experience you gain rather than in the money you earn. We can guide you on this as part of your registration with us.

Why choose Bain and Gray?

We pride ourselves on looking after our candidates. The benefits of being a Bain and Gray candidate include careers advice, such as CV-writing tips and interview guidance, giving you the confidence to get the job you deserve. We’re always here to support you, using our industry knowledge to help further your career. We stay in touch with our candidates, and they come back to us again and again – because we offer the best opportunities and because they know we’ll look after them.
