For Candidates

When you come to Bain and Gray for help with your job search, you will experience straight away how we are different from other recruitment agencies. One of the most important reasons we stand out is that we put as much time and emphasis into our candidate care as we do of our clients. We get to know you as an individual, so we know we are putting you forward for the right jobs for you and your career.

There are many reasons why our candidates come back to us again and again, but one comment we hear repeatedly is that we treat job seekers very differently from other agencies. We listen, we care and we get results. We never push, and always advise, with candidates often coming to us as a sounding board when they have difficult decisions to make. We are always happy to guide you in your career, and our reputation proves this.
