Permanent Roles

We pride ourselves in finding our Clients the perfect person available in the market that is the right for their business and its culture with a service that is expedient and knowledgable. A high volume of business via referral ensures we work with like minded clients who share our values of accountability, integrity, pride, inclusion, tenacity and trust. Many of our Clients have worked with us for more than 10 years.

In a crowded market, Bain and Gray stands out for a number of reasons. Primarily for our long established Candidate relationships and extensive network of market talent.

How do we reach the best talent for our Clients?

Our EA, PA and office support candidate network are loyal to us, when they register with us they receive;

  • mentoring and career advice
  • market knowledge
  • interview advice and how best to approach their job search
  • advice on the best companies to work for
  • salary expectations are managed

Our candidates stay connected to our network through our unique Links platform offering them resources and insights as part of their wider career development. This creates a unique Bain and Gray candidate community allowing our Clients access to a broad reach of talent in the market, who, for the right opportunity, might be open to hearing about various roles, but are not marketing themselves out actively.

Our long standing relationships with some of the best secretarial and PA business colleges in the UK where we give informed career talks and offer students' work experience, means we have unique access to the Alumni of the Colleges. We get to know the students from when they start their job search after graduating, and are continually building connections with some of the best Universities in the UK, allowing us to remain in touch with the graduates throughout their careers, allowing us to reach the best and most highly skilled Candidates when searching for EA, PA and secretarial vacancies for our Clients.

We continuously invest in our advertising and marketing budget, constantly reviewing and tailoring our strategy to reach the best and most suitable Candidates for each of our Client's search requirements and job roles. Bain and Gray have continued success through the tenacity of our Consultants, and our dedicated Resourcer team using our unrestricted budget to search deep into the market for the best outcome for our Clients.

Our service to you

All of that said, it is the experience of your Consultant that showcases the service from Bain and Gray. As a business we invest heavily in training and provide ongoing coaching and mentoring to ensure our Consultants are as informed as possible to provide you with an exceptional recruitment experience. We strive to work collaboratively as a team to provide an expedient service. The Consultants do not work to targets, they are motivated by providing exceptional tailored service, client satisfaction and brainstorming as a team to give their Clients the right focus and the time needed to provide the best recruitment solution.

Our Clients will always be met face to face by our Consultants where possible. We provide the high calibre EA, PA and secretarial qualities with the right company work culture, by gaining a knowledge on the history and unique requirements of your vacancy both in skillset, experience, diversity and personality. This is key to a targeted and focussed shortlist, saving you time and delivering the right results.
