Victoria Brown, Senior Consultant at Bain and Gray
‘I have worked in recruitment for many years and have always watched and admired Bain and Gray from afar. A cross roads in my career brought me to Bain and Gray back in September 2019 and I have never looked back!
The first 6 months, based in our amazing offices in Soho and the last year, during Covid, spent working from home.  I have loved being part of the B&G team and always felt supported and appreciated. The team are great and even through some fairly tough months we have managed to pull together, stay strong and positive and above all laugh!
We have some amazingly loyal candidates and clients and that speaks volumes about the fantastic company and brand that Emily and Claire have built over the last 10 + years. Always sticking to the core values that are at the heart of the company.
I have enjoyed my time at Bain and Gray and very excited about the future with such a talented team.   My only regret - not joining sooner!'

Charlotte Orford, Permanent Consultant
“Working for Bain and Gray is like a breath of fresh air!  The inclusive and team environment stripped of competitive sales targets leads for a much smoother recruitment process for both Candidates and Clients that come to Bain and Gray for assistance.  I feel that the emphasis in the office is about working together as a team rather than about self-gratification and this is reflected in the high success rate across the company.  Although I have been at Bain and Gray for only a short time, I already feel part of the Bain and Gray family.”
