“They got me a job in 4 weeks”

Written on: 28/08/2014 by tfitzgerald (1 review written)

I had previous bad experience with BMS whereby I suffered many of the inadequacies posted here in other bad reviews. However, I reached out to them one more time and was dealt with very professionally. They brokered me an interview with a great company and after a pretty exhaustive process I secured an offer in 4 weeks. BMS kept me informed throughout and also continued to market me until my offer was secured. Would I use them again? Sure, why not. But hopefully I won't need to… Read Full Review

“I was called by BMS regarding the role of BDM for ADI...”

Written on: 27/08/2014 by JasonCritchley (1 review written)

I was called by BMS regarding the role of BDM for ADI Group. Having spoken with the staff at the Warrington branch, I was then transferred to Rochelle Hewitt at their Coventry branch. I went through a 3 stage interview for which I was fully briefed and given specific details for each stage of the interview, help and advice from Rochelle and then her colleague Eddy while Rochelle was on holiday. I cannot thank Rochelle enough for all the friendly help, advice, detailed briefs which enabled… Read Full Review

“Sales Role”

Written on: 23/08/2014 by Dominguezzo184 (1 review written)

I saw job role advertised by this company that I was interested in so sent over my CV. They asked me to pop in to discuss so I took half a day off to go and see them as they are not local to me. What a waste of time, I have not heard back from them at all. After speaking to a friend of mine about them apparently this is normal for them to ask people to attend interviews and then hear nothing back. Very unprofessional and time wasters… Read Full Review

“Best Agency I was registered with”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by cjslewis88 (1 review written)

I spotted a job online that I was interested in applying for, attached was a phone number to contact BMS, after calling I quickly and genuinely felt that they cared about what job I wanted to achieve and they instilled faith in me that they believed i could achieve it, they asked me to send them my CV and later that day they phoned me back and asked me to come into an interview with them, they were interested in my CV and listened to what i wanted to achieve, they were different to other… Read Full Review

“Absolute rubbish and not worth the effort”

Written on: 19/08/2014

Absolutely rubbish, anyone who says they are good must be working for them. Agree with last response not replying to emails, phone calls and being unprofessional from the start. Came in for a interview with bms, booked half day off work and at least would appreciate some professional behaviour and acknowledgement from them but nope, they are rude and a waste!… Read Full Review

“Very unprofessional”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by Izaiahk319 (1 review written)

I was given an interview for a job that I said to them I did not really want, but thought I would go to the interview anyway for experience. Before the interview they gave me some advice, which was some of the worst advice I have ever been given (well maybe not but im trying to get my point across) I decided to ignore them and go my own way. I got through the first stage of the interview (without their help). So when it came to the second stage I knew what was coming from them, (BMS) more… Read Full Review

“P.P.Q - (PISS,POOR,QUALITY)”

Written on: 11/08/2014 by SincerePhillips354 (1 review written)

BMS, in a nut shell.... Utter DOGS REAR. This is from recruiters not calling back, communicating via email or simply just been passed around. Recruiters are like estate agents, talk the talk, but can't walk the walk. They will clearly help you if you have been in position for over 4 years and will give you that time. but when, you have been made redundant, left a job for your own accord, they just don't give a DOGS REAR. There excuse with me, is i've moved a round, of which I have, due to… Read Full Review

“Effiecient at finding me a new career within 8 weeks”

Written on: 10/08/2014 by yxLawson151 (1 review written)

Coming from the hospitality industry into sales was daunting but the team at Bristol BMS were really reassuring after an initial meeting. They really listened to my requirements and made all potential employers aware of my lack of experience so they didn't send me all over the country for pointless interviews. I had two interviews and succeeded in getting a fantastic role on the second job offer. I had to do a presentation which Id never done before and the advisor was extremely helpful in… Read Full Review

I signed with bms bristol to help find a new career after moving house. being brand new to the sales industry was worried id get sent rubbish job roles constantly. bms Bristol were fussy with the jobs they offered me and listened to my requirements. so much so I only had two interviews and have been offered my perfect job today. not only this but having no experience with presentations etc they had an excellent support contact who helped me every step of the way. I cant thank them enough… Read Full Review

“Truly understands what candidates are after”

Written on: 08/08/2014 by the427 (1 review written)

I had the pleasure of dealing with BMS in May 14 after being made redundant from a previous role. Having already spoken to a few recruiters who asked "what are you looking for" and then proceeded to tell me about roles that were a lower price bracket than I wanted and not in the industry I wanted, I was dubious of the service I would receive, thankfully I was wrong. From the initial interview meeting I knew BMS were a cut about the rest. They seemed to take a genuine interest in my career to… Read Full Review

“Great Service from BMS - Senior Sales Role”

Written on: 08/08/2014 by Jon1975 (1 review written)

I have just used BMS to find my next role. The service and advice has been excellent from start to finish and stands head and shoulders over the assistance provided by most other agencies. The quality of roles BMS were recruiting for was also excellent, and coupled with their specific and intelligent advice relating to individual interview situations and scenarios, the entire process was a pleasure. I have no hesitation in recommending BMS for anyone searching for a new sales role… Read Full Review

“Poorly Run”

Written on: 07/08/2014 by joe12344 (1 review written)

I applied for a graduate job in Manchester and was told that my assessment day would be in Coventry. That was no problem and drove down to what I believed would be a fair assessment day. When we went in, the woman began the assessment day by telling us that none of them had looked at our CV's and it was all based down to the day; which is fair enough if it allowed you to portray what skills you obtain, but they didn't. The moderators were very patronising to candidates, no food provided for a… Read Full Review

“Great experience. My contact at BMS has always been...”

Written on: 05/08/2014

Great experience. My contact at BMS has always been transparent with me and and kept me informed throughout the whole process. Unlike most agencies when you register with BMS they really do go out to find a job that matches the skill set of their candidate and have certainly delivered for me. I start my new role in a couple of weeks and I'm certainly looking forward to it. I can't thank them enough and I know that they will always be my 1st choice when I'm looking to progress my career. Thanks… Read Full Review

I didn't have to think twice about calling BMS again when I was looking to move on. It's the second time I've used them (first was 2 1/2 years ago) The Warrington office teamare fantastic. I told them exactly what I was looking for - strategic career move - and the delivered. They didn't just throw any old job they had at me, which I liked as other recruitment compaies had done. Thier knowledge on their client was fantastic and they FULLY prepared me for every stage, so nothing was a Suprise… Read Full Review

“Brilliant from Start to Finish”

This is the second time that I have used BMS to find a job and both times they have been amazing. They are very professional and only got in touch with me about jobs that were suitable based on what I was looking for. The jobs that they have a great and the whole experience has been very positive. I have been at my present company (where they placed me) for well over four years now. The person who was my contact and she was excellent. She is so positive, great to work with, friendly… Read Full Review

“Amateurs!! Never again....and I used to work for them!! ”

Written on: 28/07/2014 by Rogelio169 (1 review written)

I see things have not changed in BMS over the years. I worked for them for over a year in one of their regional offices. To say things have remained stagnant would be an understatement. I saw recently that they were advertising a role I was very interested in and had the relevant experience. I applied and had a chat with a guy in their office who asked me to call in. When I did I was told I would be meeting on of their execs. Turns out this exec did not have a clue about the industry she was… Read Full Review

“Excellent recruitment company - Dream job”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by Hoffmanoc413 (1 review written)

BMS have been fantastic in helping me with my move into medical device sales. Oliver Fox in particular has been great, every time he went into detail about each position and made sure I was suitable for the role and more importantly that the role/benefit package was suitable for me, he spent time preparing me properly for each interview by giving me lots of relevant info, he even looked over my presentations which made me extremely confident going into each interview.

“Graduate No Brainer”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by VeryHappyGraduate (1 review written)

After applying to multiple graduate jobs following finishing my degree course and feeling pretty despondent about the whole graduate application process, BMS invited me to an assessment day and really turned it around for me. BMS firstly got to know the real me and established what I was looking for in my working and professional life (whether that be salary related or what motivates me as a worker). Then, a series of assessments were to be completed by myself (either in a group or individual… Read Full Review

“Brilliant company & people to deal with”

Written on: 18/07/2014 by derbyderby2014 (1 review written)

Took only 8 days from a interview at the Coventry office to me securing a perfectly fitting role. The person I dealt with put me forward for roles only after discussing them with me first and walked me through me approach every step of the way for the 1st & 2nd interview. I put my CV out there with a number of different recruitment agencies and only BMS stand out as not just chucking my CV about to anyone that will take a look. If you don't want to waste your time I would recommend using BMS… Read Full Review
