“Superb Service”

Written on: 21/05/2015

I first contacted BMS in March 2015 and was asked to come along and meet the recruiters so they could really get to know me and help me find the ideal job. They were very honest with me and gave me some great advice to prepare me for an interview which I had never received before from other recruitments. It only took a few weeks to find a great opportunity for me to apply for, I was well prepared and informed on the phone and confirmation on email the details of the job and timings etc. They… Read Full Review

“Hollie Adams - BMS Graduate Recruitment”

Written on: 21/05/2015 by Ashanti143 (1 review written)

Before attending the BMS assessment day, I was slightly sceptical about the results I would receive. However I was very happily surprised by the friendly members of staff and Hollie's guidance and support. Even before the assessment day Hollie had contacted me and walked me through the process and answered all my questions in full. The process itself was very informative and the employers seeking candidates were of a high level. I would recommend using BMS and attending the assessment days and… Read Full Review

“A Very Good Agency For Graduates”

Written on: 20/05/2015 by 199Cooney (1 review written)

I was first contacted by BMS after I had applied for a job on line with Monster.com. They informed myself that they would like me to come to their Assessment Centre so they could see how I performed and interacted with others and if everything was successful I would be assigned an agent whom would help me with my job search. I turned up to the assessment centre a little nervous and this wasn't helped when I saw that there was over 50 people there. However, when I got upstairs and you realise… Read Full Review

“Professional and helpful”

Written on: 16/05/2015

The guys from the Salford office are very professional and extremely helpful. Having registered with a few job boards I was inundated with requests for my CV, along with a very enthusiastic phone call telling me how great I was and how easy it would be for them to find me the job of my dreams. Then you hear nothing from them, with BMS it was different they asked to see me in person and interviews lined up 10 minutes after my initial screening. I would not hesitate to endorse them for their… Read Full Review

“False advertising, time wasters....”

Written on: 10/05/2015 by 281Collins (1 review written)

Avoid, avoid, avoid!!! If you looking for job - believe me, invest your important time to look for job elsewhere and not through this agency. When I first time submitted my application for sales job - I had phone call on following day saying how good my CV is and they has few available positions perfectly suited for me...invited to their Coventry branch for interview... Went to see agent there (about 50 miles from where I live) & received great comments, and we agreed that I'll wait for update… Read Full Review

“Fantastic and professional ”

Written on: 07/05/2015 by Joshmatt1 (1 review written)

I found BMS to be fantastic, particularly the person in he Egham office who was the consultant that I dealt with, I had an initial interview with him to discuss my experience, kind of roles that I am looking for, what has led me to where I am now etc. and in the same interview he presented me with multiple open roles that I was suitable for, he told me all about each role and then asked me to put them in order of preference depending on how interested I was in each role. I had interviews… Read Full Review

“Not a clue on how to manage candidates ”

Written on: 28/04/2015 by Kane198 (1 review written)

Was contacted by the BMS office in Throgmorton Street near Bank in London. The person who interviewed me had this stuck up, arrogant, I'm so cool attitude that had the slightest bit of interest in listening to what kind of job one really wanted. I decided to give him a chance anyway as I didn't want to draw conclusions too soon. This guy only contacted me for one position which wasn't what I was entirely looking for and then he referred me to one of his colleagues who did actually arrange a… Read Full Review

“Thank you Stephen Dancy & BMS - Result!!”

Written on: 09/04/2015 by Halliec229 (1 review written)

BMS approached me after seeing my CV online, they asked me if I'd considered moving out of my retail banking background and I said yes I would consider other roles. Within one week I met with one of the consultants (who was professional and efficient) and went through my background and expertise. Within days I was told I had 5 interviews! The communication and urgency was outstanding, the persistence of the consultants from the South East FMCG team was incredible. By day 9 I had secured a job… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/04/2015

Found these guys to be very unprofessional.
Chased for me to come in for an interview. When I declined the tone changed and they advised me not to apply for any roles that fall under bms. I said rather harsh. To which I received lovely hang up.
So would not recommend these rather rude and small minded people at all.
Maybe who ever I spoke to got out of the bed the wrong side but actually disgusted with them !!!!!!!!!!!!

“Outstanding service ”

Written on: 09/04/2015

BMS approached me after seeing my cv online, they asked me if I'd considered moving out of my technology sales background and I said yes I would consider other roles. The next day I met one of the consultants and went through my background and experience and personal situation. The day after that I was told I had 3 interviews! The communication was excellent, the persistence of the consultants was incredible, the quality of the roles I was being put forward for was extremely high and I now have… Read Full Review

“Would use again! ”

Written on: 01/04/2015 by Nicothompson (1 review written)

I have to say out of all the recruitment agencies I have been with, I liked the fact you got to meet them face to face. I was offered 2 interviews within less than 2 months and I was offered a job. Couldn't be happier and the guy I dealt with was great! I was very well prepped for my interveiws and it it wasn't for him then I doubt I would be in the position i am in. Thank you!!… Read Full Review

“TERRIBLE !”

Written on: 23/03/2015 by ANDYMASE (1 review written)

I was chased by this agency as they stated positions were available that would suit me. However I had to travel to Warrington to meet the person I dealt with,! Who profiled me and advised he would find a suitable role for me. Four months later, with several sent emails from myself to him, not one position, not one Interview and not one reply of an email from him! Do not use this company, or maybe he who is the worst man-manager I have come across in any sort of business!!… Read Full Review

“False advertising, Good Assesment Centre, Don't fall...”

Written on: 22/03/2015 by KinleyBain1965 (1 review written)

Applied for a job role that suited my experience. The salary was listed as 25k. Applied for the role, received a response within 1 day. Had an initial screening telephone interview with the recruiter asking generic questions; why sales, what motivates you, asks about your past and present experience. Recruiter scheduled an appointment for the assessment centre. General advice was given on what to say, how to prepare and kindly offered to go over all of this over the phone at any time before the… Read Full Review

“Enjoyable recruitment day! and employed within a month”

Written on: 22/03/2015 by Kaleyu112 (1 review written)

Having attended and been successful at a competitor graduate recruitment company, I found BMS to be significantly more professional and attentive in their approach in finding me employment. Less sales cheese than said competitor and I felt like my specific needs were not overlooked in a desperate effort to meet their targets. I start work next week in my desired industry meeting both salary and location expectations and am very grateful for their insight and advice when helping me to secure my… Read Full Review

I have been forwarded for a group interview after applying for a sales role with BMS graduate, however I have read terrible reviews online. What was your experience of the group interview?

“Joke and waste of time!”

Written on: 19/03/2015 by Wood47 (1 review written)

Well, for a starter I am confident that all these "good" reviewes are written by the staff themselves! Read them and they are almost exactly THE SAME!!! I went to the assessment day, I have never experienced anything like that in my life! People were rude and made you feel like u were in school again! Rolling their eyes if they didn't like the answer and talking down to you! Usually when u go to the any sort of interview the company tries to make u feel at least wanted for that one day, hour or… Read Full Review

I totally agree with you, I experienced the same type of experience from the Coventry branch. Whilst I did not attend an open day, I did hAve to go and meet a 'consultant', have a chat, go through the cv. He said there was one job he wanted to put me forward for and that was the last I ever heard. I called and emailed but no positive response of any sort, I found it to be very demoralising

“My experience”

Written on: 16/03/2015 by lbury77 (1 review written)

BMS are very professional and helpful right from my first visit to their offices in Warrington. Russell supported me throughout the process and kept me informed throughout. Russell had the right balance between keeping me informed and supporting me. He was never demanding or pushy as other recruiters have been in the past. I would recommend BMS/Russell to anybody who is looking to make a career move or a career change… Read Full Review

“Can't recommend highly enough!”

Written on: 15/03/2015 by TomCampbell (1 review written)

Having avoided using recruitment agencies to assist me with gaining employment I came across a role advertised by BMS, as my background was in recruitment and this was something I was looking to move away from I called first to make an appointment. Within 3 weeks from making first contact BMS have helped me to secure a fantastic new role. At the interview stage the consultant really took the time to understand what I was looking for and what was important to me before discussing 2-3… Read Full Review
