Testimonials

  • Working with Michael was a pleasure and I’d highly recommend him to anyone looking for a new position in Town Planning.

    Michael's communication was excellent and he used a variety of communication methods (email, phone, text) to suit my availability. Michael adopted a very personable manner which is a natural skill for him and complements this with a hard working and determined attitude.

    Michael worked hard to understand my background and find a role that was right for me, not just filling a space with one of his clients.

    I appreciated Michael’s honesty and feedback throughout the process. It was very helpful to bounce ideas off of him and get his input on opportunities when they appeared.

    I would certainly contact Michael in the future again for recruitment needs, either as a candidate or employer.

  • Marie placed me at Hartnell Taylor Cook. Professional and knowledgeable from start to finish and listened to my needs. A lovely touch to receive a card at my office saying congratulations. 1st class recruitment and highly recommend Marie and Beach Baker.

  • I was very pleased with the quality of service received from Beach Baker in securing my new role. Rupert was highly attentive and made sure I was kept informed throughout the process. He took the time to fully understand my requirements before suggesting suitable roles and opportunities.

    All in all, a highly professional and transparent process allowed for a relatively stress-free and positive recruitment experience. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Rupert and Beach Baker again if required and would highly recommend to any organisations or individuals seeking recruitment advice.

  • My experience with Michael was brilliant and I’d highly recommend him.

    The ability to communicate and explain various work based cultures with my personality in mind was quite remarkable and his honest and transparent views were highly appreciated. I also understand that, throughout the process, Michael (after hours of conversation) was a formidable advocate for me as a candidate which I greatly appreciate.

    Thank you for all you work

  • After an initial chat with Marie, I felt instantly understood and supported on what my needs were for making my next career move. She provided me with guidance and support throughout the whole process of taking on a new role, from selecting a list of firms which felt like the right fit; securing me an interview fairly quickly and helping on negotiations and sorting my contract once I secured a job offer. I would highly recommend her - having spoken to a range of recruitment agents, she was by far the most supportive, knowledgeable and a great communicator!

  • We (Avon Fire & Resuce Service) used Beach Baker to support us on the recruitment for our Head of Estates role. We’d received a recommendation for them and weren’t disappointed. Beach Baker were able to source a relevant selection of strong candidates to put forward to our role and we were delighted to shortlist 2 candidates for interview and appoint one of them. They provided an efficient, professional and proactive service and we’d be happy to use them again for our future recruitment needs.
