  • Michael was an absolute pleasure to work with. Took the time to understand what I wanted from my next role as opposed to sending over every opportunity which landed on his desk. He's also incredibly personable and has a great knowledge of the planning sector. Would highly recommend instructing Michael to help facilitate your next career move!

  • Despite having known Rupert professionally for over 15 years, this is the first time we had worked together on securing a position. Rupert has a detailed and thorough understanding of the surveying profession, which makes delivering on the brief for the employer and candidate far more streamlined. From the initial consultation Rupert provided clear direction on what the role entailed. This was a high profile role and Rupert's communication and level of detail throughout has been exemplary, particularly when conveying the requirements of both myself and that of Alder King.
    Rupert and Beach Baker are the go-to outfit for surveying and property resourcing solutions. I would absolutely recommend using Rupert and the team

  • At each juncture in my career I've worked with Rupert to help find my next challenge. In the most recent instance he helped me secure a role that will enable further career growth. As usual he provided a professional, discreet and highly responsive service. I've found his and Beach Baker's approachable manner and market knowledge second to none. I would not hesitate to recommend them to both employees and employers looking for the right match.

  • Rupert was fundamental to my new job search, he was incredibly responsive, always friendly and a pleasure to deal with, as well as being highly professional. He was able to send me a variety of opportunities that fitted my description, and ultimately helped to secure my new role which I am very pleased with. I would not hesitate to recommend Beach Baker and would certainly use them again.

  • Bath Spa University have recently used Beach Baker to support us on the recruitment for a Head of Estates Capital Projects role. We appointed them after failing to attract any successful candidates from our own advertising. We had a meeting with Matthew Clackson who suggested an effective recruitment campaign and was able to source a selection of strong candidates to put forward to our role. We were delighted to shortlist three candidates for interview and appointed one of them. Matthew provided an efficient, professional and proactive service and I would be happy to use Beach Baker again for our future recruitment needs in the Estates team.

  • Huge thanks to Matthew for helping me secure a new position with Rider Levett Bucknall. Matthew was very helpful through out the whole process helping me re-locate from Sydney to Bristol and kept in regular contact. Can't recommend Matthew & Beach Baker enough!

  • Matthew and I worked together during my geographical relocation to the South West. Matthew was approachable and hard working, providing me with several prospective opportunities across a range of organisations.
    Matthew approached me regarding the Head of Estates role at Avon Fire and Rescue Service, for which I was subsequently successful and accepted the position of. Throughout the process Matthew communicated regularly and clearly with me, he also managed my expectations regarding timeliness and provided great insight into the local career market. I would happily work with Matthew again and hope I may be able to employ his expertise in supporting any vacancies I require assistance filling.

  • 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.
