• I had not directly worked with Matthew or Beach Baker previously but over many years during my time at CBRE and Black Cat Matthew was the only recruitment agent in Bristol that was repeatedly mentioned amongst my peers. Accordingly when the time came for us to recruit at Black Cat it was natural for me to call Matthew. I am delighted that I pursued my instinct as within a short period of time of contacting Matthew he had secured us the right candidate.

    Matthew was very attentive and proactive throughout the recruitment process and it was Matthew encouraging me along rather than the other way around. I was particularly pleased that Matthew suggested some candidates that were not always exactly what we were targeting but who might interest us for other reasons.

    We will certainly use Matthew and Beach Baker for our next recruitment requirement, which we hope will be towards the end of 2022.

  • Beach Baker helped me back into the workplace 7 years ago, after I’d had a career break to raise a family and have continued to support me ever since. My success in finally achieving the role I’ve always dreamed of, was due to Rupert’s assistance in putting me forward. I highly recommend Beach Baker to help you further your career.

  • Katrina helped me clearly identity all my of my career goals before matching me with a role in a company that will push my career forward and give me the positive move that I needed to grow.

    I really felt she understood the type of culture I was looking for in a company and that she worked hard to make sure I got the best possible deal once I had received an offer.

    Amazingly supportive and professional I would trust Katrina with any career move.

  • Katrina was extremely helpful throughout the process of securing my new position. She was around whenever I called and responded to emails promptly. Katrina was a great sounding board and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her services to anyone looking for a new role in the planning and property sector.

  • I would definitely recommend Katrina and Beach Baker, throughout the whole process Katrina has been a friendly face and soundboard. Whilst on the hunt for a new job I spoke to multiple recruiters however Katrina/ Beach Baker stood head and shoulders above the rest, there was no pressure and she was totally supportive throughout. Ultimately the process ended with Katrina helping me secure a new job which I truly love

  • A big thank you to Rupert at Beach Baker who made finding me a new role in Bristol really straightforward. He kept me updated and informed throughout the process and helped me secure a great job, would highly recommend!

  • I have used Matthew now for 3 jobs, most recently to be placed at Cathedral Schools Trust. I am always met with a friendly voice down the phone and if he says he will send something or call back etc, he always does. What I really appreciate is that he will contact me whether the news is good or bad with feedback. So many recruiters do not do this after you have put your cv forward for something or had an interview and it’s very disappointing. I have recommended Matthew to many people and should I ever require a recruiter, I would definitely call Matthew and Beach Baker.

  • Rupert and the Beach Baker team have now sought a few high quality interim candidates in recent years for the University. I really value the way he conducts the work of interrogating our requirements, with warmth and genuine interest which is then employed to ensure that the best people for the role can be put forwards. Bringing on board new interim staff is sometimes a tricky thing, but I trust Beach Baker to help us to find the right solutions

  • It has been an absolute pleasure to liaise with Katrina throughout my journey of finding a new role. Katrina is extremely kind, proactive and personable and just all-round great at her job! Right off the bat, she was very prompt in getting the ball rolling in terms of getting to know me, my interests and what sort of role I was interested in. She then wasted no time in chatting to relevant companies on my behalf and securing interviews for me. Ahead of these interviews, Katrina provided extremely useful background information on the companies, key contacts, examples of projects etc - all incredibly valuable in building up an understanding of what the various roles could be like day-to-day. I would absolutely recommend Beach Baker and especially Katrina to anyone looking for roles within the industry - their involvement not only speeds up the process but takes out some of the stress and paperwork side of things so that you can focus on learning about prospective companies and preparing for interviews. Many thanks again!
