• 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.

  • 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

  • Working with Michael was fantastic and I’d highly recommend him.

    His communication was excellent and his style was approachable and transparent. He worked hard to understand what I (as a candidate) was looking for in a role and we collaborated to identify suitable opportunities. He went the extra mile to build our working relationship by meeting me for coffee in-person before an interview to share his advice and to discuss my wider career aspirations.

    I appreciated Michael’s honesty and candour throughout the process and I feel like he was a valuable advocate for me throughout my job search.

    Michael will be the first person I contact for any future recruitment needs, either as a candidate or employer.
