Barr Ellison Solicitors
BWF Legal have been a supportive and efficient recruitment agent to Barr Ellison for a number of years. They understand our firm’s needs and excel at finding appropriate candidates.
Thoroughly recommend Pip for no nonsense recruitment advice. She has an outstanding ability to source fantastic candidates that closely match or exceed your spec. Not the usual fire everything at you and hope something sticks.
Pip at BWF Legal has been my go-to for the many years that I have recruited legal professionals into law firms in the East Anglia region. With a wide network of contacts, built over the years, and a deep understanding of the needs of the employer and the candidate, Pip instinctively knows the right fit for both.
Pip is a diamond. She goes the extra mile and then further to secure the best position. She’s busy but always has plenty of time to listen, give wise meaningful feedback and is an expert in her field. She knew what role would suit me and she helped me to ensure the best outcome.
Alison Hills
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the service that BWF have provided to me, and James in particular.

I have managed to secure my perfect role and it wasn't an easy find given that I am located in St Albans at the moment and we also had to try and arrange a remote interview whilst I was out in France!

James has been fantastic; listened to exactly what I was looking for and managed to secure the interview for me for my perfect role. He has also kept me up to date promptly and I couldn't have asked for a better service.

Thank you!
Family Solicitor

Pip was very helpful in securing my current role in the legal sector. She made the process smooth and kept me up to date with all developments. Pip provided me with preparing for the interview and was a phone call or email away if I ever had any questions.
Z. Osman
Legal Professional
My experience with Pip has been nothing short of excellent. Pip is very friendly and works effortlessly to ensure good communication with myself and my new employer. She found the perfect role for me and was very attentive to my needs. I would not hesitate to recommend Pip to anyone who is looking for their next role."
