Testimonials

Maria Coombe
Client
BranWell Ford was very accommodating from the beginning of our recruitment process and clearly has a thorough understanding of her marketplace. She was very helpful in managing the process and keeping momentum throughout and understood well the type of candidate we were hoping to attract. Hayley represented both us and the candidates with integrity and I would highly recommend her and BranWell Ford to clients and candidates alike."

Steven M. Kiwicz
Client
I have worked with a fair number of recruiting firms during my career both in the US and Globally and on various fee arrangements. I can truly say that Branwell Ford clearly is at the top of the list. They were extremely adept at assessing the candidates requirements and assisting us in preparing the offer. The whole process was seamless.
Martine McKenzie
DB Pensions Administrator.
I would like to recommend BranWell Ford, they were wonderful in helping me to secure my latest position. They explained what was expected from the job, kept me informed throughout and even sat on the end of the phone giving me directions when I got lost on my interview. I am very happy to have used the company.
Andy Davies
Pensions Administration Manager
"I cannot ask for a more professional outfit than Branwell Ford. From the beginning of the process to a successful conclusion, the team at BWF kept me fully updated and informed and if required, chased to a conclusion. They do not look to place people into roles that are outside of a person's skill sets and they know the regional marketplaces like they work in them - a refreshing change.
Tatyana Hicks
Pensions Administrator
I was made redundant from my pension admin job in London, while on maternity leave. Needless to say I was much saddened by the situation, so when BWF called me to check my whereabouts we had a good chat about change in my circumstances. Unlike other recruitment agencies, they never pushed me to put myself forward for a position which, in my opinion, did not suit my skills.
Laura Darwen
I spoke with Hayley early in my new job search. It was a little bit daunting to be looking for a new role but Hayley was supportive and helpful. She took the time to get to know me, helping me work out the best roles to apply for. Hayley and Amelia were very knowledgeable and helped me to refine my CV. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hayley and Amelia to anyone looking for a new role.

My experience with BranWell Ford has been exceptional and very special. Pretty much all my job interviews arranged through them have been a success. They take meticulous care in understanding your job requirements and working with you individually to ensure that they secure the right job with the right organisation.

In addition they also provide and build a fantastic relationship with their clientele and assist with preparations of interviews.

I highly recommend BranWell Ford and very privileged to have secured my jobs through them including my current job.

Kath D.
Senior Associate - Governance
I am grateful to Hayley and the team at BWF for their help in finding a suitable role. I was unsure of the market and if I could find a fully remote position. Hayley was very supportive and encouraging. I felt supported throughout the process and would recommend Branwell Ford without hesitation.
