  • My team and I have used BWP & Nick's services for several years. What distinguishes Nick is his ability to fully understand the requirements of the role, and presents a tightly curated list of candidates who conform to our expectations. Our "hit rate" is very good, with a high rate of offers extended. And the candidates sourced by Nick are not just local. They are sourced from a global talent pool, which is vital especially when we expand into new business domains.
    Amit Pathare , Group Director of New Solutions, Engie


  • I have worked with Nick and BWP on a number of occasions in the past. Nick is a very ethical, resourceful and well connected professional. He has a very strong background and network, I recommend you as an expert to consider BWP for anything appropriate.

  • BWP consistently provide very high quality candidates which accurately mirror the demands of the projects and clients due to their extensive knowledge of the industry and client requirements. I would highly recommend them without question in the first instance for all executive construction and infrastructure placements and look forward to working with BWP long into the future.

  • I have known BWP through the recruitment of staff since early 2013. Throughout this period they have always responded both positively and promptly in providing CV’s of suitable candidates at various levels. It is quite clear that they understand the Client’s requirements whilst also having consideration for the Candidate’s needs. The overall approach of  BW&P, is professional and yet low key, and that is why I shall continue to offer BWP the opportunity to provide solutions to my recruiting needs in the future.
