Sir Terry Farrell CBE
After moving to Melbourne from London, Bespoke found an excellent opportunity for me at BVN Architecture. The position has by far exceeded my expectations and I have found the work involved and fulfilling. Bespoke have proven to be a professional and skillful agency that I would recommend to any fellow architects.
From working with Bespoke for the past few years, I have always found that a First Class service has been delivered by all staff at Bespoke. The staff at Bespoke listen and take a full brief of our recruitment requirements prior to placing staff with us which saves a significant amount of time in getting the best staff possible.
HR Director, Benoy
Bespoke’s Australian offices have provided an invaluable service to BVN Architecture by recommending candidates for both short-term & permanent placements. During an extended skills shortage in the Australian market, Bespoke Careers in London also provided us with an exemplary service.
Design Principal, Bligh Voller Nield, Sydney
We have used Bespoke for years because they always understand what we need, who will fit the bill and somehow manage to come up with great staff time and again. We wouldn’t consider using anyone else and would be very happy to recommend their service to other architectural practices.
Director, Zaha Hadid Architects, London
Bespoke have consistently provided quality candidates to us. They genuinely understand who we need and save us a lot of time in the process because they hit the mark so quickly. The consultants have good intuition and are always a pleasure to deal with.
Hiring Manager, GM Toucari, London
When it comes to hiring new staff, as cliched as it sounds, we need designers that can hit the ground running on our projects. There just isn’t enough time to filter through the “maybes”. We need to see people who are talented, bright, energetic and know their stuff. Bespoke understands that and brings us what we need.
Office Manager, Wimberly Interiors New York
We have used Bespoke for both temporary and permanent recruitment. In both instances they were able to clearly understand our brief and put forward suitable candidates. The whole process was stress free and our temporary recruitment needs were met in a very short and tight timeframe.
HR Manager, Lewisham College, London
Bespoke has been a fantastic aid to my forever changing recruitment needs, helping me to secure candidates and fill positions effectively.
