Hiring Manager, GM Toucari, London
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
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
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.
