Bespoke has been very helpful in finding my new position at HASSELL. With their insight into the industry, the process of 'getting a new job' has been a pleasant experience. Bespoke has been prompt and efficient, enabling me to take the next step in my career.
I'd like to say thanks again to everyone at Bespoke for their efforts and professionalism - and would highly recommend their services to anyone seeking employment within architecture.
I have worked with Bespoke over a number of years and can't recommend them highly enough. Their thoughtful considered approach is second to none in the architecture industry & because they spend time building relationships with their clients they are a pleasure to work with too. I would not hesitate to suggest them to other practices.

Bespoke Careers have helped us to place a senior designer role in our office and it's been a quick, smooth and very painless process, especially in comparison to our previous experience of posting ads in local papers.
Director, A.I.D Ltd, Hong Kong
Bespoke has a strong connection with some of the most important architectural firms in the world. I recommend their HR services for all Architectural professionals interested in a strategic career move. Personally, I used Bespoke to get my current job overseas and I'm really thankful for their effort and expertise.
Bespoke were key for me during the whole recruitment process, not just because they found me my new job, but the continuous support, communication and encouragement Bespoke has given has been vital with regards to keeping up the energy levels and having the confidence to go for the interviews. I can't thank you enough. You’re fab!
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.

We need to see people who are talented, bright, energetic and know their stuff. Bespoke understands that and brings us what we need.
