Client Testimonials

“BTS have consistently been able to source high-quality relevant candidates over the last 12 months- its been a challenging year and it's been vital to get good quality people in, they have fitted our briefs , hit the ground quickly and had a real and prompt positive impact within and across the organisation- I would happily use again and recommend BTS” – Director of Finance & Resources

“I’d be happy to recommend Tracy, having worked with her as a client and candidate for many years. She has that natural personal touch that you can’t teach, which means that she quickly gains the respect and trust of clients and candidates alike. For my last vacancy, which had a good response, Tracy picked out the successful candidate early in the process, which shows she had a great understanding of what we needed in terms of skill set and personality fit.” – Group Treasury Manager

“I would be more than happy to provide a testimonial as I have been very impressed with the service I received from Bayman, Topping and Smythe. I have worked with Tracy to recruit two people into my tax team this year. Tracy took a lot of time to understand what we were looking for and gave me a very helpful overview of the type of candidates we were likely to be able to recruit. She gave us a list of three candidates for the positions we had, and we were impressed with all three. Every one of them met our requirements and was qualified for the role. The difference for me was that Tracy focussed on getting us candidates who she knew would be able to do the job for us, and didn’t waste our time by sending in CVs on spec. We will definitely work with you again if we need to recruit in future” – Head of Taxation

“Bayman Topping & Smythe offer a dedicated and professional recruitment service, they take time to understand your business needs and strive to source the best candidates for your role. They are very knowledgeable on the finance industry and have a proven track record of finding talented, experienced and engaged individuals. Overall, they go above and beyond to assist employers with their recruitment strategy and always understand what it is you are looking for in a candidate” – Resourcing Manager

“I’ve worked with Tracy for a number of years (more than I wish to confess to!), and also been a manager of staff for a considerable time too. I have always recruited people based on personality and “team fit”, this is a successful formula that leads to a successful team in my opinion. It’s very difficult to find recruitment agencies that understand and take seriously the fact that “fit” is sometimes much more important than qualifications or countless bullet points on a CV. It makes the life of the recruiter much more difficult and takes time and energy, something that not everyone is prepared to give. Tracy understands and provides this every single time, and I know is respected immensely in the social housing sector as someone who can be trusted. This is what makes Bayman Topping and Smythe stand out from the rest.” – Group Treasury Property Manager

“It was very good. I felt like you really understood the organisation and what we needed in the candidates. We have got an excellent Director of Finance, and other posts from working with you, as you understand us and what need.” – Managing Director

“We are a Northern based Manufacturing SME and we have worked with Sarah for about 8 years now. She just ‘gets us’, is incredibly genuine, and thorough and understands that nowadays businesses are looking for people that fit their culture as well as just the specific role. Sarah is persuasive when she needs to be, if she feels she has met the right candidate for us, even if they don’t read especially impressive on paper, and we have learned to trust her judgement. I’m not saying that the first person she puts forward is always successful, but she is proactive and listens rather than being pushy or salesy like others we have encountered in this industry.” – Operations Director
