Questions and answers

Who is BPS World?

We’re a global recruitment partner, providing HR leaders with a competitive advantage in the ability to attract, recruit and retain the right people. Our unique, problem-solving approach creates cost and time efficiencies at scale.

But more than that, we spark powerful experiences for our clients, candidates and colleagues.

Aren’t you just another agency?

Not at all. We’re only interested in doing ‘good work’ with long-term partners. We’re not here to simply fill roles. We seek to enter trusted relationships where we can add strategic value that directly affects the bottom line.

What’s your process?

We start with a recruitment problem, then put our best minds to work on the areas most likely to impact upon your recruitment lifecycle.

This collaborative approach has won us many friends – and customers – and resulted in us forming deep and meaningful partnerships with those we serve. More on this below.

What services do you provide?

At face value, what we do can appear to be intricate and complex given that our specialisms are so wide-ranging. Which is why we’ve broken down our service offering into these clearly defined areas:

- Labs. BPS Labs are collaborative workshops to identify recruitment problems, explore creative ideas and forge the future. You leave with value, answers and a clear roadmap for future success. We often start each relationship with a Lab, so that we can really get under the skin of your business and offer up-front solutions to pressing challenges.

- Brand. Our in-house creative studio work with you to become an employer of choice. We enhance your recruitment marketing and the candidate journey to ensure you offer a brilliant experience at every interaction.

- Resourcing. Find the people you need, keep projects on track and stay compliant. Over the last 20 years we’ve designed, built and delivered talent and compliance functions across the world. However, no two projects are alike to us. We create long-term strategic partnerships by blending our services around your unique objectives.

- Search. We started life as an Executive Search firm so we understand the language of business leaders. How they think, how they feel and what they want. It’s second nature to us. But that’s only one piece in the puzzle. Sourcing, engaging and hiring executive talent is a service. Going the extra mile to assess the market and imagine the future is a true partnership.
