we are.


About Us

In a nutshell, we provide the people who design and build tomorrow’s world. Throughout the last 20 years, we’ve established ourselves across the engineering, technical and professional services landscape. We work alongside partners who trust us to deliver tailored recruitment services designed to bring them cost and time efficiencies at scale.

But what guides us is our founding purpose – ‘people can be more’.

We want the best for the candidates we serve and customers we partner with.

And as the representatives of its people, we believe C-Suite and HR teams want the same.

Sharing in this goal enables us to move at pace and forge new ground with the people that matter most to us – our customers, candidates and colleagues.

What we can do for you

One partner described it best when they told us: “You take my recruitment problems and make them go away.”

We’re problem solvers and we spend the time getting to understand you and your unique people challenges.

By doing so, we ensure you’re set-up for hiring success and able to focus on doing what makes your business great.

Change is happening. And this guide covers why RPO is ready-made for the new recruitment reality.

Why RPO?

  • There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to talent
    acquisition. Needs and costs will fluctuate. 
  • Recruitment fire-fighting distracts organisations from
    doing what they do best.
  • There’s great value in an objective third-party reevaluating your recruitment processes.
  • Your Employer Brand is everything in an age where you need to be laser-focussed on attraction and retention. 
  • It’s possible to create cost and time efficiencies while also improving candidate quality.


We care about our customers and the way we make them feel. By using Net Promoter Score® we’re able to measure the quality of every interaction. NPS is a fundamental part of our business, touching every point of our Customer Journey.

We simply ask…

“On a scale of 1-10, how likely are you to recommend BPS World to a friend, colleague or someone else?” 

The results speak for themselves…

Our Story

We’ve been going 20 years strong and to continue growing at the pace we have, it’s safe to say we’ve had our fair share of experiences.

The success of a business can often be distilled down to a handful of moments. These moments become the catalyst for great change and cement the very foundations of who you are and why you do what you do.

These are some of the moments that shaped our lives.

  • The organisation begins life as retained Search partner, HintonLea Associates. Our first office opens in Eton, UK.

  • Our maiden RPO agreement is signed with Hyder Consulting and more history is made as Business Partnership Services (BPS) is born.

  • RWE Nukem (now Nuvia) come onboard as RPO partners. An office is opened in Liverpool as well as our current global HQ in Maidenhead, UK. BPS acquires HintonLea as our focus switches to tailored recruitment.

  • A year after opening our new Warrington office we sign our biggest RPO deal to-date with European engineering firm, M+W.

  • We rebrand as BPS World and expand our global footprint. We’re now carrying out work in over 33 countries and counting.

  • A first global RPO deal is signed with ambitious Fintech, 4Finance. Global office openings in the USA, Serbia and Singapore follow and we launch our Rising Stars Apprenticeship programme.

  • We pick up a host of Best Recruitment Apprentice, People Development and website awards. The icing on the cake is earning Best Companies 3-Star accreditation and being named in The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Small Companies to Work For list.

  • BPS Labs is launched – collaborative workshops to identify recruitment problems, explore creative ideas and forge the future. We’re constantly evolving the way we create loyal partnerships.
