we are.


During the last 20 years, we’ve grown exponentially, in more ways than you’d imagine. We’ve been the catalyst for hundreds of thousands of unique and life-changing recruitment experiences across the globe.

Something we’re extremely proud of.

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

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

And as the representative of its people, we believe your HR team wants 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 clients, candidates and colleagues.

Change is happening. Why RPO is ready-made for the new recruitment reality.

The year 2020 will forever be remembered as a period where we witnessed fundamental changes to the way we live and work. 

But how do we adapt to this shift? And why is RPO more relevant than ever?

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.
