BPS World – Why Work For Us?


We are BPS World – a global recruitment partner

18 years pioneering in the attraction, recruitment and retention of talent, has taught us some stuff. 

We think a little differently.  We recognise that the business world is changing, that you are susceptible to change at a rapid speed and that the old fashioned, 'one-size-fits-all' approach to talent just doesn’t translate very well from one business to the next. 

In a world full of oil tankers, slow to turn and set in their ways, you can view us as the agile and nimble surfer, riding international waves and adapting to what’s thrown at us.

  • We are problem solvers.
  • We are experts.
  • We are thought leaders.
  • We are champions of Good Recruitment.

We won’t crowbar a service or way of doing things, we’ll tailor a solution based on our deep understanding of your business and your strategic plans. No two projects are alike. We see ourselves as a true growth partner and we’re proud of that.

Our five unique areas of focus are:

Consultancy, Brand Performance, RPO, Search and World Solutions.

However, the magic really happens when we blend them and fit them around your business objectives.


We call this Total Talent Management.

We're proud to have played such a huge part in the stories of our employees.

Apprentices, Directors, even Presidents. All of our employees have a unique story to share.

We understand that global growth isn't a product of the individual, but as a collective team. We live and breathe our company values, creating a passionate and committed environment for employees.

Together you'll find us smiling, working hard and playing equally as hard at one of our regular social team events.

It’s this people-first approach that’s resulted in us receiving a number of awards, including:

2018

- Best Companies, 1-Star Accreditation 

2017

- IRP, Best People Development Business Award

IRP, Recruitment Apprentice of the Year

Why do we exist? Because people can be more.

What we do and who we are is shaped by our mission and values. By living and breathing our four key values we never lose sight of what’s important to our clients, candidates and colleagues.

Our values are:

Commitment – Do what you say you’re going to do.

Delivery – There is no substitute for the achievement of results.

Excellence – The pursuit of continuous improvement.

Passion – Inspire and be inspired.

Emotionally, physically and mentally. We provide the platform for our people to flourish.

From the moment you join us, we’ve got you covered. We pair you with a buddy to help you settle in and immediately become a part of BPS World family.

With your buddy, you can have informal chats about pretty much anything, ask for ad-hoc work advice and, most importantly, get local lunch recommendations. And from your manager you can expect a firm commitment to your learning and development.

We truly believe that learning is a lifelong activity and we’ll support you in the form of monthly reviews, ongoing coaching plans and an active Personal Development.

Determined, ambitious and eager to be more? There’s a seat waiting for you.

If you want it, reach out and grab it. We actively encourage career progression and employee mobility through learning programmes, secondments and by offering fresh opportunities as we continue to grow.

By owning your objectives and personal development you’ll be on the right track to learning new skills, gaining qualifications and even promotions through the company.

From Maidenhead to Miami, you’re guaranteed a warm welcome. Our offices are all kitted out with modern equipment and all the tea and coffee you can drink. We know you’re at your best when you’re feeling inspired and productive.

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Maidenhead, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BPS World (Maidenhead, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I met Rich for a coffee initially to gain an understanding of what BPS were looking for. The work life balance was the key selling point from that conversation. I submitted my CV and completed the online assessment. Had a first stage interview with Kelly and Andy which was challenging but very enjoyable. A little bit of delay between my first and second interview but I understood the reasons why. I completed a final stage interview with Simon and accepted the offer the same evening.
