Mike Beament: 1954 – 2017

We’re very sad to announce that Mike Beament, one of the founder members of BLT, passed away yesterday peacefully after a short illness.

Mike and his co-founders established BLT in 1987 as a recruitment company built on a strong ethics, unrivalled knowledge of the niche areas in which we operate and a certain amount of individuality in the way which we do business – values which remain strong to this day. Mike was particularly instrumental in creating a ‘family feel’ to the BLT culture – put simply, it was great fun working with and for him.

All Mike’s colleagues past and present will remember Mike for his tremendous warmth, wit and integrity and we are thinking of his family and friends at this sad time.

The candidate who gets the job is never the closest match to the job spec – it’s always the one who looks a slightly interesting alternative on paper, and then wows and convinces everyone face-to-face.
