Here’s what some of key clients have to say about us:

“I regard BLT as a business partner, as opposed to a supplier – they are straight and honest with us about the candidates that they present and also about their observations on our business. These attributes, added to the fact that they’re good fun to work with, means that the business relationship I have with BLT is one that I value greatly.’’

Dan Barlow, Indirect Tax Partner, Deloitte

“BLT has proven to be a valuable partner in our search of talent over many years.  They understand our requirements at all staff levels and provide a pool of excellent candidates. Most importantly, their counsel is fast yet candid and proven to be accurate – and is therefore much appreciated.’’

Nick Burgin, Global Head of Indirect Taxes, BP

“I have known BLT both as an employer and a candidate since 1989.  The unique aspect to BLT’s work is that they know their market better than anyone else.  Therefore, when recruiting, you know you will only get candidates that are suitable for both the role you are filling and your organisation.  BLT were involved in placing me in both roles I have held since leaving HMRC 23 years ago and both experiences were tailored to my requirements as a candidate.  In summary, if you are involved in either side of Indirect Tax recruitment, it is only with BLT at the centre of your recruitment needs, that you can be certain of getting the best result.”

Fiona Heron, Volkswagen Financial Services (UK) Limited


Management Consultancy

“The BLT team understands our marketplace and our business well. They have taken the time to understand what makes us different, and work hard to find consultants that have the potential we are looking for. We aren’t a cookie-cutter business, and BLT understands that our culture is an output, not an input. The consultants at BLT are courteous and professional and I certainly feel like a valued client.”

Alex Marshall, Director,  CIL UK


“BLT have proved an insightful, efficient and effective recruitment partner over the last 10 years. They took time to get to know us and so provide us with candidates who fit our culture really well. “

Alan Holroyd, i2a Consulting

“The BLT team has taken the time to really understand that type of person that will thrive at Ricardo Strategic Consulting.

Suitably prepared, they have been responsive, efficient, courteous, unfailingly cheerful and flexible in identifying the right people to help us support our clients and grow our business. A great team, highly recommended.’’

Ian Kershaw, Ricardo Strategic Consulting

“BLT has during the years been of extreme help to our business. From the beginning in 2002, we have had a very good relationship with BLT as they understand our business very well and are very efficient in helping us with our recruitment needs.
Thus, we have benefitted greatly from BLT’s very active position and excellent network among both relatively new and more experienced consultants. Particularly during the last 3 months where we have scaled up our recruitment efforts, BLT has been second to none in helping us filling several positions with top class candidates.”

Claus Werner, Director, Ocean Strategy

“I suspect AMR was not an easy client for BLT. We have quite particular needs, and might have come across as a bit difficult to please. Kate worked hard to tease out exactly what it was we needed, and the candidates she then put forward were spot on. We hired a number of people as a result and they are thriving.”

Anke Mueller, AMR International
