“Sam has to be the most professional recruiter I’ve ever come across. He assisted me with finding my most recent role and unlike most recruiters, he consistently maintained contact throughout each week. I feel that the consistent contact showed genuine care and has motivated me to push myself to my limits. I would definitely recommend him to any family or friends who would like to join the co-sec industry.”

“Fiona is tremendously knowledgeable about company secretarial, legal and related areas not only in the UK but in the US and Asia also. She is highly professional, great fun to work with and brings energy and enthusiasm to her assignments. When I was General Counsel and Company Secretary at Reuters Group PLC Fiona found me excellent team members and was a "go to" person for a lot of insight and background knowledge about the sector.”

Rosemary Martin

Vodafone Group PLC


“Sam is the most dedicated and professional recruiter I have had the pleasure of working with. He takes the time to make sure you are not only prepared for an interview but follows up after. Within one week I had an interview, a second interview and an offer. If you are looking for a recruiter that will actually take the time to listen to what you are looking for and care about getting the best offer possible, Sam is your man!”

Chelsea Chivers

“I've dealt with Fiona, Jane and Carla at various times in my career. They are understanding of candidates' and clients' needs, realistic in their assessment of both jobs and people AND they keep in touch. They are without doubt the best in the business.”

“I have worked with Jane in securing my current position with the London Stock Exchange Group. Jane has a sound knowledge of the Company Secretarial market and a great knowledge of her clients’ requirements; this was evidenced by the great support she gave me during the selection process, as she was able to address my (many) questions in a constructive and positive manner, which ultimately gave me the confidence I needed to pass my interviews. Jane is a great head-hunter, whose friendly and competent approach makes her a fantastic partner for both job seekers and prospective employers!”

Alberto Buffa ACIS

London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG)


“I have known Jane for approximately 15 years, recruiting a number of excellent team members through her. Jane has also found me two roles which have been important to me in my career. I would recommend Jane highly, regardless of whether you're recruiting or looking for a role. Jane's real standout skill is that she doesn't just take a job spec and look through her list of candidates, instead she really makes an effort to get to know both company and candidates. This means that sometimes she will come up with slightly unexpected ideas but because she's put in the effort up front it's always worth listening to her advice and being challenged by her. Overall I can't recommend Jane highly enough, she's brilliant.”

Fiona Morrison

“I have known Fiona and her team at Boxall Wallace Wells for many years, both as recruiter and as recruitee. Fiona has shown a keen ability to put the right people in to work with me, and in placing me in three organisations during my career. I have no hesitation in recommending Fiona and the team.”

She has an excellent understanding of the Company Secretarial market and gets to know her clients and candidates to ensure a good fit.

“Sam was extremely friendly and helpful. He bothered to find out what I was looking for in my career both now and in the long term, and got straight to work. He has built a great relationship with employers and sent a number of great opportunities my way. Through Sam, within around two months, I managed to get an ideal role for me. I would highly recommend Sam for any of those looking to use professional recruiters to seek employment.”

Ryan Frater

“I have known Jane at BWW for over 10 years and have always found her to be highly professional, very client focussed and dedicated to finding the right person for our company secretarial vacancies.”

Marina Thomas

Meggitt PLC


“During my job search, early this year Sam (and the rest of the team at BWW) were always my favourite people to receive calls, texts and emails from. I told them what I was looking for and that's what Sam always sent me, without ever bothering me with 'any old role' that came up that wasn't going to be interested in. Sam always respected my decisions for whatever reason not to explore roles he had sent my way and provided all the support I needed when a promising role came across his desk - but not in the typical pushy recruiter way. Overall I couldn't be happier with the support I received from Sam and the team, he was always on hand to answer any questions I had and made sure I was well prepared for my interviews. I'm still astounded that he managed to find a fantastic role in a pandemic!”

Tasmin Arthurton



“I have worked with Sam last year when conducting a search for a new member of my company secretarial team. I have very much enjoyed working with Sam and appreciated his positive attitude, willingness to listen to my feedback following the first round of interviews and changing the initial candidate pool. I have worked with BWW for over 10 years now and would recommend them and Sam to anyone looking for a reputable company secretarial recruitment firm.”

Hana Beard

Tritax Group


“I would highly recommend Jane and the team at BWW to any candidates seeking new opportunities in the Company Secretarial field. Jane has recently provided an outstandingly personal and dedicated service, willing to go the extra mile to support and provide in-depth communication at each stage of the recruitment process. She has extensive knowledge of the Company Secretarial marketplace and with her friendly approach endeavours to achieve the perfect match between company and candidate.”

Michelle Palmer

“I've worked with Jane over the past few years when recruiting graduate trainees looking to start their careers in the Company Secretarial world. Jane has taken time to understand my organisation and find the candidates who not only have the right qualifications but who will also fit into our organisation. It's a big responsibility to help graduates in their first role to build the right work ethic as well as providing them with the best training possible and Jane has worked tirelessly with us to identify the best candidates. For me, it's really important that the successful candidates feel that they will be comfortable working in the organisation that employs them and Jane understands that. I recommend Jane (and her team) without hesitation.”

Sally-Ann Bray

Omnicom Europe Ltd


“I have always found Jane and the BWW team excellent when seeking roles. Jane has supported me through the whole end to end process when seeking a role, initially by selecting appropriate roles for me to consider, and then with regular communication throughout the recruitment process. I would thoroughly recommend Jane and BWW for anyone seeking a role. ”

Jo Stevens

DS Smith


“I have worked with Jane for more than 20 Years both as a Company Secretary recruiting staff for my teams and as an individual seeking new roles. In both capacities, Jane has been the ultimate professional, whether it is discussing the right candidates and their perceived strengths and weaknesses for roles I wish to fill or advising me whether I would be the right or wrong person for a particular role. As a candidate you have confidence that she will be working for you with the client, identifying how you would fulfil a particular position, and as a recruiter, you know that she will not pull her punches if you choose to discard someone from a list who she feels is right for the job. A professional who understands the role of Company Secretary in both its narrowest and widest dimensions and always a pleasure to work with.”

Geoff Mason

“Working with Sam was wonderful. He was professional and helpful and made sure I was completely informed the entire way through the recruitment process!”

Megan Rose Birtwistle LLB

Luxfer Holdings PLC


“Coming straight out of full-time education and finding a job is hard enough, however in the middle of a worldwide pandemic it was made even harder for me. Trainee Co Se roles were hard to come by, however within a few months I have been lucky enough to land one. Sam was incredible and so thorough whilst prepping me for interviews and was always available for any questions I had. My last stage interview actually fell whilst he was on leave, but he was still at hand to help me with last minute nerves about what to expect, therefore its easy to say that Sam went over and above in helping me to land the job I so desperately wanted with a fantastic company that is the perfect fit for me. I could not recommend Sam, and BWW in general, enough. Thanks to their hard work and dedication I am able to start 2021 with some certainty and stability and heading into what I hope will be my life long career. ”

Daisy Caro



“Sam was really helpful with my application for a new role, from talking me through their client's expectations to giving me encouragement. Just what was needed, and I was offered the role! Great thanks!”

I have worked with Jane as a candidate and as an employer and at all times her advice has been invaluable to me. From always having the most interesting opportunities in her book to offering the most considered shortlist of candidates, Jane is one of the best in her industry. I would recommend Jane's work and that of her team without hesitation.”

“I would like to thank you Sam for his dedication and professionalism. I couldn’t recommend him and BWW Recruitment team more; they are absolutely incredible and very helpful. Sam is very professional and yet very friendly and personable. He was always very transparent and helpful keeping me informed throughout the whole process. His assistance was crucial in me successfully securing the role thereafter. Thank you, Sam!”

“Sam has been incredibly helpful to me during the entire process from the first interview till my first day in the new role. It is rarely you come across a person who is as invested in their job. Sam has always made the time to talk and crease out all the worries. I am very grateful for all the help and support that was extended to me by Sam. Having him as a consultant was a big blessing.”
