At BIE we believe the key to our clients’ success in the 21st century will be connected to their ability to overcome the challenge of constant disruption and the need to transform.
To support our clients through these peak periods of change we have created one cohesive team that:
We operate a matrix structure that provides our clients with a Partner led key account management team, supported by a pool of experienced consultants with functional expertise in the key areas of:
"My first job out of university selling software was a really tough job, it was made worse by the fact that the company wasn’t equipped to take on graduates and it had such a terrible atmosphere. Since I didn’t have anything to compare it against, I ended up thinking that type of working environment was just a normal part of working full time.
It was only once I started at BIE that I realised how much better a working environment can be. It was very reassuring! The people, atmosphere and culture at BIE make it a great place to work. Everyone is on the same wave-length and are very open to talking and supporting anyone who needs it.
Before starting at BIE, my only experience of recruitment was graduate recruitment, which is completely different. I felt they were just trying to make a quick buck out of me. Whereas, at BIE you can sense there is much more emphasis on developing relationships. I am amazed that some of the team have known their candidates for over 10 years and have placed them multiple times. Placing really good people that are going to do something amazing is such a great buzz!
Working at a boutique firm gives me the opportunity to work closely, observe and learn from people that have loads of experience and are open to teaching me all the best practices for a successful career."
"In 2015 I left BIE to try something new, it was a really exciting opportunity to set something up from scratch. At the time I was actually encouraged to take the new opportunity, I was told that I had to go off and give it a go, otherwise I’d never know how it would turn out and I’d end up with regrets.
But when I got there I realised it’s about who you work with, the people that surround you on a day-to-day basis. A year later it was the people that brought me back to BIE and it was easy to come back because no one held any grudges.
In previous places the top people hide away in their offices, at BIE all the Partners sit on the same floor and are on the same page. Everyone has the same goal. This combined with BIE’s network, reputation and work life balance set it apart from other companies I have worked for.
The opportunity at BIE offers the chance to sit next to and interact with the senior people within the business, so you get on-the-job training. You’ll learn a lot about what you should and shouldn’t do and get loads of little hints and tips to help you succeed."
"What has struck me about BIE over the last few years has been their appetite to genuinely adapt. I would hear lots of good things about how BIE handled their customer base and were developing solutions around market demand, as opposed to taking a one size fits all approach. So hearing about the evolution of their proposition, application of that and the resulting success was really exciting.
Culturally the team ethos and internal collaborative nature to cross sell and be more strategic in the way BIE approach handling key relationships was a draw for me to re-join the team.
BIE really values its staff, and invests in their development. If you have the right attitude to absorb and learn fast, then the opportunity to move up quickly, get involved in cross sector work, take on more responsibility and take on clients of your own, is there."
