BW provided us with an exceptional embedded talent manager, who co-ordinated a resourcing team to secure 25 new employees across our data, software, infrastructure and project teams last year. This solution allowed us to have an internal-like team whilst we were in our growth phase, creating a strong outward message to prospective employees. The process was very easy, cost effective and flexible, and so far all of the employees have been excellent. We will continue to use BW as an external provider, but would 100% use their in-house talent model again if we were to adopt a similarly aggressive hiring plan in the future.
