This is what our clients say about us…

We have used BPA to successfully recruit permanent & temporary international tax staff in Netherlands and Singapore and indirect and customs experts in Netherlands. Their knowledge of the candidate market across all of EMEA and APAC and their ability to match candidates with our profile needs has made working with BPA very successful. Being able to access prospective tax staff from across EMEA and APAC to fill our tax staff needs has resulted in a tax function with a much broader range of skills and experience than if we had just recruited from the local market which has provided additional benefits to the wider company.

Julian Oldaker, Senior Director (Head of International Tax and Transfer Pricing), Medtronic

“Building my global tax team from scratch, needed only one provider: BPA. With short communication lines and dedicated people who take the time to understand what profile fits with the company and my team culture.

Barrie and Will managed to find me the right candidates for roles that are uncommon in the market, in Latin America, Asia and Europe, selecting for direct and indirect tax consultant and tax manager roles, as well as senior tax leaders in each region. The shortlists were excellent, each candidate an immediate and solid fit as they understood what people I want on my team. The one time a person withdrew from the contract, they immediately had a list of possible replacements ready at no extra charge”.

Afke van Mansum, Director Global Tax Operations, Bacardi

“Our tax team has expanded rapidly in recent years and BPA has helped us to recruit some key individuals. I have been very impressed by their knowledge of the tax marketplace and their ability to hunt out high quality candidates.  I appreciate the straightforward and transparent way in which they work, and the fact that they take the time to understand our culture.”

Lesley Thomas, Head of UK Tax, Liberty Global plc

“Barrie was integral to our ability to build a team outside the United States. As a Fortune 500 US company doing business in over 100 countries, we needed an advisor who could help us rebuild a team not only in western Europe, but in other parts of the world as well. He is the consummate professional, and I consider him integral to any staffing discussions. The candidates he brought were on target, and created a very streamlined process. Barrie “boxes way above his weight” and I have complete trust in him. I would actually not consider using anyone else.”
