Wall of love ❤️

Leaders, hiring managers, contractors, and busy professionals in the local government sector are all choosing BSS for their recruitment needs. Here's what they have to say about their experience.

I started my contracting journey with BSS and couldn’t be happier! Having worked in Revenues at local authorities for around 12 years, I thought I was limited to working in my local area. I made initial enquiries and Mark contacted me straight away and then passed me to Ben for the latest openings and I haven’t looked back.

They know their stuff they go the extra mile and I could not recommend them enough . The contracts I have worked on have been exciting and I am gaining so much knowledge and hopefully “making a difference “working with some very talented individuals.

By Lori Stevens

Love working with BSS. Before joining in Nov 2021 I was in a steady but fairly low paid contract, but when I heard that Ben had launched BSS I had no hesitation in signing up with these guys. Finally a recruitment company run by experienced benefits and local govt personnel that recognise your worth! I had every faith they would deliver and wow they really have.

By Bryan Knight

A great company to work for good comms and plenty of support. Ben really cares about his contractors

By Joan Wallace

Business Smart Solutions have been a complete delight to work with in finding my placements. The staff keenly listened to my requirements and ensured that I could be placed in a role that allows me to be flexible in when my hours are worked.

By Samuel Bishop

The two key factors that set BSS apart is, firstly, they know their market and have direct experience working within the sector. So many other recruiters specialise in recruitment but they don't understand revs or bens which causes problems with staff and councils. Secondly they actually look after their staff!

By Carolyn Ortiz

Always happy to help with queries.
Quick to set up calls and discuss/email any concerns. No issues since starting with the agency in June 2022. Super helpful, straightforward and stress-free experience. Comes across as friendly, experienced, and professional. Would recommend. You are treated like a person and not just another number. Still with them a year on.

By Lori Stevens

Taking the leap from almost 20 years in a permanent job to being a 'temp' was scary but I couldn't have wished for a better company to guide me through it.Ben found me a contract almost straight away and I was kept informed of progress at every stage of the process.

By Bryan Knight

I first came to BSS after successfully gaining my IRRV Tech qualification in my previous permanent post. Ben has been nothing but helpful, supportive and looking out for my best interests whilst contracting in Local Government and providing the best service and looking out for new career opportunities which suit my need for progression within Local Government.

By Joan Wallace

Super helpful & friendly, always looking out for my best interests and not just their own. I’ve been with them over a year now and haven’t looked back. Would recommend. BSS family 😊
