Hyundai“The microsite received excellent feedback and some candidates said they had simply applied to Hyundai because of the look of the site, which they found different and refreshing. We successfully recruited four interns – thanks to you!”

“I have worked closely with Bates JPW since they were introduced to the College in 2010. During that time they have produced exceptional pieces of copy writing, provided expert advice and guidance on the placement of adverts, used their skills to negotiate reduced advertising costs or more frequently to extend deadlines and offered nothing less than a professional, efficient and friendly service. There is always someone at the end of the phone or available to answer an email, I couldn’t want for better customer service.”

Financial Times“I have worked with David and Andrew for many years now and have always been very impressed with their honesty and integrity when dealing with both suppliers and clients. They view all of their business relationships as partnerships and truly collaborate with all businesses to ensure successful outcomes on both sides. As an agency they are dedicated to providing clients with effective solutions and their excellent media relations give them a cutting edge when working to achieve their clients’ goals.”
Steve Playford
Global Director at Financial Times

AEM International“For the last 15 years, David and Andrew Bates have placed advertisements in print and online, in the UK and overseas, for all my recruitment needs, both when working for large global firms and, more recently, running my own company.  As a niche search firm specialising in leadership appointments for the subsidised arts sector, AEM International is a small, but regular client of Bates JPW and one with very limited budgets to spend on advertising.  Despite this, I have always felt I am equally important to them as any of their large clients, receiving the time, care and attention to making sure that even the smallest advertisement is honed until it is exactly as I and my clients want it to look.  No job is ever too small for them to value and take time to service. I cannot recommend them more highly.”

“I always find Bates JPW to be quick, efficient, and knowledgeable about the market. They have been supporting  Macmillan for over 25 years.

No request is too big or too small and it is a business relationship that continues to go from strength to strength.”

Ninestiles School“Their advice around wording adverts has been invaluable and turned our dry, wordy attempts into jobs that sound inviting and exciting for candidates. We have recently placed a number of adverts and have had an excellent response across the board which I believe is in no small measure due to Bates JPW’s involvement. We have worked with Jane Read and Andrew Bates who have both been highly professional, very friendly and efficient and very ready to respond to our many requests for changes. I would highly recommend them.”

Director of Business Operations

CfA“We at CfA have a long and successful relationship with Bates JPW.  The advice and support the team have provided CfA has been invaluable, enabling us to place our advertisements in the right place, to the right audience, at the best price!”

artsconnect“Arts Connect worked with Bates to recruit into five key posts. They organised all of our media space, advised on copy and the right outlets, negotiated discounts and secured us additional value from the media in terms of placing and campaigns. As a result we attracted strong fields for the jobs and were able to appoint high quality candidates into our posts. They dealt with my many requests and changes with great efficiency and positivity and nothing was too much trouble to get things right. I am really happy to recommend their services.”

“The campaign and website for the recruitment of perioperative nurses was hugely successful.  We have completely redefined how NHS recruitment can work and proved it can be an easy and enjoyable experience for our candidates.  BatesJPW and their digital partner Walden O’Neill made the whole process enjoyable with minimal effort and all aspects of the project just worked.  From generating interest, creating a website that facilitated quick and easy applications, live tracking and optimisation of the campaign through to analytics and learnings that we can use next time.  We are definitely planning to build on this success and the agency partnership for new campaigns in the near future.”
