Bridgewell testimonials

Director Finance & Student Registration, Hogeschool Rotterdam

Before Bridgewell approached me for the position of Director of Finance & Student Registration we hadn’t had any contact yet. Soon after my start I hired Bridgewell to fill the positions of Manager Control Public and Manager Service Center Finance. Both are completely different positions. Thanks to Bridgewell’s pro-active approach we were able to quickly fill these vacancies to our full satisfaction. My Management Team is now back in balance.

Our cooperation is very pleasant and effective, among other because of their informal and direct communication. They are very well prepared and understand the background of our company well. They are genuinly interested in client and candidates in order to bring them together. Bridgewell has succesfully filled several assignments for us.

General Manager, Bosch B.V

Bridgewell successfully assisted me during several recruitment processes. Bridgewell's strength lies in a thorough understanding of the company culture in combination with a strong focus on the candidate profile - always in close cooperation with us as a client. They are result-driven - within the financial borders - and personal: during the entire process I felt that I was dealing with a true partner. Like no other, Bridgewell has the capacity to adapt to the quirks of a multinational.

Finance Director, TomTom

In very short notice Bridgewell found us the Senior Financial Accountant we needed to take our Shared Service Centre solution forward. As always I was impressed by Bridgewell's ability to quickly understand the type of leader we needed for the specific situation, and then reach out to their network and find a particular skill-set against a tight deadline.

My experiences with Bridgewell are very positive. After a time consuming search for the right people by other agencies with no success, I came into contact with Bridgewell. I am very happy with the quality of the candidates introduced and how fast they were found. Bridgewell is a joy to work with they really make things happen. Despite difficult market circumstances they have found an interim as well as a permanent colleague. I will definitely recommend Bridgewell to my colleagues.

Bridgewell is successful in supporting me to find talents for our company. It's a cliché, but I can only be successful when I have talented people around me who can help me realise my goals. Bridgewell understands this. At the start of every assignment together with me they put in a lot off effort to make sure they can work efficiently towards a good result. I really appreciate that they want to understand from the beginning what I am looking for, such as the competences I need in a person and also who fits within the team etc.. During the process they act actively on how to fill the position, therefore also challenging me to have a clear look on the organisation as well (do we respond in time, do we need to adjust the requirements etc.). When all this is done they present me a shortlist of candidates from which I've always have been able to make a good choice.

We have worked with Bridgewell in attracting both interim and permanent candidates on senior level within our finance department. Most impressive is their professionalism, integrity, flexibility and determination to achieve the right results - the right way. I have found them to have excellent networking skills and a superb range of contacts in their specialist finance discipline, coupled with the credibility, confidentiality and sensitivity to handle the most senior of roles.
