Client Testimonials

Here are a few words our clients have to say about us and the Lucy Bristow service:


“Thank you for your enthusiasm for the role from the off. You were far more positive than other agencies which we found very reassuring.”


“I have worked with Lucy Bristow for many years as a temporary member of staff working for a number of their clients and more recently when I have recruited permanent and temporary members of staff here.  Lucy Bristow is excellent at understanding my requirements and providing the relevant candidates as well as providing a professional and high quality level of service.  I consider Lucy Bristow to be one of the top recruitment agencies in Bristol. ”



“Lucy Bristow successfully place me in my two most recent roles; so when I was looking to fill a Park Assistant to cover maternity leave I naturally looked to them for assistance in filling the vacancy.

The role we were recruiting for were crucial for our business & required a specific set of skills and experience and it was vital we recruited the right person first time round.  Lucy Bristow identified an excellent selection of suitable candidates to interview in a professional and responsive manner and were accommodating and understanding of our recruitment timescales.  The interviews went ahead smoothly and our new recruit has fitted in well within the business.  I would not hesitate to recommend Lucy Bristow,  they will deliver results, offering real value for your money.”

HR Director – Legal Company



“I have worked with Lucy Bristow for approximately 12 years.  During this time I have worked with various consultants all of whom have taken the time to understand our business, the teams’ personalities and dynamics and the type of people we like to employ. The service we receive is prompt, efficient and friendly.  Four of the five secretaries currently working for us in Bristol came through Lucy Bristow, three of these have been with us for over five years.

For any vacancy we have Lucy Bristow never fail to put forward a number of suitable candidates and the only thing we are left to do is find the suitable personality match which makes our job so much easier.

I would never use any other recruitment agent in Bristol”

HR Officer – Legal Company



“Lucy Bristow have time and time again proved themselves to be a stable competitor in the ever growing recruitment agency market, in the down-turn they were still able to manage to provide us with excellent calibre candidates at a competitive and cost efficient price.

They are one of the leading agencies in Bristol and have proved this from the calibre of candidates they are able to provide at a fast pace.  Lucy Bristow are able to inform us of any changes with the market place and are always willing to go above and beyond and they provide a full all-round service to us from recruitment needs to salary surveys and sector knowledge.”



“We have just seen Kate – how right you were – she is just what we are looking for! She had a very good interview and we have said we will be asking her back for a second interview. My thanks for sending us such a perfect candidate.”

HR Manager – Financial Services Company


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff at the Aztec West branch for the excellent service we have received from you all over the past 6 months or so. I have found the professionalism and courteousness of your staff to be of the highest standard with a ‘nothing is too much trouble’ approach to our requests for sourcing both permanent and temporary staff. The calibre of the individuals your agency has put forward for our consideration has been 1st class and we are absolutely delighted with the final selection of our permanent receptionist. I believe your own staff, particularly Lisa, discerned our requirements with great accuracy and matched our needs perfectly. We have also had a requirement for a temporary assignment and this also has been filled, at short notice, with a 1st class administrator.

I look forward to continuing our working partnership in the future and ask that our thanks be passed on to your team members.
