James Walker, managing director, BWD (pictured) said: “Expanding our London presence with an additional permanent head office, has been in the planning for some time.

“This provides BWD the platform to grow our London team and continue to support our partners in the capital with the excellent service they deserve.

“These are very exciting times for BWD and looking forward to working on the next phase of our development.”

Alex Searle, sales director, Hampshire Trust Bank said: “BWD are one of our leading recruitment partners, who have provided HTB with some excellent candidates.

“By having a new London presence, it provides the opportunity to discuss our plans and requirements for positions when required, growing our already excellent relationship. We are excited to have BWD here.”
