A Different Approach To Consultancy
A brief insight into BondMoran
'Relationships are more important than a deal'
Nearly every consultancy use the identical ‘unique’ selling points.
So much so, that it often becomes ‘noise’.
YES, we have all worked in our sector for 20+ years in the local area, giving us a particularly strong network. YES we are experts at what we do. OF COURSE we ‘add value’, and YES we build long-term relationships based on mutual trust.
Our expertise is primarily within accountancy recruitment, however we recently started a non-finance division (at the request of our biggest client!).
One difference to the ‘standard’ approach is that we use our extensive knowledge to run complimentary workshops on a range of subjects; eg direct recruitment, retention, pipeline management etc, and these are tailored depending on our clients specific challenges.
Although a ‘quirky’ offering, during lock down Lawrence resurrected an old talent and started doing dozens of free, virtual magic shows for our contacts both old and new. Although this sounds like a light-hearted offering, it resulted in working with individual departments and teams to address specific development challenges.
Importantly for a brand such as yours, we also advise our recruiting clients on how they can maintain a positive ‘brand perception’ with candidates before, during and after their recruitment campaigns.
If you have never asked a consultancy how they will manage this, how they ‘sell’ your brand, and how this can be improved and monitored, we’d love to discuss this.
We have all been long-term customers of Hollywood Bowl, and our business shares your ethos.
For us it is essential that your chosen consultancy share your passion for the brand, and we will use the insight gained to help attract top talent into the business more effectively.
Our business is fueled by referrals which is a lovely way to build a company.
We have a personality, a soul, and a clear culture that very simply makes us…us!
We’re VERY open and we welcome you to talk to our other customers about their experiences. When we were allowed, we often invited clients (new and established), to come into our offices to check out our methods and how we manage their account.
Importantly for Hollywood Bowl, we’ve run SME’s, and we have been job seekers and recruiters, so we understand the various pain points experienced from all sides involved. As an example, we aim to reply to EVERY application and not just rely on the typical agency disclaimer on an advert.
We think about our contacts, what makes them tick, and how we can engage with them better than other business partners. For us, as you now know, it’s all about relationships!
These relationships have to start somewhere, and although Laurence Keen knows my colleague Lawrence and subsequently is aware of us, we’d love to have a more in-depth chat either on a video call or in person.
Our social posts on LinkedIn and our website will give you an insight into our ethos and professional, but relaxed, ‘human’ approach.

Our recruitment team are NOT paid on a commission basis!
As you probably know, this is not usual within recruitment and it creates a level of efficiency and teamwork that is definitely NOT ‘standard’ within the recruitment market.
We operate with a number of hospitality and multi-site retail businesses, however you will hear this from every consultancy you speak with.
We’d encourage you to speak with our contacts within these businesses to discuss our approach, the value we add and, importantly, the care we use when partnering with our clients.
Whilst they are not direct competitors, many of our clients are London based Hotels/Hospitality businesses and I will gladly share the names clients where we have placed a range of Finance Department personnel, from CFO’s and FD’s, through to transactional team members.
We also deal with numerous multi-site businesses in and around Hemel Hempstead and again, we will discuss these in confidence.
In addition, we act as retained consultants for a housing association in London where our role is far more than merely ‘recruitment’.
For this client, we address retention, assist the internal team and, where external support is required, we handle this process.
Flat rate fees
Our introductory rate doesn’t increase with salary levels and whilst most agencies will do this, we have never felt this to be a fair approach. With BondMoran, you will always receive the same, high quality service regardless of the seniority of the role. Whether engaged on a retained, retained-light, or contingent basis, we charge the same flat rate.
We are experts within our sector. Each of our Consultants has over twenty years experience within accountancy recruitment, in our specific geographical area, ensures that we are extremely well networked.
Genuine consultancy (with a long-term, relationship approach!)
Whether discussing how your brand is going to be perceived by potential recruits, confidentiality, staff engagement, headhunting, training workshops and many other subjects connected to recruitment and retention, we operate as an expert partner, not a transactional service provider. Our advice is always free!
Solutions, NOT sales
We offer a range of customised solutions, including retained, contingent and alternative offerings such as 'retained-light'.
We offer a FREE replacement service for all permanent recruitment. Just ask for full Terms.
