BOLLFILTER needed a recruiter who took the time to get to know their business inside and out. Read more about how our Managing Consultant worked in partnership to recruit the right person for the role.


BOLLFILTER UK, based in Tolleshunt D’arcy, Essex, is a UK supplier of leading filtration solutions and specialist in filtration of liquids and gases. BOLLFILTERS are internationally renowned for their quality and reliability and the company supplies liquid and gas filtration technology worldwide to a variety of industries.


Veronica Brown, Finance Director at BOLLFILTER UK Limited, was looking to recruit a new Finance Controller. The organisation’s most recent experience of working with a recruitment firm had resulted in an unsuccessful appointment. The candidate appointed was not the right fit for the role or the for the company’s culture. This time Veronica wanted to work with an agency which took a different approach.


Having sought advice on potential recruitment firms to work with, Pure was highly recommended to Veronica by business coach Stephen Unwin.

Pure’s Managing Consultant Andy Dowsett, who works with clients and candidates in the Accountancy specialism, arranged to meet with Veronica to find out more about the role and to explain how Pure works in partnership with clients to recruit the right person for the role.

Veronica said:

“Andy didn’t just focus on finding out more about the skills and experience we were looking for in our ideal candidate. He also took the time to find out more about our company’s ethos and culture, so that he could look for someone with the right personality, attitude and values to fit in with us.

“With such a good knowledge of who was available in the accountancy job market, Andy was able to come back to us with a shortlist of suggested candidates. Because he had already spent time getting to know more about each candidate, Andy was also able to share his in-depth knowledge and his thoughts on how they would fit and suit the role. As a result, we have now employed an excellent new member of the Management Team.”


Pure consultants recognise that finding candidates who will fit with an organisation’s culture is just as important as finding people with the right skills, qualifications and experience. Andy was able to save Veronica a great deal of time by getting to know the business inside and out, putting him in the best possible position to source, screen and create a shortlist of only the most appropriate candidates. 

Veronica added:

“Our experience of working with Pure has been a very positive one. The whole process was very manageable and easy. Andy has many years of experience and is thorough in his methods of finding out what exactly is required. His level of professionalism superseded that of other recruitment agents we have used in the past.”
