BWD is a specialist recruitment consultancy, dedicated solely to the Financial Services industry. Formed in 2006 by founding directors Alistair Brownlee, James Walker and Gareth Davies, BWD has continued to grow in stature without deviating from its original principles and ethos.

The three founding directors are still at the helm demonstrating the same desire and drive they possessed at the outset. The group has expanded from the core beginnings of Wealth Management & Sales & Distribution, now consisting of five dedicated divisions:

  • Wealth Management
  • Sales & Distribution
  • Regulatory, Risk & Compliance
  • Pension & Benefits
  • Specialist Finance & Lending


Embedded into the organisation are our values. These four values define BWD. They are relevant to clients, candidates and employees and differentiates BWD from the norm/standard.

Do the right thing – The right people, for the right opportunity. Partnering with an ethically sound and responsible business.

Humility – Modest, trustworthy & reliable. We listen and respond, sensitive to our clients and candidates.

Loyalty – Always there to guide you. Long-term relationships provide profound satisfaction.

Growth is good – Expanding your potential. Always helping our clients, our business and employees go further.
