Your boutique recruitment agency.

Specialists in recruiting within the SaaS, EdTech and the Education industry.

bdl recruits was founded to solve a glaring problem in the Education, EdTech and SaaS recruitment markets.

We noticed that most businesses were completely lost when it came to looking for high-level talent. Business owners didn’t have enough time or resources to complete the hiring on their own but these professionals didn’t know where to turn for outsourcing the work. That’s where bdl recruits comes into play.

Our team has decades of combined experience in our markets; EdTech, SaaS and Education. We know what it takes to find the right talent for your business no matter its size or industry. Instead of working for our clients, we work alongside them. Our team takes the time to understand your business in-depth to know what struggles it’s facing and what goals it has in the long term.

Say goodbye to so-called recruitment “specialists” that do nothing more than sending you CVs. At bdl recruits, we get embedded into a business to understand its culture, atmosphere, and other intangibles that are difficult to describe. With this deeper level of understanding, we’re able to find the best professional matches for your business.

Our core values underpin everything we do


Too many recruitment services provide businesses with average recruits that are on hand instead of doing their due diligence to provide actual talent that matches your business’s culture. At bdl recruits, we offer individualised recruitment strategies to ensure the employees we find are optimised to match your business’s needs.


Our team is composed of some of the most talented, qualified, and experienced recruitment specialists in the industry. We thoroughly vet all of our hand-picked team members to ensure our services remain professional and effective. With decades of combined experience, we know what it takes to find the best-matched talent for your company.


We understand just how sensitive the hiring process is for businesses. Business owners are often hesitant to outsource this part of their operations, fearing that the results won’t mesh with their current operations. bdl recruits remains transparent throughout the whole process and leaves you with final say so you feel in control and engaged.

What our customers say

We know how much value we can add to your business, but here are some employer and candidate testimonials too.

Pete Buller, CEO, Althaus Digital

Nathan and the team at BDL have been a great asset to us as we’ve launched and grown our training business. We’ve used their services to hire Skills Coach’s / Trainers as well and sales staff and always had a great experience. Their down to earth, straightforward approach is exactly what we like and they always manage to source us good quality candidates within the required timeframes.

Scott Forbes, COO, Skills and Education Group

There’s no team like BDL. They’re consistently great, friendly, approachable, and easy to work with. They’re quick to get the brief and are excellent at finding high-quality candidates. They are passionate about what they do, and they work hard at understanding an organisations culture and values. It’s not about placing an individual for the sake of it. It’s all about finding the right fit, and that’s what BDL do best. They help make recruitment easy, in what can be a stressful process. It’s great to work with them!

Natalie Stevenson, candidate

Tara was super friendly and welcoming throughout the whole process - I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a new venture. She kept me in the loop and continually checked in with me until I started my new position.

Rachel Fripp (Assoc CIPD)

Josh is professional, helpful and very capable in his role as Recruitment Consultant. I've known him for nearly 2 years now and he has always provided an excellent level of customer service, together with a reliable level of service and recruitment support for the College. He is friendly, human and dependable, offering an honest and extremely responsive service at all times. Most importantly, he is trustworthy. A behaviour that is not always prevalent in the recruitment industry. He will tell me if he thinks he's going to struggle filling a role, supporting his customer's needs above all else. I would have no hesitation recommending Josh, he's a pleasure to work with and a rare find.
