Q: I am content in my current position, why would a relationship with Bristol be beneficial to me?

Q: I know someone who may be a good candidate for your jobs, can I get credit for referring them to you?

A: With the Bristol Affiliate Program, you will receive a cash bonus for any candidate(s), first referred to us by you that we are successfully paid a fee for placing. Even if you request that we contact this person anonymously, without ever mentioning your name, you are still eligible for the bonus.


Q: How do I know if I am right for the roles you work on? How do you know what roles are right for me?

A: A Bristol associate will take the time to speak with you in depth about your skills and background, as well as the types of roles that would be ideal for you, and keep you updated accordingly.


Q: I may be interested in hearing about worthwhile opportunities, but I don’t want anyone to know I am looking. How can I be sure no one will find out?

A: Discretion is of the utmost importance to us at Bristol. We minimize candidate exposure by developing direct relationships with the hiring managers at each of the firms we represent. Furthermore we will never, under any circumstance, share your information with a client without your specific consent.
