Baltimore Consulting win big at the Bristol Life Awards

Bristol-based recruitment company with a difference, Baltimore Consulting, are delighted to have been announced as the 2022 winners of the People Services category at this year’s Bristol Life awards.

The Bristol Life Awards are a business highlight of the city. They are the most prestigious, most tightly contested Awards with the greatest number of local companies involved.

Nearly 250 businesses entered this year’s awards, and the winners were crowned on May 18th in a spectacular in-person black-tie gala evening at Ashton Gate in Bristol.

The People Services category recognises the work of businesses who put people at their core; those that know how to get the very best out of their most important assets.

Baltimore Consulting is a credible business and we live by our core values, even throughout a global pandemic (family, passion, respect, and honesty).

At Baltimore Consulting, our mantra is “empowered to be authentic and achieve great things,” and this is something that shines through our business.

Charmaine Vincent says:

“I’m delighted that Baltimore Consulting have been recognised as winners in the People Services category at this year’s Bristol Life awards. Our people will always be our biggest asset and our culture, values and employee wellbeing initiatives really do reflect this. We celebrate difference and don’t compare ourselves to other businesses. We set our own benchmarks and I truly believe this is a contributing factor to why we’re able to retain our staff and achieve the results we do. It’s a privilege to be recognised in a category that recognises the work of businesses who put people at their core.

We’re different, we care, we give back, we invest, and we are thought leaders around celebrating difference and showing vulnerability. This is what sets us aside. When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we get to write a brave new ending. Despite adversity, we have been true to who we are and changed the lives of so many within the community in the process.”

The business has been on an upward trajectory since founding but have truly come into their own after completing a management buyout in 2018, whereby CEO, Charmaine Vincent, took full ownership of Baltimore Consulting. Since then, the female entrepreneur has won multiple awards and has grown the business to what it is today whilst boasting a 95% staff retention rate.

Our story is truly unique, and we are proud of that. It’s part of our DNA.

Baltimore Consulting are the Senior Appointment and niche recruitment experts to the Public & Third Sector, with a passion for making a difference to people’s lives within the community.

Since inception in 2013, they have continued to fulfil hiring requirements and support vulnerable subject areas such as, Mental Health, SEN & Safeguarding Adults and Children across Local Government, NHS and Education.
