Who are we

Based in the British Virgin Islands, Ballast & Capel Jobs is a specialised search and selection consultancy and a division of Ballast & Capel Business Consulting. We operate in niche markets where local knowledge and cultural sensitivity are critical components of our business strategy. We focus on the proactive sourcing and recruitment of high quality candidates by utilising our expansive networks, comprehensive industry knowledge and customised recruitment campaigns.

Ballast & Capel Jobs is a people business. We take time to understand our clients' and candidates' objectives to come up with tangible, effective solutions. Our strength is in introducing people to opportunities unlike some of the mainstream recruitment companies who match CVs to job specifications. The development of strong relationships and a solid understanding of business foundations and human capital strategies are imperative to our success. We believe that this is where our real value lies.

What we do

Ballast & Capel Jobs provides permanent and contract recruitment within a range of industries which encompasses offshore financial services including corporate and trust services,  legal and compliance, sales and marketing, retail, hospitality, telecommunications, industrial and public sector vacancies. 

In addition to end-to-end recruitment solutions, Ballast & Capel also provides a comprehensive range of advisory services. This includes psychometric testing, career coaching and counselling, immigration and labour code requirements, market analysis and compensation benchmarking.

How we do it

Ballast & Capel uses a range of search and selection techniques to deliver quality results. This includes traditional media advertising, our link to local news and job site BVI Platinum, as well as social media platforms and professional networking. We build on the strong relationships we have developed to deliver quickly and efficiently on every assignment we undertake. We strongly believe in doing what we promise, and doing it well. We have over twenty years experience in providing these services both locally and internationally. This legacy has enabled us to develop an extensive overseas network as well as a deep understanding of the available talent pools and applicable labour laws. We believe it is important that our style of business reflects the honest, committed, and passionate way we work with our clients and candidates.
