Tipi Bhogal
General Counsel and Senior Risk Officer
Senior Manager
Sanctions and Trade Controls


Working with Adam has been a pleasure. He took the time to know me and understand what I wanted from a role. This was so important to me, as this was about the next steps of my career and aspirations. Adam kept me thoroughly updated with progress and guided me through the process. I never had to chase him – he was always one step ahead. Adam stands out from other recruiters and placed me with a wonderful business and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you Adam!

I have repeatedly connected with Legal & Compliance the team at Platform 1, both as a candidate and a recruiter over many years because I trust in their people. Their unique proposition is their deep knowledge and expertise in Audit, Compliance and Risk. They really listen to requirements and make genuine efforts to fit the brief. As a candidate, I knew I would only be sent roles that matched my skillset and criteria and as a hirer, this meant them taking the time and effort to truly understand a niche Compliance area that was notoriously difficult to resource. Everyone I have dealt with has worked hard to provide candidates that satisfied my company’s needs ultimately enabling us to fill our challenging vacancy. 

With their professional but dedicated personal service they ensure recruiting engagements are efficiently handled without the need to repeatedly re-brief or reiterate requirements. Even with the current trend for in-house and LinkedIn-led hiring, they prove the worth of specialist external agency recruitment support.
