‘I cannot thank KAG enough for their help. The service I received was incredible. Having never had an interview before, Kate and Andrea prepared me in a way that allowed me to walk in confident and prepared. Kate was never more than a phone call away and the constant contact between myself and KAG demonstrated how hard they work and how prepared they are to help you go all the way, which is so encouraging. Anyone looking for professional and dedicated help, look no further.

Thank you so much KAG.’

Testimonials September 2018
From my initial contact with KAG both Kate and George provided an impeccable service taking time out of their busy schedules to provide solid information, advice and guidance to ensure that both myself and my new employer were a good fit for each other. Offering advice on the interview process, invaluable guidance was given on what was expected at interview. Possessing an in-depth knowledge of my new employer they disseminated valuable company information that is not readily available on the company website to myself which I believe helped secure my new role.
These guys provide a unique service to both employers and jobseekers that is different from your average run of the mill recruitment organisations. Employers and jobseekers alike would be doing themselves a massive disservice if they were to pass these guys by. I can not recommend KAG highly enough the service they provide  is second to none

“Kate has been amazing help during my time applying for jobs. She gave me plenty of help and advice when it came to going for the interviews and speaking with my new employer.
She went above and beyond her role as a recruitment agent spending time with me on the phone and answering any question I had. There was nothing too small for her, If there was anything I wanted to know and she didn’t know the answer she rang the company and found out and returned the answer to me promptly.
When I thought Kate’s part was over, she still emailed me checking up and asking how my first week went. Kate puts a lot of effort into what she does, she should be very proud of what she’s building towards.”

” I have worked with recruitment agencies in the past and can say KAG recruitment is by far the best. Kate first introduced me to my current role at DPD over the phone and coached me through the interview process. Her knowledge of the role and expertise in recruitment assisted in securing the job at DPD. Kate and the KAG team were always available to contact if I needed assistance and remain supportive as I progress through my new job. “

“My entire experience with KAG was a pleasure from start to finish. I found both Kate and Amee positive, upbeat and helpful through the whole process.  Their insight into the company I had applied for was invaluable and put me at ease on throughout all interview stages.

“Kate and Amee were wonderful throughout my recruitment process!
They provided lots of contact, information and support – which really helped me in securing my new position.
In comparison to other recruiters that I have had experience with in the past, KAG really personalise their service and the process to you as an individual, providing encouragement and giving advise.
Kate also keeps in touch once you have begun your new position, and this really shows that she cares about your process and development”
Testimonials September 2018
“From day 1 Kate has been so helpful and supportive.
When Kate first got in touch I was half-way through my Masters in business management, and felt a bit deflated because I was worried I would not get a job anytime soon.
Kate showed  great depths of professionalism and walked me through the process of applying for a graduate scheme with DPD UK. I’m writing this review from my desk at my new job, and I couldn’t be happier. Not only did I get a job, it happens to be an excellent opportunity for me to progress my career. I don’t think I would be where I am today without KAG Recruitment.
I cannot recommend enough KAG Recruitment, you won’t regret it.”

“5 stars isn’t enough to rate this company. KAG recruitment gave me the opportunity to take my knowledge and skills that I gained over the years at university to help me land a graduate job at DPD. Before finding KAG I was on the brink of giving up on the graduate job search and return to my default job.

I am honestly grateful and humbled because not many get this opportunity. Thanks to the combined effort of Katie and Amee, who helped me regain my confidence in the job market and mentored me when I had any enquiries. I was able to get a graduate job with DPD 2 months before my graduation. I couldn’t be happier with the support provided by KAG and it’s team , and would highly recommend them to all new graduates.

“I studied a four-year degree in Food and Nutrition at Harper Adams University and as you can tell from my photo, I’m a bit of a “foodie”. I’m from Shropshire so have always been exposed to rural and farm life. I have always been particularly interested in wanting to pursue a career within the red meat industry because of family, especially within butchery.  After graduation, I applied for ABP but was unsuccessful due to lack of experience. I then had a technical role within a different meat processing company and then applied for ABP for the Technical Graduate role through Kate. She was fantastic and personable as well as helping myself to achieve my goal!

Kate has also kept in touch and always been at the end of the phone if needed. I feel she will carry on supporting me throughout my two years of training and hopefully after that as well.  I would highly recommend K.A.G recruitment to anyone wishing to pursue a career or goal within the meat industry.”

“I would like to thank Kate for everything she has done for me. She came across my CV online and contacted me regarding a potential role in the IT industry. At first I was sceptical because I didn’t think I had enough experience for the position but she had the patience to discuss about my doubts, my skills and the company’s background. The advice she gave me really helped me feel more confident. She sent me good luck emails before the interviews and on my first day at work. She is very professional and I felt like I was talking to a friend instead of a recruiter. I am so grateful for the opportunity of meeting her. I definitely recommend KAG Recruitment.”

Clients

I am extremely satisfied with the friendly and efficient service given by KAG recruitment.  Most recruitment agencies are time consuming and blinkered in their approach, churning out CVs without a personal service with slow turnaround times.  But with KAG, I have found the service to be first class, value for money and personalised to match candidates to our job roles.   

The approach is thorough and supportive and really does make a difference to know that you are working with an agency who is keen to place the ‘right’ candidate rather than ‘a’ candidate.  You can have that frank conversation about what you are looking for, and KAG will always offer their expert advice on how and what they think will work and subsequently recruitment campaigns are tailored to find the right candidates.  The process from start to finish makes me feel at ease and I would recommend KAG time and time again. 

I have recruited six employees through KAG in the last 2 months.  I think that says it all. 

Thank you Kate, my right hand woman when it comes to recruitment. 

IT Client

Having reflected on the time I’ve worked with Kate (5 years), I cannot remember any occasion where I haven’t realised value for money.  Kate adds value, more than any other recruiter, initially by taking the time to understand our business in every detail and therefore has an appreciation of which candidates will fit in for the long term.  Kate adds further value by spending time with candidates to help them understand what we are looking for and the culture within our business.  We also place value on communications pitched at the right level and frequency which Kate also delivers very well.  I would not hesitate for one second in recommending KAG Recruitment Consultancy to both customers and candidates alike.

Manufacturing Client

Kate helped us find and recruit some of our best people over the years and one of the many reasons I continue to recommend her to other people. It is such a pleasure working with someone who has great tenacity and passion for what they do, it’s no wonder KAG attracts such great candidates!

Logistics Client

I have worked with Kate on many vacancies since 2011 at both my previous company and my current company. Kate’s main strength when placing candidates is that she understands my exact requirements, my business needs and the culture of the organisation. 

I appreciate Kate’s direct, no nonsense approach and the rapid response that I receive. Kate has supported me on many recruitment campaigns from Senior Manager level through to Administrative roles with the same level of professionalism shown throughout. 

Manufacturing Sector Client

Last year my company introduced Graduates into our network of depots around the UK. As General Manager of Network Recruitment i was introduced to Kate Gerald who I gave the task of finding me candidates. We had 19 Graduate positions to fill by July so a tough ask, Kate came through with 75 candidates all very high quality. We filled all the positions on time, and we have only lost one Graduate in the first year.
