I returned to the UK in February 2016 after living for five years in Switzerland and Matt was put in touch with me by an ex-colleague during my search for a new senior level role.
At this time, Matt was searching for a Reward Director. During our initial conversations, he took the time to ensure that I fully understood the role, the culture of the organization and the hiring manager. He also took the time to get to know me personally and build a rapport to understand what engages and interests me to ensure that I would be a good cultural fit for the organization.
Throughout the selection and recruitment process, Matt was always in contact with me, letting me know how the process was moving, next steps and timelines. He was one of the few Consultants that I was working with who didn’t require constant nudges to keep me informed.
If all of this sounds a bit stuffy, it wasn’t. Matt has an engaging sense of humour and our conversations were characterised by a good deal of laughter. “They” say that searching for and starting a new role are amongst the most stressful things that you can do. Matt took a lot of the stress out of it by keeping me amused.
I would also say that he took the client relationship above and beyond the call of duty. Outside of the day job, I am also a Fitness Instructor and Matt even attended one of my classes!
Thanks to Matt, I was hired into my new role in May and I would have no hesitation in recommending him and Williams Kent to other candidates.
I was going through a redundancy consultation when I received a call from Fiona of which I wasn’t expecting. In fact I was waiting for a call from another company of which I had just had an interview with.
Fiona explained to me that she looking to hire a HR Manager on behalf of a company and would I be interested in reading their job spec and see if this was of interest to me. She sent me the details through straight away and she had me hooked! I rang back and we had a great discussion about the company.
I cannot speak highly enough of Fiona, I felt that she was really interested in me as a person and wanted me to succeed in my next adventure. I was moving from retail to hospitality of which made me a little bit nervous, but Fiona made me feel at ease.
She was there every step of the way, she even gave me advice on which trains and tube lines to get as I was having my interviews in London and I am from the North East of England so was not very familiar of the underground. She did not delay in getting back to me with the next steps, this of which gave me the confidence that I was in good hands.
I would definitely recommend Fiona and Williams Kent to help you find that dream job as they did with me.
Kevin was very instrumental in me securing my current role. I was working on a FTC earlier this year and was approached by Kevin regarding several relevant roles that I might be interested in during my job search phase. What stands out about his approach are simple:
He is very proactive and as a candidate I never had to follow up with him for information or feedback.
He genuinely spent time to understand my expectations from the roles and I saw he tried his best to match them before sending me opportunities to discuss (most recruiters in my experience want to sell what they have as oppose to what a candidate wants).
He was never shy in keeping it real as well, as and when it was required I did get a reality check from him. This showed me he had my best interests in mind.
He assisted me in getting hired into my current role in London. I was hired here as a one year FTC but have now been offered to join permanently. He has contributed to my success because he took the time to understand not just the client requirements but also mine and matched them appropriately.
I am very happy to recommend Kevin and Williams Kent to candidates considering a career move as well as to a company/firm, if they were recruiting or growing a team.
