Forming a permanent partnership to support your temporary and contract needs
We first engaged with Matt and the team at Williams Kent when we urgently needed to hire a compensation Analyst. Within a very short timescale we were presented with a list of highly skilled and well matched candidates, we subsequently appointed one within about 48 hours! Since then we’ve worked with them on several assignments in our international HR team, each time they demonstrate a real understanding of their subject expertise as well as provide an enjoyable partnership to work with by taking the time to build a true relationship & understanding of our business. They’re a real credit to the industry & I’d not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for an expert partner to support their recruitment needs
International recruitment Director
I don’t usually work with exclusive agency remits – all eggs in one basket etc, but I think I am now converted! The benefits I saw were that you knew that we would be dealing only with yourself and as such all effort generated was towards a common goal, this felt much more like a partnership arrangement rather than the ’normal’ agency ‘ relationship’ that I have worked with previously and I much preferred it. Besides which, given your niche expertise in the Reward space, I was confident after meeting with Kevin – and proved right – that you had some excellent candidates that you could present.
What I liked in particular was that Kevin really listened to the brief and as such the candidates who we interviewed were well prepared, had very relevant experience to present and were already enthusiastic about our organisation which, given recruitment is a two way process, helped us to ‘land’ the person that we wanted.
On a more personal note, I really enjoyed working with you. You were very responsive and focused on achieving a great outcome both for you and us. Great result, I can’t recommend you and Williams Kent highly enough!
Dean has just found us the needle in the haystack we needed and in great time too. I found him polite and professional to deal with. He understands the technicalities of his remit very well which always makes my job so much easier. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dean or work with him in the future.
