Client Testimonials

“Jackie has proven to be one of the best recruiters I have worked with over the years. Not only did she take the time to fully understand the calibre and skill-sets of the people we were looking to recruit, but she worked tirelessly to proactively target candidates who had not even seen the roles advertised. The fact that she then spent a considerable period of time ensuring the fit was right  before even forwarding the cv’s for consideration resulted in all posts being filled successfully within a short period of time. I will certainly work with Jackie on future recruitment needs and do not hesitate to recommend her to anyone”

I cannot thank Aimee enough for all of her efforts in helping me secure my current job role! She has been amazing every step of the way from the initial interview process right to the very end! I would 100% recommend her to anyone who is actively seeking a new opportunity!

 

Rupi – Candidate

After I lost my job with my previous employer I wasn’t sure where to start and was completely lost, so I uploaded my CV to every site available, then soon enough I got a call from Aimee. At first I was hesitant thinking what bogus position is she going to put to me! But she had actually taken the time and consideration to read my CV and found a job that matched exactly what I was looking for. Aimee helped me from then on every step towards getting a job, she was supportive, gave me mock interviews, advise where needed and helped boost my confidence! All this from a stranger who probably felt she was just doing her job, but did so much more and I cannot thank her enough! All I can say is Aimee is a kind and compassionate person who helped me get  the brilliant position I’m in today and I wish her the very best of luck for the future.

As I will be leaving today to start my new role next week, I wanted to personally thank you for your help over the past few months. You have been helpful and I have found you and your company to have made my temporary position hassle free and you have always provided me with all the information/assistance when needed.

Again, thank you Jackie and I wish you well for the future!

Nick – Candidate

I have recently been successful in securing a role at a prestigious law firm through Kate & Co.

My primary contact was Joanne Treagus who I have to say was great to work with. She was professional yet personable and had a real friendly approach to her working style, which I found suited my needs. I have had some experience with other recruitment agencies where they were just doing their job in ‘selling me a role’ and did not have that approachable manner, as it felt like they were just trying to help themselves and not me (the client). Joanne always knew the right things to say, calmed me down when I was nervous and provided some really helpful tips/guidance when it came to interviews. She is an asset to the company and I would definitely be recommending Kate & Co to other colleagues/friends because of the excellent experience I had.

Thank you again for all your help Joanne – you have been a star!

Honestly the best recruitment I’ve ever come across, after a whole year of struggling to find a job, you guys were the only ones who have been amazing and given the best support! Can’t explain how grateful I am.  

Thank you so much again, Love you all lots.

 

 

Natasha – Candidate

I just wanted to say that after being made redundant I signed up with multiple agencies ‘as and when’ I saw roles that were of interest. This approach just did not work, I would get what seemed like none stop calls from various recruiters all day, everyday asking the same questions & ‘bigging’ up jobs which were just not for me.

Once I had a conversation with Jackie M @ Kate + Co – I felt like she was really keeping my best interests at heart. 

Not only did she keep me updated, she reassured me, boosted my confidence & gave me some great insight into the people I would be interviewed by. 

Once I had Jackie as my recruitment consultant – I ignored all other agencies & put all my faith in Jackie without a second thought. 

 This paid off as I landed the role that I wanted & actually ended up with other companies trying to snap me up before i agreed to my current role. 

All I can say is Jackie @ Kate+Co made my job hunting experience a pleasure & I am grateful for all the support she & the team provided. 

 

 

Ash – Candidate

I had just faced my eighth redundancy and had been out of work for some time. My confidence was broken, and my past career choices didn’t make me the most ideal candidate. I ticked all the boxes of what an employer might look for, but I was unable to secure permanent work.

I approached Kate+Co. after many other employment agencies were unable to deliver for me. I explained my concerns to my case worker, and I literally couldn’t have asked for more support.

They secured me some temporary employment very quickly, which I enjoyed, and an opportunity for a permanent position was not far behind.

I didn’t think I’d have a chance at getting the position, but I was persuaded otherwise. I got the job. The difference it has made to me and my family is immeasurable and I honestly can’t thank them enough.

They didn’t quite know what they were taking on when I approached them, but they did everything they could. They were always on the end of the phone if I needed support for an interview or an application, and they were only ever interested in my success.

This is what an employment agency is all about. I would recommend them to anyone. I was desperately in need at the time, and they delivered for me.

 

Jack – Candidate

“I am a qualified legal secretary and have been signed to pretty much every recruitment agency in Birmingham for the past 10 years. I have never been a fan of them because they have always been all singing all dancing and have delivered nothing.

Kate and Co are the exception to that rule. They are amazing and their service is exceptional. Within less  than a week of registering I was put forward for an interview and my advisor Kirsty has been in constant contact with me all the way. She gave me all the necessary pre-interview information, she called me to wish me luck beforehand and she even gave me some last minute interview tips. She called me after the interview to see how I did and came back to me straightaway with feedback. I was offered the job and Kirsty remained in constant contact she would text and email me to see how I was getting on, she offered help in writing my notice and advised me on how to go about it.

Even after accepting the job and starting, Kirsty remained in contact wishing me luck on my first day, asking how it went and just generally being there for me. I felt like not only is she an advisor it was like talking to a friend. The service they gave was amazing in less than 2 weeks of signing up I was offered a job and given support in leaving my old one. Kirsty, Stef and the team at Kate and Co do a great job and I would recommend them time and time again. It’s taken me 10 years to get into my field of work and they made this happen literally overnight. I would recommend them always!!!!”
