Key Recruitment Limited – A Leading Recruitment Consultancy based in the South

As an employment and recruitment consultancy we are committed to providing a quality, professional recruitment service to both jobseekers and employers.

We always aim to build long term relationships with our employers across a wide range of industry sectors and have been supplying permanent, short term and temporary staff to some of our clients since we launched Key Recruitment Limited in 2000.

Candidates that we put forward for roles are always well suited for the role and well prepared for the interview process. If we didn’t supply the right people we wouldn’t get employers coming back to us time and time again.

“I have worked with Key Recruitment on several major assignments, and I can say without doubt this is the best level of recruiting service I have experienced in my 25 years of hiring. The team at Key have been superb."

"What I really value is their ability to truly listen to the assignment needs, and the time they took to understand our business operation, as well as the needs of the position to be filled. They clearly spend a lot of time screening the candidates, and investigating the candidate in detail, which they regularly feedback."

"In the days of web based recruitment, it is incredibly refreshing to work with people who understand people, which after all is a key facet of the recruitment process.
I have recommended Key Recruitment to other executives, and continue to use their outstanding services without hesitation”

They demonstrated the highest level of insight, experience and thoroughness which ensured all aspects of the process were discussed, and her support in my preparation left no stone unturned."

"The perceptive manner and understanding of all facets of the process not only boosted my confidence but maximised my opportunity leading me to gain employment."

"Key Recruitment have made it their business to know our business, subsequently the candidates proposed to me have a good idea of what to expect and also what they’ll be required to give if they join us. The service is always prompt, professional, confidential and I value the opinion and honesty on the candidates submitted."
