Data. It’s the fuel that drives the UK’s most successful companies. At KDR Recruitment, we find jobs for the talented people who organise, interpret and analyse data and turn it into competitive advantage.



We pride ourselves on acting with integrity at all times and actively distance ourselves from some of the less professional practices that can be found in the recruitment industry.

KDR Recruitment was born in 2003, supplying candidates to the emerging market generated by the Data Warehouse and Data Management company, Kalido. Since then we’ve grown into Information Management specialists with expertise in Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing recruitment, both permanent and interim.

Our clients range from SMEs to multinational organisations operating in a wide variety of sectors including telecommunications, FMCG, insurance, manufacturing, consultancy, BI product vendors and pharmaceuticals.
