What people say about us

  • KDR Recruitment has exceeded my expectations having successfully recruited for our Deal Analytics function over the past 18 months.

    I engaged with KDR to assist in expanding our Data & Analytics practice with Deal Advisory which isn’t an easy task as we need to balance deep analytics and deals/consulting backgrounds. Their specialist industry knowledge became apparent in their methodical approach in qualifying the requirements, providing relevant candidates and insight into current market conditions.

    KDR successfully placed 4 high-calibre mid to senior level candidates into my team and the quality of the profiles received from KDR surpassed what we had seen elsewhere. KDR brought a good blend of technical as well as consultative skills.

    KDR has been extremely thorough throughout the recruitment process, taking the time to visit our business and understand key details about the positions and our company culture. KDR not only provided us with high quality candidates quickly, but candidates were also well informed and prepared on what to expect from the position which kept them engaged during our hiring process.

    If you’re hiring for data, technology and analytics professionals and want to partner with someone who genuinely cares about your needs as a hiring manager, I definitely recommend using KDR.

  • I regularly have to recruit for both full time and contract resource in order to keep up with the ever increasing demand on my department. In order to fill these roles as quickly as possible, I rely heavily on external agencies with differing levels of success. KDR is by far the best agency that I deal with and I put this down to the fact they specialise in the data and analytics space. It is not an exaggeration to say that for every good CV I receive from other agencies, I get 10 from KDR. Of these 10, each candidate has already been pre-screened ensuring that I only conduct interviews with truly capable candidates.

    I can also testify to this from a candidate perspective as KDR recruited me into my current position at Lv=.

    It is safe to say that KDR is top of my preferred supplier list and I intend to use them for all of my recruitment needs for the foreseeable future.

  • I’ve worked with quite a few recruiters, and James Hodges is among the very best. In all our interactions across several months, James was diligent, responsive, and sage. At the outset of our working relationship, James asked me a series or probing, thoughtful questions. He used my answers to identify well-matching job opportunities. I especially appreciated James’ work to prepare me before interviews, and to debrief me afterward. His advice helped me gain insight into prospective employers’ mindset. I’m delighted to recommend James Hodges most highly for his recruitment expertise!

    Jonathan Marshall – SVP Data Science & Algorithms

  • Joe is an amazing recruitment professional – extremely proactive and thorough. He reached out to me on LinkedIn and worked very closely with me on a role, encouraging and guiding me through the entire process. His insights and support was invaluable and I highly recommend him to future candidates.

    Neha Kirpalani – Marketing Team Lead

  • Joe reached out to me regarding a job opportunity. Within a few weeks of a real smooth process, I had a new job.

    Joe did so many things right during the entire recruitment process. He wasn’t pushy. He listened carefully during our conversations, and always came back to me swiftly if I’d tasked him with finding out some information.

    Joe never left me without answers, he never disappeared for a few days during critical moments. He kept in touch and walked me through the recruitment process, step-by-step. He demonstrated maturity in his role and if I ever need to, I will definitely use Joe again.

  • Georgia was very professional in the way she handled our client relationship. She showed a good knowledge of client management. Her recruitment skills go beyond just linking a Consultant to a potential client. She even provided detailed information on travel and accommodation. She is genuinely caring as evident in her willingness to check how her client settles down in a new consulting environment. I will recommend her to anyone looking for a professional recruitment Consultant.

    Billy Ogunsola – Senior Cyber Security Consultant, Dyson

  • Joe was a very efficient communicator and very enthusiastic conveying the details of the role and the feedback from the hiring manager. He gave very thorough advice on how to proceed through the interview, which proved to be extremely valuable.

    German Coll – BI Senior Developer

  • Joe recently supported me into a new role in the Data domain. Joe was supportive throughout the process and regularly kept me updated throughout. Even since being placed, Joe has checked in a couple of times to make sure everything has gone as planned. Couldn’t recommend Joe highly enough! Thanks!

    Alex Read – Data Platform Manager, Target Group

  • Many thanks for the way and manner you managed the recruitment process. Your prompt response to my questions and request and regular updates. This puts the warm touch to the process. I would definitely recommend you and your company to anyone considering a new role contract or permanent.

  • Max is one of the best recruiters out there, highly professional, great in networking and communication. He provides detailed feedback throughout the process and supports the candidate on each part of the process. Max is a recruiter with a charisma in communication and focused in delivering the best possible result for the candidates and the customers

    Kostas Levetas – Master Data Manager, British Gas

  • During the course of 2018 KDR Recruitment were selected to help the Group Data Office fill a number of permanent Data Governance vacancies having exhausted our luck with agencies on our preferred supplier list. KDR were engaged due to their data expertise and access to a solid candidate base in the immediate and surrounding areas, key criteria we felt were necessary to attract talent in a challenging market.

    This choice proved to be an excellent one as within days a good selection of candidates were presented to us that had been properly screened (NOT keyword filtered as some agencies do) and briefed on the roles available. In fact, KDR as the first real point of engagement between prospective candidates and NFUM understand the need to create a good first impression and had taken the time to visit our offices, understand our organisation, its culture, our team ambitions and of course the specifics of each role.

    As a result of this approach we were able to fill the vacancies in relatively short order with high quality candidates and found that KDR were quick to respond to process issues and requests to keep the process moving efficiently.

    I would highly recommend using KDR for specialist data recruitment.

    Steve Hands – Head of Data, NFU Mutual

  • It’s not unheard of for us to make a job offer to the first person they send us. This has saved us so much time and hassle, it’s invaluable!

    Matthew Scullion – CEO, Matillion

  • I can’t imagine a point in the future where we’re not working with KDR

    Matthew Scullion – CEO, Matillion

  • KDR is the definition of a specialist agency. The high quality of the candidates they have supplied, in an organised no-nonsense way, has resulted in a number of successful hires to my team.

    Stefan Acklam – Liverpool Victoria

  • I asked KDR to find an interim BI manager on a Friday. By the end of Monday I had received three relevant CVs. We interviewed all three and could have offered the role to any of then. The consultant we hired has been superb; a real asset to us and credit to KDR’s specialist market knowledge. Great work!

    Head of Business Applications, Celgene

  • It’s quite difficult to find good candidates with the required skills in biology and coding that we need for all our bioinformatics positions. We noticed a distinct increase in the quality of candidates coming through Max when compared to the other agencies that focused on either coding or biology but not both together. Not only was this useful for our hiring pipeline, but also gave us confidence that we didn’t have to lower our high standards for the people we were looking to hire.

    John Savage – Lead Bioinformatician, Nuritas

  • Steven Richardson is a fantastic recruiter. He is a hard worker, and continues to follow-up on your behalf. He is tenacious in his efforts, and it is clear he bases his success on making other people successful as well. If you have the chance to work with him, you will get a fantastic business partner

    Internal Recruiter – TV Analytics Company

  • Ste is one of the most thoughtful and diligent recruiters I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He is always working hard to bring us the best technical and team fit candidate profiles. I have the utmost confidence that any candidate working with Ste and his team will be treated with respect, kindness and personally engaged with. This ensures the candidates come away from the process with a positive outlook, no matter the outcome.

    Internal Recruiter, TV Analytics Company

  • James is a great recruiter to work with. He is very friendly, extremely responsive and committed to getting you the candidate you want. We were finding it hard to fill this role that required interdisciplinary skills. James was able to provide many CVs that fit the role and we were able to recruit a great candidate. The main thing was that he kept on searching for better candidates even when we rejected many. He is also very organised and meticulous in addressing concerns of both the employer and the candidate. We will definitely use James for our future recruitment needs and I can definitely recommend him to any one who is looking for that special, hard to find candidates.
