The Team

Chris Bongard

Recruitment Director

I am the Recruitment Director at KDR Recruitment. As part of the management team I love being able to help others progress in their recruitment careers, as well as having lasting relationships with our clients and candidates.

I’ve been at KDR since 2008, I initially started as an intern during the summer whilst I was at University. The day I graduated Mark phoned me up and asked if I wanted a full-time job. I was a poor student, so obviously I said yes! And after all this time I’m still here.

The best thing about working at KDR? For me it’s the fact we recruit in one of the hottest markets on the planet, which is constantly evolving. Speaking to guys that specialise in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence is truly fascinating!

A bit more about me

🥃 My favourite drink changes by the week, but right now it has to be rum and ginger.

🎥 My favourite film is Leon

🎧 My favourite band… this is a difficult one. Either The Cure, Cold War Kids, Chemical Brothers or The Smiths

🤔I don’t have a nickname that I’m aware of. You might have to ask the team! I’m sure they have plenty for me
