What our candidates say.

“KPP contacted me through LinkedIn after a recommendation from a mutual contact. The Consultant guided me through the whole interview process and gave me really useful tips on how to prepare for the interviews and what to expect. After each of them, I was provided with feedback from the interviewers and kept up to date throughout the entire process. After I got the job, KPP followed up to check that the relocation had gone well and to see how I was settling in to my new role – without a doubt, KPP made the process much easier.”

“I have had the opportunity to work with many recruiting agencies, but this one, KPP Search, did an incredible job. My Consultant really followed me, and guided me, through the process of joining the company he introduced me to. They gave me all the information necessary to properly prepare for my various interviews and gave me a lot of advice and tips to help me improve my profile – without which I may not have been successful. I would definitely recommend that all applicants and companies work with KPP Search – I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”

“From the introductory phone call, I knew I was in good hands with KPP. I instantly had the feeling I was being treated as a person and not just a statistic.

My appointed liaison really took the time to learn about me and what exactly I was looking for in a new career/company, which he used to find me a suitable match.

They kept me informed at every single step of the process, letting me know when I had interviews, ensuring the timing matched my schedule (giving me options) and following up with me after the interviews. If I had questions, they were always readily available and were very knowledgeable about the hiring process, which put me at ease – they clearly knew their client well. 

I have heard horror stories about recruitment firms, but if they all had the knowledge, experience and friendliness of KPP people would be more inclined to use them.”

What our clients say.

“It is relatively straightforward to identify candidates who are technically well qualified for the positions we are attempting to recruit for. It is substantially more difficult to identify candidates with the right inter-personal skills and who have a strong motivational fit in terms of their career goals. KPP has developed a strong understanding of our needs as an employer and consequently only puts forward those candidates who they consider will be successful. This ultimately results in a significant saving in my time. Their judgment is excellent.”

“KPP was instrumental in the build-up of our Internal Audit function in Germany. KPP demonstrated speed, perseverance, and clear understanding of our Internal Audit profile requirements. They also have a significant talent pool to source from and are experts in the audit, controls, and risk management fields which improves the speed and quality of the recruitments made. KPP was pro-active, professional, and reactive in the search process and interacted well with our Internal Audit and HR hiring managers to identify the right talent. With KPP support, we were able to successfully build-up our Internal Audit team.”

“I am very impressed with the professional quality and personality traits of the KPP team. KPP are strategic thinkers and planners, they have demonstrated strong professional sensitivity and industry knowledge. The service provided is seamless and timely, and the team are informative and helpful. KPP are dedicated and committed; in particular, they go above and beyond to work around the difference in time zone with Asia, North America and UK. KPP search are thorough and follow through well.” 

“We have been working with the team at KPP over the last 5 years. I must say the experience has been no less than phenomenal from our side, they are without a doubt our preferred talent partner. The KPP team is very personable and takes a simple approach to discovering talent. KPP has the ability to understand our needs, find the right match for us and they do it all in a very prompt manner, that is what differentiates KPP from other talent agencies.
