Kyna Associates

At Kyna Associates, we’re unashamedly selective recruiters.

Because we believe that a career is a journey, and not a destination, we choose to work with only the most credible people.

We form genuine partnerships with both our clients and the candidates we recruit. Our partnership approach enhances our understanding of the vacancy and the responsibilities of the role, as well as our client’s culture and wider commercial objectives.

Close partnerships with candidates ensure we only represent those whose experience and aptitudes we have a complete understanding of. They are only represented for the opportunities they genuinely want, the roles they are best suited to, for the best employers to work for.

We strive to nurture talent, expand our network and increase our knowledge of the sectors in which we work. By working in this way with only the best, we enable businesses to flourish and careers to soar.


I’ve worked with Kyna Associates on a number of roles and apart from the obvious metric – that they fill them with great talent – I’ve been particularly impressed by their transparency and refreshing approach to managing candidates. Unfortunately ethics is talked about rather than demonstrated by many recruitment companies but Kyna Associates do a great job of representing in the market place and I am happy to endorse them as recruitment partners.

Mickey and the Kyna team have provided invaluable support to me when I have been recruiting for a number of roles this year. They take the time to truly understand the culture of Towergate, as well as the requirements of the positions I have been recruiting for, and as a result always put forward a selection of appropriate candidates for interview. The quality and suitability of the candidates often leave me wishing I had more roles to offer!

They are a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them to others.

Having been on both sides as a recruiter and candidate seeking work it comes of some surprise when you come across an agency that is more interested in understanding the clients requirements and the individual’s themselves. James is that type of person and by investing his time in understanding the key strengths of an individual he is able to get the right result for both the candidate and the perspective employer.

Kenya helped me to take a next step in my work career and I'll never be grateful enough! But not only that. They taught me all the tricks to smash an interview and they helped me gaining confidence by finding my strengths and weaknesses.

I loved working with Kyna and in particular with...
