Michael Williams, Head of Development, Ideal Shopping Direct

Ideal Shopping are a fast-paced, creative company and we look for candidates that can embrace that ethos.

We’re serious about ensuring that the fit is right for the employee as well as ourselves, and Kyna do a fantastic job of representing us to candidates, and bringing the right people to our attention.

Kyna manage the candidates all the way through the process from selection and preparation to interview and offer, and their straightforward , professional attitude means that I would recommend them to any potential recruiters. They are a great example of how you can make an impression, even in a highly competitive market, by getting the basics right.

Matthew Sagar, Recruitment Manager,

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.

Jo Kennedy, Head of Marketing and Partnerships, Towergate Insurance, Broking division

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.

Abdul Hoque, Project Manager, Combined Insurance

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.

James is a highly capable and professional individual, what would you rather have – an agency doing the right by you or an agency who deals with numbers that we are normally accustomed to…

Neil Martin, Director of Technology and Business Systems, EDI Pearson

Recruiters fall into two classes – CV box shifters on one side and the few real professionals on the other. I have used James’ services for a number of years and he is certainly in the latter category. I need someone who appreciates how essential it is to really understand my business requirements but also the importance of meeting and interviewing prospective candidates face to face before they are submitted. In essence I need targeted quality placements, which is why I use James and why he has been so successful.

Kate Constable, HR Project Manager, Ageas Insurance

In 2009/10 I was involved in setting up an insurance company for Tesco Bank as part of a joint venture they had entered into with Ageas Insurance. James was a trusted recruitment partner during the project who helped us to place several change specialists who took key project manager roles. He had a good understanding of our requirements and our business and always put forward quality candidates for the vacancies that were placed with him.

Delyth Lee, Retail Marketing Director, Towergate Partnership Ltd

Mickey has been working with me on my marketing recruitment needs for over two years now and I’ve never failed to be impressed with the quality. Mickey’s collaborative approach means he truly understands our business culture and the requirements of the roles thereby ensuring that I receive appropriate candidates so I don’t waste my time reviewing unsuitable CVs.

David Brown, Director Software, Maxim, Maxim

I have worked with James on a variety of highly specialist senior IT assignments over the last 9 years. On all occasions James has provided an exemplary service. He has outstanding domain knowledge, and has quickly short listed highly suitable candidates each time I have worked with him taking the stress out of recruitment. James is a result driven professional who lives up to his commitments. When I need to fill a post James the first recruiter I call.
