Our people are our greatest asset. We have gained the reputation as one of the best local recruiters in the northern region and this is a testament to the fact that what we do is genuine and improving all the time. We have been established for over 20 years and within that time we have recruited and retained some of the best recruiters in the market.
All our consultants are dedicated to doing the best job they can while offering the best levels of service they can. They have a real passion for what they do. Everyone in our business from consultant through to Director has a responsibility to manage a desk. Directors and Managers lead by example and engage relationships with other senior external stakeholders and have their own relationships with candidates. We are one team and truly understand the importance of having our leadership team – LEAD from the front.
Our average length of service is 6 years. Our longest standing employee is Julia O’Neill in the Warrington office who manages the team and has been here for 15 years. We commit to develop our people whether its into management roles or to further their career as a consultant opening new doors and becoming more successful, providing people with fresh challenges that they enjoy overcoming.
Recently, we have had returners to the business – this speak volumes for where we are moving towards, and where we have been. We have attracted these experienced, well networked finance recruiters back to the business and they are already delivering results and significantly rewarded for this.
“I joined RK in December 1998 on the opening day of their 2nd regional office – this based in Chester. I ran the temporary desk for 18 months at clerical and senior level covering the Wirral, Chester and Wales. I was then transferred as requested to the Altrincham office where I took over a temp desk covering the South Manchester and Cheshire area as this was nearer to my home base. I achieved a temp desk of 44 finance temps during this time.
In July 2011 our new Director approached me in her early days of being with the company and suggested I would be an ideal candidate for managing the Altrincham office – an opportunity which I agreed to immediately – a fantastic opportunity given I had been with RK for 12 years and was also part time. In May 2013 we formed what we affectionately know as the HUB in our Warrington office from where we cover Liverpool, Wirral, Chester, Wales, Warrington, Manchester and Cheshire areas and I manage a fantastic team of 4 very experienced consultants. In 2013 I achieved highest biller within the RK brand based on a 3 day week – never being able to switch off from work being my work ethic and it pays !! My team also have the same mentality which makes us very successful. I now cover interim and perm PQ/Qual desk for the Cheshire, Wales and Manchester areas.”
