Client Testimonials

Over what has been an incredibly tough time for most of us throughout Lock down, I found myself as one of many who has been made redundant from my last position.  This left me with a real struggle both financially and emotionally..

As I was already familiar with Kate+Co(Sarah in particular from many years ago), I was straight on the phone to them.

Over the last couple of months both Sarah and Shirley have been so incredibly supportive and kind and really helped build back my confidence. They  helped me to remain positive and with thanks helped to get me into my now current role for which I could not be more grateful.  I would like to thank both ladies from the bottom of my heart for all their support and constant updates, keeping me in check over what has been such a hard time.  Not only helping me get back into work but always so lovely to know that they are always at the end of the phone should I need any further support or even just a giggle. Thank you Kate+Co.

Late last year I was introduced to Shirley Forrester at Kate+Co in Solihull and I immediately felt comfortable in her company.

She asked me about myself and listened (so many people don’t), to that end the placements I have been offered by Shirley have ‘fitted’ my profile beautifully.

The information initially gleamed from your clients has enabled her to select the correct candidate to suit their requirements and in my opinion, she does it so well. She keeps in touch and is always there to answer any queries that may arise. Thank you Shirley

I would like to thank you Shirley for all your support, in putting me forward for the Business Analyst role.

Since first speaking to you on the phone, I found you to be polite, explained the role clearly and provided information without delay.

The information you provided before and after the phone interview and face-to-face, really helped me secure the role.

Things have moved at a fast pace in a very positive way, and I’ve never had a role where I’ve had initial communication, 2 interviews and secure a role within a month!

I’m very pleased with all the help and support you provided, and I will definitely recommend Kate+Co and yourself to anyone wishing to find a new role.

Thanks again.

‘Michael Hobbs is the most helpful and friendly recruitment agent I have ever worked with, who genuinely and passionately cares about finding the right role for you. Throughout the whole process he always kept me updated so I was never left in the dark, and spent the time out of hours to accommodate me helping me to prepare for my interviews. He has a knack for knowing which role you will be perfect for, and is so reassuring and easy to talk to about any concerns or issues. I really can’t recommend him and the Kate+Co team highly enough.’

I wanted to just say how brilliant and supportive Michael Hobbs has been throughout my recruitment process, any worries / doubts I have had he has always been there on call to make sure everything is running smoothly and continuously tries his best to fix any problems. I have joined with a lot of agencies and spoken to a lot of different staff but Micheal is by far the best agent / recruiter I have had, always willing to go the extra mile which is exactly what it is all about !! You should be incredibly proud of him. He is a valuable member to your team and I hope he continues to prosper at Kate +Co!

Since moving to the Midlands this year, I researched the recruitment sector and clearly defined the top recruitment companies I would like to be represented by.

I had my interview with Michael Hobbs a few months ago. Since then, he has been the most genuinely proactive and passionate recruiter about finding me the right job. He is so driven and truly has made it his mission to try and place me in a job that would be the right fit for me – just not placing me in any position.

He proactively searched the market place and found a position.  He didn’t give up when the company said they had a current advertisement for direct candidates to apply.

He wrote a letter to the Head and he confirmed an interview before the official interview process and before they had even read my letter! Amazing!

Michael contacted me all the way through the process and wanted to see my presentation, editorial test and how the official interview day went.

I cannot recommend Michael highly enough -he is fantastic and a true asset to Kate+Co.

Michael was super helpful, friendly and organised whilst finding a job for me.  He kept me updated throughout every stage of the recruitment process and made sure I stayed positive and found a role that really suited my situation.

I Cannot recommend this recruitment agency enough! After months of applying for jobs by myself and many rejections, I decided to use some help from a recruiter and I sent my CV to Kate+Co. They found me a job straight away! The application process for my specific position took one month and I was constantly supported thought-out the process. Especially Michael, my personal recruiter, has been a great help for me! Thank you, Michael! Thank you, Kate+Co! Keep up the good work!
