I’ve known Karen for over a decade now and love her commitment to the job and to all the candidates at KCC. I’ve recruited new members and also sought new opportunities with Karen and the process is always seamless and pleasant. Karen really knows the industry so will always match the right candidates for the role. She goes above and beyond and really supports you through the interview process. Through Karen I’ve  been offered fantastic career opportunities and I hope our working relationship continues for years to come!

Production Manager, Cefinn

Karen and Jacqueline were fantastic! I’m not sure my testimonial will do enough to say how absolutely fantastic they were and continue to be. Both such kind lovely professional people, putting yours and the clients requirements above their own. Very refreshing in this industry to have a recruiter look to MATCH you with a client rather than try to ‘sell’ you a position. No selling required for me! Karen and Jacq have placed me in my dream job and did so with such attention to detail and a real personal touch. Wouldn’t want to go anywhere else when I’m looking for my next opportunity, hopefully not for a while though! Thank you both very very much for everything.

I thoroughly recommend Karen Collier Careers.  Karen took the trouble to come and meet me in person for an hour prior to my interview, that personal approach meant a lot to me and really helped me to feel at ease.  I felt well supported in my first couple of weeks.  Karen is very affable, positive and down to earth, she knows from her own prior industry experience about the jobs she is recruiting for and only offers me appropriate roles.  This is the best agency I have ever come across in our industry.

Karen Collier Careers (Karen and Andy) found a new role for me as Production Manager.

It made me move from Amsterdam to London so also for people from abroad they do an excellent job.

Very personal and professional organisation. Well recommended!

I cannot thank everyone enough at Karen Collier Careers. The help and support I received with my interview preparation was extremely useful and it was so lovely to meet Karen before my interview to talk through everything. The support I received after my interview was just as great. Jacqueline and Karen were regularly in touch with me and it enabled me to feel more confident about the whole process. I was so happy to be offered the job and had my first day today. It was great! I loved it and I am so glad that I applied through Karen Collier. I thoroughly recommend the team to everyone, but especially those looking for an entry level role. It can be really hard to get an entry level job in the fashion industry and the Karen Collier team made me feel very supported and encouraged.

I would definitely recommend Karen Collier Careers after the business worked hard placing me in my role.  This included going above and beyond what I’ve experienced with other agencies by meeting me in person before my interview to ensure I was fully prepared.
