Testimonials

I was introduced to Karen last year through a friend in the industry and when it was my time to move on I couldn’t think of any one better than Karen, given that she specialises in the fashion industry. Karen and her team took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for. Other agencies would send my details to companies with asking if it was something I wanted, I didn’t get that from Karen, She would ring me to discuss the role and when I expressed it wasn’t for me she LISTENED!

Before interviews Karen made time to speak to me, to go over any details or questions I had. She would also contact me after the interview to find out how it went and would get excited about it with you!

I am please to say that Karen has found me my dream role within the industry and I am extremely grateful for that. I received a lovely gift in my first week too which shows that Karen and her team care. I would 100% recommend Karen Collier careers to anyone looking for their next step in the fashion industry. If you are looking for a recruitment agency that’s supportive, caring, friendly, encouraging and with a team that will go above and beyond then KCC is for you.

Senior Technical Developer, Wensum Tailoring

This is the best recruitment agency I have ever come across. Karen and her team are unique in the sense that they really take the time to find out who you are and what you are looking for. Unlike other agencies who might push you to apply for jobs that aren’t for you, Karen really listened to what I wanted and was looking for. She found me a job opportunity that was perfect for me and supported me every step of the recruitment process. I was particularly impressed with the effort Karen made to meet me an hour before my interview, to calm my nerves and prep me as much as possible, and when I fortunately got the job, I was really touched with the beautiful bouquet of flowers I received on my first day of the job from Karen and the team. I would definitely recommend Karen Collier to all job searchers in the fashion industry, if you are looking for a personalized and friendly touch to what can often be a stressful recruitment process, get in touch with Karen, she’s the best!

Jennifer C

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.

Garment Technologist, Kitri Studio

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.

Ann N

Freelance Garment Technologist, Tesco

Out of all of the recruitment companies I have been in contact with Karen Collier Careers is the best I have come across.

Karen got me a job close to home working for a local company. Karen herself met with me before the interview to ensure that I was confident for the interview and answered any questions that I had.

When I first started in the job, it was a massive jump and change in my career. Karen supported me throughout the beginning and even called a few months in to it to ensure that everything was okay.

I will definitely be coming back here in the future when I am ready to look for the next step in my career.

Thank you both Karen and Jacqueline!

Karen really takes her time to get to know you, discover what you want in a job and what type of company you would like to work for, and then works extremely hard to get you that perfect job! Jacqueline and Karen are great for keeping in touch, from initial interviews even up to my first day at the new job, which truly made what usually be quite a stressful process enjoyable. I can not thank everyone at KCC enough!”

Clare Chambers

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.

Karen and Andy’s help and support has been so amazing, I felt like we were a team rather than just me on my own searching for a job.

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.
