“We were very pleased with the search and selection services offered by Keller Monroe. The consultant was extremely professional; taking the time to come and visit EAST, meet some of the team and listen carefully, so that she had a thorough understanding of the Company culture and the specific needs of the role before beginning the assignment. We were provided with an excellent shortlist and ultimately a candidate that fitted our brief extremely well. I would not hesitate in recommending Keller Monroe; they are an expert in their field and a pleasure to work with.”

“Getting not only the right skills and experience, but also the right cultural fit when recruiting at a senior level is critical. Working with Keller Monroe, they made sure they covered off every angle to deliver a quality shortlist of candidates and ultimately a successful hire.”

 Neil Morrison, HR Director, Random House Group

“Sarah is one of those rare breeds of recruitment consultants… She treats her candidates as human beings and not just as a number! As such she builds very strong relationships with them and gets a really good feel for their motivations, their skill set and their cultural fit with the potential employer. She also has the ability to quickly grasp the strategic issues facing her client’s business, and she is also confident enough in her own knowledge of the market and of the roles that she’s recruiting for to challenge her client when she feels the brief might not be entirely appropriate or relevant.”

Martin Newman – CEO, Practicology

 “I have worked with Keller Monroe on a number of occasions when we have required a more proactive headhunt approach to reach passive candidates in the marketplace.  Keller Monroe take the time to really understand what our requirements are and with their industry knowledge and thorough screening process around skill set and culture they are able to present candidates that suit our needs precisely.  They also work to structured timescales which are agreed in advance and these allow us to manage our internal process accordingly.  I would have no hesitation in recommending Keller Monroe to clients looking for quality candidates and I look forward to working with them again.”
