Get the most out of us. Kenect Personnel take a great deal of care and time selecting the clients we work with. We do this to ensure we are successful. The market continues to be buoyant in our specialist areas, despite recent recessions. We realise we can’t provide a perfect service to every company that is recruiting at any given time, that is why we prefer to select our clients carefully and give them our undivided attention. The way we select clients we want to work with very much follows a clear pattern and ultimately it comes down to 2 factors: Commitment Communication These areas of focus are essential for all good business relationships. We don’t ask for any more than that.
So, to get the most out of us the following information is very important.
Commitment Approve fees up front. Is the role you’re recruiting for approved, if it isn’t signed off please let us know. Make sure the job spec’ and salary levels are realistic, ask us for help in this area if you are unsure. Meet the recruiters you are working with. Don’t approach more than 3 specialist recruitment companies, or just use us if possible. Agree a level of urgency and a time frame for completing the recruitment.
Communication Constructive feedback on CVs and interviews within a reasonable time In order for us to react effectively to the timescale set for your vacancy, we ask kindly that communication through emails and phone calls are answered as soon as possible. Line manager contact where possible To have the above in place and the expectations set makes the recruitment process much smoother. Knowing how best to prioritise your vacancy helps us meet your expectations. In return you will get a service unsurpassed by other specialist recruiters.

Permanent Recruitment The permanent recruitment cycle can be very complex. In today’s competitive market place it is vital that a candidate’s expectations are managed throughout the process and we can take an active role in this. Recently we have found the much publicised skills shortage in our sectors has really taken hold. Nearly all the companies we recruit for are struggling to cope with the demands placed on their shortage of skilled workers due to the upturn in manufacturing and the shortage of engineers. Kenect Personnel mitigate any risk by being constantly aware of the sectors we recruit within and the candidates therein and constantly interview/network and source talent on your behalf. Kenect ensure we are aware of the best candidates and the most committed companies. Our expertise and bespoke service ensures success by being diligent, intelligent and hard working. Our recruitment process begins when one of our team of specialist consultants visit your premises and takes a detailed brief covering duties and experience needed and cultural fit, advising on current salary trends and skills shortages.
From here an in-depth search and selection process takes place whereby Kenect’s consultants will access the in-house database, various specialist external sites and most importantly our unique network and connections. The next phase is to discuss the client’s role and ascertain the candidate’s interest and gain approval before a CV is sent. Once an interview is arranged, we will maintain contact with the candidate; ensuring salary expectations are realistic; handling post interview feedback, offers, negotiations, start dates and post placement debriefs.
Contract Recruitment At Kenect Personnel our contract recruitment service offers you a flexible option to cover peaks in projects or to free up permanent members of staff for other projects. Contract requirements can be urgent and very specific. We act swiftly and efficiently to provide our clients with the right engineers with minimum fuss and maximum speed. Temporary or Contract requirements maybe for one person to cover a day long assignment, to a whole team of people on a long term basis to run an ongoing project. Whichever the case, our Contract team has the expertise to find the right person. Prior to commencement of work, all candidates will be fully briefed as to the nature of your business, the job specification, what is required of them and provided with any equipment necessary to complete the task in hand.
Once the candidate has commenced an assignment, we maintain continuous liaison with both the client and the candidate to ensure that the project is on schedule and there are no underlying issues. This process has proven to be critical in the retention of Temporary and Contract labour. To be able to offer a full consultancy service, both the needs of the candidate and the clients have to be satisfied. Often due to the nature of a number of the industries we serve the skill sets demanded in the business will vary from Design to Maintenance and all disciplines in between. With that in mind we have specialist recruiters in the various disciplines who have the latest software to help stay in touch with both clients and candidates alike to ensure they are aware of their specific market at any given point.
What our clients think of us... “Kenect Recruitment’s Industrial division has been fantastic in helping us reach our quota for Warehousing and FLT staff. It’s always challenging to get the right staff and numbers in at times, however Kenect helped us incredibly well. Whether it was a call for 5 staff immediately or 50… they always manage to get us the right quality staff every time!” “We use Kenect Recruitment to help supply our multi-drop class 2 drivers. We have used many agencies in the past but Kenect stand out by always being honest and committed. The industry we work in is very fast paced and at times it can be a very difficult job to do. We always call Kenect first as they will either supply us a very good driver or be honest and forthcoming if they haven’t one free… They don’t just place drivers for the sake of it, and that’s why I would recommend this agency over any other”. “Kenect Recruitment have a great Driving division and the personnel to match it. They always supply high quality driving staff even at unsociable times of the day. I would have no problem recommending this Employment Business and having looked through their vetting process in length, I have to say… it’s to the highest standard”.
“I have had the pleasure of working with the team at Kenect Recruitment since their inception in 2012. Whenever I have engaged them they have had the unerring ability to supply the right staff, on time, every time. The professionalism and commitment of the directors and staff is always assured. And this dedication to their customers produces what I believe is an industry leading service level which I am sure they are rightly proud of. Highly recommended”. “We have used Kenect Recruitment Ltd to help us recruit a professional field sales agent and finance administrator. On both of these occasions we had a very fast response. Kenect put forward some fantastic CV’s and in turn we interviewed some brilliant candidates. The positions were filled in no time & both of the original candidates are still with us today. When we require any further office staff I will call Kenect immediately without hesitation”.
Kenect-ing the right staff to your business!
What our clients think of us... ”We have used Kenect Recruitment for a couple of years now and their service has been second to none. Everything from the response time, honesty, quality of staff supplied and fulfilment has been exceptional. Our company relies heavily on temporary staff (both LGV Drivers & Warehouse staff) and not only do Kenect cover these bookings but they have also supplied a lot of our current employees through temp to perms. We were using a lot of agencies before Kenect Recruitment introduced themselves but now I can honestly say that we have no need to go anywhere else and can rest assure all our demands are met consistently. If you want a no nonsense, trustworthy, professional service then I would recommend Kenect Recruitment over any other I have dealt with in the past”. “We have appointed the services from Kenect Recruitment for a number of years in which time they always manage to provide experienced LGV drivers, especially at short notice.
