“I mainly like working at KB because there is no limit as to what I can achieve here. I started almost 6 years ago as a resourcer with no recruitment experience and now I am a principal consultant with the business on a future leadership programme with 5 promotions under my belt and not many places provide that sort of progression. I love the flexi starts and finish times as well as the fact we are rewarded for hard work and success.”

Dan Peace – Principal Consultant

Kingston Barnes is without doubt the best place to work. When presented with the opportunity to join a start-up in 2013 I was very excited about the prospect from the get go, was it a gamble? Absolutely! has it paid off? Completely!  I was a very competent recruiter with 10 years under my belt working for one of the largest recruitment agencies in the UK. So joining what was just James at the time in a small serviced office I thought there isn’t much more I need to know, or could learn. I’ve never been so pleased to be proved wrong! I have had the opportunity, autonomy and support to grow to become a Director and shareholder of Kingston Barnes. I’ve been able to shape my own future whilst being supported along the way.  I have the best work life balance I didn’t think was possible, allowing me to be successful in my career partnered with the right home life balance. I am extremely grateful that I work for an employer who encourages my own ideas and support changes moving forward. Kingston Barnes work as a team, supporting, recognising and rewarding success. We champion promotions with everyone to reach their own individual and team goals.  It is testament to our culture that we all enjoy spending time away from the office together. We are an organisation where everyone has a voice and the opportunity to reach their full potential, where there is no glass ceiling or obstacle in the way. It is a pleasure to be part of such a thriving business and I’m excited for the future.

“As a company we pride ourselves on getting to know and understand both our candidates and clients. However, this also extends to within our company, as we take the time to understand each other and really draw upon each other’s strengths. We celebrate, reward and recognise those who have delivered a great job, had a significant achievement or gone above and beyond. We regularly schedule in activates where we all spend time with each other, whether that’s a good old-fashioned night out, a team build event or a charity event. Understanding each other makes us feel valued, helps us work as a team and ultimately contributes to us delivering better service to our clients and supply chain.”
