At KV Recruitment we take time to get to know you as a person, to understand your company and your candidate requirements. KVR takes a holistic approach to recruitment, which is why a high percentage of the candidates we place remain with our clients’ companies for far longer than the industry average.
Promoting your company to candidates
We take your brand to the market in a positive and professional manner. We promote the ethos of your company and coach candidates in the role they are expected to fill.
Keyword matching does not work for the typical technical roles we fill; our selection process is personal and systematic, and founded in twenty years of experience working closely with software professionals.
Screening for skills and suitability
Screening is a process to determine not only the skills of candidates, but also their aspirations. We also discuss important practical matters that frequently get overlooked, such as travel options and work schedules, so that we can be sure a candidate ‘fits’ across a wide range of criteria.
KVR thoroughly screens candidates to ensure their skills are accurately presented and to gauge:
Candidate competency and commitment
Candidate aspirations and character
Candidate culture fit / attitude
Generating trust and enthusiasm
We get to know our candidates as individuals, and build trust that enhances the candidate’s overall experience of making an application to your company with KVR.
We work with candidates to ensure that they are very well prepared for interview and enthused about the role on offer.
A census ‘live’ candidate search in two weeks
Our systematic search process will give you confidence that we are able cover all the live candidates on the market within two weeks.
Local talent pool built over 20 years
Candidates are in short supply for many of the roles we are asked to fill. KVR longevity and specialism means we have long-standing, active working relationships with the software development community in the South East of England.
Built on 20 years of recruiting in the Thames valley we have an extensive, local talent pool that we constantly cultivate to turn passive candidates to fresh, active candidates for the right opportunity. Our experience and talent pool ease the fulfilment of hard-to-fill vacancies
A fully managed recruitment process
A successful recruitment process is a journey that builds momentum at pre-determined checkpoints, from initial briefing to orientation and on-boarding.
KVR manages each step in the recruitment process to ensure there is constant progress towards a positive conclusion. We will brief you on the relative merits of each candidate and their short- and long-term suitability for your company.
We succeed only if we help you to succeed
We only succeed as recruiters if we help you to succeed in finding the right candidates. It may sound glib, but we believe it, and everything we do is based on the principle that KV Recruitment can only be successful by helping clients succeed in meeting their recruitment goals consistently.
The days of ‘first past the post’ recruitment are, happily, fading.
KVR only achieves its high client satisfaction rates and high placement retention rates by getting to know our clients and matching the right candidates and right skillsets to vacancies.
