At Keene and Lord we have over twenty five years experience operating in Search & Selection across the UK and Europe. Let's be honest, if you've dealt with Search & Selection companies before you may have had some mixed experiences. Whilst there are some highly reputable organisations in our industry, some unfortunately do not always operate in a professional manner.
Keene and Lord is a privately owned and highly reputable organisation run by individuals with experience in a variety of sectors including Recruitment to Recruitment, Logistics & Supply Chain, Automotive and Commercial. We have direct access to an enviable list of professionals, ranging from entry to Board level, within some of Europe's leading companies.
Whilst we do advertise and head hunt, over 70% of our candidates are the direct result of a recommendation or referral. Proof in itself that our methods work.
Over 80% of headhunting campaigns that we conducted for our clients in 2010 resulted in successful hires. We are true Search & Selection specialists and represent our candidates exclusively and with discretion.
Our services are focused on business; your business. At Keene and Lord we are doers and achievers which is reflected in the service we deliver. We make a point of meeting with all our clients and set ourselves high standards in relation to the level of care customers receive.
We invest heavily in staff recruitment, training and development to ensure that the highest standards of service and local knowledge are being offered to our customers at all times.
Our commitment to IT also enables us to support our staff with the latest technology and strengthen our customer service to unrivalled levels.
When you contact Keene and Lord you will receive a professional, intelligent response. We will deal with your enquiry efficiently and courteously and for the most part, you will have only one point of contact. That individual will endeavor to ensure that the service you want is the service you get. Above all, we want to understand your needs and develop a long term working relationship based on trust, knowledge and professionalism.
Before you can go anywhere, you've got to have a map. A piece of paper that says here you are, and here's where you want to go. For us our vision is to become the UK's leading and most trusted search and selection agency.
It's about building relationships, taking giant steps and running hard without getting out of breath. It's also about inspiring trust, demanding competency and getting it right every time. And just to be safe, supporting every amazing thing you do with a security blanket of service and support that gets bigger by the minute.
Solving sophisticated business challenges with intelligent, innovative recruitment solutions and building the bridges to get there by being more proactive and productive. It’s about having a recruitment partner whose entrepreneurial drive is as strong as your own.
