Don't just take our word for it !

Here's what our clients and candidates say about us...

Thankyou so much for all your support, you and your company have been wonderful to deal with, so professional and yet so kind and normal! I apologise for my shocked reaction today, I really believed I wasn't good enough! But thankyou very much, you have been a pleasure to deal with.
Kindest Regards,


Kirkham Young; a highly professional company that provides the personal touch.

Looking for a new job is complex; “Am I right for the company and is the company right for me” are two of the many questions a candidate asks themselves when searching for a new role.

With Kirkham Young these questions are less of a challenge as Tina and Sam spend time getting to know you, to develop a clear understanding of your skill mix, your requirements and your needs; thus the job opportunities that are presented to you are already a good match.

I found the approach of Tina, Sam and the team to be professional yet personal; at Kirkham Young I didn’t feel like “just another candidate”, I felt as though Tina really knew me; I really valued her friendly open approach, her support, coaching and commitment to finding me the ideal position.

I have now been successful; my new job is both exciting and challenging and I haven’t looked back! For those of you out there looking for a recruitment company you can rely on, develop a relationship with and have success then you have found it in Kirkham Young.

Congratulations on getting me a place with GE! I couldn’t have got it without your help. It has been a pleasure to work with someone so motivated and organised. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


Since my first contact with KY on the telephone, I have felt very comfortable with contacting Alan Dias and his colleagues over any issues that I had. At a time that is depressing for all students, when for the first time your future is unsure, KY gave me great belief in myself, which radiated into my interview. Prior to my interview I was coached on what areas to research and what to expect on the day. Following my offer from VWR I have been provided with excellent 'aftercare' from KY. This is a big thank you, to you all for helping me secure a position, so soon after I finished university!


Alan has provided a highly professional approach to recruiting, offering a high level of knowledge of the market place with excellent communication skills with both employers and employees

I have been speaking with Alan at Kirkham Young for the past year regarding recruitment for Perkin Elmer. Alan has a very approachable and friendly personality, this combined with an efficient and professional attitude helps maintain a very smooth and productive recruitment process.

Kirkham Young is one of the easiest companies to deal with when it comes to the recruitment life cycle and this is largely down to Alan and the excellent levels of communication. CV’s provided are both clear and descriptive and if any additional information is required this is obtained immediately.

From my perspective Kirkham Young are one of my preferred agencies and easily the most professional and enjoyable company to work with. Alan plays a large part in this process and I hope that our working relationship continues for a long time.

I could rely on Alan Dias to make sure that every company I got in contact with was a well chosen match. The list of companies Kirkham Young deal with is impressive and Alan's professional advice and in-depth knowledge of the field have been invaluable for me. K Y have managed to find me the job I have always wanted but should I decide to change my career path, I would ask Alan to look into things for me.


When starting my job search, I was quite specific in the type of opportunity I was looking for and registered with a total of 4 agencies. Alan was/Kirkham Young were the only agent to provide interesting vacancies and only contacted me with openings that fitted my criteria - proving that they had actually listened to my needs. Within three months of my initial conversation with Alan/Kirkham Young I had secured a fantastic and genuinely exciting opportunity. The fast, professional and friendly service was a breath of fresh air compared to some other agents and I would have no hesitation in using Alan/Kirkham Young in the future either as a candidate or as an employer.
