I was contacted by itk recruitment to champion my candidacy with a top restaurant group (Las Iguanas). The service was amazing, Simon worked closely with me to provide support and guidance throughout the whole process. itk contacted me regularly, giving me updates on my progress which was brilliant. They provided excellent interview preparation and really managed to put me at ease. I have never had such support from a recruiter. This was all done in an extremely professional manner and they really sold the company message to me. Given this, I would highly recommend itk for both company and candidate. The service is second to none. Christine O Hagan
I got in touch with itk and asked for their help to put me through to one of their many prestigious clients. Their screening was prompt, meticulous and left great first impressions. I felt looked after and really at ease throughout the whole process. There was open, ongoing communication and was never rushed into any decisions. Their priorities were to make sure the right candidate was matched to the right job and I appreciate that as I’m sure any employer would. Thanks to itk recruitment I got a job which I love and turned out to be a little success story, in fact; I still use itk’s services for my recruitment needs and enjoy the occasional catch up.

After a few months of job hunting and answering standard scripted questions and receiving generic email replies and mostly no replies at all it was refreshing to receive a call from Simon who instantly showed a genuine interest in me and my CV. He invited me to meet to talk through my experience and discussed the right job for me rather than push me for the one which I had initially applied. Within 3 days my first interview was confirmed, I accepted that position and am happily progressing from that day to this, just going to show that Simon and itk really were ‘in the know’.” Chlow Dowle
From the first conversation we had right up until my successful appointment Dawn was fab. She has a strong hospitality background and a great personality, which made the recruitment process an enjoyable one, and I can’t thank her enough for her assistance in my own journey to success. Kate Kee
I can’t thank Anouska enough for my placement at Kew Gardens, originally I applied for a senior chef role at another venue however; Anouska interviewed me in such a friendly and professional manner that I was at ease and able to talk about myself and experiences. She spotted an attribute in me that she matched to a completely different role that I had been looking for as a Deputy General manager at Kew Gardens. With her advice and guidance I went to the interview and was given the job, 6 months later I have been promoted to the General manager of Kew Gardens. Paul McIntyre
Anouska from itk Recruitment has been an amazing recruitment advisor to me during the last 5 years of my career. She invests time in her candidates and has such sound knowledge of the hospitality industry she is exceptional at placing candidates with the right company, ensuring the growth potential within the company and the company culture and values matches the candidates desires. If I was ever to looking for a new role, then I would only use Anouska. Shakira Englefield
itk Recruitment were pivotal in securing my current position. The communication was seamless from start to finish and I cannot speak highly enough of the support I was given together with their fresh and enthusiastic approach to guiding both the client and I through a very complicated application and interview process. And indeed to a very satisfactory conclusion into my current role! Mat Gibbons
