In an industry that ‘sells people’ it seems easy to lose sight of the personal side and concentrate on sales. It has been refreshingly nice to work with Dawn to secure the next step in my career. High importance has been placed on me as an individual, what my needs are, what my expectations are and what I want for my future. Contact and interviews were arranged around my availability and at every stage of the process the goal has been to ensure the right move for me. I am thankful for the time and effort taken in ensuring the best start to this new and exciting opportunity.

Hospitality Manager Belfast Airport, Autogrill Catering UK

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

General Manager, Las Iguanas Restaurants

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.

Head Chef , Aqua Italia

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

FOH Manager , Aztec Hotel, Bristol

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

General Manager, Bills Restaurant

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

General Manager, Peyton and Byrne, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew

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
