Read what our Clients and Candidates are saying about us:
"Keith is a professional, courteous recruiter that has a wealth of knowledge within the IT industry. What really impressed me most was his complete honesty and communication throughout the life cycle of the recruitment process. It was refreshing for a recruitment consultant to be up front and honest about the job role and expectations, my salary and career expectations, explaining about the culture of the company,wanting to know about me and my hobbies, explaining about contracting and how IR35 works.
Any queries that were raised to Keith he would always respond back to me promptly and it never came across as a chore. It was refreshing to receive some emails from Keith whilst I was undertaking the role to check in on me and see how the role was going. In my experience hardly any recruiters do that nowadays.
Thanks to Keith’s professionalism and skillset with the recruitment life cycle he made the experience seamless. I’d have no hesitation in liaising with Keith for any further job opportunities and would highly recommend him to others."

"The standard of CVs we receive are better than any of the recruitment companies we have used in the past and the customer service is also far superior. Avocet have helped us recruit more efficently"
“In my long experience, of dealing with hundreds of recruitment consultants (mostly as a candidate) I can honestly say that I found Keith to be the best. It’s not often, in the contracting world, for someone to take an interest in, and actively support, a candidate’s personal and professional development: yet Keith achieves this effortlessly. He always takes a great deal of time to ensure that candidates are the right match for a client and actively monitors feedback on both sides to ensure that all parties are happy with the fit, a long time after most consultants stop calling. I can attest that Keith’s top priority is quality over quantity and he delivers value to his clients whilst finding the best rates for his many happy candidates. I would, and have, recommended Keith’s personable service to clients and candidates alike, and would not hesitate to collaborate with him again in the future.”
