If you only read one more page on this website, read our client page. It says a lot about us.
Thomson Keene was established in 2002. Our principals, who already had a breadth of experience across contingency, contract and executive IT recruitment, wanted to bring together the best practices from each discipline.
On top of these, we were determined to prioritise long-term relationship building over process and methodology. That remains a key building-block for Thomson Keene. Likewise our promise to treat every assignment – junior or senior, single or multiple – with equal commitment.
The strength of our reputation, team and client partnerships is firm evidence that this approach has worked. It enables us to complete complex assignments, and to consistently match the right candidate to the right opportunity.
Whether you are a candidate or a client, you’ll have a single point of contact at Thomson Keene. Partnerships are important to us. And we know that partnerships develop best when you can pick up the phone, and ask for the name of a person, not just the company.
Sometimes, in this business, we need to have difficult conversations. Those conversations are less difficult when a level of mutual respect is already in place. Sometimes, an assignment needs a bit of perspective. We’re always willing to take a step back, and look at the challenge from another angle.
All of this tends to mean that Thomson Keene will never be the biggest recruitment company in the market. Which is okay, because both clients and candidates come to us for the difference we make, not for our size.
Whether you are in charge of a major recruiting exercise or you are an individual looking for a career change, you are a client in our eyes. And as such, you'll be treated with complete respect by Thomson Keene.
Our all-encompassing network of contacts means we often have access to roles that remain unadvertised and candidates who aren't 'on the market'. We look globally and beyond your sector to find the very best people for each position.
As a candidate, we'll provide you with all the advice and help you need to prepare you for interview and we'll always work hard to find roles that genuinely match your skills and experience.
