CAN’T get the staff? The Kite Consulting Group is a recruitment agency that boasts that it can find the most talented people out there. “We believe that integrity is doing the right thing when nobody is looking,” is one quote from the Kite website. It’s a nice definition, and a fine core value. Kite hunts out the best people, contract or permanent, for every hire in its market. It also delivers return on a company’s recruitment investment, promising “more value per pound of recruitment spend than any other channel”. The BV judging panel felt that Kite’s impressive commitment to its specialist task, its focus on efficiency – and that succinct “integrity” definition – were more than enough to justify the Best Financial Services Recruitment Agency Award.
