GK Recruitment has four-ged a winning partnership with one of Lancashire’s leading IT companies.
Fast-expanding Holker IT used our specialist services to source a new technician for their revered helpdesk … and ended up recruiting an additional FOUR in the space of two months!
“Finding GK Recruitment has been a godsend,” said Jan Cook, operations director at Holker IT, based in Burnley. “Sourcing talented technicians is imperative, but it can be time-consuming and unproductive.
“Our clients have come to expect the best in service levels, particularly through our renowned helpdesk, and we need the right people who fit the profile at Holker IT.
“Given their speciality in IT recruitment, we decided to hand GK Recruitment a go and the decision has paid off, given the talented people who have secured positions with us.
“But it is not just a case of them finding us good technicians, it is the way they have integrated into our business. They understand what we are about and what we are striving to achieve going forward because they listen, understand and manage the brief.
“Their senior recruiter, Earlan Kirwan, took time out to spend a day at our helpdesk to get a proper feel of what we do, and understand the holistic approach we take with our staff and customers.
“That was very impressive and the results of their efforts are there for all to see.”
GK Recruitment managing director Gary Keay said: “Holker IT is a perfect fit for us, a thrusting IT company with a good reputation and a desire to keep on growing.
“Candidates are always going to be interested when opportunities come along at firms of such stature and we are delighted have forged this partnership with them.”
