I cannot recommend Keystream highly enough. The commitment and passion of the entire team makes for an excellent service user experience. Keystream have helped me progress both my career and my business and are second to none. 2018 and was an enormously challenging year for me personally and professionally, Keystream were able to keep things moving when things were slow, they kept me positive and confident and most important they were really fundamental in helping me make informed decisions.

David – Business analyst

I found Keystream very valuable for me being my second contract with them. I specially want to take the opportunity to praise James who is very much capable of what he is doing. As soon as my first contract finished, he found me a new contract with almost no time or effort! The best part is that I completely trust their team to represent me professionally in-front of their clients.

Muzamil - SystmOne Application Support Analyst

Keystream have been very professional throughout the time I have been working with them. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and they had ensured that I was supported and updated at all times. Keystream always take the time in getting to know their candidates and liaise effectively giving advise where required, keeping me in the loop on potential developments or issues, working closely with you to help you feel supported throughout an assignment. They ensure that there is a direct point of contact with all staff willingly available to help you through any queries. You have been a pleasure to work with and a breath of fresh air in recruitment. I have been made to feel like a valued candidate by Keystream and I always look forward to working with you.

Hasmita – Programme Manager

The support received from my consultant was consistent, professional and supportive. I have never in all my years of contracting had the consistent support that I received from Sam Saunders at Keystream. Regular follows up were done to see how I was progressing. If I had any issues, I found the consultant approachable and empathetic. There was a true and genuine want for me to succeed in my role from the consultant. Fantastic advice and guidance on the healthcare and public sector

Lizette – Project Manager

Keystream have been extremely helpful, attentive and supportive, from the moment I was contacted, to supporting me through the interview process, to keeping me informed afterwards and pushing the client for a decision and throughout my contract. Keystream made it their priority to come and personally meet me on site, to see how I was settling in to meet my manager and director therefore the agent travelled many miles (from the SE (Kent) to Hereford near Wales that day. I have worked through Keystreams twice now and the staff have always been helpful and pleasant. I feel Keystreams understand my skills set, my knowledge and experiences and what I am looking for. I hope they can help with any future contracts.

Ellie – Business Analyst

I have been using Keystream for 5 years now and their efficiency, professionalism and general high standards never cease to amaze me. I don’t even register with other agencies anymore because Keystream supply me with absolutely everything I require and to a standard I’ve never experienced at other Agencies.

Phil – EMIS Facilitator

I have worked with may recruiters in my employment rolls over many years. Most just treat you like a number. With Keystream you get a sense of mutual respect and look out for your interests in post above and beyond the norm. Actively wanting me to retain them as my preferred agent, when I seek new opportunities.

Tarun – IT Project Manager

Keystream have been absolutely brilliant to work with. I have been working with them over a year and they always do their absolute best for candidates. They are informative about the jobs they are putting you forward for. They keep in touch, but not so much as to hassle you – it is the perfect amount. They respond quickly if you have queries. Overall, I would recommend Keystream to potential candidates – they really are very good.

Charlotte – Performance Manager

Attentive, efficient and friendly. These are the key words that I can think of when describing the team at Keystream. Their specialist consultants worked with me diligently to place me with my first role. Whilst continuing to stay in contact and maintain correspondence during my posting, they ensured my well-being. They had designed a recruitment plan driven directly for my requirements, enabling me to access the industry’s top people and positions. I feel I have developed a long-term relationship with Keystream that truly has become invaluable. Highly recommended.
