I wanted to say a massive thank you to you both for continually trying to help me secure a role.

I couldn't be more grateful to Louise and the team at Christopher Keats Media.

The team couldn't do enough to cater to my needs, whether it was arranging times that suited me or calming my pre-interview nerves. It was a quick, straightforward and very pleasant process that felt tailored to me and ultimately landed me my dream job.

Pleasant and Personable
My sincere thank you to Leann and her fantastic team who supported me from applying to the job role and then securing a job! At every step of the process they were professional and supportive, which made me comfortable, confident and encouraged. Their personal touch of working with their candidates makes Christopher Keats Media very unique and loyal.

Genuine & Warm
Christopher Keats Media have been really wonderful! Not your usual recruiters, no long wait times or buzzwords used on me! I found Leann and the ladies here so genuine and warm. They were concerned with me getting the right position, and gave plenty of careful briefing ahead of the interview. I would unreservedly recommend them to anyone seeking a role in creative industries.
Proactive & Efficient!
Compared to the experiences I have had with other recruitment agencies Christopher Keats Media has by far been the most proactive and efficient! Within the space of a week I had gone from receiving a phone call detailing a companies interest to having my second interview and being offered the job! I can't thank Leann and Louise enough for their words of reassurance and their abundance of knowledge, without their help I wouldn't at my desk now writing this testimonial!
Junior Account Executive
Personal & Effective
My experience at Christopher Keats was personal and effective. They made sure I had all the right information to prep for my interviews and keep me motivated throughout the selection process. I always felt confident and relaxed and am overjoyed to have secured such a dream job opportunity as a result. I would highly recommend their services to anyone wanting to find a career they love.
Securing a Fantastic Job!
My thoughts on the recruitment process are that it was significantly better than other recruitment agencies I’ve spoken to. With most agencies, they felt like a necessary evil, like I was ‘dealing with them’ whereas with CKM, it didn’t feel cumbersome or difficult. You very much set yourselves apart because it felt like you had my career and best interests in your minds at all times, as opposed to that being an afterthought.
Leann was responsive, highly knowledgeable, and kept me updated at all stages of the process. She also offered interview advice that was tailored to me and specific to the role I was interviewing for which was very helpful. She was friendly, approachable and honest, which gave me great confidence in what she was doing.
I have subsequently secured a fantastic job and am very grateful for the hard work, advice and support from all at CKM
Championed all the way…
The team at Christopher Keats do not stop until they have found you your perfect role within your dream company! I feel so lucky to have been able to call Christopher Keats my recruiter, as they have gone above and beyond to help secure my now permanent role at McCann Worldgroup. Throughout my journey, they have shown a great amount of support, shared their knowledge and know-how of perfecting my interview technique, they have championed me, reassured and guided me and delivered an incredible service. What makes them a cut above the rest is that they listen to your requirements, they take your skills and personality into mind and match you with an organisation that suits you. Thank you Louise, Leann, Becky & Henri...you all are truly amazing!
We are always lucky to meet our great candidates and nothing is better than finding them a brilliant new role but when we were privileged to meet these two sisters, this was the result........
My name is Naz and I’m 21 years of age. The most important attribute that the ladies at Christopher Keats have is their honesty. They were so determined in their efforts to find me a perfectly suited role that it almost seemed too good to be true. It’s hard to find agencies who genuinely want you to be happy, but thanks to them I now have a permanent role at a top media company and I work with some incredible like-minded people. Thank you for being so genuine, kind and caring, and for finding both my sister and I great jobs!
My name is Ceyda and I’m Naz’s sister. My sister’s aura had dramatically changed due to her change in career. This gave me the confidence to consider contacting Christopher Keats because I myself was in employment for a long time that gave me no satisfaction! I had been to many agencies and quite frankly I wasn't sure how Christopher Keats would stand out, or actually even help. I plucked up the courage to just go for it after some push from my sister.
Christopher Keats not only helped me find a job in my desired field but also stayed by me every bit of the process leading to job! Even through times where I was literally lost on the way to an interview they were their to calm me and direct me. (I got that job!)
Christopher Keats made me believe in myself again through their constant motivation and ability within their own field. Great women and a great agency!
In her best interests...
"I am so lucky to have worked alongside Christopher Keats. Right from the beginning they were simply amazing! I received sound advice, reassurance when nervous and tips on how to put the best side of me forward.
Unlike most agencies I have used, the team connected with me immediately and had a clear understanding of the type of person I am and what was in my best interest. Anyone would be lucky to work with them."

CK - Coming Up Top-Trumps
"I first signed up with Christopher Keats looking for my first job - 10 years ago! As someone with a massive case of wanderlust and always in and out of the country, it's reassuring to know that when I am back in the UK looking for temp work to top-up the funds, I can always go back to them and they are always as welcoming as ever. As a candidate for a number of agencies, I can always rely on Becky to come up trumps. Unlike some other agencies, you are not just another CV to add to the profile; she listens to you, supports and guides you and finds what you are looking for. They are such a caring, lovely bunch of ladies who are always happy to see you, even if it is just to grab one of their A-MAZing cakes in a jar!"

The Christopher Keats ladies have been indescribable. They were ferociously determined to find me a job that I would be happy in. I graduated this summer and Christopher Keats not only had rolling temp work for me from week to week but they also got me a lot of work experience in media and advertising companies. Now, thanks to the persistent efforts made by CK I am now permanently employed at CHI & Partners, a top advertising company, as receptionist and could not be happier! It was the only recruitment agency I truly felt had my interests at the forefront of their minds and I still keep in touch now - they are wonderful people and also good friends. I would go as far as to say the best creative recruitment agency out there!

Team Assistant/Sales Coordinator
Caring and proactive attitude...
I have tried various media based agencies over the years and I have to say Becky and the team at Christopher Keats far outshone other companies with their caring and proactive attitude. It’s very rare to find an agency that is truly invested in finding the job that fits what you are looking for and actively communicates with you on a regular basis. I will definitely be keeping in touch with the CK team!
They made my job search a smooth ride...
'Becky and Leann are out and out expert recruiters.

A candidate experience that has been second to none, with a real personable touch to preparation, feedback and expectation management.'

You have been so amazing – i really appreciate all the help you have given me, not only with the job hunt but also helping me be more confident as a person. I’ve never had an agency take such good care of me. I will absolutely keep in touch with you guys about any new support roles we need to fill in my new role – don’t worry about that.
I'm grateful for their support and trust...
I would like to thank Becky and the team at Christopher Keats for giving me a chance.
I was temping for a while, with no sense of structure and stability, trying to find a place where I could excel professionally. It wasn’t until I registered with CK when I was finally involved in work and companies I was interested in. After temping for them three times in a short period of time, I managed to secure my first ever PA role at Weber Shandwick.
I'm grateful for their support and can trust that if I am in need of work in the future, they'll be the first people I'll turn to.
CK have provided me with many opportunities to further my career...
Christopher Keats have provided me with many opportunities to further my career since moving to London.Becky and the team listen to their candidates, and will put you forward for roles that will suit you both professionally, and personally.

I am constantly recommending Christopher Keats to anyone looking for a successful recruitment experience
The Financial Times
Always made time to prep me well before interviews
Dealing with Christopher Keats was a great experience - they really treated me with great importance and always made time to prep me well before interviews. Becky was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was brilliant at matching me to the right interviews and companies. It was through her that i found my role at UKTV, that Becky said I would love - and she wasn't wrong! It's a testament to CK's relationship with their clients, and how well they know them. They will be my first port of call should I ever need a new job in the future!
Post Production Coordinator
Within weeks they had set me up with a successful interview...
Like all graduates, leaving university without a job is a worrying time.Christopher Keats could not have been more helpful from the moment I signed up to them.
After our initial interview, Becky and Leanne kept in regular touch with me to inform me of possible job roles available, reassuring me that they were trying their absolute best to place in a suitable role. Within weeks they had set me up with a successful interview as a temporary Team Coordinator at Mindshare, and 2 months in my contract was extended to a 6 month position with the opportunity to become permanent.
I couldn't be happier here and I am so grateful to Christopher Keats for going above and beyond to find me a job and a company that suits me so perfectly.
I am forever grateful for their contribution to my start in the Media world

CK team have not only really looked after us but have become great friends
Jordan and I heard about Christopher Keats from my cousin who was placed by Christopher Keats at Lida.
We are both at Uni together and wanted to get some temp work and media experience during Uni hols and we’ve never looked back..between us we have temped at PR agencies, Advertising Agencies and Event Companies including Cohn & Wolfe, M & C Saatchi, Manning Gottlieb OMD and Roland Mouret – we’re always paid on time, we’ve got some awesome media experience and it feels like the Christopher Keats team have not only really looked after us but have become great friends!
It’s rare to find an agency that genuinely listens to what you want ...
Becky & Louise have placed me in my last two permanent positions in London, at Fishburn Hedges and more recently, Blue Rubicon.
The girls listen to exactly what you’re looking for and provide the guidance and support to get the exact type of job that you’re after. It’s rare to find an agency that genuinely listens to what you want and has your best interests at heart.
