What our clients and candidates say about us


"I have known Robert for many years, originally as an HR professional and now as a search consultant. He has a good knowledge of the architect/consultancy market and the issues we face. Through his thorough research process and his wide network, Robert is able to find high calibre candidates to meet our demanding requirements."
Debra Larkman - HR Director - BDP
"Our first experience of Kilpatrick was in 2001 when Robert supported our drive to improve manufacturing performance through the appointment of an Operations Director. Robert's broad experience, wide network and experienced judgment, supported by the strong research capability of his team enabled us to make a timely and effective appointment.

The success of this appointment has led to several further assignments as a partner in our recruitment activities and I have no hesitation in recommending Robert's services."
Andy Cook - Managing Director – FFEI
"It has indeed been a pleasure doing this recruitment with you. Fast, smooth and spot on candidates. I’m convinced that JT will be successful and fit well into his position and the Mawell team."
Rain Eriksoo – Business Unit Director, E- Health Systems – Mawell
"Robert has supported my recruitment needs in several areas over the past 20 years or so. In times of turbulence and change, recruitment is probably the most important thing to get right, and there are 3 aspects of Robert's work I'd like to recommend. First, his overall approach is thoroughly professional: he insists on really understanding the requirement before taking on the brief, and his sole aim is to support the recruitment requirement (ie not to expand his own role!) Second, his ability to assemble a range of suitable candidates is exceptional, and this is especially important for senior roles, where a focus on a specific sector is not always the best approach. In this context, Robert has a great sense of 'cultural fit'. Finally, his prioritisation of candidates nearly always proves to be right, so that I can now rely on his advice - helping me to speed up the process.

I unreservedly recommend Robert."
Bill Bird - Managing Director - SCS


"I have dealt with many recruiters over the course of my career and Robert is one of the best. A true professional in a sector that doesn’t always have the best reputation. During my recent change of position, Robert took time to understand my skills, career needs and the nature of the role that I was looking for. He then presented a clear picture of the opportunity and was even able to discuss my cultural fit with the company in question. Unlike many in the recruitment profession, Robert was always available for my further questions and kept me fully informed at every step of the process. I can thoroughly recommend Robert if your are considering your next career move."
Jonathon Tunstall - Sales Director UK - Mawell
"Robert led my recruitment to SCS. During the whole of the process, I found Robert to be committed to achieving the best result for his client and dedicated to moving the process along at a reasonable pace. Looking back, the experience was a good one and I would recommend Robert and his Company to anyone looking to recruit at the Executive level."
Mark Willis- Director Air Systems- SCS
"Robert helped me secure my current position. He immediately understood what I was looking for and was helpful and supportive throughout the recruitment process. Robert described the opportunity accurately and gave me sound advice and feedback."
John McLernon - Operations Manager - Uretek
"I met with Robert when he approached me for my next role. He was professional at all times, thorough and supportive, good at following up during my recruitment and afterwards. I am pleased to recommend Robert."
Varun Rohilla - Manufacturing Optimization Manager - Saint-Gobain
"I got to know Robert when he approached and introduced me to my role at Arup. He had an instinctive understanding of fit between his client, the position and my passions, values and experience. Robert managed the whole search process professionally and skilfully, always making himself available to provide clarification and support when needed."
Tom Foulkes - Marketing Director - Carter Jonas
