It’s rare to meet a recruiter who truly cares to understand how your work experience and skills translate into the best career opportunities for you.

At every stage of my job search she was generous with her time, professional and very supportive. She is also personable and fun to work with.

Debbie stands out from the crowd when it comes to Executive Search ! Debbie recently introduced me to Walgreens Boots Alliance and helped me secure my current role with them.

Senior Product Safety Manager, Global Brands at Walgreens Boots Alliance

 "Carolyn was the recruitment executive that contacted me for the new role that I will be starting in July. I have been working for a Blue Chip FMCG company for 27 years and although I was looking for fresh challenges, I was very nervous about stepping outside of my comfort zone.

I can honestly say that because of Carolyn's reassuring and professional approach, I was confident to make that 'leap of faith'. Once I had made the decision to take the job, Carolyn was fantastic with all of the follow through activities, even responding to my late night texts with questions around contract details etc.

From my previous experience with recruitment companies, Carolyn and KEAGA are certainly Gold Standard." 

Chief Executive Officer Oxford Endovascular Limited

I met Debbie recently whilst she was interested to build a relationship with my company and I was looking to build my team. She took a keen interest in our vision and had researched suitable profiles that would match our needs. Within a few days we found a strong candidate and set up meetings eventually leading to an offer being made. Debbie has been superbly professional and responsive. I would strongly recommend spending time to discuss requirements with her to target a search for good people.
 
Senior Resourcing Manager - Executive Hires - Global Brands and Boots UK at Walgreens Boots Alliance
 
"Keaga were initially recommended by a colleague.  I was apprehensive at first as I rarely utilise agencies, and if I do, I use a Tier 1 search firm for executive positions.  However, I trusted my colleague’s opinion and engaged them on to a very difficult and technical position. 
 
Since the beginning of the assignment, Debbie and Carolyn were always friendly and demonstrated the up-most professionalism when identifying and negotiating with candidates.  They were successful in this placement and subsequently been successful in a further assignment that proved too difficult for us to find.  I would highly recommend Keaga, and have no doubts that they will become long-term partners for WBA as we continue to grow and demand highly skilled staff" 
 
Director of eHealth Marketing at Merck Serono
 
Debbie and her team are professional, experienced and hard-working. They have a good pulse on opportunities and candidates. They go out of their way to connect clients with the right candidates. I was also impressed with their timely and effective communication - including their "do-what-it-takes approach" of working over the weekend to ensure timely response.

Debbie is refreshingly sensible and prompt, nothing is ever a problem to her, merely a phone call away from a solution and startling follow up. I could write an awful lot, sprinkled with complimentary adjectives, but the upshot is, she's professional. Agreeing a plan of action with her is a pleasure not a hardship and consequently Debbie is in my list of contacts for the reason that she's extremely good at what she does.

European HR Director, Optos

“Keaga's experience in the medical device sector, their preparation, organisation, selection and recruitment process was seamless. Keaga showed total commitment, produced top quality, relative candidates, in a timely and highly cost effective manner. Keaga have been professional at all times and above all down to earth in their approach, they have been keen to work in partnership with Optos rather than making me feel like just another client.”

HR Director  - AMERASIA - Africa, Middle East, Asia and Russia, Eli Lilly

“I worked with Keaga for the first time earlier this year and was very happy with the results.  Keaga were proactive in their approach with the internal stakeholders and myself in the hiring process.  They communicated in a very timely way, through a combination of phone calls, teleconferences and e-mail, considering that the team was spread across a number of countries.  The initial market analysis came through quickly, was of a high standard, and included candidates that had not previously been seen by the experienced team in the country in question.  As questions and issues arose along the way, Keaga were proactive also in identifying these and working to clarify and address them.  We were very happy with the hire we made and they demonstrated a great mix of personal attention and a highly professional approach, which gave us a good sense of partnership. I would be happy to recommend Keaga and to use them again in a future assignment. Many thanks!”

Once one gets all the way down the interview process, all you wish for is someone to offer you the advice on whether the package is in line with the demands of the position and equally know when it's worth to hold your ground. Quite simply, Debbie is a pro in this matter! She offered solid advice, guiding me to my goal and ultimately helping both her client and my future employer towards a win:win situation.

Director Commercial Assessment - External Opportunities, Global Marketing – Takeda

 “I had the pleasure to meet Debbie and the Keaga team in 2012 when I was looking for new opportunities and new career challenges. They contacted me directly and since the first moment I spoke to her I had the feeling I was putting myself in a safe pair of hands. The approach was very professional, there was immediately clarity on what the role was and the kind of candidate they were looking for. As I have being a hiring manager myself I genuinely appreciated the right questions asked around leadership style, technical skills and personality to understand if I was able to fit the organization. What grabbed my attention was the way Debbie was pairing me with my boss-to-be; she wanted to be sure that our personalities would have mixed together in the right way. As a matter of fact, once I joined the new company, I was able to prove she was absolutely right. During the process there was a stage where I was wondering “is this the right move?” I must admit Debbie spent time in giving me the pros and the cons why this was the right step to take at that time. She followed up with me on a regular basis after each step of the interview process, giving me feedback and advice until we achieved success.

Debbie and Keaga has been by far the best recruiting agency I have been dealing with in the past 10 years. Professionalism, reliability, consistency are all attributes that characterized them. For my next professional move they will indeed be the first team I will reach out to.”

Certainly they have an understanding of the European esthetic market and have the right connections. They deliver what they promise.”

As a result, they had a solid understanding of the skills and experience we were looking for.
