  • Kensington have consistently stood out above the crowd as understanding the needs of Setco and delivering the correct candidates for the role. Where as many recruitment agencies work purely over the telephone, Kensington always follow the personal face to face approach, and the benefits of this are apparent. For our most recent appointment, we signed a contract to employ the candidate just 9 days after first contacting Kensington about the role, and the employee is now delivering excellent results for the company.
