  • As a client or a candidate, CK1 have always been a great resource. I don’t consider them to be any different to my own internal resourcing team, they’re that engrained in the business. They know almost everyone here, they work well as a team and have always delivered time and time again. They helped me find a new role and secured me a promotion in the time I’ve known them and I couldn’t rate them any higher. Commercial Manager – Accrington
