Salary : £45,000 - £55,000
During my career as a Quantity Surveyor over the last 12 years I can honestly say I have not come across a recruitment consultancy that prioritize the applicants needs over their own finding fees, until I met up with Kingston Barnes.
My position was a particularly difficult one at the time but KB managed to take my requirements on board and introduce me to a company that could fully accommodate them as opposed to trying to tempt me into alternative opportunities that most of us would have considered anyway.
In addition to the excellent service provided during the negotiation process KB have continued to impress with their aftercare, with regular feedback on progress and sincere willingness for the candidate to succeed within their new role (something that a lot of recruitment companies tend to forget about).
I would recommend KB to any aspiring QS that wants to improve their career.
I would like to give a huge thank you to of Kingston Barnes. She was very helpful and worked hard on finding the right position for me (two positions and two offers).
I would highly recommend her and her team if you are looking to recruit or looking for a new position. Thanks Kate Hallett. Kate Hallett

I would like to give a special thanks to Charles Orr, you have been a pleasure to contact, very helpful and friendly. Thank you for your encouraging words and support from my application to interview and after to see how I’m getting on, I will never forget this!
From our first dealings you always listened to my requirements and kept in contact on a regular basis which made me secure in the knowledge that you were acting on my behalf as a person and not a number.
James upholds the professional approach at Kingston Barnes that in my view gives this company one of the best reputations within the region for construction recruitment.
James is professional and efficient, yet takes the time to give you a personal and friendly service. He is highly regarded in the recruitment industry both by the people he has placed and the clients he has provided for.
James spent the time understanding our business needs and personnel, hence when called upon always delvers candidates who meet our needs and fit perfectly into our company.
James will always go that extra mile and put 110% effort into filling even sometimes the most difficult position with little or no time available.
James has the necessary contacts and understanding of the type of personnel I required in my previous role of head of construction at Cowlin, Operations Manager at ISG and also as Project Director for Balfour Beatty’s £70m Temple Quay development.
James is a pleasure to work with, regularly and reliably finding me first rate employees and managers and will I’m sure remain for some years one of my preferred partners within construction recruitment.
I cannot recommend you and Kingston Barnes highly enough to anybody looking for a creditable employment agency in a sea where many are viewed with distrust.
