What Our Candidates Say

Met Sam from Appetite4Recruitment while I was looking for a new position. He was professional and personable and helped me find an amazing new role with Beach House Hove. Would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to take the next step in their career.

Rogerio Da Silva, General Manager

From my very first conversation with Kerry, she made me feel relaxed and the conversation felt less like the usual chat with a recruiter, but more like a conversation with a friend that you had known for a while.

Kerry took the time to get to know me and get a better understanding of what I was looking for in my next role, there was a lot of attention paid to the aspects of my role that I love. I was put forward for a role at and Kerry ensured that she talked me through the interview process and prepped me for each interview, I would definitely say it was the most calm set of interviews I have ever had!

At every stage of the interview process she was empathetic and proactive. She was able to provide coaching and guidance to ensure I was bringing my best to each stage. The appointment was smooth and fulfilled my needs and desire for my next role.

I would recommend Kerry in a heartbeat; she was not only my recruitment consultant, but she has very quickly become a friend who is always looking out for me. We have regular check in’s and discussions about what is going on in the industry.

Olajide Junior Alabi

Appetite 4 Recruitment was incredibly helpful in finding me a new job opportunity. Kerry in particular was great! I felt that she really understood what I was looking for. She didn’t just put me forward for any job, but she took time to get to know me so that she could promote me for the job that suited me best.

I wouldn’t think twice at contacting them again if it was ever needed.

Giulia Pistone

I had an incredible and personable experience with Appetite 4 Recruitment, and most importantly, directly with Kerry.  I was treated as an individual where I was asked questions which made me feel proud of my achievements, and Kerry deep-dived to understand me as a person.  Not to forget the laughs we had along the way and I felt as if I had made a great friend, as opposed to a stringent corporate recruitment process.  Kerry kept me positive through what can only be described as a difficult time.  Seamless communication, with incredible understanding of which company/role I would be suited for.  Within 1 week, from my first chat with Kerry I landed my new role! A recruitment experience I will never forget, setting the highest standards within the industry.

Rachel Thomson

As a chef I have known Jo for over 8 years, she has helped me in both temporary and full time roles through small independent and large group placements during this time, to date 3 full time roles and 1 temporary position. Her knowledge of her clients and their requirements have always provided her with the insight to choose the right role for me and deliver 3 successful full time offers and placements over the 8 years. I will first and foremost seek the advice and support of Jo for any future career moves.

Owen Jones
