All about us....

Want to find out more about us? Have a read below....

We are renowned for being one of the leading and most trusted Search consultancies and we act as an Advisor to both National and Local House Builders, Land Promoters and PRS companies across the UK.   Our expertise cover all disciplines – land and development, planning, commercial, construction, technical, sales and finance – from Graduate to Board level.  

We are not just a recruitment agency (but are very proud to be one) – when we partner with a client we become part of their business, we take time to understand them, their values and goals as well as their people. We act as a true consultancy, providing current market information, trends and salary and benchmarking advice in order to enable them to attract the very best people into their business.  

Unlike many of our competitors, we offer Search and Selection at all levels – at the height of the market this is actually needed more at a middle management level then it is at a Senior level due to the serious skills shortage affecting the industry.  

KHA offer a service tailored to you, dependent upon your needs and the current market. We have (we believe!) an exceptional reputation which allows us to target and identify the best people for our clients and are often called upon to trouble shoot where other consultancies have failed.
When we say individuals we mean those of you looking for a new challenge. We aren’t a fan of the word ‘candidate’ – this implies you are the same as every other ‘candidate’ when in fact you are an individual with personal goals, dreams and character.  

As well as working pro-actively on behalf of our clients we do the same for those looking for the next step in their career. We have contacts at the most Senior of levels with many of the House Builders, both National and Private, as well as with Land Promoters.  We work closely with the CEOs, Chairman and Managing Directors to bring them great people - people just like you.   

We work in the strictest of confidence, we understand how small the industry is and we are not here to push pieces of paper or ruin someone’s reputation and career. As you may have gathered, our reputation is everything to us, those that know us will tell you we will not ‘sell’ a position to you - we are here to listen, to advise and assist you in the next step of your career. We understand that this is not just ‘a job’ – this affects all areas of your life and we take our role in this very seriously.  

We are hugely passionate about what we do, we are not another Corporate recruiter and we don’t have a team of 20 reading from a script – our aim is to give a personal and expert service.  

We like to get to know those we work with, we work hard at building long term relationships and can promise straight talking advice, expert knowledge of the industry, the utmost confidentiality and an extra helping of personality!

“We had appointed our usual recruitment company to undertake a search process for us which regrettably had not put forward suitable candidates. By coincidence, Kathryn had emailed me on a separate matter and after a flurry of email exchanges presented us with an excellent choice of candidates.    I have no hesitation in recommending Kathryn Hayter as her skills, dedication and passion shine through. It was very enjoyable working together and I look forward to doing so again in the near future.”
