You candidates will become our priority

Become a partner with an industry expert

We have been working alongside recruitment agencies and helping their candidates with contracting since 1998. Our highly trained experts have an extensive knowledge of the contracting industry and are ready to provide your recruitment agency with the exceptional levels of support you expect, as well as providing your candidates with a service that is second to none.

When you partner with Churchill Knight, you will be assigned a dedicated Account Manager. This means that you will have your own point of contact that will help ensure your questions are answered quickly and efficiently. Your Account Manager will be easy to get hold of on the telephone and by email. They will also be delighted to pop into your office for a catch up when you require one.

As a partner of Churchill Knight, you will have access to our ‘Recruiter Guide’ series – a collection of informative guides exclusively designed for our recruitment agency partners. These guides will bring you the latest industry news and important updates to legislation that will affect your recruitment agency.

Churchill Knight is proud to be accredited by Professional Passport, APSCo and TEAM, and we regularly undergo audits to ensure the services we offer are always to a premier standard.

We understand that your candidates are your priority and when you partner with Churchill Knight, they become our priority too.
