For over 30 years, CK Group has been working with businesses across a range of innovative industries including chemicals, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, engineering and medical affairs.
Our tailored recruitment services have enabled us to support businesses of all sizes from leading multi-national companies to incubator start-ups, and here’s what they have to say about us…
“The staff at CK have done an excellent job finding appropriate candidates for my company. For the first hire, they sent a single resume that was perfect and led directly to a hire. They also helped us navigate some complications with the final terms of the agreement. They have helped us find very appropriate candidates for a wide range of roles.
In addition to high quality candidates, their communication has been excellent. There are regular updates on the search process and they are always responsive when a phone call is needed. This is a very professional group that you will enjoy working with.” – Head of Development, Next-generation industrial biotech (Massachusetts, USA)
“As the Clinical Training Lead at NWEH I have been responsible for recruiting Research Nurses to join our growing clinical team, and have been working with CK Group as our sole agency provider since October 2021.
I have worked closely with CK’s specialist recruitment consultants to identify highly skilled and appropriate nurse to achieve this growth. They have provided CVs for potential nurses for me to review and we have successfully offered and filled 6 vacant positions.
Communication has been managed very well, with structured and focused weekly meetings to discuss recruitment requirements, status, areas for concern and actions to be taken.
CK have provided a professional supportive service and I have a great working relationship with their nurse recruitment team.” – Clinical Training Lead, NorthWest EHealth
“CK Group has always provided an excellent standard of candidate who have always fitted into Air Liquide very quickly. Their selection process has allowed us to focus on choosing the right individual from a more ‘role specific’ group of candidates” – HR Coordinator, Air Liquide
“The best agency I have worked with so far when trying to fill scientific roles for my organisation. I normally work with three agencies at the same time and CK Group always provides the majority of the candidates. Most of the roles end up being filled by candidates sent by CK. Highly recommend.” – HR Coordinator, Aesica Pharmaceuticals
“We have used the team at CK Group for a number of years now, and they offer a refreshing approach to our engineering and technical recruitment. They take the time to understand our different business divisions and their specific needs across the different sites we have, both in the UK & Europe.
Thanks to the professionalism shown by the team at CK, the recruitment process has proven to be successful and we have taken on some great engineers over the last few years. I am confident that CK can help should I have any permanent or temporary requirements in the future. I would also definitely recommend CK Group to any organisation looking to recruit engineers for their business.” – Operations Manager, Global diagnostics company
“After struggling to find a couple of key positions with other providers we switched to using CK Group with almost instant effect. Great communication, very personable team and key contact. Delighted with our three new staff who are a great fit, both professionally and personality-wise. Highly recommended group of recruiters to work with.” – COO, Vaccitech
“Our experience with CK was very good. Recruitment Manager Naynesh Mistry was friendly and efficient to deal with, and quickly helped us connect to the right candidate to support the growth of our business going forward. We will use CK again when recruiting for our next position.” – Technical Director, Biotechnology company
“I’ve worked with CK on a couple of roles I’ve had that require specialist skills, and the team always work hard to find the right type of candidate. Many agencies ‘cast a net’ and send in lots of candidates with some of the skills we are looking for, whereas CK will spend time searching for the correct candidates with most or all of the boxes ticked. This saves me so much time on having to trawl through CVS. Would highly recommend.” – HR Coordinator, KCC Basildon Chemicals
“CK have done an excellent job in consistently supporting me over the years in finding excellent candidates to staff my department with talented clinical operations professionals at all levels. What sets CK apart from other suppliers for me is how responsive they are to my needs and how they are able to have honest and candid conversations in order to facilitate a successful recruitment process. They always find suitable candidates and I would highly recommend them.” – Head of Clinical Operations, Biotechnology organisation
“We have had a really good service from CK Group over the last few years. The quality of the candidates has always been good and they listen to our needs and support our recruitment strategy. The staff are always ready to help with any issues, and we have always had a fast response to requests and queries.” – Analytical Area Manager, BCM Fareva
“I have worked in partnership with CK Group since 2001 to present day, both in my current and previous role. The difference with CK Group is that they listen and understand your business so that the recruitment or assignment is focused on your business and culture needs. Professional, innovative, supportive and a wonderful bonus of being friendly and fun to work with.” – Senior HR Manager, Medical device company

They have always gone the extra mile in order to deliver high standards, ensuring that they fully understand the business needs before submitting candidates. Personal interaction with consultants is always available to discuss our exact requirements which CK use in the pre-screening process. It’s safe to say that CK set the benchmark in service quality for the scientific recruitment industry.” – Brand Manager, SGS Limited
