Meet the Team
Kate Taylor - Director
As Director and Co-Founder of KB Recruitment SW Ltd Kate has over 15 years’ experience in the recruitment industry. Originally a general recruiter Kate quickly realised that her skills would be best employed in the specialist recruitment market where she could focus on building longstanding trusted relationships with her clients and candidates. Kate has specialised in the property and conveyancing sectors in the South & South West for over 11 years and operates more like an HR function for her clients, and a career counsellor for her candidates, ensuring she is best placed to match excellent candidates with valued clients.
In her early career Kate gained experience in customers’ services, administration, practice management, and area sales management enabling her to identify the key skills required for the vacancies she is recruiting for.
A high energy lady, Kate manages to squeeze time out of her busy schedule to stand on street corners collecting for charity, help out with the Mid Devon Shows (directing anything from goats to bulls into the livestock arena), balloon festivals, Iron Man charity competitions and also donates her time to giving careers advice at local colleges. Kate is an active Rotarian and former Chair of the local Rotary Community Committee.
Brian Taylor - Director
As a Director and Co-Founder of KB Recruitment SW Ltd Brian has over 10 years’ experience of effectively recruiting for the financial services sector.
After graduating from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology with a science degree he successfully worked for over twenty years in the water industry, initially joining as a chemist, and through a series of promotions, finally leaving from a senior management position.
On leaving the water industry Brian took the opportunity for a complete career change to set up KB Recruitment SW Ltd with wife and Co-Director Kate.
Born and bred in the South West and having travelled extensively throughout the world and lived in both Malta and Sri Lanka, Brian enjoys helping wife Kate with Rotary functions and in his spare time, as a member of the British Beekeepers Association gets a real ‘buzz’ from his hobby of beekeeping.
