“I cannot recommend Kevin Hosier highly enough, having worked with him for the last few years. As well as having in-depth knowledge of the conferences & exhibition worlds – & the key roles & functions that that entails he is no doubt the best-connected recruitment professional. With contacts ranging across Europe, Asia & the US we have had lots of success in placing new talent through him. Kevin goes beyond being an agent to being a true recruitment partner who can confidently screen candidates & who ads valuable input & advice across the entire recruitment process. To top it all off he’s a really nice, decent guy! I just can’t recommend him highly enough.
Elvira Asare-Hunte – Director, Southbank/Crop World Global – formerly Conference Director at UBM Live

“I had the pleasure of speaking with Katharine when I needed someone who really understood where I was at that time. Unlike other recruiters I have encountered, Katharine really took the time to understand what I needed, why I needed it and what was important to me. She would never push roles onto me. She always explained the role and why she felt it was a good fit but always listened and made sure I was comfortable before proceeding with submitting my CV. I would happily use Katharine again and recommend her & GCN Talent to anyone looking for the right move”
Antoine Marsden, Business Development Director

“Katharine is a fearless recruiter who very quickly got to grips with the complexities of our market place and the specific requirements of the role we were looking to fill. She left no stone unturned in her search for the perfect candidate and I relied on her to save me time by thoroughly screening all potential interviewees before she referred them to me. Her results have been great and we’re really happy with the senior level people she has helped bring into our business”
Sally Green, Editorial and Network Director, The Hive

“I have loved and enjoyed working with Katharine over the years. Not only she is one of the most resilient headhunters I have met in my career but also an incredible pleasure to work with from a personality point of view. She is one of those individuals that will not stop until she gets what you are looking for, really a great recruitment partner to have for any job you may require to hire for. In summary, quality work, speed and on time delivery pair up just with someone so likeable as she is. I recommend very highly!”
Gabriela Cogorno – formerly Group Head of Marketing at WBR.

“Kevin and the team at GCN talent are always one of the ‘must calls’ when recruiting.  The reason I like to work with them, is that they take time to get to know our needs and only put forward well researched and briefed candidates which has led to a number of appointments.  I am happy to highly recommend them.”
Alex Grose – Managing Director, Mining Indaba/Euromoney plc)

“Katharine is incredibly helpful, personable and enthusiastic – she was the driving force behind turning an opportunity into a career. I am very grateful for the time and effort she put in to securing the role for me, and highly recommend her.”
Steven Craig – Conference Director at WBR

“Kevin has been a key player in supporting us finding top quality candidates for our events team. He always takes the time to understand our requirement and then only puts forward relevant people.”
Suzy Mayhew – Director of Events, Campden Wealth

“Katharine and I had been liaising for a number of years before she recently placed me at CloserStill. The opportunities presented were always very interesting and it was clear that Katharine had in depth knowledge not only with the recruiting company but similarly of my changing needs! She is consistently very personable and a pleasure to work with as well as being very insightful and enthusiastic about who she works with. I always felt confident that she would represent me well. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Katharine again at all!”
Fabienne O’Neill – Director, Cuckooz

“I am very happy to recommend Kevin who has successfully sourced good candidates for me over many years.   He always questions a brief carefully to get a good understanding of what’s required for a given role.  He’s always happy to take on board feedback to adapt a search if necessary.  As a result he always sends me through a high calibre of candidates.”
Claire Tulloch, Content Director, Ascential Events
