Matthew Ord

Director of Business Development

Dedicated and determined, Matthew is absolutely focused on the task in hand, but with a laid-back affability that gives clients confidence that they will get the best results.

A 100%, dyed-in-the-wool “people person”, Matthew has built a vast portfolio of business contacts and is as adept at one on one interviews as he is addressing an auditorium of hundreds.

In previous roles he helped hundreds of firms access lucrative overseas export markets, provided business development guidance and has now turned his focus on recruitment.

Matthew works hard at making hard work look easy and is the go-to guy for hundreds of businesses.

His golfing skills leave a lot to be desired, but his recruitment abilities are championship standard.

Gemma Holmes

Head of Client Services

Agile, adaptable and accessible - Gemma has built a reputation on delivery of excellence.

With over 15 years of recruitment experience, her contacts range from family firms to global brands, but whatever the scale of the task, Gemma’s high-standards will not slip.

Never flustered, she thinks fast and acts fast – delivering positive results at supersonic speeds.

Like Matthew, recruitment is not a job for Gemma, it’s a passion. Whether you are looking for the perfect position or seeking the ideal employee, she will not stop until the job is complete.

As a distant relative of the pioneering engineer George Stephenson, Gemma will make sure that your recruitment issue remains on time, on track and is never derailed.

Helen Barnett

Candidate Consultant

A great communicator with undoubted people skills, Helen is the friendly face of KMS Partners, looking after candidates and making sure they are updated with any progress relating to their application.

With a vast armoury of admin and customer service skills, Helen ensures candidates are armed with all the information required to complete temporary assignments and roles.

She is the glue that holds the team together – providing an information conduit between Matthew, Gemma and Melissa.

With a lifetime ambition to join the circus, Helen is a trained fire-eater, although more often than not prefers a salad for lunch.

Kathryn Alton

Office Manager

The silent dynamo who makes sure the KMS clock continues to tick.

Boasting vast admin experience, she is the team organiser – working hard to ensure all candidates are compliant with the roles they are interested in and that client businesses have the essential legal protection required.

Crossing Is, dotting Ts and paying wages, Kathryn is an organiser with a calm persona and quiet efficiency that helps keep the team’s larger-than-life personalities in check.

A fan of the great outdoors, she is the office equivalent of Bear Grylls, meaning she can deal with just about anything.
