"When our new business decided it was time for us to recruit our first kitchen designer, we were very fortunate to know that Oval Deene would not let us down. For many years now, I have had the pleasure of doing business with Gemma Creasey, who is a terrific communicator, and a very well connected operator within the KBB industry. She knows this market ever so well, and she has successfully filled literally dozens of vacancies for me. Her admirable decision to concentrate her efforts on creating a business that specifically specialises in KBB, came as no surprise to me.


If you have a KBB related vacancy, or you are simply seeking a change yourself, then I would highly recommend you look no further, and contact Gemma at Oval Deene."

"Gemma was so very helpful in finding the perfect job. I told her what I was looking for in a company/position and what definitely was not looking and she found exactly the company and position that was perfectly suited for me. Then rather than just leave me to it from there, she made sure the 4 weeks notice period I had to work out was stress free and an easy transition and made it very clear she was always hand to talk if need be.


So professional and highly recommended."
