Collins King are the go to recruiters for both FOH & BOH roles. Their industry knowledge is second to none – they are part of the fabric of the London hospitality scene.

Martin Williams CEO & Founder, M Restaurants

We have worked with Gary and Collins King for over ten years and have had some simply wonderful recruits. Gary is tenacious, focused and lateral and has run that ‘extra mile’ to find us the right candidates. No one in London knows the market like Gary and no one is as connected and I would have no hesitation in recommending that you talk to both Gary and his team.

Greg Lawson CEO , Smart Group

We have worked with Gary King & his team at Collins King & Associates for 15 over years.  In that time, they have successfully placed a number of managers & chefs within our business.  Both Martyn Smith & Ruth Ray understand what we need from a cultural perspective and source the right profile candidates for many of our contracts.  Collins King are honest, upfront and a pleasure to do business with.
