Kerry Brown

Associate Director - Permanent Recruitment Division

I started my career within the health and social care sector as a Care Co-ordinator in an assessment centre for adults and children with learning disabilities.  The role appealed to me as I have a brother in-law with Downs Syndrome and was keen to learn more about the challenges faced by people with learning disabilities.  I enjoyed engaging with the clients, and felt passionate about making a difference to people’s lives, but I also wanted to work in a faster paced environment which led me towards a career in recruitment. 

My first recruitment role was as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant in a Legal recruitment Company, which I did for over a year, and although I enjoyed the role, I missed working in the health & social care sector.  In 2004 I took a change of direction and took a job as a specialist care Recruitment Consultant, recruiting for Homelessness, Drug and Alcohol and Domestic Violence services.  This was a role I felt would combine my 2 passions, recruitment and the health & social care sector.

Throughout my time in this role I recruited a wide range of care professionals including Social Workers, Allied Health Professionals, Care Assistants, Support Workers, Registered Managers and most recently Executive level roles. I have been involved in the implementation and management of 2 master vendor contracts for large National Health & Social Care providers, both supplying 1000 hours of temp support staff on a weekly basis. 

I love my job and can’t see myself doing anything else.  There is nothing better than finding the right person for a role and making my clients life easier, then calling a candidate to offer them their dream job and they are over the moon.  All this whilst ultimately improving the life of someone who is vulnerable, it really is the best job in the world.

I have now moved to Vetro to specialise in permanent recruitment for Support Workers, Managers and Senior level vacancies.

Testimonials

Where do I start as it has been a long and excellent recruitment journey with Kerry Brown at Vetro. I signed up with Vetro best part of 10 months ago when I first started to look for alternative employment. Kerry listened to what I was looking for and did not canvas the care sector with my CV looking for a role which unfortunately is something I have experienced in the past. She spent the time researching both the roles and the company prior to contacting me or sending my CV. I have had a collaborative working partnership with Kerry throughout the entire recruitment process. Kerry also had my best interests in the forefront and even when I turned down a role following an interview, she fully understood my reasoning and continue with the job search for me. Kerry is very proactive, supportive and with me, I think it is very fair to say she is patient! Kerry's was brilliant in keeping in me informed and often checked in with me just to see how I was and it was genuinely evident that it is equally important to her that she found me the right job. There was never any pressure to accept a role or attend an interview if I felt it was not a good fit for me. Kerry not only found me a job but it is also with my number once choice of employers/business in the care sector. I would highly recommend Kerry at Vetro........ I am one happy client who is appreciative of all her hard work.

Quality Manager

I want to take this opportunity to say Thank You.

 

My experiences of working with recruitment agencies have not always been positive, however, Kerry Brown and Vetro are a clear exception.

 

Following a decision I made to leave a children's home management position, it has felt like Kerry has made it her mission to ensure I found the position which was correct for me. Kerry communicated with me effectively every day on more than one occasion and she also provided assurances and support in the face of some unpredicted adversity. Kerry has been the liaison between employers and is clear her professionals network reaches far around the UK. Kerry is a strong professional in her field and I am impressed at her motivation to achieve positive results.

 

To summarise, the whole service experience with Vetro, led by Kerry has been outstanding and I would have no hesitation in recommending Kerry to any future customers. A big Thank You for your support and drive leading to a successful placement for me.

Head of Care - School for Children With Complex Needs

From day one kerry stayed in contacted and made sure I found the right job. 

Kerry was second to none from day one and is a credit to vetro recruitment agency.

I would 100% recommend this agency and especially kerry, she made me feel relaxed before interviews and always made sure I was happy with situations.

Kerry still remains in touch and this is great to have a personal touch and knowing if I have any issues she is only a phone call away. 

 

I personally can't thank kerry enough for all her hard work to secure myself the job. 

Children's Residential Manager

My experience with Kerry and Vetro Recruitment from the beginning has been nothing but fantastic. Kerry has real knowledge of the sector that I work in and brought that to bear to find me the role I was looking for in an organisation I am excited about. Kerry’s communication and advice has been great throughout and I will surely be using Vetro in future.

Children's Registered Manager

Last year I began to feel that I was getting too complacent within my 'previous role'. Knowing this, and feeling that I was not as effective as what I once used to be, I took to my 'Linkedin' account, with a view to maximising my profile; this was my attempt to be headhunted. I received a message from Vetro's 'Kerry Brown', which began our working relationship. Kerry secured me the most amazing job, which I have only recently commenced. Kerry's drive and passion for her role are admirable. A very experienced influencer, with an amazing outlook on life, and a unique ability to prompt and strive for the best outcome for others. I can honestly say that without Kerry and her enthusiastic and honest approach that I may have reconsidered. Vetro, you must be proud to have such an asset as an employee. Thanks to all at Vetro, my future is looking extremely progressive!
