KFS Recruitment, a boutique recruitment agency which focuses on the specialist lending sector, has announced the appointment of Jan Gallagher as its new headhunter.

Gallagher will be dealing with vacancies on a national basis, including vacancies for business development managers, underwriters, and national account managers. Gallagher herself has undertaken many of these roles for specialist mortgages and bridging lenders throughout her 30-year career, 10 years of which were dedicated to the specialist lending area. KFS believes her real understanding of the market and the needs of the industry will bring an edge to their recruitment.

KFS director Kerry Stephens said: “I am beyond delighted that Jan has chosen to join us. I’ve known her for over a decade and she has always been one of the friendliest professionals in the specialist lending sector…. I cannot wait to introduce her to our clients.”

Gallagher said of her appointment as KFS headhunter: “I see this as a fantastic new challenge to develop myself in the recruitment world but also still work alongside the many business contacts and friends that I have gained in my many years in the specialist lending industry.

“Having this experience, I [hope] people would feel confident to reach out to me in the knowledge that I would endeavour to meet all of their recruitment needs moving forward.”

Gallagher’s expertise will cover mortgage, buy-to-let lending, and bridging space.
