Pat Keogh

Managing Director - Group

I am one of the founders and Managing Director of the Pro-Recruitment Group which was formed in 2007. As well as running the business I also still recruit at Partner level and team moves for a small number of clients.

I have an extensive network in the tax market both in practice and in-house having recruited for this specialism for over 20 years. 

I worked with the legal firm Fladgate Fielder before joining KPMG in their tax department. After several years of practising tax, I decided to join the world of recruitment where I joined a large national recruitment firm. It was then in 2007 that I founded the Pro-Recruitment Group.

Outside of work I am an avid traveller and being half-Thai I have a real passion for the Far East. I am also a keen snowboarder, hockey player at Barnes Hockey Club, Chelsea FC supporter and dad to a beautiful boxer dog called Tess (second only to my wife…just. If I was not in recruitment I would own a BBQ smoke pit restaurant.

Battersea Stray Over 2018

Posted by Pat Keogh

It’s just a few hours to go before five brave Pro-Group members of staff embark on the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home's ‘Stray Over’ where we have raised over £2,500 for the privilege to stay overnight at BDACH. I say a privilege because it is, and we are very proud to partner and sponsor such a great cause. Prior to owning my 7-year-old boxer dog (Miss Tess), I would visit the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home once a month just to get a chance to donate money and in return see some wonderful dogs and cats that just want to be loved. BDACH do a wonderful job of caring for and re-homing so many cats and dogs and this is a charity so close to my heart. So close to my heart in fact that as a company we have implemented ‘pawternity’ which means if any member of staff adopts a cat or dog, they are entitled to 7 days pawternity to spend with their new furry friend whilst they get used to their new home. We have our sleeping bags ready, flasks filled and we are ready for the night, bring it on BDACH. A shout-out must go to all of those who gave generously and helped us reach our target. A special mention must also go to: QNS LinkedIn Volcanic eTax Jobs Totally Legal Seaforth Land Mark Bailey - Who was so kind as to shave my head for me Pat Keogh Managing Director Pro-Recruitment Group.


5 Reasons To Apply To A Job Via A Recruitment Agency

Posted by Pat Keogh

As a recruitment leader, I'm always asked what values a recruitment agency can add to the hiring process, compared to applying to a role directly with an organisation. The teams here at Pro pride themselves on covering any gray areas between clients and candidates so that they can best match the best candidates with the best organisations, making the whole recruitment process a lot more efficient. Here are my five key benefits of applying via a recruitment agency.
