A partnership approach.
Helping to implement critical projects, at pace.
Supporting digital transformation
Managing digital programmes requires specialist knowledge, experience and resources that many IT departments simply don’t have. Even if they do, complex projects are time-consuming; in-house teams have other priorities.
Keystream’s Managed Services model can provide the solution. Strategic, flexible, fast, advanced, secure and reliable, a Managed Service can drive competitive advantage for organisations implementing transformation programmes.
Innovate & accelerate
Led by CIO Angus Walker, Keystream’s Managed Services is an outcome based flexible delivery model capable of driving strategic change.
We manage the project, end to end, through a well-defined process, maximising efficiency and minimising risk.

- Clear vision of success criteria and roadmap to get there
- A bench of hundreds of Consultants available to deploy
- Transparent, controlled, competitive costs
- Best practice documentation, standards and governance

Project roadmap of success
We start with you.
What are your business goals and desired outcomes? What do your customers want? What’s your strategy and budget? Who are the key stakeholders? What does success look like?
Then, we create a roadmap taking a blended approach, looking at the whole IT mix – internal capabilities, suppliers and outsource solutions.
Accelerated, deep understanding through meetings, observation, questioning. We get under the skin of your business.
Using this knowledge, we define what success looks like, and how we get there. We articulate a clear, shared vision of the goals.
A robust, detailed delivery plan with key milestones, timeframes, dependencies. We work to a tried and tested process.
Engagement & resourcing
Deployment of expert consultants with constant communication between stakeholders. Collaborative engagment, no working in silos.
Testing & delivery
Rigorous checks ensure adherence to data compliance, security and development standards. We ensure our work stands up to scrutiny.
Full engagement with users across the business, training and support at all levels. We hand-over the project, but the partnership continues.
What our partners say…
Keystream have embraced the challenges that occur within an ever-changing NHS environment, and have been flexible in their approach when accommodating diverse requirements. Keystream consultants have been professional at all times, and I would have no hesitation in recommending Keystream to any organisation.
Reputation is fundamental when delivering projects. Supplying reliable resources with the correct skill sets is an integral element in maintaining that reputation. Keystream have a proven track record every time I have needed a resource to assist in my projects.
NWL Collaboration of CSUs
Keystream help make the whole end to end process of recruitment, ongoing service delivery, invoicing and payment flow easy. Very flexible, they will tailor their processes to work best with your organisation. They are professional, timely, supply excellent candidates, are easily contactable and the excellent customer care continues post-placement.
IT Programme Manager
Croydon Health Services NHS Trust
Having worked with Keystream as a client and a contractor I have found them to be at the top of the recruitment game. They are great at dealing with difficult scenarios and always ready with a solution. I would highly recommend them to contractors and clients alike.
Head of Intelligence & Analytics
Surrey & Borders Partnership NHS Trust
I’ve used Keystream for over 5 years, and every interaction I’ve had has been positive. They are really good at understanding what I need and consistently provide a good selection of candidates. The treatment of my candidates is also a measure of whether I continue to engage with a recruitment agency - and Keystream treats them impeccably.
I have worked with many recruiters over the years. Most just treat you like a number. With Keystream you get a sense of mutual respect, they look out for your interests above and beyond the norm. They regularly keep in touch and proactively present new opportunities when I’m seeking them. They remain my preferred agent.
IT Project Manager
Contractor for Keystream
Keystream are not only great to work with, but also know the NHS really well. They knew I would be a good fit for the role and I am really glad to be here! They care about the candidates as well as the hiring organisation. There is genuinely no problem too big and they always come back with answers to questions really quickly.
Richard impressed with his genuine passion and eagerness to understand the company and the role. His approach to sourcing and introducing candidates was to forward only the best after his extensive preliminary work. We were able to sit down with the top 5 candidates for each position and make hiring decisions within 2 weeks.
Co-Founder & CEO
Fitness tech start-up
I have worked with Keystream for some years now and I can genuinely say they have become the only supplier I like to use. Not only do they understand the more niche, technical aspects of the roles I require, but they have always provided outstanding candidates whom they know well.
Head of Performance, Data & Analytics
I have been able to work on some very good interim opportunities with good clients thanks to Keystream. My relationship with my Recruitment Consultant has always been candid and productive and would recommend this agency to job seekers.
Large UK Charity
We had a surge in demand due to Covid and had 44 roles that urgently needed to be filled. I chose Keystream as a partner because of their framework status, specialist experience and contractor network. Keystream was very quick to find candidates. They asked the right questions at the right time, were very responsive and the contractors were well looked after.
Head of Office - IT
Central Government organisation
The Recruitment Consultant sent three profiles specifically targeted for the project and top notch in their relevant skills and experience, making me feel like I had a genuine choice to make between three high calibre individuals. The constant liaison allowed me to feel informed and reassured about the progress and consultancy.
One thing that was very important for me was having one point of contact. I had taken on additional responsibilities at an extremely busy time and didn’t have time to chase recruiters or deal with several people – it needed to be quick and efficient. Beth was tremendous, the only person I ever dealt with, and was absolutely fabulous for us.
Head of Business Unit
Central Government body
I've had the great fortune to have worked with Karima on more than one occasion - on both sides of the contractor/client fence. I have always found her to be straightforward, reliable (she answers her 'phone, returns calls, replies to messages and keeps in touch on an ad-hoc basis!) and a friendly person to work with. I'd be more than happy to work with her again and can highly recommend her.
Digital & Business Transformation Specialist
My experience with Keystream and my Consultant was really positive. He was responsive, quick and just got into the job. It was clearly a thorough process, and his sound understanding of the sector and what I wanted were, I would say, crucial to him finding me a great candidate.
I first came across KeyStream a couple of years ago as a candidate. From the outset, my Consultant understood my capabilities, experience and aspirations. His dedication went beyond my usual experience of recruitment. After that first positive experience, I have engaged with Keystream as a client to bring high calibre talent into my workplaces.
Head of IT
Keystream have been our sole supplier of IT staff since 2016 and have demonstrated comprehensive market knowledge and an excellent candidate network from the outset. They’ve been responsible for some key management appointments and have met every requirement we’ve given them. I look forward to working with them for many years to come.
Head of HR
Keystream have been fantastic in supporting InHealth with our IT recruitment. The team works hard with our hiring managers to fill difficult roles with the right candidates. I’m very pleased with their service and will continue working with them on our future roles.
Talent Acquisition Manager
I had the pleasure of working with Keystream over the past few months recruiting for a medical sales role within our organisation. From our first conversation about the role right through to our new team members first day, my Consultant had it covered, going above and beyond to assist. I look forward to working with Keystream again in the future.
Country Manager, UK
My Keystream contact was thoroughly professional, diligent and honest throughout the recruitment process. Her knowledge of the healthcare industry and the MedTech field in particular, was very impressive. Having been contacted by a large number of recruiters in the past, I can confidently say Keystream stands out from the rest.
Technical Service & Application Specialist
I first met Natalie when she placed me as a candidate, then had the pleasure of engaging with her to recruit for various roles within my team and the wider organisation. Natalie's extensive network ensured she put forward quality candidates that we could take forward into the selection process and, most of the time, hire.
Head of Commercial Excellence
Medical Manufacturing Company
I have worked with numerous recruiters in the past and I can honestly say that Natalie is NOT your average consultant. She made me feel like I was not just another number by finding exactly what I wanted, rather than simply offering me what was available. She is transparent, professional and helpful. I highly recommend working with her.
Pharmaceutical and Medical Devices Manufacturer
Natalie was great to work with, she was very professional, she understood our vision and was instrumental in helping us launch into a new market. She has a great understanding of the market and what’s required to successfully grow and found us an incredible team of sales executives who align with our company values and expectations.
Head of Group Finance
Medical Devices Manufacturing Company
Working at Keystream has been an incredible experience, both socially and for my career. Since joining in 2014, I've felt that my career has been nurtured and I've continually progressed, becoming a specialist in this industry.
Keystream is my first full time job, and I know that It’s not easy to step in to such a fast-paced environment with no real experience, but I felt at home from day one and I believe in the company I work for. Some people search for that for years!
Associate Recruitment Consultant
The team here is very supportive and helpful. Whilst we work on individual roles and commission, there is a great sense of collaboration and shared knowledge; we help each other out on requirements and use our experience to champion others.
The Keystream culture is warm, supporting and collaborative. Hard work and individual successes are well rewarded, and there's a feeling of camaraderie and support between teams as well as on individual desks.
We genuinely work as a close-knit family, and this environment, combined with our company values, has led to the success we’ve experienced so far… I am so glad I made the decision to join Keystream all those years ago!
The Operations teams are fully included, and I feel as valued and important as the recruitment desks. We get the opportunity to qualify for incentives, socials are inclusive and we are well respected across the business.
My apprenticeship with Keystream has been beyond my expectations. Working directly with the Finance Manager, I'm learning all the time and feel like I've progressed so much. I've had fantastic support with my studying, and have won the MVP award. I'm going on to start a permanent job, and couldn't be happier.
