What do                      do?
Property Development
Recruitment Businesses
The Keystone group has actively invested in property since 1958. This has significantly grown the company’s asset value during this time. Our general enthusiasm centres round commercial property investments inclusive of holiday parks, licensed premises and hotels.

We are interested in working with any individuals who would also like to own their own property portfolio and who require financial investments to underpin their strategy. Whilst the Group has a number of units that are simply attracting a commercial rent, a particular interest of creating trading assets is very much at the forefront of our strategy.
Keystone Employment Group was founded in 1948 making it one of the forerunners of the recruitment industry. Starting in London from humble beginnings as a stationery shop, it soon became apparent that secretarial and administrative staffing opportunities would arise in the sale of capital typing equipment.

The company soon developed a strategy in London and the Home Counties and at its peak formed a 38 branch network making it one of the largest privately owned employment agencies in London.

Keystone Employment Group has since become an industry leader in online recruitment solutions and developed DirectTemping, a complete online portal for finding, hiring and managing temporary and contract workers. 

Keystone Employment Group's TalentBank  solution has become the industry leader in the higher education sector for providing universities and other institutions with a one-stop-shop solution for both student employability and managing casual workers in the organisation. Talent Bank comprises a full online suite of worker profiles, hiring, worker search, timesheets, compliance and highly customisable functions for managing and reporting on worker activity.

Keystone Employment Group holds ISO9001 Quality Management Certification, ISO14001 Environmental Management Certification, is an accredited Investors In People organisation, members of the National Association of Student Employability Services and are members of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation.

The Keystone Group has a long history pioneering new industries and opportunities. As such, we are actively interested in all types of UK based concepts and businesses. Whilst we cannot undertake all of the opportunities that are presented to us, we are happy to cast an eye over everything and provide for where necessary.
