Executive Search for Process Improvement
Candidate Testimonials
“It’s exciting when you get contact from a recruiter…. that new opportunity looms and you feel great. I’ve had many bad experiences though, some
instances where I’ve not been kept informed of what was happening and in some cases there was no match between me and my potential employer. It
just felt like I was part of a numbers game and my personal needs were not being considered. However…
I’ve recently worked with Kennardsmith Associates and found the whole experience a breath of fresh air. Honest and up front about your prospects and
whether you’re a good fit for the job. Kept informed all the way through the process without the waffle. I felt that I was being put forward for something
that was a great opportunity and I had a genuine chance or that right from the start it was not for me and I needn’t waste my time.
I’m self employed now, but should I be searching for a job in the future, I’d certainly use the services of Kennardsmith Associates and because I know
candidates are matched to employees needs and the job roles, I’m sure I’ll be using their services should I need to recruit for my business” Director -

“I would not hesitate in recommending Kennardsmith Associates to any business looking for high calibre staff or any candidate looking to find a new

communication throughout our relationship.  From my first conversation with Kennardsmith Associates I have felt assured that they will find me the
right job, as they have taken their time to get to know me as an individual and not just my CV”. Lean Six Sigma MBB - General Electric (GE Money)

“I have known Fiona from Kennardsmith Associates since late 2007 when they approached me for a position with Unipart Lean Expert Practice.  I have
found them to be highly professional throughout my association with them and I have no hesitation in providing a reference.  Kennardsmith Associates
have the ability to develop strong relationships and this allows them to understand deeply the needs of both client and candidate.  This is perhaps a
cliché in the world of recruitment, but having not-inconsiderable experience in this field, I believe that they have taken this to a level that sets the
standard by which others should operate.  In seeking to understand these needs, Kennardsmith Associates have a strong attention to detail combined
with a sense of humour that makes dealing with them a pleasure. They are prepared to go the “extra-mile,” and again I speak from experience in their
involvement in placing me in my current role.
The high standard that I have experienced in my dealings has extended to the entire team.  They are reliable, deeply understanding, proactive, work
well as a team and together they use these skills and attributes to make Kennardsmith Associates a pleasure to work with”.   Head of Financial
Services – Unipart Lean Expert practice 
“I worked with Fiona at Kennardsmith Associates whilst securing my current role with BMGi. I have worked with many recruitment specialists over the
years and can say that I was remarkably impressed with Fiona's level of professionalism throughout the entire process. Fiona demonstrates a deep
understanding of her market sector which enables her to fully appreciate what is important for the client. In return, this enabled Fiona to find a role
ideally matched to my experience and provided me with a great career move. I found the entire recruitment process with Fiona to be incredibly well
managed and I am looking forward to working with her to help with my recruitment needs in the future. I know that I can rely on her to understand not
only the technical, but personal aspects that make the real difference when making the right hire.” Director UK and Nordics – BMGi Europe
