Real stories from real people

Testimonials and case studies from the Foundation community

A recruitment partner is only as good as the feedback from its candidates and clients.

For us, feedback and customer satisfaction are at the heart of what we do, and we place enormous value on a customer-centric approach. After all, we are real people dealing with career-changing and life-shaping opportunities. We want the same positive experience for our clients and candidates as we would expect for ourselves when recruiting or looking for a new job.

Our case studies and positive testimonials speak for themselves. We are delighted to be at the forefront of recruitment in the real estate, facilities management and placemaking sectors. We have worked with clients and candidates just like you in over 20 countries.

I have worked with Danielle Godolphin on a few roles in the last 2 years and I have found her to be an excellent consultant. Danielle really took the time to understand the brief and proactively went out to search for candidates that matched our profile. Danielle supplied some very good candidates but what impressed me most was her flexible approach when we redirected them to different vacancies and the relationships she built with them. Having spoken directly to some of the candidates, they really appreciated the time she had taken to help them with their interview, always available to offer advice and able to deliver constructive feedback. Lastly, Danielle was able to persuade our chosen candidate to pull out of another active application process to secure her to work for us, and part of that was the way she had sold the benefits of working for the Derby Centre. I am very grateful for all her help! My experience of working with Foundation is very good, which is why I’m a repeat client. I also like the new video intros on your email signatures and on social media with your consultants talking about the new positions – very clever.

Working with Danielle has honestly been an absolute pleasure. She is attentive, understanding, hard-working, insightful, and is a great communicator. She was on the journey with me from start to finish and still checks in to see how everything is going. I would undoubtedly recommend working with Danielle if you are in the process of looking for employment. She makes you feel like family and is with you every step of the way. Working with Foundation Recruitment has been a great experience. The sector knowledge they possess really helps with your search from start to finish. An amazing team, willing to go the extra mile to ensure you are as successful as possible. 10 out of 10!

Alex has been great from day one. Her assistance and communication have been second to none. Her regular updates on developments throughout a challenging period have been exceptional. The flexibility around interview arrangements and availability was invaluable throughout the process. Her personable but professional approach has been a breath of fresh air and cannot speak highly enough of her. I would gladly recommend Alex as she is a credit to Foundation Recruitment. Foundation was ideal in the posts that I was recommended for and they were always in the arena that I was seeking. The communication was always prompt as well as relevant to the situation, whether it was follow up, updates, or confirmation.

Shaunagh has excellent communication with a considered professional approach. There was good follow up and she was always available for conversations throughout the process. Foundation Recruitment has been supportive and thorough throughout the process. As a result, I have recommended Foundation Recruitment to some colleagues.

From the beginning Alex has been a great consultant to work with. Not only did she offer professional support in relation to my experience and tailoring my CV for different positions but also offered advice on taking roles that might not at first have occurred to me to look int but still related to my experience in the facilities management industry. Alongside the above, her friendly demeanor and her enthusiasm made working with her a real pleasure. Her passion for her works really shows in every conversation that you have with her. I would recommend Alex to anyone looking for work or an employer looking to find the right person to fit into their team.

Regional Facilities Manager

From the very first telephone phone-call I had with Holly Allason, I was made to feel listened to, her communication style was both personal and professional, instantly making me comfortable and able to be myself. Throughout she helped, supported and guided me through a seam-free interview experience. I have worked with other recruiters in the past none of which have given me as much attention as Holly did, and more importantly, her interest in me was genuine. Holly built trust with me effortlessly, and I can honestly say, negotiated a brilliant career package for me, more than I even expected in the end. I loved her positive spirit, and it compelled me to be the best I could be, to a successful conclusion. Thank you, are the only words I genuinely believe works in this situation, and worthy ones earned by Holly’s caring endeavor to get the best for me.
