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.

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.

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.

When Danielle first contacted me about a fixed term role, I was fairly confident that I wouldn’t be applying. Danielle learned about my experience and showed me the options the job and business could offer me in the long run. She was incredibly supportive and encouraging and understood any reservations I had. The day I got the call to say I had been successful she was so compassionate and I felt she was genuinely understood what this meant to my family. She has a really lovely calm and reassuring manner that made me feel at ease during what has been quite an exciting but also scary change. A great professional to work with. I also had some experience with Shaunagh who was always just as pleasant as professional. Excellent ambassadors for the business.
