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.

Foundation Recruitment are extremely easy to deal with, very proactive and offer rounded advice on candidates, process management and contract details. My consultant offered good balanced advice, listened to concerns highlighted, and promptly acted on additional information required. I have worked with other recruiters previously and the level of service demonstrated from Foundation Recruitment was excellent. They took a detailed brief, provided a good overview of information on every candidate and took the time to gain a detailed understanding of the business, the role, skills required, and culture fit. Foundation Recruitment made me feel that my business was truly important and I will definitely be in touch for our next requirement.

Danielle was fantastic to work with, very attentive and would always follow up to speak about every stage of the process. She was very polite and professional through the process and seemed to be delighted - as I was - when I got the role. Foundation provides a great process from start to finish - fantastic advice along with clear and consistent communication!

I was highly impressed by Alex’s input into this process and I thank her for securing me a position. They submitted my application in a professional manner, giving the interviewer an accurate and clear understanding of my history and provided myself with detailed background information which enabled me to undertake appropriate research into my employers business. They were supportive and helpful throughout and provided a useful critical appraisal of my performance. They were invaluable in agreeing the finalised terms of employment and expedient in the negotiation process. Foundation were extremely easy to work with. Their expert consultants offered me a position which matched my skills to the needs of a prospective employer, whilst meeting my career aspirations and personal requirements.

Sanderson Weatherall

There were several stages to the interview and Foundation were very supportive, providing helpful feedback throughout the process and are still in touch to ensure everything is going ok. I had to do a presentation for the final stage which Ryan and Shaunagh reviewed, gave advice and offered positive feedback - really boosting my confidence! Having been passed forward for several interviews by a number of recruitment agencies, I can say that Foundation was way out in front in the way they handled the process and kept me informed. I have passed on Foundation's details to several colleagues, something which I haven’t done with other agencies.

Foundation Recruitment took the stress out of recruiting our newest team member. From helping to get the specs right, to delivering the best possible candidates to the interviews on time and properly prepared - they made the whole process much more successful and efficient. Having someone who knows about our business and the nature of the posts we need to fill, not only saves so much time, but ensures we get the best possible choice of candidates.
