Having worked with Alison for many years, across a variety of businesses and industrial sectors (automotive, aerospace, power), Kendall Poole Consulting have always provided a proactive partnership by supporting through organisation design, scoping of roles, assessing existing and potential talent, delivering assessment centres, and ultimately working alongside the leadership team to create successful outcomes, this was particularly so through our work together at Johnson Controls Inc and BRUSH Electrical Machines with the restructuring of the Engineering Department.

We have worked with Kendall Poole Consulting for many years and they are a valued strategic recruitment partner for contractors, salaried and indirect positions. We have been and still are completely satisfied with their services and find all their employees extremely helpful led by the Managing Director, Alison Poole, who knows our business very well and knows who will ‘fit’ into the organisation particularly in terms of our culture and pace. Alison invests the time to fully understand the business with significant attention to detail.
When we introduced Assessment Centres several years ago Kendall Poole supported us through the process for many of our positions at different levels of the business which have had a significant impact on deciding on the right candidate. The results are plain to see in our business as these candidates are flourishing and are our future talent.
Kendall Poole produce KPI’s which assist us to document our recruitment progress which is very helpful. In addition, they have supported us over the years with our gender diversity to help us to promote our brand to engage females to want to work in our manufacturing organisation. Whatever the requirement or initiative they are always on board and we value their professional judgement greatly.
We have dealt with many recruitment partners in the past but the personal and professional service we receive from Kendall Poole has been instrumental in recruiting key positions and I would have no hesitation in recommending Kendall Poole Consulting Ltd as a strategic partner for any company.

I have worked with Kendall Poole Consulting for over 10 years and with Alison Poole, Managing Director, for 20 years plus. Alison and her team provide an excellent customer focused, dedicated and accurate supplier service to the businesses I have worked in. Kendall Poole quickly assimilates the requirements of a role and totally embed themselves into the culture and vision of the organisation. As a result, their recruitment ‘hit’ rate is always accurate and long-term relationships develop increasing their knowledge of the business. Candidates speak highly of the thorough process they have taken part in before meeting with the company direct.
I would not hesitate to recommend Kendall Poole to any other organisation.
Helen Hawkins FCIPD
HR Director EMEA
As a client and candidate, I have significant experience of the recruitment industry and can say beyond doubt that Kendall Poole Consulting Ltd ensure as best they can you are prepared for the interview and are fastidious in following up keeping the candidate informed of progress. This is refreshing which shows a connection to the person and not just a focus on moving CVs which is sadly prevalent in other major recruiters.
Interim General Manager
Alison Poole supported me via an outplacement service following my exit from a global organisation. Using a number of techniques from psychometric profiling and CV preparation, Alison helped me to understand my core skills and to which sectors and roles they could be best realised. Alongside interview techniques through role play practice, she gave me the added confidence to make the desired career move after 15 years with my last company – a huge step for myself made so much easier with Alison’s support. I would not hesitate to recommend Alison to anyone looking for such a service.
Global Quality & Technical Director
I have worked with Kendall Poole since 2010, I have found them to be one of the most professional and personable recruiters I have worked with, both on the contracting/interim side of their business, and their permanent placement. They manage the level of candidate/client relationship very well and offer constructive direction to the candidate prior and post interview. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to colleagues and would welcome the opportunity to work with them in a client facing role.
In summary, I would say that Kendall Poole Consulting Ltd offers a service above that of other recruiters; their offering puts them ahead of others.
