Previous CEO (Now Retired) - AFBI

In our dealings with Kennedy Recruitment we have found them to provide an extremely high level of service. Their consultants are consistently professional and helpful and strive to develop a full understanding of the work performed by AFBI, thereby better enabling them to provide us with appropriate and suitable temporary staff.

These temporary staff have been sourced in a timely manner and in many cases have performed an intrinsic role in AFBI’s ability to deliver our services

Once again we found Kennedy Recruitment’s provision of this service to be of the highest level, with all competitions being administered in a timely fashion. Their dedication to providing this professional service once again had a direct beneficial impact on AFBI’s ability to deliver our services as well as contributing to cost reductions in terms of both opportunity cost savings and savings on agency staff temporary worker spend.

Once again the benefits of this service were significant, and have played a vital role in AFBI’s ability to reduce costs and to deliver our services in as effective a manner as possible.

Moy Park

I can declare that to date the service Moy Park Ltd, has received from Kennedy Recruitment has been consistently efficient throughout. Candidates have been placed with our company in positions for which there is a skill shortage.  Requests for interviews are set up efficiently as is follow up with job offers.  Recruitment Consultants are professional, friendly and helpful at all times.


I would like say a big thank you to everyone in Kennedy Recruitment for the professional and efficient manner you dealt with all my requests for graphic designers for NIEA.

Selina Purdy - Candidate

Could you kindly pass on my utmost gratitude for the outstanding service that you have shown me by all your staff at Kennedy Recruitment. Particularly Kathy Jayne and the receptionist staff.

From the very first day, when Kathy greeted me with a friendly smile, the service she provided was first class. Kathy never got flustered and showed total dedication and commitment to her duties. Any staff I have been in contact with at Kennedy have been a credit to your company.

James Walsh - Candidate

I was placed in a role by Kennedy recruitment in Nov 2010 . I remained in this role until April 2011. On departing this role I met with Stephen Hill to discuss future plans, how the role had gone and any opportunities that may present themselves in the future.

Stephen was aware I had a young family and of the distances I was travelling to work and that to undertake any future opportunities it would have to be financially viable for me to consider. I felt he managed my expectations very well and was always receptive to my communications. Stephen was able to periodically place me in local roles which he acknowledged were not entirely suitable to my skill set but was aware I would be able to competently undertake.

In December of 2012 Stephen called me with regards to a position that had become available. I was already in a post at that time but Stephen recognised that this was a position I had previously immensely enjoyed and was an area in which I had expressed a desire to work. He helped greatly in facilitating the transition between roles.

I was and am hugely appreciative of his friendly approach and the fact that Stephen thought of me for this role. I believe this demonstrates that Stephen was able to find the balance in not just finding work for his clients but more importantly matching the right role to the right candidate.

I have experience of many other recruitment consultants. Some have secured roles for me and others have presented unrealistic expectations. Stephen understood my circumstances and acted upon those and made the process very easy for me during what was a very testing time.

Xootec Ltd

As a fast growing company with little time to spend on HR & recruitment, we needed to recruit staff who would fit well with our existing team. Kennedy recruitment took the time to ask us questions about the kind of people we were looking for, helped us draw up some great interview questions and were involved throughout the process. As a result, we have been able to develop a team of people who work well together and deliver great service to our customers.

Specialist IT Candidate – Feb 2013

First of all I wanted to thank you for all your help in the past week. It has been greatly appreciated and I will certainly recommend other people to go to Kennedy Recruitment…

…I really appreciate your time and the work that you put into pushing my candidacy forward.

Dearbhla Magill - Candidate 2013

Kathy Jayne thank you so much for all of your help over the past year.
It just dawned on me that this time last year I had left a job I didn't enjoy, and you were the person who made me feel that I didn't have to settle for a job that didn't suit me.
You helped me to get back my confidence back, and got me a position in a lovely office with people who appreciated my work and help.
You helped me again when I was in another job I didn't enjoy, and you got me the perfect job. I absolutely love working in the library, and even if I was a bit sceptical with travelling..., I have fallen completely in love with the job.
I'm writing this email to tell you I have got a permanent position... And to tell you that none of this would have been possible if I hadn't met you this time last year.
I wanted to let you know that I am forever grateful for all the help and support you have given me. I cant express how happy I am to be able to say that I enjoy my job and can see myself doing it for years to come.
Thank you again for being so supportive, I've recommended you to anyone I've met looking for a recruitment agency that is will to go above and beyond the call of duty. You've even seen my boyfriend in the past few weeks.
Thank you for everything.
