  • “I joined KennedyPearce in 2010 from a large corporate firm, and was looking for a more autonomous entrepreneurial environment. I found just that, and have since rapidly advanced my career whilst learning a huge amount from my peers and the senior management team. The flat structure and family type environment makes this a really unique and extremely fun place to work.”

    Manager, Temporary Division, KennedyPearce

  • “I joined KennedyPearce in July 2011 with no prior recruitment experience. When I started I found the team really supportive. I was sat next to Stephen Pearce who trained me on the basics of recruitment and attended Carly’s weekly training sessions which really complimented my ‘on the job’ training. “
