Shelley Kendrick, Managing Director & Founder
I spent my early career working for Next retail, initially in Manchester and across the UK, moving to Jersey to manage the whole Channel Islands business.
In twelve months our team took the under performing Jersey store to being the highest turnover outlet within the Group.
My role took me to America where I helped to launch the Next brand, opening seven stores across Boston and Washington DC.
This experience in professional retail management was a fantastic training ground; I learned a great deal about business, people and management.
For me Human Resources wasn’t a huge leap from the customer service ethos I espoused in the retail world; in fact, the skills I acquired fitted very well into my next role at Mourant.
I spent 11 years with this leading international law and financial services firm, responsible for resourcing, recruitment and selection strategy culminating as Head of Group Recruitment across multiple jurisdictions.
In 2009 I set up Kendrick Rose because I saw there was a need for a client centric, consultancy agency that focused on customer service and a highly practical approach to recruitment and HR projects. My mantra became our tag line: resourcing excellence.
I’m passionate about building professional relationships based on honesty and integrity. For me, these partnerships are key to finding the ‘right fit’ for both our candidates and our clients. Through experience, reputation and referrals I’ve built up an enviable client and candidate base. In fact, the majority of our work comes from referrals.
The feedback I’ve had has been incredible and a testament to our success. It’s clear from our testimonials that we are doing something out of the ordinary, something excellent. This spurs me on to continue providing the best possible service and solutions to both our candidates and clients.
I have built a fantastic team I am very proud of. We take our work seriously but we also have fun; everybody plays a part in making Kendrick Rose a great place to work.
