Heledd Kendrick

CEO and founder

Heledd founded Recruit for Spouses in 2011 when, with a new posting, a young family and a serving partner she recognised a need to provide support and agile working opportunities to a much forgotten pool of talented individuals - military spouses. She has worked tirelessly since. Raising the profile of this underemployed group and providing real opportunities to get them back into work.

A little more about Heledd:

Best posting to date?
South Cerney or Dishforth Airfield.

What advice would you give your younger military self?
To approach everything with so much more positivity.

What inspires you about working at RFS?
The quality and quantity of skills the spouses have.

What has been your proudest moment?
Helping Rusila Halofaki into work. Her back story as a Fijian wife, moving around the world, underemployed and anxious. Getting her back into work at a level she deserved felt like a historical moment - not only for Rusila but for Foreign Commonwealth spouses who were struggling for so long.

What 3 items would you take to a desert island?
A Swiss army knife, A radio and A copy of War & Peace!

What's your favourite colour?
Teal

If you were a food, what would you be?
A lobster brioche!

The greatest asset we have is our amazing community of supportive, inspiring and determined military spouses. It's an honour to work on their behalf.

Emily Foster

RFS was...a platform for spouses who understood my struggles and my challenges. It felt like I came to them in pieces, deflated and very defeated and they (RFS) pieced me back together.

The competency amongst the military spouse community is unbelievably good and the fact all our candidates were happy with remote working made this ideal for us as a small business.

Michael Coates, COMBAT pest control

I found the course to be an excellent refresher of the skills I used in my previous roles, and also a confidence booster to me, proving that I can do it again
