RFS Founder Named in Timewise Power 50

Recruit for Spouses Ltd founder recognised for her innovative approach to flexible working for military spouses by Timewise.

Recruit for Spouses Limited is thrilled to announce that Founder and CEO, Heledd Kendrick, has been recognised by TimeWise Power 50 for her innovative approach to making flexible working accessible and successful within the military spouse community.

Timewise Power 50 recognises organisations and individuals across industries who work tirelessly to incorporate flexible working initiatives for the benefit of the employer and employee. Since it’s conception in 2011, Heledd has been at the forefront of changing the narrative around military spouses and work

Recognising a huge gap between employers wanting hard-working committed individuals, and military spouses who are a highly motivated, skilled community desperate to work but are unable due to frequent moves, long-term deployments and extended career breaks.

Speaking of the award, Heledd says “I am honoured to accept this award from the team at Timewise. Flexible working is a concept we at RFS Ltd strongly support. All our own employees are flexible workers and we continually work with other businesses to extol the virtues of this progressive way of working.” Heledd continues: “The introduction of the Armed Forces Covenant provided the opportunity to shine a light on the needs of the Armed Forces community and created goodwill among employers. But there is still so much to do in order to ensure military spouses don’t suffer unconscious bias in the workplace and have the chance to prove themselves within the flexible workplace.” Recruit for Spouses Limited are supported by their partner Alexander Mann Solutions who drive the concept of flexible working through to clients across the globe and has been a consistent supporting partner for Heledd and RFS Limited.

Speaking of the award, AMS Group Sector Managing Director Steve Leach says “AMS are thrilled to see that Heledd has been recognised for her continued drive and inspiration. Together with RFS, AMS have placed military spouses into a number of our teams and seen significant benefits. The individuals are motivated, eager to learn and have proved themselves to be really valuable team members. I am delighted we have partnered with Heledd and her team in embracing the concept of flexible working to enable our clients to benefit from this significant, value adding talent pool.”

The Timewise Power 50 will be officially acknowledged at a celebration breakfast on Wednesday 26th February in London.

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.
