Why Work With Us?


Simply put, we understand Portland business and its distinct culture. With the majority of local businesses being privately held or family owned, and many with less than 100 employees, networking is the key to finding talent and career opportunities in Portland. Working with a seasoned and well-connected recruiter is vital.
What makes us different from other staffing agencies? Our relationships. One of the best ways we measure our success over the years has been by our ability to grow, nurture, and connect great companies with the candidates who are aligned to support their success and growth.  When we earn our clients’ trust and build long-term partnerships, we know we’re getting the job done well. And through the diversity of industries and positions we serve, people are at the core of our work each day.
We’re proud to share a few stories of our recent client collaborations:
I have used Wendy for four separate executive sales recruitments. She and her team continue to go above and beyond to source candidates and provide us with A-game players. I will continue to use Kent Employment Solutions as I know I am getting the best service and get the opportunity to work with Wendy herself. – Heidi Nelson, Human Resources Manager, ID Experts
Wendy has been a great recruiter. With her help, I’ve been able to hire outstanding people. She has an excellent network, moves fast, and doesn’t waste anyone’s time. Her approach is from a whole-company perspective. That approach and her natural relationship-based style bring a lot of value to the company and to candidates and results in more successful placements. I recommend her highly and look forward to working more with her in the future. – Ken Robinson. Principal Consultant
With her clarity, honesty, and genuine care, Wendy creates great, actionable insights for her clients. I was fortunate to be on the receiving end of her tough-yet-fair advice, and my communications are the better for it. I’m grateful for Wendy’s high level of professionalism and empathy; I recommend her heartily. – Katy Mess, HR Business Partner, LivePerson
