Kate Kennedy


Kate joined Aspen at the end of 2021 as a Consultant, and is now working predominantly within the charity sector. Alongside supporting the Directors, Kate manages her own assignments and provides executive search support to the emerging leaders level across our sectors. Kate is involved in assignment management and recruitment, including proposals, market mapping, search and supporting the interview process right through to final offer negotiations.

Prior to joining Aspen, Kate had always been interested in the third sector, volunteering in Ukraine, supporting students with additional needs whilst working as a teacher in Hong Kong and interning with two Scottish charities.

Outside of work, Kate is passionate about travelling, art and trying different local restaurants.

I learned about Aspen People on seeing that they were recruiting for a post in the sector I had recently left, but which wasn’t quite right for me. Within two months of clicking ‘Follow’ on LinkedIn, they were calling me to offer me a job that feels like a perfect fit. My experience of that recruitment process was entirely positive: they were informed, efficient and personable. The mini-site for the job was invaluable when drafting my cover letter, and it provided a very human insight into the prospective employer. It was a pleasure to speak with Kate Kennedy, who provided regular updates from receipt of my application, through interview preparation, to that all-important outcome phone call. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kate and Aspen People to anyone.
