Human Resources are involved in the management of your employment from issuing contracts of employment to acknowledging resignation letters. This is with the exception of administrating your pay, which is dealt with by the Payroll Department. Human Resources send you letters when your hours, pay or location change and monitor your holiday and sickness as well as review Competency Performance Assessments completed by your line manager. We also work with you in the event of pregnancy, discipline, grievances, bereavement, long term sickness and any other matters that affect you whilst at work.

How can I help?
How to volunteer for a workshop
If you're a qualified beautician and can spare a few afternoons a year to help run our workshops, we'd love to hear from you.
You’ll be working with women who have undergone invasive and appearance changing cancer treatments, so a kind, sensitive and friendly personality – and a caring commitment to helping others – is an absolute must.
To become a LGFB volunteer, you should have a minimum of one year’s experience in cosmetics or beauty therapy and be proficient in the art of make-up application and skin care.
You’ll need to be available for a LGFB training session to get to know how the workshops are run, and you’ll need to commit to a minimum of one workshop, alongside two other beauticians, every three months. You are allowed to attend these workshops in work time and will have your expenses paid by Kenneth Green Associates as well as the opportunity to collect Points Make Prizes (50 per workshop attended).
If you would like to become a volunteer please click on “volunteer” and complete the form online, or call Sarah Green at the KGA head office on 01932 827 060.
About the workshops
Look Good... Feel Better organise two-hour skincare and make-up workshops every week, fortnight or month, depending on hospital requirements in each area.
Held in hospitals and specialist centres throughout the UK, each workshop is run by three volunteer LGFB trained beauticians, many of whom work for major cosmetic companies based in department stores close to where the workshops take place.
It is free to attend, and when ladies arrive, they receive a LGFB gift bag filled with a specially selected range of donated skincare and make-up products suited to their skin tone.
Look Good... Feel Better beauticians then guide them through a 12-step skincare and make-up regime, with great hints and tips on how best to apply each product. Particular care is taken with key ‘problem’ areas resulting from cancer treatment, such as re-defining the eye area when ladies have lost brows and lashes.
The workshops are also about having fun. They are informal, relaxed and informative and give people a chance to meet others in a similar situation. It’s a time for a woman to focus on herself – and not her illness.
Donate to LGFB
LGFB gains financial, product and professional support from over 40 member companies and brands. A large proportion of their income comes from independent fundraising - individuals, companies, store groups and others who run events and raise money to support the charity. KGA is committed to donating money to this cause each year. We also participate in their national fundraising day on 11th May.
As an active cancer support charity, LGFB welcome donations to help them continue their valuable work. If you’d like to donate please send a cheque payable to Look Good... Feel Better to:
Kenneth Green Associates
Look Good…Feel Better is one of the most practical, pro-active and positive Programmes available to women undergoing cancer treatment. At what can be an extremely difficult time, LGFB Volunteers help them concentrate on themselves – not their illness – and give them the chance to have fun, boost their confidence and feel self-assured.
Alice Connolly, Brand Manager:
“Look Good Feel Better does exactly what it says on the tin, it gives wonderfully brave ladies the opportunity to spend an afternoon pampering themselves and they leave feeling much better!
I love being a part of these sessions, seeing the transformations, watching the camaraderie between the ladies and their excitement as they open their bags and they discover all of the products inside. In many cases, ladies attending these sessions are at a stage in their treatment where their skin and hair is showing signs of change brought on by the chemotherapy drugs. It is so rewarding to be able to show them how best to look after themselves during this time, what to use to reduce redness, how to create the illusion of an eyebrow or eyelashes - the little things that we take for granted but that make such a huge difference.
It’s my biggest honour to be a Look Good Feel Better Volunteer and I would recommend volunteering to all of our consultants.”
Val Norman, Williams & Griffin, Colchester:
“Look Good Feel Better workshops are the most rewarding afternoons that you can do. I always demonstrate the application of eyebrows, and to see the ladies faces light up once the eyebrows go on is fantastic! I would recommend volunteering to everyone; it is so lovely to give something back. Everyone knows someone who has been touched by cancer, so go on and volunteer, you won't regret it!!!”
Anne Kemp, Bentalls, Kingston:
“When was the last time you felt good, smiley good, uplifted good? That’s how I feel after my Look Good...Feel Better afternoon.
By sharing your knowledge you can help to make someone feel beautiful and enable them to enjoy a moment to forget cancer, to be a girl again and to giggle with other women as they apply mascara.
We all know how to make someone feel good, give it a try, give something back”
Bernadette Bird, House of Fraser, Guildford:
"After completing the registration document given to me by Kenneth Green Associates, I received an information pack in the post from LGFB; this included a DVD showing a LGFB work shop in action. I was then invited to observe a work shop in the Hospital that was near to my place of work. The work shop was held in a room away from the main wards and I was met by a wonderful lady who works with the hospital and arranges for the ladies to attend. She introduced me to the other three volunteers, who have been involved with LGFB for some years. Ten ladies were going to attend this work shop and the room had been equipped with a table, chairs, mirrors, face wipes and ten cases filled with donated products.
The ladies arrived, each of them at a different stage in their treatment. Some wore scarves on their head, others wigs and others still had their hair. The aim of the workshop was to go through the routine of cleansing the face, to the application of full make up.
I found the room was very quiet at first, but as the group went through their products with delight and started to apply them so the conversations started and by the time we had got to the makeup section, two ladies had taken their wigs off and everyone was sharing experiences. One lady shared with us that it was the first time she could talk openly about her cancer as her husband was in denial. Her neighbour volunteered her mobile number so they could meet for coffee in the future. Although I was an observer that day I was asked to help with eye makeup and eyebrows.
LGFB does what it says: it makes people “Look Good & Feel Better”. At the end of the workshop the room was filled with happy, chatty people. That day I was VERY PROUD that I worked for a company that gave something back."
Michelle Bruce, Fenwick, Tunbridge Wells:
“I decided to become a Look Good Feel Better volunteer after attending a workshop as a patient. I wanted to give something back to the charity that had helped me feel confident when I was having chemotherapy.
Initially I was worried about volunteering as I had no skin care or make up experience but soon found out that I needn’t have worried. You do not have to do anything that you are not confident doing.
Although these ladies are going through a gruelling treatment regime and quite often walk into the room shy and retiring, by the end of the session they leave with new vigour, confidence and smiles on their faces. For two hours they have been taken away from a world of treatment and back into normality.
Look Good… Feel Better cannot run without the support of the organisations that sponsor it and the consultants who help run the workshops, so I would recommend that everyone considers volunteering their skills to this worthwhile charity”
Kenneth Green, Chairman, KGA and Board Member for Look Good…Feel Better:
“The story is in the name. The beauty industry makes cancer patients feel better by providing expert help that brightens what might otherwise be a grey day with advice and products that bring the colour and a smile back.”
Sarah Green, Business and Events Manager, KGA & Ambassador for Look Good…Feel Better:
“To spend an afternoon at a LGFB workshop has to be one of the most inspiring and uplifting things to do.
To see the ladies arrive who are receiving treatment for cancer and not always looking or feeling their best, it is great to see that after two hours with the LGFB volunteers, their magic wand and boxes of magic, these same ladies leave feeling and looking fantastic. Each and everyone has the most amazing smile of confidence on their faces, that it is impossible not to feel good and smile with them!”
Georgina Blake, Head of Training, KGA and Ambassador for Look Good…Feel Better:
“We deal in beautiful, luxurious items in prestigious and pristine environments, and can take these fabulous products for granted sometimes. It is thoroughly uplifting and rewarding, therefore to step away from the glamorous department store counter for the afternoon, and spend time sharing your beauty industry knowledge and skills with ladies who really need a lift and a confidence boost. Being part of the LGFB workshops, however is more than just teaching 10 women how to look after their skin and apply make-up…it’s about lending a kindly listening ear, showing that you care, and making them feel like a person and not a patient for a few hours.
When they walk out of the workshop, they walk a bit taller, and smile much more freely. And what do you get out of it all? The life-affirming satisfaction and glad feeling that you've truly made a difference to other people’s lives, through using the skills and energy that your every day job requires, in a practical and positive way.”
Look Good…Feel Better
Kenneth Green Associates prides itself on giving back to charity and has always been a proud supporter of Look Good…Feel Better, a charity which touches so many people.
The Look Good…Feel Better cancer support Programme is based on the idea that if you look good on the outside, it will help you to feel great on the inside. Their free skincare and make-up workshops make a huge difference to women diagnosed with cancer all over the UK, by helping to combat the visible side effects of cancer treatment and, in turn, boost confidence and well being. In each workshop three volunteer beauty consultants take everyone through a specially designed 12-step skincare and make-up routine. At the end of two hours of learning, fun and laughter, the ladies leave feeling relaxed and full of renewed confidence in their appearance.
As a cancer support charity, Look Good…Feel Better relies on individuals, companies and volunteers to make it a reality. With plans to offer the programme to 50% of cancer patients by 2016 across the UK, LGFB are always in need of greater support. Your involvement can make a huge difference to many lives; either through monetary donations or helping in a practical way by becoming a volunteer and assisting at their regular workshops.

What is the CFSS?
The CFSS (Certification for Fragrance Sales Specialists) is an internet education programme for fragrance consultants, run on-line by the Fragrance Foundation. This course is designed to recognise the professionalism of fragrance selling, and covers topics such as the history of fragrance and gives a thorough grounding on fragrance families and olfactory and fragrance terms and the techniques of successful selling.
It is a great opportunity to raise your fragrance skills to a higher level of knowledge and professionalism and be able to achieve a trusted qualification that will recognise your expertise in the fragrance field.
How much study is involved?
Studying for the qualification and taking the exam itself are all done on computer on the internet. Approximately 15 hours of studying is required, and the multi-choice exam takes approximately 90 minutes to complete.
The Study Guide has been prepared in conjunction with one of the most respected authorities in the field of certification, as well as the US Sense of Smell Institute and members of the fragrance industry from retail, manufacturing and sales training.
The course runs from February to April and August to October each year and thanks to the online flexibility candidates can choose when and where to log in and study. Once each candidate has completed their studies they can take the online exam.
What happens after I have completed the exam?
Upon completion of the CFSS exam, you will be notified immediately by the Fragrance Foundation of your achieved grade. The fragrance sales consultant receiving the highest examination score in the UK will be invited to London to be honoured at the FiFi UK Fragrance Awards Ceremony.
In 2012 we were proud to announce that Monika Casey, from House of Fraser Leamington Spa received the highest mark in the country for her CFSS exam. She joined Kenneth and the Directors at the FiFi award ceremony in London, where she received the accolade of being honoured on stage.

KGA In-Store Coaches
Our Coaches have been chosen as role models and ambassadors for the company. In addition to their jobs as Account or Business Managers, they are responsible for welcoming and training new starters within the company. They play a vital role in assisting the Training Department and in providing our new consultants with paperwork, procedure and product knowledge and selling expertise before they attend a Discovery School.
How does coaching work?
Training Coordinator Claire Graham notifies our coaches of who the new consultants are in their area, and she sends the new starter a welcome pack notifying them of who their Coach is. The Coach then contacts the new starter and between them, they arrange two days when coaching can take place (in the Coach’s store). Once the coaching days have been completed, the new starter can attend their Discovery Experience at Head Office.
The KGA Training Team are here to support all of you, and are just at the end of the phone to answer any of your queries on product knowledge, selling skills, and training courses. We run as many as 100 different training schools, reaching more than 3000 consultants and non-consultants every year, and also are responsible for consultant uniform, file cards and In-Store Coaches; as well as many other projects such as the consultant magazine.
We strive to ensure all our trainings are fun and motivational as well as focused on the message of the brands and the knowledge you need to make those all important sales.

Kenneth Green Associates
Sales and Marketing
Kenneth Green Associates are the largest distributor of fine fragrance and skincare in the UK and in 2011 came 3rd in "The Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For."
Our employees work in 3 locations and when applying for a position it is best to decide which is suitable to you. You may wish to be located close to home as part of our team of Consultants in a Department store working with customers purchasing our fragrances and skincare products. Your experience may be field based with responsibility for a territory within the UK and therefore you could sell to the retailers. Alternatively, your skills could be in marketing, PR, HR or finance and administration where a role based at our Head Office in Weybridge, Surrey supporting employees based in the field or in stores would suit you. No matter which type of role suits you, they are all critical to the business and make a valuable contribution.
We offer competitive salaries for all roles, along with paid holidays, Company Sick Pay, an allocation of products (staff allocation), staff purchase opportunities and full training. Additionally, consultants are also provided with a smart uniform.
The Company was started in 1990 and by January 1993 became a Limited Company. The share holding of the Company is entirely in the Green family name.
In 1996, a new company was formed, Classic Beauté Limited, with the same Board of Directors, but a different marketing and sales structure, specialising in limited distribution niche brands.
The company began trading with a clear guiding principle, to provide client companies with the best knowledge of how to build profitable business in the uniquely complex UK fine fragrance and cosmetics market. This would be achieved by a thorough understanding of the client's global strategy and expert application of that strategy at a local level.
Over the years, this guiding principle had taken Kenneth Green Associates from a relatively small family run business, to one of the largest specialist distribution companies in the world.
Today Kenneth Green Associates continues to be the leading fragrance distributor in the prestige department store sector and the number four fragrance supplier in the UK market overall, representing over 20 prestige brands.
With headquarters at Hill House in Weybridge, Surrey, 30 kilometres from London, Kenneth Green Associates is managed by the Board of Directors under the leadership of the Chairman, Kenneth Green. There are over 400 people working within the business.
Kenneth Green Associates was established as a Partnership in January 1990 and has grown to be one of the leading distributors of prestige products in the UK today. The company is proud to represent over twenty leading brands from around the world, and enjoys a close working relationship with these client companies.
Projecting an international image with local know-how and professionalism, the strength of KGA has been built by a strong team of professionals, many of whom have been with the company for a number of years.
KGA represents and distributes international prestige beauty brands in the United Kingdom, Channel Islands and the Republic of Ireland. We apply our expertise to translate our brands international strategies to these markets.
KGA manages the full marketing mix, from sales strategy & pricing to media planning. Distribution of our fragrance brands is through premium beauty retailers such as Department Stores and specialised retail chains.
As a service company, our people are the priceless ingredient of our success.
