Rendell was born in Ashford, Surrey, but lived in Basingstoke, Hampshire. He started his career with Staines Albion, where he played until the age of 16. After this, Rendell was signed onto the books of Aldershot Town before joining nearby Reading. Unable to break into the Reading first-team, he was loaned back to Aldershot, and had work experience loans at Forest Green Rovers and Hayes.
Rendell had a successful spell with Crawley Town, initially on loan, before making the move permanent until the end of the 2006–07. He scored 11 goals in 42 league games for Crawley throughout the season.
He joined Cambridge United on a free transfer in the summer of 2007. He started the season as a substitute, but following an injury to fellow striker Lee Boylan, he was given a first-team opportunity and scored 22 goals by mid-February.
On 18 February 2008, Rendell joined Cambridge's rivals Peterborough United on loan with a view to a permanent transfer. He scored three goals in ten games towards the end of the 2007–08 season as Peterborough won promotion to League One. The move was made permanent in May for a fee of £115,000. However, after failing to make an impact at London Road during the beginning of the 2008–09 season due to the success of the forward pairing of Craig Mackail-Smith and Aaron McLean, Rendell joined Yeovil Town on loan for one month.
Return to Cambridge United
When the Yeovil loan expired, Rendell re-joined his former club, Cambridge United, on an initial loan until January 2009. After negotiation, his loan at Cambridge was extended until the end of the season. Rendell went on to score a 119th-minute winning goal against Stevenage Borough in the second leg of the 2009 Conference Premier play-off semi-final, sending Cambridge into the final, which they lost to Torquay United. Peterborough rejected a bid from York City to sign Rendell on loan for the 2009–10 season in July 2009.
In June 2010 Rendell signed for an undisclosed fee for League Two side Wycombe Wanderers. In his first season as a Wycombe player he topped the goalscoring charts at the club, with a return of 19 goals, 9 of which were penalties. Wycombe won promotion to League One and Rendell struggled to replicate his scoring form. In October 2011 he was loaned out to Bristol Rovers for one month.
On 20 June 2012 Rendell signed for Conference Premier side Luton Town on a two-year contract for an undisclosed fee from Wycombe Wanderers. This move reunited him with manager Paul Buckle, who he had played under at Torquay and Bristol Rovers. Rendell scored his first goal for the Hatters in a 3–1 victory against Ebbsfleet United on 27 August 2012.
On 26 January 2013 Rendell scored the winning goal in Luton's fourth round FA Cup match against Premier League team Norwich City. He scored 12 goals in 47 games over the 2012–13 season, but was transfer listed by new Luton manager John Still in April 2013. In July 2013, he had a trial at former club Torquay United, but suffered a hamstring strain in a friendly match against Salisbury and returned to Luton.
On 13 September 2013, Rendell joined Conference Premier side Woking on loan for three months. He scored on his debut against Tamworth and went on to score six further league goals in 15 matches before returning to Luton. In January 2014, he went on trial once again with Torquay, but was not offered a contract. Rendell was released from his Luton contract by mutual consent later that month.
Rendell is currently in a relationship with his partner Sam. The couple had a son, Alfie, who was born four weeks prematurely in late 2010. On Christmas Eve 2010, it was revealed that his son had died after being in hospital for two days.
