I started out my career in fashion working for a well known retail department store. Following on from this I went to work in recruitment and was there for three years. I decided to move on as I wanted to join an organisation that offered autonomy and who built their reputation on building relationships.
I connected with Trevor, Managing Director of Jenrick Commercial on LinkedIn and after exchanging a few messages it was clear to me that Jenrick would enable me to work with businesses that are a real interest to me, give me the buzz I was looking for and join a really lovely team!
My main specialism at Jenrick are in the HR and Internal recruitment sectors. I also work on a variety of office support roles.
I live for my holidays and I am always planning the next trip, I’m also a real foodie and love trying out new restaurants.
The Jenrick Group is regarded as one of the leading recruitment companies within the UK and is a four time "Sunday Times Top 100 Company to Work For".
Having been in recruitment for 15 years, in 2006 I decided to form Jenrick Commercial (a new division of The Jenrick Group) and I have to say, it’s been one hell of a ride. Recruitment has changed drastically over the last 15 years, however, I’ve learnt that if you keep things simple, work hard, be honest and really understand your clients and candidates then you will do well.
My loves in life are my wife (Miriam) and my son (Toron). I’ve been married for nearly 20 years, so I was snapped up early (my wife clearly has good taste – or at least I like to think so!).
2017 was our busiest year since we started trading over 11 years ago. However, as the business has grown our levels of service to our clients and candidates has been maintained at the highest levels. Jumping back to 2016 when we closed on a record year when, we thought the market had peaked – 2017 only went and continued in the same fashion and superseded our expectations. We saw our business increase by 153% from 2016. The experience we have gained through these busy times has set us apart from a lot of other companies which is why we retain the vast majority of our clients and see candidates making us the first choice to help them find exceptional jobs.
