I started my career as a Counter Manager at Barclays Bank Plc in 2005 and decided to move into the IT Recruitment Industry as a Sales Administrator in 2010 where I’ve worked for the last 8 years.
I wanted to move into a more diverse company working in a variety of sectors. I was contacted by Jenrick after they saw my CV on a job board and I jumped at the chance to come in and have a chat with them. I spoke with Trevor initially and was instantly sold on the company as a whole, and after meeting Sam and the team I knew I would fit in with the company culture and felt they had the same values and ethos as me.
I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and looking after my 3 nieces. I also enjoy going to different restaurants’ with my boyfriend, watching the latest movies at the cinema and weekly Pilates classes. I love writing and have written two blogs/articles around the Information Technology industry and hope to write some more in the future.
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closed on a record year when, we thought the market had peaked – 2017 only went and continued in the same fashion and superseded our expectations.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.
