I am a Microbiologist by trade and worked for 4 years in the labs for a major Pharmaceutical Manufacturer. After that, I went into Medical Sales and then in 1999 fell into Recruitment. I have been recruiting Engineers and Scientists into the Pharmaceutical, Manufacturing, and FMCG market place for 20 years and have never looked back!

Unfortunately due to the COVID pandemic, the company I was working for was forced to close its UK division. I took some time out to support my kids with homeschooling before setting out to find a new role. I came across Julie Alton's post on LinkedIn for a Branch Manager and having had a good look at Jenrick's website I sent her through my CV.

I am now the new Branch Manager of Jenrick’s Derby office and working with Julie, I am hoping that we will be able to grow the team, building upon the already very solid foundations, expanding our current client base, maximizing our existing accounts, and breaking into new market sectors

Most of my spare time is taken up with my 2 kids and Dog. When time permits I am an avid sports fan, particularly Rugby, Football (notably a supporter of the mighty Liverpool FC), Cricket, and F1. I am also a keen cyclist and get out on the roads as often as possible.

Introducing...

Julie Alton

Managing Director

I know that it may sound cliché, but recruitment really is my passion. I have worked in Engineering Recruitment since 1993 and always strive to be known for providing quality recruitment solutions. In an industry where reputation is foremost, I have aimed to maintain a high-quality, honest-service approach throughout all of my roles.

In 2000 I was approached to join the Simon Holdings Group, with a view to extending their Technical Recruitment presence into the Midlands, thereby complementing the progress of their Jenrick Engineering brand in the South since 1967.

What came of 2018 and how has that effected the start of 2019

2018 wasn’t a particularly straightforward year, there were many factors such as Brexit - big political decisions that came with that and on top of that the media were forecasting a slowdown of UK GDP growth. All this gave the feeling of doom and gloom. Thankfully due to the great British resolve, for the most part, these factors were sidelined by businesses with the attitude of ‘We just need to get on with it, irrespective’. For us as a business it did really feel like business as usual, just with a side of caution.
