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 really struck me was just how much their ethos matched mine; I wanted to provide an outstanding working environment, offering excellent career prospects for those joining me in my endeavour to provide the best recruitment solutions to the Industry, as did they.

It has now been a number of years since I first set up the Branch in Burton (back in 2000), with the Crick office following two years later. We now have an extremely strong branch organisation and brand which is synonymous with excellence throughout the UK.

I am extremely proud of our achievements and the client testimonials that we regularly receive only enhance this pride. Add this to our achievements within the Sunday Times Top 100 SMEs to work for awards, which we won for three consecutive years, and you will see that I am well on my way to achieving my initial aim for my organisation.

I will always strive to improve this company, both for the clients that we serve and the people that help me to serve them.

In my spare time - what is left - I enjoy keeping fit, playing badminton and travelling!

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.

Jenrick Engineering Burton have enjoyed an extremely busy start to the year – with the amount of available jobs up by  23%, and an increase of new clients up by 10% for the same period of 2017. Due to an increase of investment in various sectors within engineering and manufacturing, businesses are recruiting more people to help cover the demand of the increased number of contracts that have been on the rise in the last 18 months. As Jenrick Engineering are the go to recruitment agent for a lot of the UK’s largest engineering and manufacturing businesses, the need to recruit more staff internally has led for the need for larger offices. From 1 July 2018 Jenrick Engineering have moved offices from 190 Horninglow Street, Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, DE14 1NG to their new offices: Badger Farm, Willow Pit Lane, Hilton, Derby, DE65 5FN. The new offices boast 2,000 sq. ft. of open plan space with purpose built interviewing and conference facilities offering clients a confidential space to conduct off site interviews at no cost.

 

The extra space and open plan layout will enhance our internal communication and knowledge on available roles and candidates which increases the speed to which we can respond to vacancies, and will allow for Jenrick Engineering to further recruit internal staff to enhance the excellent service provided to a range of clients within the engineering, food and drink and manufacturing sectors. It will also allow Jenrick Engineering to support new sectors and industries that are currently experiencing a high demand for highly skilled permanent, interim personnel and contractors.
