I really wanted to launch into the world of recruitment after University so I actively searched for recruitment agencies in the local area and came across the Jenrick website.

I absolutely loved they way they came across, really personable and refreshingly different to other agencies I’d been in contact with. The fact that the company has become a four-time consecutive winner of ‘The Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For’ awards, says it all.

I was really keen to speak with them and thought I would contact them directly to see if they were recruiting and I was chuffed to bits when they agreed to interview me!

After my first meeting with Jo Eley, I was incredibly impressed by the amount of rewards and incentives the employees received and it’s clear that everybody employed by Jenrick is extremely happy in their job and genuinely love what they do.

I’m now working for the Jenrick Engineering Burton Team, working as Joanne Bailey’s Delivery Consultant.

I’m really looking forward to competing in the internal sales competitions and hope to become one of the leading Delivery Consultant’s within the Engineering division and continue to progress within the company.

One of my biggest passions outside of work is football. I am a keen supporter of Aston Villa and have been since I was a young boy. I also enjoy playing the sport and currently play around 3-4 times a week both with friends for leisure and on a competitive level for a local team.

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.
