I joined Jenrick in 2002 as a consultant. 18 years later I am still here. In 2005 I became the Branch Manager for the office in Crick and over the years I have recruited a very strong recruitment team to support our ever-growing and committed client base.
The branch has evolved over the years to support the career goals of individuals within the team and as a result, we have two teams specifically designed to support the Food & Drink sector and Manufacturing & Engineering.
The average tenure within the team at Crick is 10 years and therefore the market knowledge amongst the team is second to none. I am incredibly proud of who we are as a team and what we continue to achieve.
When I am not doing my full-time day job, I am doing my other full-time job supporting my 2 daughters and generally ferrying them around.
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".
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.
It's great to be back in the office!
But things have changed. There are little differences around the building and a few new rules too!
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.
