I’ve been in recruitment for a total of nine years now, six of which have been at Jenrick Engineering’s Burton branch.
Throughout this time, I have developed a range of excellent working relationships with clients who I am proudly working with today - the satisfaction I gain when they repeatedly come back to me, shows that the service I deliver is clearly hitting the mark!
I have developed major accounts with some of the largest food companies in the UK including Kerry Foods (Burton and Hyde), 2 Sisters Food Group and Kinnerton Confectionary, working with both their main sites and sister sites.
In addition to that, I now work within a range of industries, mostly being in the FMCG market, supplying to not just a range of leading international brands but also to emerging SMEs, through our ability to offer a scaleable and bespoke approach to recruitment.
What I love most about working at Jenrick is the incredibly vibrant and motivating team we have here, which has no doubt contributed to the success in my career so far.
Outside of work, I really enjoy playing netball, taking part as much as I can for a local team called ‘Kelly Girls’. We’ve got a really positive team spirit within the club and we get some pretty good results too!
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.
