My first day in the Crick office was in February of 2007. Until then I’d worked on the other side of the fence – I was, and still am, a technical engineer specialising in Quality within the Automotive industry.

I knew that becoming a consultant would entail a huge learning curve, but I have to admit – I didn’t realise Jenrick was so thorough with how they recruit and how many new skills I needed to add to my armoury.

Speaking of armoury…when I'm not working you'll find me a lot of the time, playing karate. My Dad is an instructor and he’s been teaching me since I was a nipper, and I’m very proud to have achieved a Black Belt in this particular martial art as well as reaching a high standard in several others.

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.
