Before joining the Recruitment world I worked as an Emergency Medical Technician for East Midlands Ambulance Service and prior to this as a Royal Marine Commando.
I wanted to become a professional recruiter and further my career and found a position advertised working for Jenrick on LinkedIn. I liked the idea of working for a smaller company where I am recruiting for more specialist positions. The work-life balance and benefits also looked great and I am working much closer to home now!
I am working as a Technical Recruitment Consultant for the Engineering division. I hope to progress to a 360 Consultant in the next 3-6 months and winning new clients.
Keeping fit at the gym, traveling, and watching the latest Marvel films are just a few things I enjoy doing when not at work.
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.
