My recruitment career started in 2002, when I started working for a company within engineering specialising in the contract sector.

Following this I took another recruitment position with a new start up company promising big things but I didn't enjoy the work or the company. I looked for a new position, still within recruitment but wanting a reputable company who I could "Enjoy" working for...Along came Jenrick.

I joined Jenrick in August 08 and definitely think I made the right choice. The Company started their investment in me almost immediately sending me on various training courses. The support structure and encouragement to do well is probably the best I've encountered and I actually do "Enjoy" my job!

Introducing...

Julie Alton

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.

Industry Insights

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.

The theme of 2018 overall was more stable, the seasonal peaks and troughs throughout the year weren’t as drastic as previous years. Businesses were keen to ensure they were ready for 2019, keeping us as a business on our toes all the way through the year and into 2019.

We experienced an increase in new clients who have come on board in 2018 through word of mouth recommendation, 30% up from 2017, and an increase in the availability of good quality candidates which led to more and quicker placements than 2017. Whilst the Engineering market place is still very candidate driven, there has been a pleasing amount of new moves gained through companies progressing their teams and requiring additional team members to back fill the positions.

We saw businesses investing in stability in the immediate future. That meant finding the best talent on the market to continue providing an excellent service to their customers while also ensuring a solid staffing foundation to weather any storms that may come.

We’ve seen a huge increase in permanent and contract roles available over the last 12 months, with no sign of this slowing since the start of this year. With good quality candidates looking to make their next career move early on, this has led to 2019 starting off with all hands on deck. So much so we plan to increase our own internal staff levels to keep up with the demand enabling us to ensure we are able to continue to provide the excellent customer service that Jenrick are known for, and clients are used to receiving.

The first few months of any year are a good indication of what to expect from the rest, and therefore we expect the market to remain cautious but to also be focused on the core needs of businesses and shorten the time of current vacant roles.

If you are looking for exceptional staff or your next career move then contact us on 01283 548121 or derby@jenrick.co.uk | 01788 824555 or crick@jenrick.co.uk

Jenrick Engineering have moved offices!

Jenrick Engineering Burton have enjoyed an extremely busy start to the year – with the amount of available jobs up by  23%, and an increase of new clients up by 10% for the same period of 2017. Due to an increase of investment in various sectors within engineering and manufacturing, businesses are recruiting more people to help cover the demand of the increased number of contracts that have been on the rise in the last 18 months. As Jenrick Engineering are the go to recruitment agent for a lot of the UK’s largest engineering and manufacturing businesses, the need to recruit more staff internally has led for the need for larger offices. From 1 July 2018 Jenrick Engineering have moved offices from 190 Horninglow Street, Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, DE14 1NG to their new offices: Badger Farm, Willow Pit Lane, Hilton, Derby, DE65 5FN. The new offices boast 2,000 sq. ft. of open plan space with purpose built interviewing and conference facilities offering clients a confidential space to conduct off site interviews at no cost.

 

The extra space and open plan layout will enhance our internal communication and knowledge on available roles and candidates which increases the speed to which we can respond to vacancies, and will allow for Jenrick Engineering to further recruit internal staff to enhance the excellent service provided to a range of clients within the engineering, food and drink and manufacturing sectors. It will also allow Jenrick Engineering to support new sectors and industries that are currently experiencing a high demand for highly skilled permanent, interim personnel and contractors.
