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!
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.
