Before joining Jenrick I was working in the public sector, which was my first job after taking an 8 year break to have my two children, and after struggling with the ‘one size fits all’ model, I felt it was time to move on to a company that was smaller & more bespoke.  What had attracted me to Jenrick was its individual approach to each employee, where 'the more you put in the more you get out' attitude is applied.  After a few short weeks it was clear that I’d made the right decision and felt part of a busy, friendly & dynamic team.

I initially joined Jenrick as PA to Julie Alton, who is Jenrick Engineering's Managing Director - as a born organiser, this role appealed to me straight away.  This is a new role in the company and I‘m at my happiest when super busy and at the bottom of a very sharp learning curve! 

My skills in the role rapidly developed within the first year of being in the role and soon enough I was once again craving a new challenge within the company. I was keen to give the recruiment side a go, something I had never done before, and in January 2014 I became a Delivery Consultant for the Jenrick Engineering Burton team. That's what I love about Jenrick, there are never any barriers if you want to take your career in a new direction!

Outside of work is a steady stream of typical ‘mummsy’ stuff; I do spend an awful lot of time being a taxi driver for my two very active boys!  My passion is my family & all my efforts outside of work are ploughed into them.  I’m a born nurturer and love to cook & bake, and in my spare time you'll find me constantly trying out new recipes and I get a buzz from seeing friends and family enjoy my latest creations!

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.

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.

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.
