Before joining Jenrick I was working in Events at a luxury hotel near Warwick. As much as I loved the environment, the career offered limited scope for progression and it was this in particular that prompted me to look for another opportunity.

What I wanted to do was to combine what I really enjoyed within the hotel environment, which was working with people and delivering the highest level of customer service, with a company and industry that would enable me to progress and fulfill my potential.

I saw what I felt was just the role I was looking for, and immediately applied to join the Jenrick Food and Drink Team as a Delivery Consultant.

I remember feeling extremely nervous before my interview but as soon as I met Karen Stilgoe, I instantly felt at ease. I met Kerry Mumby on the same day and realised that the nature of the team was so consistent. After completing my third and final interview with Julie Alton, as well as delivering a presentation to all three, I was offered the job and invited in to meet the rest of the team.

I have never walked into a working environment to be so warmly welcomed and made to feel part of a team – I just couldn’t wait to start!

Outside of work I’m a HUGE fan of travelling – both abroad and within the UK. I’m always excited to go off on new adventures, whether it’s punting in Stratford-Upon Avon or cycling around Amsterdam – I just love learning about new cultures and experiencing different ways of life.

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.
