I had previously worked in a number of senior and quite demanding generalist HR roles. I wanted to peform a role that allowed me to focus specifically on Recruitment which is an area I especially enjoy, but in a role that also provided me with a better work life balance.
I frequently passed the Jenrick Engineering Crick office as I live nearby and I often used to say I would like to work there.
I liked that they were a reputable, professional recruitment company that still believed in delivering a personal recruitment service to both their clients and candidates. I also like that they operate like a family business, being friendly and very team orientated.
I saw the Branch Administrator role for the Crick Office advertised and thought it was ideal for what I was looking for. I’ve only been with the Company since early October 2018, but so far, the role has been very busy, with no day being quite the same, which is great. I also like the fact that you can contribute to the working environment and add value by effectively supporting the team.
Now that I have time outside of work, I enjoy socialising, catching up regularly with family and friends. I also like some forms of fitness (i.e. running, Body Attack or Body Combat classes) and watching various sports (i.e. Formula 1 and MotoGP), which is probably due to me having grown up in a male dominated family. I must be mad, but I also like learning DIY activities (i.e around the home and garden) and of course, I love travelling the world to experience new places.
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.
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.
