I joined Jenrick Engineering in November 2003. Initially I started my career as a Technical Consultant and within 6 months had been promoted to Senior Consultant.

My first major account I developed was a 1st Tier Automotive OEM and placed a range of engineers within this sector from Draughting / Design, Maintenance, Quality / Technical to Project Programme Managers.

The next major account that I developed was within a manufacturing FMCG site that was closing down manufacturing within the UK and moving abroad. I supplied a large number of contract engineers that maintained, de-commissioned and then carried out the installation abroad along with training their local engineers. This account opened the door within the FMCG marketplace and allowed me to develop my niche area within the marketplace: Food / FMCG.

Over the last 10 years I have been extremely successful in placing both contract and permanent engineers ranging from Maintenance, Project, Design / Draughting, Quality / Technical to Management level.

With my knowledge and reputation network within the FOOD / FMCG marketplace, I am developing the “food and drink” division within Jenrick as Business Manager. This role will allow me to be the “complete recruitment solution” to companies within these sectors.

My knowledge of this market, coupled with my track record for delivery, makes me the ideal recruitment partner for your general recruitment needs and also for companies that are running specific projects and the whole solution for new division / site opening / large installation of machinery.

In summary, I have the versatility of successfully serving different market industries, I have a wealth of knowledge on engineering / technical machinery along with capabilities of engineers and I believe more than 100% that I am the right “recruitment solution” for your business, as my testimonials demonstrate.
