I first joined the company back in 1984 to assist in the payroll department of Technic Services, one of our Recruitment Companies.
My initial stay was only meant to be short term, as I was returning to teaching (my profession) in the near future. Yet, I really began to enjoy myself, especially as my role was constantly expanding and my involvement within the company increased.
After gaining experience at a firm of Chartered Accountants I returned to the company in 1988 with the formation of Simon Holdings, the parent company of the Group. My part within that ‘project’ was to centralise and consolidate the administration and accounts throughout all the companies. This was the first move in bringing the companies much closer together.
Actually, it’s only when I think back that I realise how far we’ve come to reach our current home in the Clock Tower. There is no way I will ever forget our first office – a hut at Fairoaks, a small independent airfield near Woking. We had to call the Air Traffic Control Tower if we wanted the heating changed and there wasn’t even a loo. There’s nothing like the good old days!

I hope to be able to help the existing team improve themselves both professionally and personally through coaching, training, mentoring and I am also hoping to grow the Jenrick IT office whilst maintaining that core culture that made me join in the first place.
I used to play a lot of sports, particularly football as I was an all round avid sports fan but now with a young family I spend most of my time with my 1 year old son. When time allows it I try to see family and friends and socialise.
Imagine waking up for work and not having to worry about sitting on the bus in traffic, squeezing yourself onto a packed train (or not managing to squeeze on at all) or forcing your way through crowds? It may seem like the impossible, but it is in fact do-able.
Many people living in London have not ever even considered traveling out of London for work – but here’s why you should and why you might be missing out by not doing so...
Employer Branding – what is it and why should it concern me?
As a business, your employer brand is how a candidate sees you in the marketplace. Recruitment is continuously changing, whether that’s in technology, engineering or a commercial market.
