I joined Jenrick IT as a graduate with a BSc in Business and I.T. from Southbank University. After 12 years with the company, I’m working as UK Business Accounts Manager managing a number of key accounts within our Financial Services division covering Investment Banking, Clearing and Exchange Trading. Not only that, I have been developing a number of accounts in the Consultancy and Digital Media sector.
I love working at Jenrick and although we have been going almost 50 years, there’s still a real start up and entrepreneurial feel to the business. We constantly innovate the way we do things and as anyone who knows our industry well enough, it’s never boring!
I’ve been able to establish relationships with some of the biggest brands in the world as well as helping a number of tech start-ups get off the ground, I love the versatility of the role - one minute we are building a test team for a major investment bank, the next we are recruiting a CTO for a Shoreditch start-up!
I especially like the amount of positive feedback we receive from our Clients and Contractors. I often get comments that our recruitment process is one the ‘most comprehensive’ in the market. It confirms to me that the way we do things in Jenrick, is the right way
Outside of work I really enjoy skiing, cycling, cooking, live music and collecting art.
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".
With 13 years within IT Recruitment, having progressed from a Consultant through to Senior Management. Through-out this time I have worked across multiple disciplines working with clients and candidates across Data, Development and Programme Management to name a few; I have a breadth of experience working with SME’s through to FTSE 100 companies, anything focussed around helping organisations through Technology Transformations is what I love to do.
The opportunity to work with an established business that is renowned for its Service and Relationships- Jenrick is very highly thought of amongst its existing clients and provided me with a great platform to build upon.
I am Managing the already brilliant existing team but hoping to pass some of my experience of growing Technology Recruitment brands within London to the Jenrick IT brand.
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.
Here at Jenrick, we strongly believe in giving back to the community and although we happily donate money to fantastic causes, we also believe in giving our time. We recently decided to give up a day, as a team to help at Walton Charity at their Allotments, as after some research, we decided that we really liked their work and what they do to help the community.
Imagine waking up for work and not having to worry about sitting on the bus in traffic, squeezing yourself onto a packed train (possibly 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...
