I began my recruitment career a decade ago and actually learnt my trade working for Jenrick IT. After around 5 years working for Jenrick, I wanted to make a change to my career and decided to go and work onsite in an in-house role, to gain further depth to my understanding of the recruitment life cycle. I worked as a contractor in a number of onsite roles including with BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, HSBC, Financial Conduct Authority and Visa. I took the decision to move back into agency recruitment in 2017 and worked with Orbis Consultants (London based technology recruitment agency) heading up the software engineering division

I had built a self-sufficient, high performing software engineering delivery team with Orbis and decided that I was now ready for a change. I had invested a lot of time and energy to build the team out and kind of lost sight of my personal and family life. Having two young children (6 and 4), I decided that I needed to make a change to my life and proactively reached out to James Davey to discuss the potential of rejoining Jenrick IT. After hearing more about how the business had grown and matured, we threw some ideas around and discussed if I could add any value to the Jenrick IT business, now here I am.

I will be focussing primarily on building out technology into financial services and building out a delivery team as we grow. The end goal is specialise in software engineering, data and change management. My client focuses will primarily be banking, capital markets, FinTechs and wider financial services firms.

Outside of work I like to spend as much time as possible with my two children Mason and Sienna. The very little spare time I have left (6.00am – 7.00am), I like to try and keep fit (mainly to keep up with the kids) by going to the gym.

Introducing...

James Davey

Manager

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.
