I started working for Jenrick Engineering in April 2007; I began covering maternity leave on a fixed-term contract. My background was in sales and in June 2007 I was given the opportunity to move into a consultant role. All these years later I’m still here in the role of Business Manager.
I don’t know where the time has gone but I still enjoy the daily challenges and the variety within my role, along with the sense of satisfaction the job brings.
Over the last 13 and a half years I have placed both in the contract/interim and permanent market ranging from Maintenance, Project, Design / Draughting, Production Managers, Warehouse Managers, Quality / Technical, Maintenance Managers, Engineering Manager (the list goes on!)
Since being with Jenrick I have built relationships with many organisations, particularly within the Food & Drink industry. It’s a great feeling when my clients comment on my work approach, my understanding of their requirements, and when they contact me with repeat business.
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.
It's great to be back in the office!
But things have changed. There are little differences around the building and a few new rules too!
2018 wasn’t a particularly straightforward year, there were many factors such as Brexit - big political decisions that came with that and on top of that the media were forecasting a slowdown of UK GDP growth. All this gave the feeling of doom and gloom. Thankfully due to the great British resolve, for the most part, these factors were sidelined by businesses with the attitude of ‘We just need to get on with it, irrespective’. For us as a business it did really feel like business as usual, just with a side of caution.
