Before Jenrick, I worked for Thomas Cook as a Travel Advisor. I really enjoyed my time there but my reasons for leaving were that I was looking for a brand new challenge allowing me to stretch my boundaries and progress in my career.
I heard about Jenrick in the paper and knew instantly that the role being advertisied was right up my street - on viewing the job spec it prompted me to visit the Jenrick website to find out more information about the company. I was attracted to Jenrick with its fantastic reputation offering plenty of career opportunities.
So I applied immediately and two interviews later I got offered the job!
My first impressions of the company were really positive, the team here have been really welcoming and it's clear that the award-winning company provide a very friendly but professional and motivating working environment..
As Technical Consultant I specialise in helping the team with existing clients and candidates and helping all team members with day to day duties.
Outside of work, my favourite hobby is dancing. I've been doing ballet, tap and modern for about 10 years now - I love it. I also really enjoy playing rounders in the summer months.
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.
