After completing a college course in Business Studies I went into Event Management for almost three very enjoyable and challenging years. I then decided to take a career break and travel for a year, mostly around the Far East and Australia.

I came back feeling re-energised, and after short-term jobs working in Health Clubs (my out of work passion), I had the opportunity to join Jenrick Engineering.

So, in June 2005 I embarked upon my career in Technical Engineering Recruitment and have never looked back. It feels like each day I am learning something new, but that's what makes the environment so enjoyable - each day is a new challenge. The company ethos here is excellent and there is a real appreciation for hard work whilst maintaining a strong work/life balance.

During my time at Jenrick I have created some excellent working relationships with clients across a number of markets from FMCG Food to Automated plants. Recruiting a variety of contract and permanent roles, from Electrical & Mechanical Maintenance through to senior level positions such as Chief Engineer & Engineering Management.

My greatest achievements so far have been working closely with Coors, Walkers (Pepsico), Samworth Group, Tulip Foods, Florette, Holland & Barrett and Vanderlande.

Our ethos is that if we cannot save a client time and money, which we are convinced we can; then we aren't doing our job properly.

Managing Director

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.

What came of 2018 and how has that effected the start of 2019

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.
