I took on my first role within recruitment at a business based in Warwick where I had my first taste for recruitment specialising in the retail and automotive sector. During this time I took part in Assessment centres meeting candidates on a daily basis. This made me realise that I definitely wanted to stay in recruitment.
I realised that I enjoyed recruitment and having progressed as far as I could within my role, I began to seek a new company that would further my development.
Jenrick was clearly a company committed to training, was keen to develop its staff, and had an excellent reputation within the industry. It sounded like a really interesting company and appeared to be just the type of environment I was looking for.
I’ve joined Jenrick as a Delivery Consultant, which is the perfect starting place to enable me to gain much more experience and knowledge about recruitment and engineering as a whole in both an engineering and Food and Drink sector.
Outside of work I play volleyball for a local club called Rugby Phoenix, part of a West Midlands league, and last season we won the West Midlands trophy. I often play two games a week in addition to training once a week, so it definitely keeps me fit! I also enjoying running and have joined and girls running club in my local village where we meet once a week.
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.
