Before joining Jenrick I was working in the public sector, which was my first job after taking an 8 year break to have my two children, and after struggling with the ‘one size fits all’ model, I felt it was time to move on to a company that was smaller & more bespoke.  What had attracted me to Jenrick was its individual approach to each employee, where 'the more you put in the more you get out' attitude is applied.  After a few short weeks, it was clear that I’d made the right decision and felt part of a busy, friendly & dynamic team.

I initially joined Jenrick as PA to Julie Alton, who is Jenrick Engineering's Managing Director - as a born organiser, this role appealed to me straight away.  This was a new role in the company and I‘m at my happiest when super busy and at the bottom of a very sharp learning curve! 

My skills in the role rapidly developed within the first year of being in the role and soon enough I was once again craving a new challenge within the company. I was keen to give the recruitment side a go, something I had never done before, and in January 2014 I became a Delivery Consultant for the Jenrick Engineering Burton team. That's what I love about Jenrick, there are never any barriers if you want to take your career in a new direction! I moved on from a Delivery Consultant into a Technical Consultant role with my key areas of responsibility being an Account Manager for our ever-growing client base.

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.
