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.

Introducing...

Julie Alton

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.
