Recruitment Manager - Permanent

My background in recruitment

I have worked for ATA for over 7 years, specifically within the maintenance and service Sector. Initially specialising within the food industry, supplying to some of the largest food manufacturers in the UK like Bakkavor and Princes across multiple sites. In 2015 I was promoted Assistant Recruitment Manager, at first in charge of just two consultants. Over the past 4 years I have grown the team to 8 Consultants, again being promoted to Recruitment Manager, covering the Midlands and South.

What I do at ATA Recruitment

I am responsible for managing ATA Leicester’s Maintenance and Service Division for Midlands and South. We have a proven track record in recruiting for one-off maintenance and service roles, right up to full contingent recruitment projects for over 100 hires, spanning Electrical, Mechanical and Multi-Skilled Engineers, Maintenance Technicians, Senior Engineers, plus Maintenance Managers, Supervisors and Team Leaders.

The best part of my job

I am a huge Engineering geek and talking to both Candidates and Clients about the engineering they are working with every day has always fitted in well with my passion for machines. One of my biggest joys is passing on this knowledge and experience to our Consultants to give them a massive technical advantage over nearly all of our competitors.

What I do when I'm not in the office

I love Motorsport, and I'm obsessed with all things cars! I am also a certified Blacksmith and keen Drummer (5 Piece, Djembe, Toms, Bodhran).
