Recruitment Consultant - Leicester

My background in recruitment

I started my recruitment career within the health and social care sector, supplying carers for children and young people in the East Midlands. Having had success in a challenging market, I wanted to try my hand in something with a technical aspect. This is why I chose to pursue a career in engineering recruitment which I've been doing since 2017.

What I do at ATA Recruitment

My job as a Recruitment Consultant is to help clients to hire Maintenance Engineers or Maintenance Managers for their manufacturing and automated sites. I support both SMEs and blue chip businesses and have strong relationships with some of the UK's largest construction material groups, logistics companies and manufacturers.

The best part of my job

The thing I most enjoy about recruitment is the satisfaction when you have found a candidate their perfect role, or a client their perfect candidate after they have failed when using other avenues to find employment/recruit. It is a nice feeling when you hear that you have actually listened to what they want and have been able to deliver.

What I do when I'm not in the office

Outside of work I enjoy spending time with friends and family and can be often found at the local pub socialising or walking my dalmatian Izzie. My main passion is football and I regularly play 6-a-side. However, being an Arsenal fan my weekends are now full of sorrow.

Client feedback

"Aston Kenny is the best recruiter I have ever met. I have been actively looking for a career in the robotics automation industry for the past four months and was contacted by a number of recruiters, but my experience of working with Aston was exceptional. He is a person who knows how to do his job, from the very first contact until he successfully placed me into my current role as an Engineering Technician, he consistently supported me with the applications and updated me every day after the interview. He was very much approachable and provided highly professional service."
