When I left my first interview with Simon some 6 years ago, I walked out feeling incredibly excited and hopeful that I did enough to convince him to want me in the Girling Jones business. There were a few risks – relocating from London, joining a new company, not having a clue about the construction industry, however despite these risks, I was bought into Simon, his ambition, and the thought of being a part a new journey I found incredible appealing.
So 6 years later, I am still here, managing a team of 6 within the market leading construction recruitment business in the South West. It hasn’t always been easy, market challenges being at the forefront of this however as a business, we have gone from strength to strength. I have achieved personal career goals into a senior management role and have had the privilege of witnessing some huge milestones as a company, all in line with the vision we set out at the beginning.
The people are at the heart of any business and to work every day alongside individuals with the same passion, care and drive as you is priceless.
