I started Girling Jones in serviced offices down in Exeter, with a fresh pad of paper, a spring in my step and pocket full of hope.

That was 10 years ago this week.

We can’t celebrate at the moment and even if we could it probably wouldn’t be appropriate but I would like to say a big ‘thankyou’ to the clients and candidates we’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years.

I’d also like to recognise all the brilliant people who have worked for Girling Jones and helped build the business we have today. What memories we have.

Our tenth year has been our most challenging but the team of Girling Jones stalwarts has helped steer the ship through the choppiest of waters, with unfailing positivity and determination and we have well and truly made it through to warmer climbs.

What a fantastic bunch you are and I love every minute working with you all.

….and finally to my wife, Emma, for all the love and support.

Thankyou my darling x x .
