Innovation

Definition

Innovation can be defined simply as a “new idea, device or method”. However innovation is often also viewed as the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs.  Such innovation takes place through the provision of more-effective products, processes, services, technologies or business models that are made available to markets, governments and society.  The term “innovation” can be defined as something original and more effective. Source: Wikipedia

The commitment, care and drive each employee shows is echoed throughout the business to Director level.

Over 5 years’ experience, I specialise within Permanent, Interim and Contract Recruitment. Collaborating and working in partnership with our client-base and candidates to ensure a bespoke and personal service is delivered to each. 
The training, development and opportunities that have been presented to me during my time at JTA have assisted with my continuous development as a Consultant, a Leader and now a Manager. We pride ourselves in providing our teams with the tools, training and support they need to ensure our clients receive a truly unique service. 
During the Coronavirus Pandemic we have continued to put our customers and clients at the forefront of all we do. Providing support, guidance and solutions to the challenges they have faced throughout the lockdown. Offering 24/7 contact has allowed a great deal of our clients to find that reassurance that so many have been seeking. Sharing our knowledge, experience and insights to assist with their business recovery. We have adopted and rolled out new methods to ensure our clients have been able to continue business whilst ensuring compliant with government guidelines.

I commenced working for Jacob Thomas Associates in June 2015 and have always enjoyed the variety of what each day brings within my role. The time invested and training provided has set me up to be successful in providing expert customer service and ability to create recruitment solutions for the industrial and commercial businesses across the region. 
During these unprecedented times we are proud to continue to serve our customers, adapting alternative recruiting methods to ensure customer satisfaction and safety remains our top priority. From the first instance of COVID 19 being a threat to businesses across the country it was clear that our customers needed an extra level of support and reassurance. With so much cast into doubt it’s important for our customers to feel continued support despite the changes being brought in with working from home and social distancing. Our values remain the same, ensuring we are contactable 24/7 and to maintain the outstanding service which has ensured our success for the last 13 years. Working towards a brighter future for us and our customers is our passion.
When I’m not head down focussing on the next customer to serve I spend the rest of my time with my Fiancé Sarah and homeschooling our three children Noah, Barney and Blossom (Although I feel they now know more about the recruitment industry than the school curriculum at present).

Having been with Jacob Thomas since conception it’s now been 12 great years! I came from a long career within commercial aviation where customer service was paramount and can honestly say that the level of service Jacob Thomas provides its customers far exceeds that of which I was accustomed to in previous years. From the outset it was clear that the vision for the business was to provide the very best of everything it was involved in and this was truly refreshing. Watching the company grow from strength to strength, having been on the journey all the way, and seeing the Jacob Thomas family grow is incredible! 
I guess I would be described as someone with a mischievous sense of humour. I like to look at the positive things in life and love spending time with my family and friends. Being an Aussie I take great pride in showing all the Brits the true meaning of the word BBQ!!

Joining the Recruitment Industry back in 1997, I spent the first ten years learning my trade and sometimes having to learn the hard way!  My early career saw me get the sack, move companies for career progression and  being made redundant (not all at the same time, fortunately!), so I’ve had a fairly good exposure into other Recruitment Businesses and the pressures put on people in our Industry.

My redundancy was the catalyst to incorporate JTA and with ten years of working for different companies I was able to take the best bits from the companies I worked with and equally do as much as possible to remove some elements that just didn’t work for me. The primary aim right from the start has been to develop and empower at all levels within the business, which is quite unique within the Industry.

The company name by the way comes from our (Michelle and I) two sons.  It seemed the best motivator at the time and still encapsulates our company ethos today, this being one family.

In my spare time I can usually be found in a field with my spaniel and regardless of the weather, donning a pair of wellies!

Testimonials.

You have been looking tirelessly to find the perfectly qualified and experienced person.   “Never underestimate the power of a well done!”  

Danny

Hiring Manager

Always really helpful and try their hardest to keep work coming to you. Great communication and always keep me up to date with what’s going on. The fact Ollie went beyond the moon and back to keep me working during the lockdown was utterly brilliant and he’s a top lad for doing so. Highly recommended agency

Craig

Working Hard through Corvid-19

"We have been working with JTA for at least 3 years and have found them very professional and responsive when dealing with our recruitment needs. Unlike other recruitment agencies who seem to have a high turnover of recruitment consultants, which I find frustrating in that you never end up with a consistent consultant contact, JTA are clearly employing and sustaining a loyal and consistent team which makes a big difference to the client. Would recommend to other companies.”
