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

Nick & Michelle RawlinsFounding DirectorsAbout Me
Jacob Thomas Associates has just turned fifteen and it is a constant delight to look back over the years in recognition of all the great work that the business has achieved for all those it has touched. We have assisted countless people and businesses to achieve their goals, whether this has been on a temporary basis, or assisting with their next long term career or workforce planning strategy.
The years have taught us that our most valuable asset is our Team, who are now shaping the future of the business and in whom we have complete confidence. Their ability to rise to any challenge has far surpassed the owners expectations allowing us to strategically plan for the future. Since inception, we have always believed that we are ‘working towards a brighter future’, and fifteen years on, this is still our vision.
As owners, our mission for the people within the Jacob Thomas Family is simple, create leaders, fulfil their ambitions and have fun whilst doing it!
Having worked in both a customer service role and education, inspired by our children, Thomas and Jacob, Nick and I incorporated Jacob Thomas Associates in 2007 to provide a workplace that develops all.
The JTA team are a delight to work alongside and it is a joy to oversee their progression.
I would say that I am focused, driven and determined with high expectations, with a good, albeit perhaps dry sense of humour, supportive, encouraging and always in need of a good cup of tea.
I love everything outdoors, gardening and hiking have been my passion for years and in my downtime, reading a good book or watching the latest box office movie is a must.
Tim SuttonDirectorAbout Me
Having been with Jacob Thomas since conception it’s been an amazing journey! 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 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!!
Ollie HoodDirectorAbout Me
I commenced working for Jacob Thomas Associates in June 2015 joining as a Trainee Consultant and have progressed my career through to Business Centre Manager. It’s fantastic to work for a company who are growing and for owners who share its workers’ ambitions not only professionally but personally.
I have always enjoyed the variety of what each day brings within my role. The time invested and training provided have set me up to be successful in providing expert customer service and the ability to create recruitment solutions for industrial and commercial businesses across the country. The team and I pride ourselves on honesty, trust and accountability providing the best service to our new and existing customers.
Our values have always remained the same from when I walked through the door on my first day, ensuring we are contactable 24/7 and maintaining the outstanding service which has ensured our continued success. 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 our three children Noah, Barney and Blossom. Avid Leicester City fan, petrol head and live music fan.
Jacob Rawlins CPDDirectorAbout Me
Being with JTA since late September 2019, I have had the luxury of a range of opportunities in multiple areas of the business to further strengthen my professional and personal development floating around in multiple departments, however, most significantly with the enrolment and successful completion of Financial Management and MBA Essentials CPD courses with LSE have tailored my confidence in my role as Financial Controller. JTA has offered and given me many life-changing key skills, experiences, fundamental values, morals and a deep understanding of business.
JTA continues to offer amazing support with such an environment unparalleled in the industry, one that is encouraging and uplifting, with individuals whose heads are always held high. JTA is unique with a strongly knit team with fluid cohesion and flexibility and I am excited to be part of the future and the journey of JTA: working toward a brighter future… Since 2007!
I am a quick-witted dry-humoured individual who spends the majority of his free time either cooking, working out or experimenting with photography. I enjoy many many genres of music, collecting vinyl and whenever possible, I progress my guitar and piano playing.
You have been looking tirelessly to find the perfectly qualified and experienced person. “Never underestimate the power of a well done!”
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
Working Hard through Covid-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.”
Extremely helpful in assisting me with my recruitment process for my current role. I was able to adequately prepare and was eventually successful
