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

Michelle RawlinsDirectorAbout Me
Having worked in a customer service role for 10 plus years and Education for 10 years, inspired by our children, Thomas and Jacob, Nick and I incorporated Jacob Thomas Associates in 2007 to provide a workplace that develops all.
The team are a delight to work alongside and would probably say that I am focused, driven and determined with high expectations, however, has a good, maybe dry sense of humour, is supportive, encouraging and always needs a cup of tea in hand.
I love the outdoors so gardening and hiking are a passion. Before the big “50” I would like to complete the coast to coast walk, following Wainwrights footsteps. I enjoy researching the history, culture and differing architecture of the countries I visit whilst travelling. For relaxation, reading a good book or watching the latest box office movie is a must and ‘if the hips allow’ a jolly good boogie.

Team JTA entered 2020 with strategic intent to grow and develop Teams to have greater inter-dependancy, our plan was simple but effective and the strategy was on track throughout the bulk of the first quarter.
The 23rd March 2020 saw dramatic change, driving intense focus and challenge on the business and our brilliant Team. Whilst there is no good time for a pandemic, for us at least, we had already commenced the process of greater core skills evaluation including departmental accountability with our Leadership Team and the challenge they faced could never be replicated in any classroom, it was their time to stand up….. And boy did they stand up…. They Shone!!
Never before have we displayed such positivity, grit and determination to do the right thing by our Workers, Candidates and Clients which has been recognised by so many people, organisations and customers; during difficult times this has provided immense core strength.
Reaffirmation of our business model has been achieved, so many of our clients, new, old and prospective, who were previously serviced by multi-site operations have commented on the consistency of Service throughout distressing and difficult times, which drives us even further forward.
The one thing, if anything, I have learnt throughout this period is that, we really are ‘working towards a brighter future’… for ALL!
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!

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 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.”
Extremely helpful in assisting me with my recruitment process for my current role. I was able to adequately prepare and was eventually successful
