Nick RawlinsDirectorAbout Me
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!
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.

The communication was amazing kept me up to date weekly sometimes even daily, strong communication through email, text most importantly by call.
I would not hesitate to recommend JT to a company that has staffing needs or to a candidate looking for their next challenge.
