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.
Nick RawlinsDirectorAbout Me
Jacob Thomas Associates has just turned fourteen 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 fourteen 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!

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 country.
During 2020 we weathered the storm of COVID 19 and have come back stronger than ever. From the first instance of COVID being a threat to businesses across the country it was clear that our customers needed an extra level of support and reassurance. We are proof of standing firm throughout and we are proud to continue to operate with a strong team driven to provide the best service to our new and existing customers.
Our values remain the same, ensuring we are contactable 24/7 and to maintain 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.

Freddy GentBusiness Development ManagerAbout Me
I joined JTA for a short while back in 2013 after leaving college and started as a Trainee Consultant. Since leaving the business I have been working predominantly within B2B sales and development roles supplying a number of products and services.
Fast forward 7 years and I have found myself back to the place my career started – a professional team with a real family ethos (the reason I have come back). I am really excited to be back working for the business as I have a passion for the success of the business and I know the great things we can achieve for our clients but also for the future of JTA.
I am back in the business in a new role and I will be managing the Business Development team to ensure we can continue with the excellent services we provide to current clients but also explore avenues to service new clients so they can experience the excellent customer service and supply of qualified staffing solutions we offer.
Outside of work you will most likely find me sat by some water trying to fish.. or out surfing (not in Leicester obviously!)

‘I have recently joined JTA as a Trainee Consultant, with almost 4 years experience working within the recruitment sector. My goal at JTA is to become a qualified consultant which would be a step forward in my career. Although I haven’t been with JTA for long, I feel like part of the team already and I’m certain I can achieve my personal goal in a timely manner, with the support of my colleagues. I am very much family orientated, and enjoy cooking Caribbean food in my spare time. My friends would describe me as patient, considerate and talkative. Going above and beyond is what I’m all about’

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
