Welcome Jenny from JD Recruitment

We’ve bagged a superstar in aftermarket recruitment!

The team at Glen Callum are proud to announce that Jenny Harris (Formerly Jenny Danks) of JD Recruitment has joined the Glen Callum Team.  Further strengthening our Automotive Aftermarket knowledge and expertise.

Jenny has worked in Automotive Aftermarket Recruitment since 1995 when she was a member of the Canto Consultancy team.  Jenny has a vast amount of industry knowledge and recruitment expertise having gained diplomas in Recruitment Practise and becoming a member of the Recruitment & Employment Confederation (MREC DipRP).

As a successful member of the Canto Automotive recruitment team she placed candidates with companies in the automotive aftermarket throughout the UK including motor factors, distributors, OEM’s etc., and successfully met targets each year, winning various holidays due to her achievements.

In 2001, Jenny took a brief break from the Recruitment industry securing a position as Sales Executive with The London Badge & Button Company based in Birmingham, selling bespoke goods to retailers such as Harrods, military establishments etc., honing her knowledge in sales on the “other side of the fence.”

With her love for recruitment yearning Jenny returned to the recruitment sector again in 2002 setting up from scratch an automotive division for Concept Recruitment.  Following this Jenny decided to set up her own recruitment business and in May 2003 with the support of her partner, Peter Harris, JD Recruitment was established.

JD Recruitment recruited for the automotive aftermarket throughout the UK, successfully providing candidates to motor factors, distributors, retail, garages, OEM’s etc.  J D Recruitment experienced year on year growth and became a recognised recruitment agency within the sector, successfully being chosen as preferred supplier for several companies.  In 2015, Jenny married her long-term partner of 26 years becoming Jenny Harris and they continued to run the business together.

With Jenny facing the increasing developments in recruitment technologies and the solitude of working outside of a team environment Glen Callum’s Directors made a timely approach to Jenny.  Knowing her exemplary ethics, industry knowledge and recruitment expertise and with Glen Callum needing to expand their team due to an increase in enquiries a meeting was set up to see if there was an opportunity to work alongside one another and embrace Jenny into our team.

We have pleasure to announce that after some deliberation Jenny said yes and officially joined the Glen Callum team on the 4th September.  Hopefully the “strong industry knowledge and team ethics” of both Jenny and the rest of the GCA squad ensure we now have an even more powerful automotive aftermarket unit ensuring we remain top of the league for aftermarket recruitment.

So welcome Jenny to the GCA team and may you have many more successful years in automotive recruitment!

Jenny welcomes enquiries from both existing JD Recruitment clients and candidates alongside new enquiries and she can be contacted at 01384 485274 or jenny@glencallum.co.uk
