Hello! We are the Recruit 2 You Team... 

Anita Jackson MREC Managing Director 

We always start the day with a group meeting and a coffee! This helps to set the tone for the day and ensure that we are all focused on what needs to be achieved. We are not like a typical recruitment office, we do not have individual ownership of clients, we all work together to ensure every client we are working with is met with the highest standards of service possible.  
 
I love my job and I love coming to work, as a typical Libra I am people pleaser and so I always go above and beyond what is expected to get a result and there is no better feeling than the feeling you get from making a difference to someone life, when they get taken on permanently through a temporary assignment or getting to give the news of a job offer after a series of interviews, it really is the best feeling! 
 
Outside of the office I will always be spending time with my husband and children, we have recently moved to a new house and have a long-term project to work on, renovating a bungalow. Long term plans are to grow the business, my team are equally ambitious, and I want to encourage their dreams of progression to more senior and management positions. 

Jenna-Leigh Bates AREC Business Manager 

Background and experience... 
 
Recruit 2 You is owned and run by my Aunty and Uncle and we have worked closely to build the business together from early 2018. I started my career working for small recruitment firm locally as an Administration Apprentice and this gave me a good insight to the industry and so I was very keen to build something from scratch with my Aunty when she approached me about this venture. I have gone onto complete my Level 3 Business Administration NVQ and graduated in November 2019. From this, I was shortlisted to the final three apprentices to win the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ for the Derbyshire Times Business Awards – and subsequently went on to WIN!! This was a huge boost to my career and my confidence. 
 
Prior to starting work in recruitment, I was studying at Sixth Form, I did not feel like University was for me and so when I got an offer of employment following a successful work experience week at my past employment and grabbed the opportunity. I am excited about my future within Recruit 2 You and to see how the business grows, I am very proud of how far we have come to date. 
 
Outside of the office... 
 
On the weekends, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family – going for a Nando’s makes the weekend even better! I also love to visit new places in and around Derbyshire, going shopping is a bad habit of mine, especially when it is for a special occasion …!

Outside of the office... 
 
I have obtained my private pilot’s licence and enjoying flying light aircraft in my spare time, along with attended classic car events and spending time with my wife and family. 

Courtney Bower Senior Recruitment Consultant 

Background and experience... 
 
I joined Recruit 2 You with no experience in recruitment, after studying A-levels I found that university was not for me, I started searching for something that would give me stability and after speaking to a close relative who works within recruitment, I wanted to consider it as a career option. I consider myself as being ‘hands on’ when working and I am committed to doing my job to the best of my ability to allow me to further progress within my recruitment career. 
 
Outside of the office... 
 
Outside of work I like to spend my time with my family and friends, I also like to explore the Derbyshire area, usually going on walks or bike rides. I enjoy taking photos of places that I visit as photography is one of my hobbies. 

Katherine Tighe Recruitment Rescourcer 

Outside the Office… 
 
I enjoy spending time with the people important to me. I spend a lot of my time just outside of Derbyshire, travelling to new places. 

Tom Crabtree Sales and Marketing Consultant 

Background & Experience… 
 
Whilst I have no prior experience in Sales & Marketing, I studied Media Studies, Sociology and English Language at A-Level at Nottingham College, all of which individually contributed some level of understanding to me in the world of multimedia digital marketing, whether that be from a creative stance or more of an administrative one. 
 
Extending my knowledge further, I then studied Multimedia Sports Journalism at Buckinghamshire New University (based in Manchester), for 3 years. A huge part of this degree consisted of creatively trying to market to an audience using digital media, so in that regard, I am knowledgeable and experienced. 
As well as my educational qualifications, I also have years of experience in different job roles that practiced customer service, sales and hospitality. 
 
Outside of the office… 
 
Outside of the office, I love watching football, being a huge Manchester City fan. I also enjoy going out for food or drinks, and even shopping. If I’m not doing any of those things, I’m most likely playing FIFA or Football Manager! 
Olivia Barber 
Recruitment Consultant 
 
Areas covered... 
 
I joined the business in November 2021 as a Recruitment Consultant, working within the Temporary Staffing Team. In this role I support the team with additional staffing needs our clients require on a day-to-day basis, no 2 days are the same and this is what I enjoy about the job. My daily tasks range from promoting the roles we have available, searching candidate databases trying to find the right fit for our clients and meeting the requirements of the clients I look after. 
 
Background & Experience..
 
I started my recruitment journey in March 2021 doing in house recruitment within the health care sector, in this role I worked in two different teams (insourcing and general recruitment). I was recruiting for a variety of different roles from GP’s to Drivers, in my time there I felt I had gathered a lot of recruitment knowledge and wanted to take this knowledge and move into the agency side of recruitment rather than in house so I could expand my knowledge, be more hands on and kickstart my career in recruitment. 
 
Outside of the office... 
Outside of work I enjoy going carp fishing with my partner and photographing the different carp we catch, we plan on travelling around Europe beating our PB’s along the way.
