Laura Jenkins

Recruitment Manager

I have been working within Recruitment for over 12 years now, time really does go so quickly! The recruitment I have been involved with varies across Agency and Internal, which I feel gives me great platform to provide Clients & Candidates with excellent customer service moving forward.

Background

Straight after school I went to East Midlands Airport, working on the check in desks shortly followed by becoming an air hostess flying from Gatwick for a few years - I knew that providing people with first class customer service was so important to me. In 2006 I began a Marketing & Sales Assistant role – An introduction to the world of office based work, where I gained so many skills which would enable me to have a great career working closely with people, gaining and maintaining relationships.

Following this I achieved my first recruitment position in 2008 and I never looked back! Providing clients with the best service possible, I worked for a couple of agencies where I gained experience in Transactional, Commercial, Engineering and Industrial Recruitment.

I worked with three companies dealing with their internal recruitment, ultimately providing line managers with some excellent candidates. It was a great experience however my love for working with numerous companies never left me, I just needed to find the right company to allow me autonomy to provide clients and candidates with my style of recruitment. Which brings me to 2020, joining 2fawcett. I truly look forward to working with old clients and of course new!

Interests

You can often find me doing gym classes and keeping fit! Spending valuable time with both friends and family along with Bev, my fabulous pooch! She is a huge part of my life.

Amy Saunders

Senior Recruitment Manager

I started my working life as a lawyer, working in property and litigation. Following a career break travelling around Asia and Australia, I decided on a change and embarked on a career in recruitment.

Having trained with the world’s largest recruitment firm, I moved into professional services, specialising in Accountancy & Finance. After 8 years climbing the ranks in large regional businesses, building successful recruitment teams, I took the opportunity to move to Toronto, Canada where I worked for one of Canada’s largest construction companies. This is where I found my passion for all things infrastructure and construction! I was fortunate enough to be involved in several projects in Ontario, both from a recruitment and operational perspective, building bridges, highways, and LRT.

In 2021, I returned to England and having worked with Anna-Maria previously, jumped at the opportunity to launch 2fawcett’s Infrastructure & Construction division. I love the culture at 2fawcett, particularly the ethos of empowering recruitment. Women represent only 11% of the workforce in construction and I will be proud to play even a small part in helping build a better future for women in construction.

In my spare time, you will find me either on a golf course (I have an incredible drive but it’s all downhill from there!) or walking my English bulldog, Hank! I am also a keen skier and Scuba diver. If the weather isn’t so great, you’ll find me in the kitchen cooking for the family, baking or making my legendary chilli jam!

Background

Joined the Army at 16 before working in Health and Fitness, Sales and most recently Recruitment.

Spent 2 Years working at Derby County Football Club, in Sales & Events.

Moved in to Recruitment, in 2017 beginning as a Resourcing Consultant, progressing quickly to Recruitment Consultant within the Logistics and Supply Chain Industry.

Interests

I am an avid fan of Football and Golf. When I am not playing these sports or in work I am generally keeping fit and running in the gym or socialising.

Becky Bradley

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Hi I'm Becky!

I am enthusiastic and bubbly with a love for working within recruitment and why wouldn't I?
I enjoy building long lasting relationships by guiding and supporting job seekers in finding their dream career all whilst working in partnership with employers across a variety of different industries. For me, what I do is much more than just a job and I couldn't imagine doing anything else!

Background
In 2014 I found myself graduating from De Montfort University, shortly after I was given the opportunity to work for a global agency as an administrator and resourcer. Very quickly I found myself bitten by the recruitment bug and was promoted to consultant and the rest, as they say, is history. Fast forward 7 years, one multinational corporation and one independent agency later and I'm still as passionate about this industry as the day I started.

Interests
Outside of work you'll either find me with a gin glass or dog lead in my hand!
I am a dog mum to a sassy Patterjack called Maya, I love to socialise and spend all my spare time with family and friends and, as of this year, I am a mentor for a charity who support and empower young women.

I am looking forward to joining the vibrant team at 2Fawcett so please, don't be a stranger and come say hi!

Annabel Hotchkiss

Recruitment Consultant

Hi there!

My names Annabel, most people call me Belle though. As an enthusiastic, bubbly, dedicated and energetic individual. I pride myself on building long lasting relationships. Don’t be a stranger, feel free to drop me a message if you are looking for a new and exciting role in engineering!

Background:
My sales journey started in the sports industry. From Sports & exercise science at university, to PT and sales consultant at a gym in Essex. After working alongside Redbull I found myself with a natural aptitude for sales. After the pandemic I decided I preferred keeping my gym activities as a hobby for myself and focus on my passion for sales roles helping people. I took my first steps into the recruitment industry and haven’t looked back since - ‘Choose a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life’.

Interests:
As you’ve probably guessed, fitness is a huge part of my life. Normally its lifting weights, exploring mountains or riding – although the only thing you will see me not doing anytime soon is running! If you can’t find me at the gym or stables, try the local bars with a few of my friends.

Georgia Shaw

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Im Georgia!

I’m just returning to the wonderful world of recruitment after having my second baby girl. Having this time away has made me realise how important it is to work for a company who offers a fantastic supportive environment to work in and having worked with Mia in the past and seeing what she has built here at 2Fawcett I really cannot wait to start!

I have worked within recruitment for 7 years now. I pride myself on the fact I have long standing relationships with my clients and candidates alike, having only ever worked within the Office Support industry. I believe I am able to offer you the best knowledge and support.

I like to work incredibly efficiently whilst managing my clients and candidates expectations!

Outside of work you will find me spending time with my gorgeous girls and my husband! We also run our own business so all of that together definitely keeps me busy! That’s why we absolutely love our holidays and at any opportunity I will book even just a night away to have some time away from the craziness ✨

Charlotte Higgins

Office Executive

Hi I'm Charlotte!

Whilst studying at university, I simultaneously worked in a customer service environment, and gained brilliant transferable customer service skills. Shortly after graduating, in 2017, I joined a large National Service in a busy administrative workplace; where I gained insight into the importance of providing an excellent service in order to reach goals, I have worked closely with lots of internal and external clients, which I have greatly enjoyed!

After getting in touch with the 2fawcett team, I discovered the business to be an exciting, hard-working and personable company. I am friendly and approachable and always strive towards providing an optimal, comfortable and enjoyable service and environment for all clients.

Interests
I enjoy walks in the Peak District, spending time with family, socialising with friends, cooking, music, and the occasional glass of bubbly!

I have been by Anna-Marias side since I was born, and that’s nearly 4 whole years ago.

When I turned 1 and when Anna-Maria started 2fawcett, I naturally became the Cute Furry Officer.

At work, I am literally that, a Cute Furry Officer where I keep people entertained with my cuteness.

The right people for your business.

For ten years we have successfully placed candidates across a wide range of industries and roles.

Struggling to find the perfect match for a specialized role?  Our unique combination of experience, a trusted network of contacts and a genuine human touch can make the difference.

Anna-Maria has worked with me over the last 8 years and I have found her to be extremely professional and helpful when I have been recruiting. She has been able to find me varying levels of candidates that always matched the profile for what I was recruiting for at the time.

Head of Planning & SystemsLogistics Company

Laura is a professional and driven recruiter who can manage multiple projects at any one time with ease. She is personable with exceptional eye for detail.

Material ManagerNordics Business

Having worked with Laura for nearly a year now i have been extremely impressed with both her knowledge and proactive approach to the recruitment industry - she takes everything within her stride and always with a positive and upbeat attitude - its been a pleasure!

Operations DirectorAutomotive Industry

Anna-Maria has been working with me for the last 6 years and has always managed to find the right candidates for my department needs, she also makes a personal visit on a regular basis to see the team that she has helped recruit. I would highly recommend Anna-Maria for your recruitment needs.

For Candidates

The right role for you.

We have a wide range of roles from trusted employers. We match each and every candidate with great care to the right role.

We pride ourselves on building lasting relationships and will always be here to support you and your career opportunities.

I was contacted by Anna-Maria about a position via email, which are normally bland and in-inviting but her wasn’t! It was full of information about the position, warm and friendly. I emailed her and after a short conversation she had explained everything to me. Unlike most recruiters she kept in touch all the way with a weekly phone call and updates, which gave it the personal touch that you’re not just a cash cow but a person. On my first day she checked in with me once I’d finished and upon arrival left me a beautiful care package. Even though she helped me get a role over a year ago, she still keeps in touch with mail to work. Highly recommend recruiter if you don’t want to feel like a number and a person who matters.

MichelleServices

I cannot recommend 2fawcett Recruitment enough. Since losing my job last year due to COVID-19, Laura and Anna-Maria have done everything they can in searching for the right company and role for me. Both are very professional and thorough. Communication was 10/10.
Whilst the search for my next move was in progress I was placed in a temporary assignment by Arran, who was also professional and on hand to answer any of my questions.

Overall 2fawcett do exactly what they say... they empower others.

MichealaFMCG

I can’t recommend 2fawcett highly enough. Both Anna-Maria and Laura were amazing throughout the entire process of looking for my current role. They really took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for and what I wanted in my new role. The communication from both was brilliant, throughout the process, keeping me fully in the loop at every stage. The team supported me throughout, giving brilliant information on the company and the role, which is so important when researching an organisation. They also supported me on speaking to another recruitment team on a role I turned down, which I was not expecting!

Since I have started my new role I’ve had the pleasure in dealing with them on multiple occasions for additional roles that we’ve filled here and again have found their attention to detail, attitude and effort to be second to none.

I’ve also worked with their sister company Max Workwear and, not surprisingly, have found exactly the same high level of customer service there too!

SteveManufacturing Company

I cannot recommend Anna-Maria highly enough. She has great ability to be both friendly and professional and took the time to understand my requirements. I had a pre meet before my interviews and follow up call afterwards. I never had to constantly chase her as she was always proactive. My experience with Anna-Maria was excellent.

Group Procurement ManagerLogistics Business

I have had the pleasure of knowing Anna-Maria for the past 2 years. Anna-Maria is a detail oriented, pro-active professional with a deep proficiency of solutions. Thanks to her interpersonal skills and good humour she has a great relation with both company clients and employees. I strongly endorse Anna-Maria.
