About Jay

Firstly, how have you been with Service Care?

Since August 2012.

And what does your day-to-day role involve?

My role is to manage the Construction & Social Housing Divisions, ensuring we provide a market leading recruitment service to our candidates and clients across the UK.

Give us a brief overview of your professional background...

I've previously worked for the Department for Work and Pensions as an Executive Officer.

If you weren't in recruitment, what would you be doing?

Growing up I always thought being an Apache Pilot was the coolest job out there.

Using only 3 words, how would you describe Service Care?

Aspirational, energetic and welcoming.

What is your favourite quote/best piece of advice you've ever been given?

Life isn't something that happens to you, it's what you make it to be.

Lastly, when you're not in work, where can we find you?

Enjoy clay pigeon shooting, watching most sports and having a nice Malbec.
