Claire is our Office Manager, HR Guru, Client Liaison, Top recruiter and all- round Wonder Woman.
With a background in Management and starting her work life as a Junior in a Travel Recruitment Agency at the age of 17, she has a wealth of experience in a number of sectors. She tells us she is still only 30 every year, we aren’t quite sure how!
Claire has also run a busy restaurant chain as a General Manager, and she is more than happy to make you a balloon hat or animal.
You will find Claire on her weekends off, still checking her emails, walking her 3 dogs, or driving one of her two boys somewhere. Failing that, sitting in the garden drinking a chilled glass of Chablis.
Billy is our all-round recruiter looking after various sectors including Construction, Administration, Management and IT.
He brings with him a wealth of knowledge, having spent his entire career thus far, in Recruitment. A highlight for Billy before joining us had been placing the Head of Information Security at Wickes, all in his first year as a recruiter. Impressive!
Out of office hours Billy will be found watching football, playing football or thinking about football, particularly, his favourite team Spurs!
Billy also loves the gym, and makes the rest of us feel guilty for eating clean and training mean whilst we just eat.
Jason is our Business Development Manager, and our all-round Michael Knight dealing with our new clients.
Jason has over 20 years of construction recruitment industry knowledge. He has worked his way through the ranks starting his working life as a Trainee Recruitment Consultant at the tender age of 21. Since then he has worked as part of successful recruitment teams that were responsible in suppling labour for the construction of all the major venues for the Olympic Park, Athlete’s Village and Westfield Shopping City from 2008-2012.
Jason spends his spare time playing cricket and karate and is besotted with his favourite football team – spurs!
With 25 years knowledge of the construction industry, Peter is our Construction Recruiter.
An ex-military man, Peter spent six years with the Queens Regiment and served in Northern Ireland, The Falkland's and Germany. After leaving the Army, he spent 10 years in Site Security managing teams at the BBC and for American Oil firm, Marathon Oil.
Peter enjoys the great outdoors, particularly camping and holidaying with his wife and two teenagers. He is also member of the Scouting Association.
He claims his favourite football team is Arsenal. We aren't sure if this is because he is a genuine loyal supporter, or if it is just to wind up Jason daily. We hope it is the latter.
Meet Sandra, our Accounts Manager. She has over 30 years of experience in Accounts and Payroll, two thirds of it being, at Abbey Personnel!
Anyone who has worked with us over the years, has probably crossed paths with Sandra at some point. However, don’t’ be fooled by the Snow-White exterior, she is Malnificent in disguise.
When Sandra is not at Abbey Personnel, or being our office mum, she is found at home being a mum to her two daughters, dog and often to her husband. Failing that, she will be found sunbathing at every opportunity whilst sipping on her glass of Tonic (well Gin and Tonic). However, she will never get tipsy as the saying goes... “Accounts do it without losing their balance”.
