Jim graduated in 1989 from Birmingham University’s Department of Civil Engineering. In search of the ideal career Jim worked as a lifeguard, a chef, a motorbike courier and a salesman until discovering recruitment in 1999. Jim progressed through the ranks from Consultant to Sales Manager and Sales Trainer. In 2004 Jim teamed up with fellow Consultant Nick Lewis to set up Penguin Recruitment with the objective of creating a company both hard working and energetic but also supportive and fun. The name Penguin was chosen as an embodiment of our ideals – hardy, brave, dependable and fun.
Jim’s specialist recruitment areas are Civil, Geotechnical and Geo Environmental engineering. Outside of work Jim is a keen surfer and has represented Great Britain and Wales in Stand Up Paddle surfing at both the World and European Championships. Jim owns two large, badly behaved Collie dogs.
