Angela Jones is the HR Director for Sharpak at Yate and Bridgwater. She’s been with the company for nearly a quarter of a century, looking after all aspects of the business that relate to people, from making sure the right people are in the right place at the right time to employee welfare and training.

Faced with difficulties finding the right skills locally, Angela started using Justin Reynolds for her recruitment at the beginning of 2015 and since then has relied upon him to hire more than 20 staff, from setters to engineers and electricians. When Justin joined Kingston Barnes last summer, Angela continued her professional relationship with him as a recruiter, noting that both, “Him and James Kingston seem genuinely interested in building a long-term relationship, which is what I need as HR.

We don’t have an in-house recruitment team, so I rely on Kingston Barnes to be an important part of the business – I don’t have time to do everything!

“Justin fully understands the business, and has taken the time to do so through the relationship he has built”
