Name: Kelly Jones
Job title: Performance & Training Manager
About me: I recently relocated home to Yorkshire after living in the Middle East and SE Asia for 8 years… the draw for Yorkshire Tea and good gravy was just too strong. Love to travel and explore different cultures. Keen interest in literature, theatre and I love live music. Not much of a gamer but have two mini people at home whose love of Minecraft provides me with an on-hand screen time babysitter 😊 Love Jurassic World Park Builder and prone to whiling away an hour or two on Gardenscapes.
What I do: As Performance and Training Manager, I’m lucky enough to work with all the team here at Aardvark Swift. With over 15 years’ experience within the Recruitment Industry, I provide mentoring and guidance to all consultants on BD Planning and Implementation and try to impart daily wisdom to the newbies we bring into the business. My role is really varied here – which I love! I’m involved in everything from internal recruitment to planning and managing our stand at Toy Fair, and our shindig afterparty! A major part of my position here is finetuning our internal recruitment process and making sure the team are equipped with the skills and structure to do a great job 😊
