Jen Richardson

Senior Consultant, Technical & Engineering - Cambridge Office

About Jen

​I ‘landed’ in the recruitment industry back in 2012. Before then, I’d worked in industries such as Medical Devices, Science, IT & Telecoms, Manufacturing and Production, so having had years’ of exposure in a plethora of technical environments, it seemed natural for me to recruit in those very same sectors and to be able to relate to the individuals I speak to.

I was born curious about “how things work” and, when presented with a job spec that looks a little alien to me, I’m the geek who hits YouTube, asks the questions, reads the papers, and quizzes my networks and friends. It means I’m always learning new things, which makes the job more interesting. I get excited about R&D and emerging technologies and enjoy having the opportunity to visit my clients and seeing what they do.

I care about my clients and candidates and am committed to providing a straightforward, reliable, honest service and developing long-lasting relationships. People describe me as being ‘straight-talking’, which enables me to gain the trust of those I collaborate with and helps us achieve results we are all proud of.

I joined The ONE Group in May 2021 and work between the Cambridge office and remotely. I enjoy the buzz of working with and learning from lots of talented recruiters, but equally enjoy working from my quiet little office at home, usually with a cat perched somewhere nearby.

My interests and passions (in no particular order!) include LGBTQ+, gender & diversity issues, social media marketing, mental health awareness, athletics, singing, travel (I’m a regular visitor to The Canaries!), CrossFit and cats.

If you’re looking for a recruiter in a specialist technical field, with excellent knowledge of the Cambridgeshire area, I’m available to help, so let’s have a chat!

'Jen is a conscientious and experienced agent who dedicates her time to help her clients through the interview process. To ensure they are fully prepared with her knowledge of the companies in question. One of the best agents I’ve dealt with in terms of interaction and encouragement prior and after interviews who doesn’t waver on going the extra mile and a pleasure to work with.' - Candidate
