WHAT A WONDERFUL JOURNEY!
We are sad to say Jill Cole, our beloved Recruitment Director, has announced her retirement from the day-to-day running of the Herefordshire based business.
Jill has been instrumental in taking an initial business concept discussed at the kitchen table, into what is now, 15 years later, a well-respected international business with a truly global reach.
Jill and co-director Bob had an ambition in those early days to build a business that would be regarded as an outstanding provider of specialist project management, recruitment and risk consultancy services. That mantra was achieved by embodying their goals into the very fibre of the organisation.
Over the last fifteen years Jill has developed both the business and her own skills within it. However, being the caring person she is, the area that will have probably given Jill the most personal satisfaction will be the support and personal assistance she has given to the many individuals that have been employed within or by the Minimal Risk Consultancy during her tenure, as they progressed in their own development and careers. She has also been instrumental in the development of welfare and proper employment packages for their overseas operatives and on a personal level supported numerous charities close to her heart.
Jill did not stop there – whilst developing the Recruitment Management System that has been integral to success of the business today she has negotiated three office moves to facilitate the successful growth of the MRC and dealt with the many obstacles that any growing business has to overcome daily, particularly one in such a complex sector as security.
It is for these reasons and so many others, Jill will be enormously missed as a colleague, friend and valued supplier by so many. Jill, although not working within the business will help in the transition of her accrued knowledge and skills to her eventual successor, in what has now under her tutelage, become one of the most successful and developing businesses in its field.
Jill’s son, Greg Cole, has recently and publicly thanked his mother for all her hard work and guidance, particularly over recent months as she supported the team though some high profile projects and events.
