This week marks the day that, 20 years ago, Greg Holden and Leigh Jones (our illustrious leaders) took a monumental leap and started Holden Jones Financial Recruitment. On the 20th November 1995, two adventurous, eager young men took the keys to their new office, plugged in their computers and picked up the phones for the first time as masters of their recruitment agency. They were hungry to make placements and get Holden Jones moving – they could never have known that what they started would lead to such a successful, prosperous organisation, that two decades later would be comprised of teams of dedicated professionals, operating from offices across the south east.
Over the years we have set, reached, and surpassed many incredible milestones. In 1996 we announced our official support for the charity, Shine (for sufferers of spina bifida), which we continue to fundraise and support to this day. After five years of operating we were growing at such a rate we opened our second branch, based in Basingstoke, followed by the Wimbledon branch in 2002. We expanded furthest ill in 2012 and opened our central London office in Waterloo.
We have achieved a great deal, but the work is not done yet! For those we have helped into dream jobs, and for the companies we have assisted to grow for twenty years, we thank you for your custom, loyalty and faith in Holden Jones. We hope we are able to continue to live-up to the high standards of service and professionalism that you expect and that we value so dearly, and we wish for nothing more than you continue to choose Holden Jones as your preferred choice in recruiter.
Lastly, and most importantly, we would like to thank the entire Holden Jones team, past and present. Without their hard work, dedication and commitment to our goals and causes, we would never have been the success we have over the last two decades. Our business is nothing without the people that work within it and we value every team member.
