Maggie Hockaday

Managing Director

I have been the proud owner of Penns Personnel for over 30 years, working very much hands-on within the team and carrying out all aspects of the recruitment process and management of the business. Prior to this I had three years’ experience working for the largest international Recruitment agency at Area Management level, inspiring me to go on and develop Penns Personnel. Myself and the team here at Penns pride ourselves on delivering a very personal and individual experience to both candidates and clients. Our candidate testimonials really make me proud of Penns and its success.

Chris Kelly

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Following a 20-year career in employer marketing and a break to spend time with my young children, I joined Penns Personnel around nine years ago. In essence my main role is to source the best talent aligned to the needs of our loyal clients. But for me it’s also about helping candidates – supporting them every step of the way. It can be challenging and indeed daunting in such a competitive space but I do my absolute best to help as many candidates and of course clients to make the process seamless, whilst maintaining honesty and integrity. At Penns we all genuinely work hard to find and build relationships with both candidates and clients alike. We thrive in this competitive marketplace by sourcing the right people for our highly regarded and respected clients.

Debbie Greenfield

Senior Permanent Consultant

With 25 years of recruitment experience working for Penns I can honestly say that it was for sure the best career move I made from secretarial to Recruitment specialist. I am always happy to help and give my full attention to both my clients and my candidates alike. I like to treat people as individuals. Love my job!
