Mploy Staffing Solutions has used Paul Jacobs as a facilitator, advisor, sounding board and trainer for many years. Paul has assisted Mploy through a period of rapid growth and has acted as a mentor to the board empowering us to expand our business in a profitable and focused manner. Paul is approachable and honest but at the same time manages to retain a sense of humour which we have found to be refreshing and inspiring. Paul has been a key part of Mploy success and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

During "lockdown", Howard and his colleagues presented on the weekly REC webinars covering a wide range of support for agencies during this difficult time. Although we have been in business for many years, we were immediately attracted to Howard’s no-nonsense approach, his enthusiasm, knowledge and boundless energy. Having accepted a complimentary hour session with him to discuss our company’s vision and plans for the future we have never looked back.  It’s no exaggeration to say that since meeting Howard it’s been a total game-changer for our business!   He is a genuine guy who truly gets under the skin of your organisation, is inspirational and delivers his training and coaching techniques with a passion that’s both challenging and rewarding.

“Better days are ahead, business is picking up and there is a buzz of excitement in the air. But this time last year it was a different story, lock-down, stay home, don’t see family or friends, couldn’t get a shopping slot, and limited to an hour walk a day – you couldn’t write it. As a small business owner, I felt alone and quite frankly scared, I had to put on a brave face for my team but I was isolated and having to make discissions that I never dreamt I would be faced with, the permanent market died a death overnight and the majority of our temporary workers were told not to go to work until further notice. Out of the blue, I received a call from Howard, I will be honest his timing was perfect, I was struggling and the support I had from him was second to none – even though I did not engage his services he kept regular contact with me and still does.   He was caring in a genuine supportive way and made me see things in a different light, it was not all dome and gloom. I looked forward to the weekly webinars – they gave me a sense of hope for the future and that we would come through this challenging year stronger than ever and we have. I’ve learnt so much and continue to do so; thank you Howard the work you and your team do is informative, supportive, and thought-provoking.”

Thank you Paul Sharpe for your assistance with the recent tender, your help was invaluable.  Our brainstorming session on the first day pointed me in the right direction, helped me gather my thoughts and formulate a plan.  Your passion and enthusiasm for working with SMEs is infectious and we look forward to working with you again soon.

Having Paul Jacobs at my side I feel empowered to really make an impact on our industry and set out what I have always wanted to achieve. Howard's training has helped me develop a more structured environment for my new team and I have learned so much myself. I will never forget our first mentor session with Paul, I left feeling, empowered, inspired and so excited about our future. I would strongly recommend using a mentor, it can be a lonely game as a business owner! But now having Paul and the team at Jump Advisory Group on my team I feel supported at every corner. With Paul as a trusted partner the future of T.T.S 24-7 Ltd has never looked brighter.

I have benefited from Paul Jacobs' trusted experience and advice in recruitment and leadership for over 8 years. His overriding skill is in understanding the unique aspects of our business and our people, and tailoring the advice and strategies to suit. Between us, we ALWAYS end up with a better solution, or strategy than we were hoping to achieve at the outset. Paul has seen and done it all in recruitment (valuable!) yet he is always looking for new ways to bring better results (invaluable). He is the most supportive adviser and trusted friend.

Paul Jacobs is an empowering coach who encouraged me to look within myself and realise my potential. He is authentic, enthusiastic and perceptive and his coaching techniques helped me to become more commercial, more resilient and to always aim higher than I thought I could achieve. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul to anyone looking for a genuine business coach and trusted advisor.

The Marketing Forum Paul has been running has been absolutely invaluable. Not only is it insightful and has given me a chance to learn new skills and develop on ones I have, but it’s given me the opportunity to learn with, and from, my peers across the country. The Forum is a chance for a group of recruitment marketing professionals to share ideas and best practice in a safe and non-competitive environment. You truly will not know what you’ve been missing out on until you give it a try. Paul oversees the forum, enables us to take part and has been very helpful as a mentor to me individually as well. His extensive experience and knowledge is only outweighed by his enthusiasm to share it and for all these reasons I highly recommend Paul Sharpe and Jump.

Jump Advisory’s webinars are so good for any recruiter who wants to continuously keep mastering their craft. They allow you to keep up to date with the best practices in the job. They are engaging and easy to watch, and in my opinion, they are up there with any paid content on recruitment training.

Howard reached out and offered valuable advice and guidance which has helped us to navigate and drive positive results despite the current economic challenges. I have been genuinely impressed with Howard's knowledge and expertise within the recruitment industry, he cares passionately about people and doing business the right way which is both inspiring and refreshing! ”

“The leaders at Jump truly ‘walk the talk’ and have given their time and expertise to help motivate, inform and teach those seeking to be the best in the recruitment industry. Having access to their wealth, breadth and depth of recruitment industry experience, knowledge and business acumen is not only priceless but also their style is reassuring, encouraging and focusses on not only what really matters but what you need to do to achieve. Starting Jump in the midst of Covid-19 the founders have consistently demonstrated their genuine commitment of being true to their own vision and purpose.  They are providing a much needed service to help professionals in the recruitment industry achieve the best.

Fantastic organisation and business offering. We work with Howard Greenwood who is an oracle of knowledge on all things recruitment and business. He also used to be quite good at chasing eggs apparently too, but I only have his word for that!

I would highly recommend working with the Jump team, they are really easy to talk to and make you feel really comfortable. They really know their stuff when it comes to building successful recruitment business’ whether that is a lifestyle business; or a £MM organisation. Working with Howard over the last few months has been really helpful, from personally never even had experience managing a team, let alone running a business; Howard’s knowledge, training and mentoring has been invaluable. If you want to feel at ease but also gain so much knowledge and experience from some of the best guys in the business they are the ones for you.

I have been speaking with Paul Sharpe on a regular basis over the past few weeks. I am having to make some big decisions given the current climate and it has been great to talk these through with someone who is outside the business and totally objective. He has not only given me confidence in my ability but also challenged my thinking. I’m really enjoying working together and look forward to continuing the relationship.

Paul Sharpe has been a great help and we look forward to working with him on future projects and the weekly lockdown webinars have offered some great topics. Give Dave a call even if 1% of you thinks you could benefit from having someone in your corner! (unless you work in Technical Engineering Recruitment - if you do bugger off he is ours!) :-)

My dream is to leave a bag of crisps unattended around a certain Mr Sharpe without them getting crushed... No, but seriously, any of your clients are lucky to work with someone as positive, inspiring and motivating as you.

Dave has been a fantastic member of our exec team over the last 2 years +. He has helped us focus minds on growing the business rather than just running the business! He has an innate ability to challenge your assumptions whilst respecting and understanding the culture + values of your business. Dave is a great mentor, advisor and his years of operational and board-level experience have played a significant part in the strategic decisions that brought about a quadrupling of our Perm revenue. He has also offered invaluable guidance to us in achieving our goals to scale our legacy contract business. The wider offering of the Jump Advisory Group team has also been very valuable.
