The JHR Team

Sophie Whiteley

Senior Resourcing Consultant

Sophie joined JHR team in October 2019 to train as a recruitment consultant within the temporaries team. Having settled in quickly to life in recruitment, Sophie has become a key ‘go-to’ contact for 100’s of temporary works throughout Yorkshire and has great relationships with some of JHR’s highest volume temporary clients in the region.

Since leaving education, Sophie had worked in a variety of customer focused roles and knew this was the line of work she wanted to be in. Before starting her career she traveled around Indonesia,  Australia and worked overseas in an orphanage in Ghana and as a travel rep in Crete, before joining the JHR team.

Sophie is an integral part of our temporaries division, working closely along side our Temps Divisional Manager to support and develop the growth of the division.

Sophie is a sociable character and enjoys spending her spare time with friends or in the gym.

Trivia fact: Sophie once got up at 3am to trek up a volcano in Bali to watch the sun rise over the island!

  • My experience with the agency thus far has been nothing short of impeccable. I've been in search of work for over a month, and with assistance from the Jo Holdsworth team, I can finally say that my tedious task of job hunting has come to an end. It has been less than one week since my initial point of contact with Sophie and she has already secured me a position catered to my interests. Not only has she proven to provide adroit service, she also looks the part and does everything with a smile. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone looking to get back into the working world.
