Our People


Jobtrain is very much a people business – and below we would like to introduce you to all the people who make up the Jobtrain business.
Jobtrain’s Mission is to “deliver pioneering technology that keeps people at the heart of recruitment”. Never is that more visible than when we look at our own people and how they endeavour to keep our clients, their candidates and all the agencies that use our ATS happy in their everyday use of Jobtrain.
