Anne Ranahan - JGP Resourcing

Resourcing Consultant, JGP Resourcing

Why did you become an Enterprise Adviser?

I am excited to be an Enterprise Adviser as I am committed to guiding young people in career options. I have previously worked with schools on interview skills & preparation and as mentioned above, I regularly mentor students seeking apprenticeships, study in F.E. & H.E. and those pursuing employment opportunities.
I have first-hand experience of seeing the difference a good and supported system of work placements, support with preparation of application forms, support with CVs and practice interview sessions for employment or access to further education can have for individual students.
I have experience of managing student placements within Birmingham Leisure Services; I completed a piece of evaluation on the students who were accessing placements in Birmingham Libraries, Museums, Parks and Leisure Centres and I have been responsible/part of large graduate recruitment campaigns whilst working for JGP Resourcing for organisations like Hackney Homes (graduate Housing Officers); Wokingham Borough Council (graduate civil engineers) and the Land Registry (Registration Officers at multiple sites across the UK).
I have experience of working in partnership with Bordesley Green Girls School, Washwood Heath School, Holte School, Birmingham University and Queen Alexandra College for Blind and Visually Impaired. This involved working with students on understanding person specifications, writing CVs, interview practice and full day assessment days with feedback. I currently support St. Peter’s RC School, Solihull with Year 11 interview practice days and interview practice for University placements for Year 12 students.

What do you enjoy most or are you most looking forward to in your role as an Enterprise Adviser?

I am looking forward to working with a School and supporting their students access opportunities in the world of work which will give them the next steps on their career choice. I never forget that each student is an individual and I welcome the opportunity to support individuals develop in their career path.

Overview of your chosen career or career pathway to your current role.

I am an experienced HR practitioner, specialising in recruitment. I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel & Development, with 30 years’ experience across a range of employment models. I began my career in the Personnel Department of Birmingham Library Services as a HR generalist, progressing to a resourcing lead role within the City Leisure Services Department. Focusing on roles within Museums, Parks, Leisure Centres, Adult Education and Libraries, I specialised in advertising, recruitment & selection and training & development. I joined the senior management team of Birmingham’s Corporate Recruitment Team, taking a lead role in introducing an integrated recruitment service for the City Council.
Throughout my career, I have supported alternative routes into employment, for instance as lead HR officer for Library NVQ. I have ensured that mass volunteer recruitment initiatives are ‘future-proofed’ to offer CV strengthening opportunities, a high-profile example being the stewarding cohort for the U.S.A. Olympic Athletics training camp at Birmingham University in 2012. More recently, I have focused on mentoring students seeking to enter workplace apprenticeships (Technical Design), as well as those seeking further & higher education and employment opportunities.
I currently work for JGP Resourcing as a Resourcing Consultant for senior officer public sector appointments and large-scale graduate recruitment campaigns.
