Cogent Staffing is very pleased to welcome Jade Lodge to the team. In her role as Business Manager, Jade will be focussing on growing the business in Wakefield and the South Yorkshire area and ensuring clients and candidates receive an efficient service that benefits them.

Jade has over 2 years of experience within industrial recruitment, having started her recruitment career as a Trainee Account Manager at an industrial recruiter based in Leeds. Shortly after starting as a trainee, Jade progressed into a Recruitment Consultant role, working with industrial clients and candidates across Yorkshire.

Sam Gaukroger, Managing Director, said, “Having experience of industrial recruitment and building strong relationships with candidates and clients makes Jade a brilliant asset to the team and our clients. She will play a key role in successfully growing our presence in Wakefield and ensuring we are the most effective and efficient we can be.”

Jade added, “Having spent my career within industrial recruitment, I’m excited to be able to use my skills and experience to concentrate on developing Cogent Staffing’s offering in Wakefield. Personally, I really enjoy building relationships and working in a fast-paced environment, so this is a brilliant growth opportunity.”

“My aim to grow our presence in the Wakefield and the South Yorkshire area and support both new and existing clients.”
