Lisa Jones

Director and Founder

I help recruitment leaders, their recruiters and marketers generate more speed and pipeline

I have worked in recruitment for nearly 20 years.  I’ve loved every minute of it, even in 2008 when I started Barclay Jones, slap bang in the middle of a recession!

I started in recruitment as an IT Director, where my team and I won the coveted Computing’s “IT Department of the Year” award. I have a passion for systems / process and smiling recruiters (I married one!)  

As well as running Barclay Jones, creating the strategy, and content for our Recruitment Training Portal - Recruitment HIIT, I coach recruitment leaders and sales leaders, and mentor their marketers to deliver strategies to generate leads, opportunities and sales.  

What do I get a kick out of?

I get a real kick out of improving recruitment and marketing workflows through systems (and common sense). Using systems like Bullhorn, Herefish, and Adapt, and other recruitment tech which saves recruiters time and generates more pipeline is my goal. I'm keen to generate phone and face time for recruiters. This has been a mission of mine since the early 2000s when “get on the phone” was the mantra in the recruitment business I worked in. 

Midget gems with a Guardian of the Galaxy

I’m a bit of a “give a go” kind of girl - I can't sit still!  I have run the odd marathon, am attempting my first triathlon this year, and would love to be able hip thrust 180kg before Christmas!  I absolutely love movies – and can quote most of the Star Wars films. I am loving getting my prenager into my most loved movies from the 80s and 90s. 

My ideal day would involve going for a run with Chris Pratt (and my whippets), before settling down to eat midget gems and drink gin in front of my favourite film, Aliens.
