Jeff Bagnall Authorised High Court Enforcement Agent and Manager of Penham Excel High Court Enforcement Department

Following retirement in 2001 after being involved in a Police vehicle RTA in 1997 I decided to try to gain a few qualifications by attending college as I had been a Police Cadet since the age of 16 in Birmingham and had few qualifications apart from ‘life skills’.

As a result of going to college I gained a few City & Guilds qualifications mainly in computing and at the same time taught myself how to do web sites - designing numerous on a voluntary basis (which is still the same today!!)

Anyway second careers are not always what they appear to be and my successful career after retirement was at the third time of asking - and purely by chance!

First of all I went to work at a bus company in West Bromwich as Quality Manager and assisting with the paperwork and enquiries following road accidents.  Sadly, quality was non-existent and within six months I was gone!  Bus drivers really are very interesting characters!!!!

The next job after a few months of being out of work was with a haulage company in Cannock but who had depots throughout the Country.  I was to be their training officer on procedures and road traffic laws but soon got promoted to National Security Manager.  This was an experience in itself as more goods went out of the back door of depots than came in through the front!!  Not long after the company went in to administration/liquidation - not surprisingly really.  Job number two had now gone and again I was out of work for the second time in twelve months after being in the Police for over 30 Years without an issue.

Third time was a little luckier - I saw an advert in the local newspaper for a vacancy as a bailiff (as they were called then) working for the Under Sheriff of Staffordshire collecting debts in relation to High Court Writs.  In 2007 the law changed and the whole set up of enforcing Writs was changed resulting in the Under Sheriff cease operating locally and joined with a Company operating a Nationwide service - fortunately for the first time in my life I heard about TUPE.  I was taken on by the new company and promoted to Regional Bailiff Manager covering most of the Midlands straight away.

Since then a new Company was formed and I am now the High Court Enforcement Manager at Penham Excel - based very local to where I live.  This Company is a very pro-active company and not only deal with High Court matters but the whole spectrum of civil enforcement.  Fortunately, I am office based using my knowledge of High Court Enforcement rather than being ‘on the road’.
The role is very different from the Police but is very challenging at times - keeping the grey matter ticking until  my next retirement.

If you require my services for debt collection or other things like commercial rent recovery, travellers on your land - just give our office a call or look at the web site (which I did not design) which is www.penhamexcel.co.uk
