Adele has worked in the recruitment industry for pretty much her entire life! She started out with a major plc where she rapidly moved through the ranks to become the youngest area manager on record. Following this she ran a 60 branch independent network before taking the plunge in 1994 and starting her own business. By her own admission this was probably one of the scariest things that she has ever done (and she has had 5 kids and had jumped out of an aeroplane at 12,000 feet!).

“After years of managing other people, getting back to the sharp end dealing with employers and candidates at first was terrifying – would I be able to do what I had spent years training others to do? I needn’t have worried, my view that recruitment is not rocket science was reinforced and it was evident that so many people were getting it wrong. By simple caring more and trying harder to get people what they want, my business was a runaway success”
