Director (And Founder) Samantha started Adore Recruitment from scratch in Dec 2013 with a laptop, phone and a passion for the industry, a true passion that has been driving the business growth ever since.

Over the years since formation, Samantha has led the company through rapid business growth, recruitment of staff and three relocations, including our move in 2017 into our current bigger and modern premises over at Southfields. Samantha is still fully involved within the business, growing and developing the team and developing both new client relationships and overseeing the management of our loyal existing clients.

Finance Manager Michelle joined Adore, initially as a Temp, back in 2015 and hasn’t managed to escape since. She runs the finance function within the office, overseeing all aspects of accounts from payables and receivable through to payroll, reporting and compliance. Michelle has in excess of 16 years’ experience within accounts starting in the public sector, within local government, and then moving into the private sector, leaving her well versed for everything we throw at her. Her obsessive organisation habits and undying love of spreadsheets bode very well within her role and make her the go to person for all things Excel. Away from the office Michelle likes nothing more than relaxing with a good book, having an almost ‘geekish’ obsession with all things Terry Pratchett, or in contrast a gripping crime novel. On the flip side, whenever possible she loves a good day out at the race track (spectator only!).
