We Adore Recruitment.

A project of passion

Adore Recruitment is an independent business formed by the current director in December 2013 – with nothing more than a laptop, phone and a huge passion for the industry.

That same passion has been driving the business growth ever since, with three office expansions and the formation of a strong team who can offer your business expert and flexible recruitment solutions.

Initially focussed on sales recruitment, Adore quickly expanded through reliable delivery of client needs into other sectors that all have dedicated recruitment expertise including administration, call centre, freight, logistics, industrial, warehouse, engineering and construction.

We pride ourselves on our high-quality internal processes that support our business, including an in-house payroll function, fully flexible recruitment solutions (temp, perm, contract, interim and FTC).

Our top class compliance accreditations includes ISO 9001, REC membership (Recruitment & Employment Confederation) and GLAA (Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority).

The growth of our company has been wonderful – but not as wonderful as watching our partner companies achieve their own success.

Let us help you find the right person for the job. Every time.
