Meet The Founder

Annabelle has a wealth of experience within Recruitment which spans more than 20 years so you can be assured that she will always go over and above to provide the very best levels of service and support.  

She started her career in a much less glamorous sector where she recruited for a garlic bread factory with 5:30am site inductions. This was a challenging but great place to start and has kept her grounded ever since although she doesn’t miss wearing the safety shoes, hair net and goggles! 

Annabelle moved in to commercial recruitment for many years where she worked with public and private sector organisations recruiting high level volumes of staff for one of the UK’s leading bank and energy provider. 

After moving on to start a commercial recruitment division from scratch she proved that she could build a successful business for someone else and was encouraged by her clients to go it alone and set up her own business in 2015. 

With a strong consumer passion for all things Beauty this is the area Annabelle decided to focus on and she still loves it as much as the day she launched her business.

Price Promise

After working for several agencies during her career Annabelle was surprised at the disparity between fees being charged. 

Most agencies work on a sliding scale and the higher the salary the higher the percentage charged. 

Annabelle was also surprised that different clients were being charged different fees for exactly the same service. This seemed both unfair and unethical. 

It was important that when Annabelle set up her own business that she worked with integrity when it came to charging clients. 

She couldn’t imagine one client having a conversation with another to find out they were being charged a higher fee. 

Annabelle decided that the fairest way to charge clients would be to have 1 fixed fee for each and every company, so all positions across all departments are a fixed fee of 15%
