Recruitment is personal and is often about winning hearts as well as minds.

We are in the relationship building business and this demands high levels of trust, integrity and engagement.

Confidentiality and honesty are the foundations of every client assignment we undertake.

Whether temporary or permanent, we interview every candidate personally and undertake rigorous reference checks and induction processes to ensure that nothing is ever left to chance.

We actively promote a culture of three-way feedback from our candidates and clients to keep us challenged and fresh.

About Us

We are a leading recruitment consultancy servicing three niche markets: Catering & Hospitality, Pubs, Bars & Restaurants and Commercial. Founded by Paula Rogers over twenty years ago, we are driven by one question: how can we help you?

Our entire reputation rests on the personal relationships we hold with our clients, our candidates and our staff.

What makes us different?

95% of the permanent candidates we place stay in their positions for more than twelve months – showing our strong track record for getting it right first time.

We have the insight, sector knowledge, experience and contacts to connect clients and candidates.

Loyalty is also important to us so we never, ever head hunt from within our existing client-base.

HOW CAN WE HELP YOU? What We Do For over 20 years Admiral Recruitment has provided permanent and temporary personnel at all levels within the catering and hospitality sector and wider commercial markets. We know the business of recruitment from the inside out. We understand the sensitivity required. Our focus for clients is getting to know and understand your culture, strategy and vision to ensure a perfect match. For candidates, it’s about supporting your career aspirations and maximising development opportunities.
