Who we are and how we began...
Founded in 2013, we are are a small, family orientated, dedicated and highly experienced team spanning two offices on the South Coast of England and Wales. We recruit both temporary and permanent roles within the Office and Professional; Engineering and Technical; and Industrial and Driving sectors.
Maxine, our founder, started her career in recruitment as a consultant in temporary work at a high street corporate company and was rapidly promoted to branch manager. It was when she left to join a regional owner-managed agency, to cover for a manager’s maternity leave, that Max’s career took off.
Once Max's colleague returned from maternity, the MD offered Max the opportunity to stay and set up a new Office & Professional division. Max says, “I worked relentlessly setting it up with my colleague, and together, we developed many enduring working relationships that remain today.”
Whilst running Office & Professional, Max spent two years working with the Industrial division at the agency; her role encompassed new business development, client management, staff development and mentor.
When the agency was sold, Max took the opportunity to join the new owners to set up a branch in Wales, also helping to develop a Commercial desk across a number of branches up and down the UK. It was at this point, Max decided to work for herself, and with a strong vision for a different way of working, she set up Amour.
