ABOUT USWe are a professional Beauty Recruitment company
“Annabelle’s intention has always been about providing the best personal service to both clients and candidates.”
Annabelle has a wealth of experience within Recruitment which spans 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 banks 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 has moved on to extend this to working with Fashion and Lifestyle brands. Please do get in contact for more details on the services that we provide.
PRICE PROMISEAs an independent Beauty Recruitment Consultancy
“Annabelle is a strong believer in providing an excellent service at an affordable price”
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. As an independent Recruitment Consultancy our overheads are much smaller than our competitor’s which means we can pass the savings on to you. We are therefore much more affordable than our competitors and represent fantastic value for money offering one fair and simple fee of 10% across all positions* and departments. *Please not Director level positions are charged at 15%
CLIENTS“We truly value both our clients and candidates on an equal basis. One is worth nothing without the other”

CV WRITING SERVICE
It has never been a more important time to have a strong Profile and CV in order to stand out from the crowd. Essentially a CV is a document that is selling your experience, expertise and suitability for a ream of roles that you may be applying for. It is also a platform to be found by recruiter so in both instances it has to reflect your strengths and why a company should hire you. Most people feel uncomfortable singing their own praises or blowing their own trumpet when that’s exactly what you need to do to be noticed in a crowded market place. Annabelle Charles Associates Ltd are experts in this field. Through a detailed consultation we get to know your strengths, skills and personality and translate that in to a CV that will get you more noticed. We start with an initial Zoom chat followed by a review of your current CV. We then get you to answer a number of bespoke questions to draw out your USP’s. Finally we make the necessary revisions and sent you a copy of your new CV.
The cost for this service is £100 which is refundable should we place you with one of our clients.
Please get in touch if this is something we can help you with.
