We are in the people business — we source top talent, help clients retain employees, and invest in their success. We connect ambitious businesses with the very best people who share the same values.  

For a new business owner, there is often nobody to teach you how to find and retain good staff or what the best practice is in recruitment for your sector. It is something you have to pick up along the way, in-between learning how to analyse budget forecasts, serve customers, do marketing and have a life outside of the business. Oh, and throw a pandemic into the mix and you have a recipe for disaster.

Finding quality talent is a tedious process - it can be timely, expensive and stressful. The average time to recruit any position can go into the months sometimes years! Posting on job boards can run up bills into the thousands very quickly and with our results. When you are finally successful employing someone, you then have the added problem of ensuring you can retain them too! It is delicate relationship that needs to be nurtured. The payoff for getting this process right is exponential. 

At the Admin Shop we tackle all of these problems in an easy way that is fun and gets results. 

Our recruitment service delivers qualified candidates who meet the requirements of the role, and are excited about the opportunity. We work alongside owners to develop a recruitment strategy and can provide as much or as little education into the recruitment process as desired. 

Once the candidate starts work we can provide an informal but structured series of regular coaching sessions that focus on guiding the candidate through any challenges that may pop up whilst working towards helping them to realise their strengths. For our clients this means our candidates are engaged, productive and the issue of retention is no longer a worry. 



Listeners. There is a reason that the term listen and silent both contain the same letters! We actively listen to what our clients tell us (and do not tell us). 

Empathetic. When we take on a client we wear the same shoes that they do so we can truly feel and appreciate their situation. This is one of the secrets to the great results we achieve.


Relentless. Accountability is imperative in everything we do - especially when it comes to finishing the job. We take ownership of our work and correct mistakes to the greatest extent possible. We don’t stop until the task is complete, no matter how great the challenge.

Resilient. We recognise the world is constantly evolving. We believe we can make an impact with each relationship that we establish. We strive to continually drive positive change.

Great hiring is a complex process

We know there are a million different recruitment companies out there. Each business will tell you they are different from the last one. It can be difficult to tell the one that is going to be home for you.


So, instead of talking about ‘uncapped commission’ and ‘flexible working’ how about we give you some good, usable information to help you see what makes us stand out from the crowd? We’re an independently owned, unconventional, but very cool recruitment company. Our vision is to be the best at what we do, and that also means being the best place to work. 


We want to create an environment where it never feels like Monday morning. In fact, we want to create an environment where it does not feel like you are at "work". 


We’re supportive, we’re approachable, and we’re adaptable. We want to provide the best environment that works for you. You’re more than just a number and a target here, you are the future of this business, and we align our goals with yours, to ensure that we all succeed together. It’s that simple.
