Greater Manchester Recruitment Company Breaks Stereotype

Greater Manchester Recruitment Company Breaks Stereotype

Over 25 years ago, Nick Bradley began his recruitment career in a local, SME recruitment agency at 11 Ambassador Place in Altrincham. He was joined shortly afterwards by his now business partner, Lee Knowles. During their time at Ambassador Place, they saw the business become a global company with over £650m turnover whilst being schooled with a particular set of business minded values and knowledge that they still hold to this date.

Now, Nick and Lee are founders and owners of Adepto Technical Recruitment. Established in 2015, Adepto have grown in size to a £10m turnover business in just four years. A size similar to, at the time, the business in which they began their careers in recruitment.

As part of their aggressive growth plan, they have now gone full circle and purchased the very office at 11 Ambassador Place where their journey began. Former boss, Geoff Lloyd, was the guest of honour as the Adepto team hosted clients, candidates, former colleagues, friends and family at their official office opening party on the 17th September 2019.

Nick Bradley, “When we started off in recruitment, this is where started. We were schooled here in this very office as business minded people. Now, we are looking to bring in like-minded people, from local graduates to senior consultants, to share this journey with us."

Moving from a small, 800sq ft office to their new 2,500sq ft big enough for a team of 40-50 people, Adepto have grown from a small business to a team of 13 in the last four months.

Together with fellow Directors, David Arnold and Robert Collier, Nick and Lee are now looking to instil the same values and beliefs they have carried with them throughout their careers in to local people and give others the chance have a career in recruitment.

The directors at Adepto see recruitment as a career. Doing things differently in recruitment, Adepto invest heavily in to internal and external training and development of their people, looking to shape the future leaders of the business and the industry.


Adepto Technical Recruitment Ltd is a specialist engineering, manufacturing and scientific recruitment consultancy that focuses upon the provision of permanent staff and contract resource to the UK and European Chemicals, Life Sciences and Highly Regulated Markets.
