Sam Stanley

Sam Stanley

Managing Director

Having worked in recruitment for 10 years Sam opened NLS Recruitment in the Summer of 2017. Having seen how both national and local independent recruitment agencies work he has taken best practices and implemented them with NLS, giving us a strong work ethic and direct focus on our candidates and clients. 

When Sam isn’t telling anyone who will listen (and some who won’t) about NLS he can be found at home with his young family. 

He is an avid Chelsea FC fan and below average golfer, although that doesn’t stop him trying!

Samantha Stanley

Samantha Stanley

Operations Director

Samantha joined us in the summer of 2018 having previously worked within the recruitment sector for the last 10 years. She has extensive experience in Industrial, Office Support, Commercial and Engineering Sectors and vast local knowledge.

When not glued to her phone and laptop, Samantha can be found at home with her young family enjoying a bottle (or two) of prosecco watching the latest box sets.

Lee Stanley

Lee Stanley

Admin & Compliance Manager

Lee has been a member of staff since we opened in the summer of 2017. Moving from being the I.T. guy to a role as our admin and compliance manager, taking responsibility for multiple tasks within the back office. He is still our fountain of knowledge when it comes to all things tech.

When not at work Lee enjoys catching the latest movies at the cinema and enjoying the garden in his first new home.

Hannah Donohue

Hannah Donohue

Recruitment Consultant

Hannah joined the NLS team from a Car Hire background, she was so successful as the NLS account manager we had to have her on our team.

She is still learning the trade but is first port of call for most drivers here.

Having recently been a first-time buyer in the home market, Hannah can be found living the dream in her new home, usually with drink in hand.

Emmy Hutchinson

Emmy Hutchinson

Recruitment Apprentice

We’re extremely pleased to introduce one of our newest starters Emmy.

We’re excited to have her here working with us and are looking forward to seeing what she’ll accomplish with the NLS family.

When not here in the office you’ll catch her either being the social butterfly she is down the pub with her friends and family or walking her dog called Ralph!

Rupert Stanley

Rupert Stanley

Chief Office Mascot & Entertainment Manager

Our most important member of staff is of course Rupert. He is only 2 years old but is already taking the recruitment world by storm. He cheers the team on to success and allows for some much needed cuddles and playtime during the day.

When not in the office Rupert is usually running his Mum and Dad ragged in his playroom, eating anything in sight and watching his favourite movie Sing! On Repeat. Making us sing the songs.
