Able Personnel was the vision of Julie Lawrence, Managing Director who started the business in 2004 from a small one man office in Birmingham. Julie already had over 15 years recruitment experience when she started Able Personnel and her vision was to focus purely on offering clients high quality candidates based on truly understanding the training market, culture and needs and never a one-size-fits-all approach.
With a passion for quality and operating with a culture of respect, Able focused on delivering effective recruitment solutions with clear communications to both client and candidate. Their reputation and business grew.
Through pure recommendations clients came back again and again, impressed by the levels of service they received. Candidates felt comfortable working with an agency that really knew its market and recommended colleagues.
Today Able Personnel works with the UK’s leading training providers (some for over 15 years). With substantial offices in Solihull Julie and her team are well placed for covering the UK and offering a dedicated recruitment service to candidates and clients based on an unrivalled knowledge and understanding of the training and work based learning sectors and many other disciplines/sectors headed by knowledgeable teams.

What Our Clients & Candidates Say About Us
Finding someone with the right skills and abilities is one thing but finding someone who is the right fit is another and this is something we have been able to do by working with Julie and her team at Able. For the last 15 or more years, in my various roles as hiring manager Julie has got to know our team and our culture and this means, that when we are presented with a candidate, we know that they have been carefully considered for our business and they haven’t just got some key words and qualifications in their CV.
We are very selective of who we use when recruiting for our team as we look for more than just ‘terms of business’ and have developed good working relationships with Julie and her team over the years of which has allowed us to be open, honest and frank about candidate selection.
Able Personnel have always been one of the best recruitment companies I have ever used. They are always friendly but very professional at the same time. They are fully aware of my requirements as a manager and the candidates that they send through have always been vetted before reaching me and have the right attributes for the role I am advertising. Julie Lawrence especially has always been a pleasure to deal with and nothing is too much trouble for her*
