Melika has been working in the recruitment industry for over 8 years. She started her career with a large corporate agency, working her way up to manager before making the decision along with her business partner Dean to set up Adkins & Cheurfi. For any permanent recruitment requirements Melika is the lady to call.
An AFC Wimbledon fan originally from London, Dean is a former musician and Chef. He got on the wrong train to Newcastle years ago and never left. A real people person, he soon realised he was a lot better at recruitment than he was in the kitchen.
Senior Front of House Consultant
Originally from Sunderland, Ashleigh has spent the last 5 years in London working in the hospitality industry, providing staff to some of the city’s top venues. When not working can most likely be found with an espresso martini in her hand.
Liam is responsible for managing all of the chefs and kitchen porters working in the pubs and restaurants we supply. It’s possibly because of his love of pub food and an insatiable hunger for cheeseburgers, however, that Liam has opted to go with an older photo of himself from back in his slimmer days.
Originally from Hartlepool but now based in Gateshead, Cath has a background in hospitality management spanning over 30 years. Working in some of the North East’s premier hotels and venues, Cath has developed a skill for finding great talent and building great teams.
Now, at Adkins and Cheurfi, Cath is now managing the business in the North West, covering Cumbria and the Lakes. If you have any requirements for hotels, pubs or restaurants give her a call.
Head of Payroll and Accounts
A huge Rod Stewart fan and Makem, if you need any help or assistance with your payroll queries, Susan is the lady to call
Stan may not be the sharpest member of the team, but he makes up for it with all the love and hugs he gives out, but only if you can wake him up!
Reuben is the wildcard of the team. Whenever he arrives in the office the room falls deafly silent and waits nervously to find out exactly which Reuben it is we’ll be greeted with. On any given day he can range from snoozing in his bed and chilling out to picking fights with Stan the very next second. He is yet to turn 2 though and which of us can truly say we behaved impeccably at that age?
