Sixty Eight founder Abi is a hospo veteran turned seasoned recruitment expert. Starting her hospo career collecting glasses then developing to general manager, she landed safely in ‘people’ around 15 years ago. People development and creating dream jobs is her passion and what she doesn’t know about northern hospitality recruitment, isn’t worth knowing. Oh and she loves a campaign or two, fighting for the betterment of the sector whenever she can.

Charlotte joined the business as MD in May ’21. Prior to making waves for Sixty Eight, she was the people director and formerly operations director of northern trailblazer Mission Mars, developing the award winning Alberts Schloss and Rudy’s brands. As a former client, ‘CK’ knows only too well the challenges operators face, which has undeniably helped shape our straight-forward, high impact approach.
