Emma Allard FIRP CertRP
Having moved to the Island from the UK, I first joined Hamblin in 2005 as an Executive Recruitment Consultant. After a short time out of the business to have my son Alex, I re-joined Hamblin at a challenging time with a remit to further develop Hamblin’s comprehensive portfolio of people related services – Executive & Permanent Recruitment, eGaming Recruitment, Temporary Staffing, HR Consultancy and Training & Development. I was then promoted to Managing Director in 2009 and given the unique opportunity to purchase the company.
Branching out into the Northern Corridor and London, I remain responsible for the overall management and further development of Hamblin, maintaining and building upon the Group’s position as the Island’s largest and most prestigious recruitment and employment business.
With over twenty five years recruitment industry experience, initially gained in the UK with major names such as ADECCO, Select Appointments in London and several years offshore recruitment experience there’s not much I haven’t encountered. Recruitment is an ever changing, diverse and challenging industry and I relish learning something new each day.

Recruitment Consultant, Temporary Division
Having commenced my career with Hamblin in 2003 in a variety of positions, I have been employed as a Recruitment Consultant within the Temporary Division for 9 years. This is a fast paced, ever changing and rewarding position. I have a genuine passion for assisting candidates, finding the right position to meet their individual needs, which can potentially lead to permanent employment and sourcing candidates through various means to client specifications.
I pride myself on my thorough and detailed approach, providing advice and guidance with key focus on my natural flair for customer service and relationship building.
Reception, Administration and Candidate Management
Having spent 18 years in the finance industry, I started working with Hamblin in 2006. I am a highly organised and experienced Administrator who on a daily basis deals with a variety of tasks involved in reception duties, administration and candidate management. I am the initial point of contact for clients and candidates alike, ensuring that they receive a first class experience when contacting Hamblin.
I joined Hamblin as Accounts Administrator in May 2018, bringing to the company many years of accounting experience from within the recruitment industry.
Following qualification as a Chartered Accountant in the UK I worked in a variety of managerial positions, firstly within the leisure industry and then for a recently privatised water company, prior to starting my family, at which point my husband’s work took precedence and we travelled as a family to far-flung places including Pakistan and the Caribbean as he furthered his career. As our children got older, I settled down with them in the UK and was fortunate to be appointed Accounts Manager for a niche recruitment consultancy in the field of science and technology.
Based in the Isle of Man for the last 3 years, I now relish the opportunity to be part of Hamblin’s support team, putting my experience and skills to use to provide a quality service both internally and to our clients.
