About Us

Being locally and independently owned since 1989 and not being part of a franchise allows us to be flexible to meet our clients' and candidates' every need

Meet The Team

My name is Anne Marie Hanna and I am the Managing Director of Ability Plus Ltd.

With over 20 years’ experience in recruitment I am very familiar with the staffing needs of businesses in the Island and I like to get to know the people behind the businesses we work with.

I have a ‘hands on’ approach when it comes to recruitment; directly engaging with both candidates and clients and matching their needs. 

I am a highly motivated, ambitious individual, who thrives in a high-pressured environment and this flows over into everything I do, including my passion for physical fitness. 

I build friendly, professional relationships and all my business networks find me to be easily approachable when looking to recruit. From providing leading employers with the staff they need, to finding candidates the right job that fits with their lifestyle, I am extremely proud to be able to facilitate long-lasting relationships.

Monique Vorster
Senior Recruitment Consultant

My name is Monique Vorster and I am a Senior Recruitment Consultant at Ability Plus Ltd. 

Since joining Ability Plus in 2013 I have had the ability to forge exceptional relationships with my clients and candidates, calling on my experiences on having been on the other end of the recruitment process myself.

My strengths are being able to identify talent, work to tight deadlines and think creatively within the recruiting process, this has strengthened my recruitment experience and time with Ability Plus.

As a result of my ambition, hard work and dedication I have been promoted to Senior Recruitment Consultant. I really enjoy my job and am passionate about continuing to build my career in the recruitment industry.

Working for Ability Plus I am able to source the best talent as well as possessing a natural flair for truly understanding my client’s needs and am therefore able to supply the Island’s leading businesses with the best candidates. My focus is always putting my candidates and clients above anything else. 

We do things differently here, we are not a conventional recruitment agency and we never planned to be. I always place trust in the Ability Plus recruiting experience - where people come first.

I am also responsible for ensuring our client database is up to date, creating job advertisements and confirming interviews. My duties can vary on a day to day basis and I need to be ready at all times to help our consultants with anything they need.

Have a quick look at what some of our fantastic candidates have to say about us
  • I found Ability Plus to be the most personable and helpful recruitment agency I have ever been signed up with, and that is across both UK and IOM agencies. They found me a temporary job almost instantly upon moving back to the island and then provided me with a tailor-made service to secure me in a permanent position that finally suits me and that I enjoy. I am extremely grateful; especially to Monique who went above and beyond to keep in touch with me and find me the above-mentioned roles. I continue to recommend Ability Plus and I remain blown away by the experience provided to me.

  • Ability Plus is a very professional placement agency. They spent time talking to me about the type of job that I was looking for. Ability Plus went through job interview techniques and made sure that I was ready before they arranged job interviews. Every job interview that was arranged for me was for the type of job that I was looking for. In fact the job that they placed me with offered me a permanent placement after the second month of the three month trial.

  • My experience with Ability Plus has always been positive and helpful. You listened to what I wanted but also knew what would suit my profile. I was reluctant to go for the role I am currently in as I didn't think it was the right job for me but after reassurance from yourselves I am lucky enough to be with a business that I'm proud to be a part of and enjoy working there.

  • Earlier this year I was unexpectedly made redundant.  Ability Plus came highly recommended and on registering with them it was easy to see why. Most of my contact was with Monique but the whole team were helpful, friendly and supportive. As it was 9 years since my last job interview, Monique helped me to prepare for potential interviews which was a huge help and I was lucky enough to be offered a new role within a week of registering. I have now been in my new position for almost 3 months and I absolutely love it.  Ability Plus helped me to find the right job for me....not just any job!

    W. Oates

  • I went to Ability Plus a little over a year ago, I wasn't 100% sure at the time I wanted to move but I was starting to feel like I needed a change, Monique was incredibly helpful and immediately put me at ease, she offered me a few options, one of which I was keen on progressing and seeing how it went.  The process was great, I was kept well informed throughout, I was told about every step I would be going through during the hiring process, and not once was I left wondering what was going on.  A year on and I love my "new" job, I feel I was incredibly well matched to the company which is a good skill to have as a recruitment agency!

    In short I would definitely recommend them if you're thinking of a move.
