Speaking about her new role, Samantha said: “I absolutely love HiB. I have been welcomed by every employee and feel I have settled really well. It is great to see that the company is growing and I am excited to support the team with evolving future plans. The culture clearly shows that HiB support all staff with wellbeing and development. Seeing how HiB supports every employee is a breath of fresh air and I am proud to say I am a part of the HiB family.”
As part of her responsibilities, Samantha will be recruiting a number of positions to strengthen HiB’s teams across its London Head Office, Tamworth-based National Distribution Centre and new Ireland office, as the company experiences record-sales figures and continued growth.

Her recruitment experience is invaluable in helping us continue our search for talent that will enhance our growing workforce. At HiB, we’re proud to have been ranked as the 3rd best company to work for in the manufacturing sector, 24th best mid-size company to work for in the UK and in the top 20 firms in the West Midlands in 2022. Employee experience is hugely important to us and to be able to have Sam’s expertise in-house as part of our team will be a fantastic help to us as we look to the future.”
