Adele enjoys a long history with Gallowglass Security. On first coming to the UK from South Africa in 2003, Adele worked for a brief period in the Gallowglass Security office, before joining a London law firm who specialised in Immigration law, before returning full time in 2006 in an administrative and credit control role.

In addition to her office based responsibilities, she qualified as an SIA licensed door supervisor. Following the acquisition of this license, she has been involved in an immense variety of assignments as a security guard. This has ranged from live outdoor event security, corporate entertainment and AGM’s, through to the gritty end of security as a door supervisor at clubs and pubs.

In particular she distinguished herself, for her calm, but no nonsense approach, as part of a team charged with keeping in order one of North London’s most notorious and troublesome nightspots.

This security experience has been invaluable, in that Adele understands implicitly, the Gallowglass Security ethos and what is required of security guards at Gallowglass Security; and this has been a logical stepping stone and progression to her current levels of responsibility.

Presently she enjoys a wide ranging and pivotal remit within the office as Office Manager. Her chief responsibility is as head of HR, including being responsible for the administration of TUPE transfers. To that end she has qualified to OISC Level 1 in immigration law, and has secured a level 5 Diploma in Human Resource Management, that has been validated by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development. (CIPD.)

This has equipped Adele to undertake the right to live and work checks in the UK, and administer our robust screening process to British Standard 7858:2013 , and her approach was described upon external inspection as being an example of, “industry best practice”.

In many ways Adele is the unsung hero of Gallowglass, the lynchpin that makes things happen quietly and efficiently.

Adele is married with two young Children, is fluent in English and Afrikaans and loves rugby and art. In particular she is a real aficionado of the French Impressionists.
