Fury told Stark that he wasn't recommended for the Avengers Initiative in Iron Man 2. However, at the beginning of The Avengers, Fury sent Agent Coulson to ask Stark to join the team because of the threat from Loki and the tesseract. Coulson told Stark that they didn't want him as a consultant, but rather as Iron Man. Thereafter, Stark suited up and the rest is history.

As for Fury's relationship with Hill in the MCU, that hasn't been explained. The film never said that Fury had recruited her, nor that she had worked her way up through the ranks. For all we know, Hill may have been assigned to be Fury's second in command by the World Security Council, rather than having come from within SHIELD. Presumably we'll learn more about her history in future films.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
