Andy Scott, Researcher

"I joined Nigel Wright in 2017 as a Researcher. This is my first role within the recruitment industry. I had previously spent 8 years in food retail, working my way up from the shop floor to a Department Manager position, which I ultimately left in 2016 to spend some time traveling.

After speaking to many recruitment agencies, I was attracted to Nigel Wright by the calibre and professionalism of the consultants in the business. Since joining, everybody has gone above and beyond to support my career progression and enable me to reach my full potential."

Michael Dawson, Consultant

"I joined Nigel Wright after spending 3 years in Information Management and previously worked in business development in the software and assessment industry. For me it felt like IT recruitment was a great opportunity to combine that experience into one role. Nigel Wright came with a great reputation as an ethical and professional business, which stood out to me and helped dispel the ‘label’ that recruiters can get in the market place. Since joining I can see why they’ve earned that reputation, as I was immediately blown away by the level of performance and dedication everyone was putting in. If you don’t mind working hard but knowing the rewards are there at the end of it, then it’s a great opportunity to stand out in a crowded and competitive environment."

Daniel Bloxham, Consultant

"I joined Nigel Wright in 2016, which was my first venture into the recruitment industry. My background previously was talent management, having worked in the Investors in People arena for over 13 years.

From the moment I arrived it was clear that Nigel Wright is a truly commercial outfit. The calibre of the workforce is impressive, which combines well with a vibrant and supportive culture. The company provides a great platform to succeed, with a clear path for progression. If you’re new to the industry, the training and development will ensure you’re inducted well.
If you are hardworking, want to be part of a successful team and be rewarded, consider joining Nigel Wright."

Sarah Dargue, Managing Consultant

"I joined Nigel Wright after an 18 year career with a plc recruitment business. I can honestly say that I feel like I work for a plc now, more than I ever did for the previous 18 years.  Nigel Wright is full of like-minded, hard-working, professional and diligent consultants and is a refreshingly ‘grown up’ environment to work in. After my first week in the business, I felt like I’d worked here forever and was stunned to find that I genuinely liked everyone I worked with.

If you want to work hard and be in a business which genuinely offers you career opportunities (locally and internationally), then we might just be the business for you."

Richard Morgan, Associate Director

"I joined Nigel Wright around 6 years ago as a Senior Consultant.  My earlier background saw me train as an Accountant before entering recruitment via another regional recruitment business. I was attracted to Nigel Wright by the quality of the people, brand and market perception and each of those factors remains a strong part of what has kept me engaged in the business.  I enjoy working with high calibre colleagues across all levels and areas of the business. Nigel Wright has enabled me to develop significantly in the last six years, achieving two formal promotions.  For me, the balance has been right between career challenge and realistic achievement and I’m confident that I will continue to learn and develop at Nigel Wright."

Charlotte Owen, Managing Consultant

"I joined Nigel Wright in 2016 after spending 10 years working for two large plc recruiters. Nigel Wright was always a brand I had admired and I knew that I could develop my market further and grow a successful new business area for the organisation.

After my first month, I knew I'd made the right decision. At Nigel Wright, I have a valuable network of trusted peers, access to an ambitious and friendly senior management team and I work for a global organisation with a strong local presence - I genuinely love to come to work!"

Specific areas we have found the transition to be particularly successful from are Manufacturing, Marketing, Finance, Buying, Sales, Professional services and Consumer products.

At Nigel Wright, we operate a true meritocracy where hard work and determination don’t go unrecognised. We are a mature, corporate environment where we allow our employees the room to operate as individuals and come up with creative and innovative solutions for our clients, whilst at the same time providing training and development to enable career progression.

All opportunities are available for you at Nigel Wright.
