The stories behind our consultants
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."
Olivia Penn, Consultant
"I studied Business Management and Spanish at York St John University, spending a year in Madrid as part of the course, I then worked at an international language school followed by three months in Kenya before starting work at Nigel Wright.
Since joining the Nigel Wright Graduate Scheme six months ago, I have learnt a huge amount, regular training sessions coupled with being given responsibilities from the start have led to a very satisfying first six months with the company. The support right across the board, from CEO, to managers to administrative staff has been unprecedented, making Nigel Wright a great environment to be a part of."
Claire Stewart, Senior Consultant
"Having spent 11 years in FMCG Brand Management, it was a tough decision to move over into recruitment, but having met with a number of top recruiters in the field, I knew Nigel Wright was the right place. From their professionalism, credibility and gravitas within the industry, coupled with my direct knowledge of the market, I knew I could build a successful and progressive career. With industry leading training and support from day one, Nigel Wright empower you to build effective relationships by providing an unrivalled service with the flexibility to drive your own business plan."
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."
