“When a potential vacancy emerged at our business, we decided to advertise the role. Despite receiving several applications, it became clear that we weren’t attracting the right people. I’d previously been in contact with Nigel Wright to discuss how it could help Hövding with future talent acquisition projects. When we contacted their consultant for assistance, I was immediately impressed by their ability to ‘read between the lines’ of what we needed.
The consultant had a good understanding of Hövding’s needs, ambitions, its people and the importance of cultural fit. They also demonstrated impressive knowledge of the talent market in Malmo and Sweden and right from the start, suggested we meet the individual we ultimately hired.
An immediate connection between us and the candidate meant we could explore synergies between our business needs and their career ambitions. And because they weren’t actively looking for a new role, a sincere dialogue was possible. This candidate was exactly right from a personality perspective, as well as having the requisite skills and experience. They were skilled enough to add fresh thinking and develop our digital proposition, but also young enough whereby we could offer them the opportunity to learn and develop within our business and develop their career over the long-term.
Overall, we're delighted with the outcome.”
Anna-Katarina Skogh, Director of Marketing Communications
"For me, it's imperative that the recruiter understand exactly what I am looking for and can help finding candidates that perhaps even represent more than I knew I needed for the role. I'm extremely pleased with the result of our recruitment."

Throughout the years, they have exclusively delivered candidates perfectly matched with both role and corporate culture. In addition to high quality and reliable deliveries, we have also received very positive feedback from many of the candidates we have had the privilege of encountering, that they appreciated the professional response from NW throughout the process.

“During a period of change and transformation, Formica needed to identify and attract talent into a variety of positions across its sales, marketing, operations and supply chain teams. These roles were at different levels and spread right across the European division, making this an extremely challenging process. Nigel Wright took the time to fully understand each vacancy, as well as Formica’s culture and provided insights and recommendations throughout. Each assignment was delivered by an expert in the relevant function and was managed by a dedicated account manager. This approach enabled us to have oversight of all of the concurrent recruitment activities taking place. We continue to partner with Nigel Wright in the North East and also across Europe.”
