Clients praise our charity sector recruitment expertise:

“11Arches required a new Finance Director. This was a confidential appointment that required a degree of discretion on behalf of Nigel Wright when discussing the role in the market. The consultant who led the search was responsive, efficient and offered great communication throughout the recruitment process. We interviewed six people before making our choice.” — HR Director, 11Arches

“Connected Voice had an existing relationship with Nigel Wright Group before I joined the organisation. After they placed me as Head of Business Services, I reached out to their consultants to help me recruit a Management Accountant and two Payroll Officer roles. My personal experience as both a candidate and as a client has been excellent.”

“We reached out to Nigel Wright after unsuccessfully trying to appoint a Payroll Advisor. The consultant took the time to understand our complex business, team dynamics and what the role involved. Within 48 hours, we had three interviews scheduled, from which we appointed a fantastic candidate, who we would never have found ourselves.”
