  • Charlotte was first class. Encouraging and realistic about my strengths and weaknesses relating to the role. She was also, when successful, supportive and engaging. I would not hesitate to use NW in future as a candidate or recruiter.

    Candidate

  • Thanks again for your help in securing the role. I've really appreciated the level of communication from yourself throughout, a number of other recruiters/agencies I've dealt with in the past have fallen massively short on that aspect. I know from speaking to other candidates/colleagues in the past it's really valued by us as candidates and it's something you've always done well.

    Candidate

  • Charlotte was extremely professional at all times, very personable and demonstrated significant knowledge of her client and their business. She also took the time to ring me in person on a Friday evening to inform me I wasn’t being progressed which to me was a further demonstration of her personal and professional approach.

    Candidate

  • Job seeking can be a soul-destroying experience as finding the right role, dealing with rejection, and getting little clear feedback in an increasingly automated world sucks the life out of candidates. However, it was refreshing to have a very positive human experience with Chris Kent and Charlotte Owen from Nigel Wright Recruitment – good briefing, thoughtful guidance, frank feedback, and time invested face-to-face, on the 'phone and online without at any time feeling like being in a sausage machine. Thank you.
