Service Excellence is one of our core values. We work hard to embed a service culture right across our organisation.

As well as gathering opinions, we also ask clients and candidates to rate our service using the Net Promoter Score (NPS) system.

The feedback that we receive from our clients helps to reinforce the data:

“The whole process to hire a sales manager and head of ecommerce was made very easy by the professionalism of Nigel Wright’s team. And I have to say that the lead consultant's communication in keeping us updated has been fantastic. I have done a lot of recruitment over the years, but this has been one of the most organised and professional experiences I have had.”

“Over the years, the consultants have spent time getting underneath how our business operates, understanding the culture and the type of fit that is needed to complement and enhance existing teams. Communications are always clear and direct, combined with a personable style. This was evident again during the recruitment process to hire our new ecommerce director.”
CMO, Munchkin

Talent pool and employer brand solutions enhance our recruitment efforts

All types of businesses are experiencing skills gaps due to a multitude of converging factors such as an aging workforce and a lack of interest among younger workers in some career areas. As well as delivering traditional search processes, we also offer talent pool solutions to clients seeking to overcome this challenge by building a database of highly skilled candidates to target for future roles.

We’re proud to play our part in building the workforce of the future. Promoting a client’s employer brand is a key aspect of this. Our internal marketing team provide several promotional services including producing candidate packs, career sites and social and email marketing campaigns, all aimed at telling our clients’ stories, as well as advertising exciting senior ecommerce opportunities.
