Client feedback reinforces the data:

“During a period of change and transformation, Formica needed to identify and attract talent into a variety of positions across its sales, marketing, and operations teams. Each assignment was delivered by an expert in the relevant function, who fully understand each vacancy, as well as Formica’s culture and provided insights and recommendations throughout.” — Talent and Reward Manager, Formica

“We selected Nigel Wright because of its drinks sector expertise. The consultant took the time to get to know our business and used their industry knowledge to deliver a successful process. They kept us informed of developments, provided weekly update reports, and managed our expectations in an open and transparent way. We’re delighted with the result.” — Director, Silent Pool Distillers

“This was a superb service from the consultant who understood the commercial manager brief and delivered against all aspects of it to identify quality candidates and give us some superb options to choose from. We have since used Nigel Wright to recruit finance and IT roles. A highly recommended service, which I fully intend to use for all future talent requirements.”  Managing Director, VGC Group
