Client quotes

“I have worked with Nigel Wright across my career, 3 businesses and 3 very different sectors and have always found the service exceptional and professional. The fact that Sarah and Lisa have taken time to understand our business and the challenges we have, ensures that we are only presented with candidates that fit our brief. This not only means that we are getting a great service but also, candidates are too If you are looking for a new role, it can be frustrating being put forward for a role only to find out at interview that it’s not suitable.” - Thomas Swan

"Lisa Taylor is probably the most professional recruiter I have ever worked with. She takes time to understand our business, not only the needs for the role she is recruiting for but the department and where that sits in the overall organization. She understands the culture and the people we have here and the challenges we face as a business as well as the industry as a whole. She is honest and takes ownership of her work in a way that many other Recruiters do not. She is discreet when needed and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new role as I know she genuinely cares about the candidates she represents. Lisa also keeps me up to date with market developments and changes within the North East which may have an impact on what we do here, a consultative approach is always taken but with a friendly approachable manner." - Siemens

“Excellent communication from the start of the process through to the candidate’s start date. Throughout the process we constantly talked in terms of the relevant skills I was looking for; opinions were exchanged from both sides which helped when deciding on the correct fit for the job. ” - Gerard Brockley, Interflex Group

“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.”
Victoria Scott, European Talent and Reward Manager at Formica
