“Our consultant provided excellent project management, liaising with us out of hours when required. We were very impressed with the level of knowledge of the skills required for the role. The brief was well presented, and the result was us having to choose from two very strong candidates. I would have no hesitation in recommending Nigel Wright to other businesses.”
