Clients praise our executive search expertise

We recruit new consultants based on a combination of skills, experience, and values alignment. The last factor is important, because even if they are considered one of the best headhunters operating in one of our core sectors, discipline areas, or locations, if they can’t demonstrate affinity with our company values – through their actions and disposition – then we won’t hire them. Simple as that.

This approach, naturally, has an impact on the quality of our service. Our annual Net Promoter Score (NPS), the internationally recognised metric for measuring customer satisfaction, positions us amongst the best companies worldwide and ahead of other executive recruitment agencies in Manchester, for service delivery. The feedback that we receive helps to reinforce the data:

“Nigel Wright Group has placed several high-calibre candidates into senior-level roles at McBride over the last few years including a Group Quality Director and a UK Sales Director. The service provided by the consultants is excellent. They are all knowledgeable and efficient operators, who constantly exceed our expectations to ensure our business needs are met.” — HR Manager, McBride
