Regional executive recruitment services

“We initially approached three executive search agencies to discuss a Finance Director vacancy at The Port of Blyth. It had been a long time since we had recruited leadership talent and we needed to ensure we got the right person. Nigel Wright presented a wide range of strong candidates who matched what we were looking for. Consultants worked hard to meet a very tight schedule and demonstrated a complete understanding of our business needs.” Chief Executive, Port of Blyth

“We've enjoyed a lot of long term success using Nigel Wright. The consultants always take the time to understand our business and its needs and get to know the people in our organisation. Communication is excellent too and the progress of an assignment is always clear. Our shortlists always include the leading talent in the market too. It's an all-round professional service. If you need an executive recruitment agency, then I'd highly recommend Nigel Wright.” HR Manager, Royal IHC

They provided us with the necessary breadth of expertise, market research and reach to ensure a customised, rigorous, and professional recruitment process. The detailed interviewing process led to a diverse set of high calibre candidates. This gave us peace of mind that no stone was left unturned.” Vice President Global Sales, Wahoo Fitness
