The stories behind some of our Consultants

Andy Scott, Principal Consultant

"I joined Nigel Wright in 2017 as a Researcher. This is my first role within the recruitment industry. I had previously spent 8 years in food retail, working my way up from the shop floor to a Department Manager position, which I ultimately left in 2016 to spend some time traveling.

After speaking to many recruitment agencies, I was attracted to Nigel Wright by the calibre and professionalism of the consultants in the business. Since joining, everybody has gone above and beyond to support my career progression and enable me to reach my full potential."

"I joined Nigel Wright in 2016 after spending 10 years working for two large plc recruiters. Nigel Wright was always a brand I had admired and I knew that I could develop my market further and grow a successful new business area for the organisation.

After my first month, I knew I'd made the right decision. At Nigel Wright, I have a valuable network of trusted peers, access to an ambitious and friendly senior management team and I work for a global organisation with a strong local presence - I genuinely love to come to work!"

"I joined Nigel Wright after an 18 year career with a plc recruitment business. I can honestly say that I feel like I work for a plc now, more than I ever did for the previous 18 years.  Nigel Wright is full of like-minded, hard-working, professional and diligent consultants and is a refreshingly ‘grown up’ environment to work in. After my first week in the business, I felt like I’d worked here forever and was stunned to find that I genuinely liked everyone I worked with.

If you want to work hard and be in a business which genuinely offers you career opportunities (locally and internationally), then we might just be the business for you."
