Praise for our lifestyle and fashion recruitment teams:

“We are very happy to have a new CEO that we are confident will lead and strengthen our brand.

The process to change and renew the company structure culminated in a thorough recruitment process from the leading search and headhunting agency, Nigel Wright Group.” Owner and Founder, Casall

"I have always found the consultants at Nigel Wright to be knowledgeable of my business sector and at all times they interact with me in a professional manner. My recent experience in dealing with them was excellent. They kept me up to date regarding the progress of the recruitment process." Warehouse Operations Manager, END.

“Experts in Supply Chain, Engineering and Manufacturing, they took the time to get to know our business and its challenges. They visited the factory, met with myself and other employees and quickly demonstrated they understood the culture and the type of people who work here. They asked questions which challenged me to think about the type of people and skills we needed. They offered market insight allowing me to consider what was available within my budget. It isn’t easy to recruit in this industry, but the calibre of the people we brought into our business shows that the talent is out there if you can find it. Overall, a very positive experience.” Operations Director, George Smith

"I can only say a thousand thank yous again to Nigel Wright. Our consultant was a real star from day one – from understanding exactly what we needed to finding the right applicants and demonstrating a real talent for negotiating the applicants' compensation." Sales & Business Development Manager EMEA, Himatsingka

"Nigel Wright supported us in the recruitment of a senior marketing role. They engaged with the role from the outset, questioned the brief in person and delivered candidates that delivered and resulted in the role being filled quickly." International Marketing Director, Lacoste

“The initial consultant was an excellent headhunter. When they had to step aside for personal reasons, the stand-in contacts did a great job in fulfilling these critical roles.” European Human Resources Director, Skechers

They provided us with the necessary breadth of expertise, market research and reach to ensure a customised, rigorous, and professional recruitment process.
