Service Excellence is one of our core values and we work hard to ensure that we’re always improving how we deliver our services to both clients and candidates. Using feedback gathered from regular customer opinion surveys, we’re able to pinpoint what ‘excellent service’ looks like and use this information to develop ongoing training initiatives for consultants at all levels of our business.

The feedback that we receive from clients helps to reinforce the data:

“Nigel Wright was recommended to me as the best recruiter for executive appointments. The strength of that recommendation, together with Nigel Wright’s extensive regional networks, is why we chose to partner with them on the CFO assignment. Our shortlist included people from the North East and Yorkshire. We’re delighted to attract such a high-calibre individual.”
CEO, Beyond Housing

“I’d like to express my gratitude for the outstanding process you led for the director of marketing and engagement position. I was impressed at how much effort was invested in understanding Gentoo’s culture, as well as how well you briefed the candidates. The calibre of people we met during the interview process was excellent.”
Executive Director, Corporate Services, Gentoo Group
