  • Kathy was super helpful and passed my name onto someone who would be more appropriate for my CV.


  • A helpful, quick and very positive all-round service that produced exactly the candidates we needed.

    David Petherick, Lookers.

  • Kathy is the most engaged recruitment consultant I've come across and the most cheerful. Very professional service.

    Alan Jones

  • The service received was very friendly and professional and I felt that I was always kept informed of progress at all stages of the application process. I did not have to chase the agency for information, you were very proactive on my behalf.

    Steven Dawson

  • I want to sincerely thank you for the meeting we had earlier this month. You helped a great deal that day by providing me with advice, but most of all in helping restore my confidence, resolve and determination to succeed within the job market. I hold you in high esteem.

    Trevor Tonge

  • Kathy kept me informed during the whole process. This was refreshing as often feedback and communication can be poor in the industry. Nigel Wright were well ahead compared to my experiences with others.

    Chris Daniels

  • The consultants I’ve dealt with have been highly professional and kept me informed on developments.

    Gavin Healy

  • I have had several interactions with different agencies. Nigel Wright is the easiest, most reliable professional agency that I worked with.

    Elena Outfield

  • Kathy Buckler was very pleasant and welcoming and came across as being genuinely interested in discussing my background and what it was I was looking for. At no time was I made to feel that she had a lack of interest and that I was just going through the motions.

    Doug Bedford

  • I found a great role via Nigel Wright. The process was seamless from start to start. Kathy kept me well informed too.

    Chris Daniels

  • A very organised and professional, but also personal, service. Willing to be flexible around customer requirements.


  • What I think is good is the fact that you receive regular updates, even if it’s to say that there is no progress at the moment. It’s easy to feel forgotten otherwise.


  • My recent experience made me feel appreciated and a valued contractor.


  • I can honestly say I have never ever received such a good service from any other recruitment company during my career as the service I have been receiving from Nigel Wright. I would describe Kathy Buckler, my main contact, as a very kind and pleasant person to talk to, great listener and extremely good professional! That being said, all the team has been great, Jennifer Rankin, Katie Hewitt, Jack Grummitt... what a great team, it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with all these people.


  • I always receive an excellent, professional service and great advice. Niel


  • Got back to me straight away when I registered interest in a vacancy that I had seen that was shared on LinkedIn. Felt my experience was a good match for the role and happy that Nigel Wright thought the same and put me forward for the role straight away.


  • Very efficient, friendly, always kept in touch.


  • Kathy is genuinely lovely and takes a great interest in people. My partner was successful in a role that was placed by a colleague of Kathy but she still gave her a call to say congratulations. From my brief experience with other recruitment agencies, this level of care is above and beyond.


  • Very impressive. I was kept informed of the progress throughout the process. Very friendly and warm staff.
