We engaged Nigel Wright to help us hire a UK managing director. Our consultant did a professional job, and we are very satisfied with the results. The whole process was transparent, and we were ultimately provided with two appointable candidates, which left us with a choice – the desired situation. We would come back to you any time for future roles.

I’ve worked with Nigel Wright Group on several senior executive appointments at IHC over the years and enjoyed a lot of success. The consultants take the time to understand our business and its needs, as well as get to know the people in our organisation. This means they always know, exactly, the required personalities of the individuals we want to employ here.
