Customer service sets us apart from other sales recruitment agencies in Yorkshire

Nigel Wright Group takes customer service very seriously. All clients and candidates served by our recruiters are regularly surveyed by our internal marketing team. Comments – positive and negative– are collated and reported back to managers. Managers use this data for internal performance reviews, and significantly, it is factored into our weekly training programmes, tailored for people at different levels of our business. Examples of ‘what good customer service looks like’ are shared every day. What’s the impact? Well, our Net Promoter Score indicates that we are in the top percentile of companies for customer loyalty.

Our clients are confident that we will uphold their standards when fulfilling recruitment assignments. This is what some of our Yorkshire-based clients said about us:
