"Really good service. Time was taken to get to know me and the business I support, and then the right kind of candidates for the role and the business were proposed."

Trevor Austin, Head of Supply Chain, Rotary Power


“During a period of change and transformation, Formica needed to identify and attract talent into a variety of positions across its sales, marketing, operations and supply chain teams. These roles were at different levels and spread right across the European division, making this an extremely challenging process. Nigel Wright took the time to fully understand each vacancy, as well as Formica’s culture and provided insights and recommendations throughout. Each assignment was delivered by an expert in the relevant function and was managed by a dedicated account manager. This approach enabled us to have oversight of all of the concurrent recruitment activities taking place. We continue to partner with Nigel Wright in the North East and also across Europe.”

Victoria Scott, European Talent and Reward Manager at Formica
