What we do for our clients and candidates, also our values and inspirations


Who Is Nigel Wilson?

I set up my business in 1998, as a headhunter in retail marketing and design and POS/POP

My career started in retail management, then I moved into retail design and display, working throughout the UK and Europe (for more info click on my LinkedIn profile below)

I’m fascinated by people - what makes them tick, what their values are, and helping them to develop and achieve their goals. Setting up a recruitment business was a natural move for me

I occasionally run training courses for companies of all sizes in the UK and Europe. I have a diploma in performance coaching, and often carry out one-to-one mentoring

I’m tri-lingual, speaking commercial French and German, and in my spare time I run a French discussion group

I’m married with four daughters, and live in Tenterden, Kent. My passions are yoga, cycling, Chelsea football club, and being with interesting, authentic, fun people

We will never, ever persuade anyone to accept an offer against their better judgement. In fact we always say that however frustrating it is for all parties concerned, we’d rather a candidate decline an offer at the eleventh hour rather than have regrets three months later
