What Our Clients Say:

"I first used Nigel over 10 years ago to help recruit an accounts payable person. Since then I have returned to Nigel time and again for a variety of positions including financial controller and lately IT consultant. Nigel's ability to match what I need with the right person has been invaluable. But more importantly is his integrity. He always gives a fair and honest view of any candidate."
