We are always looking for people from any industry and level, whether experienced recruiters or not, to join our growing team in the North of England. But it is a common misconception that people believe they need to have experience in recruitment to join our team. Group Executive Director Mark Simpson's career story will prove that you don't have to have any prior recruitment experience to have a successful career in recruitment.
What was your role?
Before joining the recruitment sector I was an Operations Manager responsible for the manufacturing and assemble of fabricated products, from SOP to Delivery to the customer.
What were your frustrations?
I wanted to be more exposed to what was happening commercially within the organisation, particularly how we sold and marketed ourselves. I also felt that I wasn’t being stretched sufficiently by those around me.
What ultimately led you to change jobs/leave?
I had got to a stage where I was very comfortable in my role, performing well but had got bored. I just couldn’t see myself carrying on for another 5+ years..
Why Nigel Wright?
Nigel Wright was, and remains, a highly respected business with a strong reputation. The company had a great brand and employed high quality, like-minded people. This built a culture that I wanted to be part of and I knew I would be gaining considerable commercial acumen.
What is the culture like here?
We are team orientated, friendly, highly commercial, energetic and maintain high expectations in terms of performance, customer service and values. Everyone is always learning and we strive to be open and honest with everyone we interact with – whether that’s our colleagues, candidates or clients.
