“Nik is the best recruiter that I have ever met! He helped me get a job within 2 weeks of my first meeting with him. He provided me with resources that helped gain a greater insight into the area I wanted to go into. Which in turn made the interview easier as I knew a lot about the job I was applying for. When you work with Nik you also have his personal number which makes it easy for you to communicate with him and he only puts you forward for roles you are suitable for. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to get into Digital Marketing.”

Not only that he provided me extensive and detailed advice on how to improve my presence on career network sites such as Linkedin or how to make my CV look more specific but also he established contact with several well reputed digital agencies for me which then led to interviews and ultimately to one successful application. All of that within 2 weeks after we had our first face-to-face consultation. Nik’s approach is to understand personality and skills of a candidate to quickly identify which current vacancies would suit that person most. He has been available at any given time. Once more, thanks Nik!”

This means you will get a selection of high quality candidates on brief and well briefed. Highly recommended.”

“Whilst I was job hunting, I read a lot of this: “We care about our candidates”, “We make sure we put you first”, “we like to get to know our candidates” and so on and so forth, and to be quite honest, I was starting to find it a little hard to believe, until I spoke to Neil. I was browsing the guardian jobs site, and saw a job represented by Neil’s Recruitment Co. and so followed the link to their website and was really impressed. It’s very cool, very quirky, and like it says, “not big, just clever”, so I thought I’d sign up and then give them a call. I did, and I can honestly say that this is an agency that really does seem to do all the above, and more. I was looking to get into Social Media and Neil was just really helpful in listening to what I’ve done, telling me what to read and where to find it, and giving me an idea for a way I could get into this particular industry. As someone who didn’t really know where to start and just wanted some good advice, I found talking to Neil extremely helpful and encouraging. So yeah…If you’re looking for a job in digital media and want to someone who’s not just sitting at a desk fleshing out their candidate base and actually really know what they’re talking about – talk to Neil.”

“Nik Nyman was a guest speaker in one of my classes at Hult International Business School, and spoke on effective ways to brand yourself. Out of the 5 or so speakers I have seen on the topic, Nik was one of the most enthusiastic and engaging. He was extremely open with the group and at the end of the succession freely gave us his information, and responded timely when I decided to connect with him. I asked Nik for some feedback on my online presence and how I was perceived; he quickly gave me useful tips and structure to effectively tailor my profiles to be more appealing to those visiting.”
