“We have received an excellent service from Wickland Westcott at New Street Consulting Group in relation to the recruitment process for the chief executive and deputy chief executive/finance director roles. Both processes were executed in a responsive, professional and transparent way with the necessary rigour and attention to detail required.”HR Director
The Manchester College
“Wickland Westcott at NSCG took time in the initial briefing to understand the context as well as the actual role content for the UK managing director position. The team checked in on us from time to time to ensure they were reading the situation and discussed the likely fit of each of the candidates presented versus the specification. They then championed the evaluation of a key candidate who was outside the initial scope – but proved to be a strong fit”Global HR VP
"What I appreciated very much was NSCG's capacity to truly understand our needs. They showed tremendous focus and drive to find the right candidate rapidly, but without cutting corners in terms of the quality of the profiles put forward."Thomas Van Houtte
