After studying Ballet at University of Cape Town she had an exciting career in dance which allowed her to travel around the
world. Nicky moved to the UK 20 years ago and threw herself into a sales career which she thrived in. Moving into recruitment seemed like a natural progression – matching the right person to
the right role really appealed to her.

A successful career spanning over 20 years, Nicky has worked across several sectors including Built Environment, Facilities Management and Financial Services where she recruited professionals from Senior to Executive Management Level. Nicky has had excellent training from top recruitment fi rms including Eden Brown (UK), The Management Recruitment Group (UK),
Hudson Global and most recently Communicate Recruitment, part of the AdvTech Group, a JSE listed company, where she was one of the top billing consultants in the country.


I have been part of some exceptional recruitment businesses and have seen what works.
I always dreamed of starting my own to be more involved, truly consultative and to
be a true partner with the clients I works with.
