The Niche Partnership Team
Meet the team
I’ve always had a burning desire to build a successful business – maybe too much Dragons Den? Regardless, having worked for the large corporates and boutique firms for almost 10 years, I’m familiar with challenges that often come with recruiting. Consequently, the launch of tnp was not about re-inventing the wheel, but rather, an opportunity to steer away from these common headaches by working with integrity, building on niche relationships and focusing on excellent customer service.
Likes: Practical jokes, overindulging, family time (particularly with my niece and nephew)
Dislikes: Bad manners, liars, any flying insect
Coming from a family of business owners I felt somewhat destined to do the same myself! My passion to start tnp came from a belief that there is always a better way to do things.
A major bugbear of mine is ‘process’ for process sake, taking away valued time that could be spent focusing on the people. I believe from my 7 years’ experience that the key to success lies in a practical approach, avoiding the ‘salesman pitch’ and keeping it simple.
Likes: Glove (my 1 eyed Himalayan Persian cat), eating out, gaming
Dislikes: ‘We’ve always done it this way’ mentality, clutter, procrastination.
In the time I’ve worked in Recruitment I’ve learnt that those you work alongside are vital to your success, and having known Ben and Matthew for some time I knew my career would thrive at tnp – joining them was simply a ‘no brainer’!
Working in a trusting environment in which we all pull together to succeed is important to me. Given that we spend more time at work than we do with our loved ones, finding somewhere that you enjoy being each day must be priority. There is a true sense of teamwork at tnp, working alongside Ben and Matthew means everyone is valued and contributes equally – but above all we never fail to have a laugh and no day is ever dull!
Likes: Bobby (My dog, I didn’t pick the name!), football and gaming.
Dislikes: Time wasters, negativity and potholes
I came from a business with a lot of transferrable skills and I really enjoy speaking to people and I have a strong sales background.
I love that tnp are trying to do something different within the industry, it really makes them stand out. I also think it’s a really good culture fit and there are lots of opportunity to grow and develop
Likes: Tennis, travelling and trying new food!
Dislikes: Bananas, when people are talking and someone interrupts and changes the subject, and when people park over 2 spaces
I’m an ambitious person and after seeing family members build a successful career in recruitment, I was inspired to do the same. For me, tnp stood out because of the training programme delivered by the management team. Being new to the industry, it was important for me to join a business with a supportive culture and a team around me that I could rely on.
I connected with tnp‘s core values straight away and feel these are genuine to the team. After meeting Ben, Matt and Nikki at the interview I knew straight away they were down to earth people that I could definitely work alongside. All this made me feel really confident in my decision to join them.
Likes: Liverpool Football Club, pizza and Formula 1.
Dislikes: Snakes, negativity and vegetables.
