The Niche Partnership Team

Meet the team

At the core of The Niche Partnership brand is its people. Those within the team have been carefully selected based on their belief set and moral compass. We grew the The Niche Partnership family with individuals who embody our business values, ensuring we continue to grow and further strengthen our offering. As a team, we work hard to demonstrate to our network how recruitment can, and should be, done.

Ben Khosravi

Sales Director

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

Matthew Thick

Operations Director

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.

Ian Brown

Associate Director

I had an interest in personnel (old-school HR) and sales, so decided recruitment combined some of these skills. I like the multi-faceted aspect of the job… it isn’t one dimensional as one minute you can be giving career advice to a senior finance professional and the next taking a tour of a client’s site.

I was attracted to tnp by what Ben and Matt had achieved and their vision for the future and felt I could play my part in helping them grow the business. Also, I was keen to work with the talented team they have assembled.

Likes: Football (AFC Bournemouth), crisps and walking. 

Dislikes: Tea, lack of courtesy and wasps.

Kallie Henson

Recruitment Consultant

I wanted to get into recruitment because I’ve been told I have the personality for it! I love talking to people and learning new things, as well as being able to find people the right role – as I have been lucky to always work in really great places, I’d love to be able to give people that same feeling.

The team and the environment created by everyone at tnp are really great, there’s nothing better than working with people who you can have a laugh with! 

Likes: Bodybuilding, DNB, Chicken sausages!!

Dislikes: Question dodging, open water, laziness

  • Kai Balogun

Senior Consultant

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

Ben Grice

  • Ben Grice

Recruitment Consultant

I am an experienced recruiter who has worked in multiple industries. I was keen to take on a new challenge by moving into the finance and accounting arena.

I had followed the tnp brand for a few years, and I recognised instantly that I could thrive in the working environment they have created.

When I spoke with Ben and Matt, I was sold on their vision, ethos and mentality, which aligned closely with mine. The culture at tnp is excellent, and I’m thrilled that all of my initial impressions have proven true. I am confident that we will be successful and build enduring relations together.

Likes: Family, Liverpool Football Club and exploring new places.

Dislikes: Bacon & mushrooms, fake people and trash TV programmes.

Jack Kille

Recruitment Consultant

I am a keen learner and having some interest in finance and accounting in the past really drew me towards working in this industry.

As soon as I met the team at tnp, I could tell they were trying to do recruitment in a different way. A way that benefits the candidates rather than themselves. I think that’s what made them stand out to any other recruitment company and I couldn’t wait to get started.

Likes: Football, Chinese takeaways and holidays.

Dislikes: Onions, rude people and needles

Dan James

Recruitment Consultant

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 and Matt 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.

Becca Campbell

Candidate Journey Manager

My first job at uni was working for an accountancy recruitment agency and I found a love for helping people get jobs! Since then, I’ve worked in various aspects of recruitment and employability (as well as a brief stint as a crown court usher) and enjoy supporting people to present themselves in the best way from application to job start. I’ve always loved numbers and data so accounts and finance appealed to me.

I wanted to join tnp because they’re a recruitment agency doing something actually different. They have a clear focus on supporting candidates whether or not you find them a job. Doing recruitment the right way! I also love the flexibility and I get to bring my foster dogs into the office!

Likes: Quizzes, galaxy counters and true crime documentaries

Dislikes: Mice, grammar/spelling mistakes and mashed potatoes.

Fraser Khosravi

Mental Health Ambassador

I believe that life should be full of happiness. My job at tnp is simple really, I make people smile. I work very hard to make sure that each member of the team is feeling positive every single day by distracting them, chewing their shoe laces, jumping on to their laps for a cuddle. Whilst I love my job, it can be exhausting so I do have to take regular naps which my team fully supports.

Likes: Barking at random people, any sort of affection and cheese 

Dislikes: Getting zero attention, the vets and anyone knocking the door
