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

  • Hanisha Mistry

Recruitment Consultant

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

  • 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

  • Brad Smith

Recruitment Consultant

Being an ACCA member and loving to build relationships and connecting with people it seemed the perfect fit for me. I was looking for a career move where I could pull on my experience within finance but something which was more people-centric focussed.

From my first contact with Ben a few years ago to dealing with other members of the team more recently has always been a great experience and something I wanted to be a part of. Everything that tnp stands for, aligns with my own personal views and it seemed like a perfect fit for me.

Likes: Food, my pets and ski holidays

Dislikes: Cheese, Tomatoes (raw), rude people

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, 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.

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.

Kabir Miah

Financial Controller

Prior to becoming an accountant, I had an eclectic mix of experience in customer service, sales, financial services and even being a business owner. I enjoyed the bookkeeping and financial side and decided to do AAT level 2 to increase my knowledge and found my niche! My tutor offered me my first job and the rest is history.

I’ve known Ben and Matt for many years, being a candidate via tnp! It’s an exciting company with great growth potential, our core values match and I couldn’t let the opportunity pass.

Likes: Reading, travelling and tech!

Dislikes: Needles, spiders and social media


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
