Creative recruitment with conscience

Don't just take my word for it...

Read all the lovely things clients and candidates have said about us. 

Nikky is, without doubt, the most Human and Creative recruiter I had the pleasure to meet this year. Her fantastic ideas, understanding of the economical situation and HARD WORK, combined with her incredible agency expertise makes her undoubtedly an absolute asset for anyone willing to go further and beyond! I had the opportunity to join her on one of her brilliant side hustle called The Good Gang, which completely represents her : A group showcasing the best ideas, projects and agencies created to promote the Greater Good.

I honestly cannot recommend Nikky enough. Working with Nikky has been the most positive experience I have throughout my creative job hunt. Nikky is incredibly personable and easy to talk to, I felt reassured, positive and motivated after every one of our conversations. I will 100% recommend Nikky to anyone I know who is looking for a new role within the creative industry. My only regret is that I didn't find her sooner on my job hunt! Thank you so much again for everything.

Nikky was a lifesaver at a time where the world felt uncertain. She made time to get to know me as a person and was able to place me in a position where I not only love the work but get along with the team as well. She's kept in touch to make sure I'm still okay which is something that's always appreciated in a recruiter!
Kendra Biller
I know Nikky as a recruiter but also Nikky as an enthusiastic business owner. In fact, I had the pleasure of being in a small Nikky Lyle team and she also got me job that allowed me to use my skillset and have great colleagues. As a recruiter, she was fast, honest and, most importantly, really supporting during the whole process. As a business owner, she was - and is! - full of ideas and new ways of helping her audience. I was supporting her with designing social media content within a small team and I loved the Industry Leaders series. It was novel and fresh, especially during the turbulent and hard time that was 2020.

Nikky runs a brilliant operation, and is an absolutely fantastic recruiter. Each and every candidate she's picked out for my design hires have been incredible. Would highly recommend to any business owner.
Jack Howell
I've just started working with Nikky in recent months on a few hard-to-fill vacancies. Nikky and her team have been super efficient in quickly presenting candidates that match our requirements and taking on board our feedback to refine their search! They have been an absolute pleasure and provide 5 star service, which sadly is few and far between in recent years. Thank you Nikky and team for being so fantastic, I look forward to continuing working with you!

What to know more? This should help.

I’m an ex creative and my entire network is full of creatives.

I have over a decades worth of recruitment experience, especially within graphic design and creative roles.

I’ve always had a passion for graphic design but when choosing a degree I ended up doing for photography.

I studied at Falmouth University where I found myself launching loads of side hustles.

After Uni I fell into the wonderful world of creative recruitment, and I’ve never looked back!
