Niche Recruitment



There was a driving force behind starting Niche Recruitment: one of service and professionalism, meeting a need by consistently providing the highest level of care to every candidate or client.

They say there’s no substitute for experience. We agree. We also think knowledge and the ability to build an honest relationship are vitally important too. Which is why everything we do is based around those three key elements. It’s what we believe makes us different.

Taking the time to get to know your business – and who can add value to it – is always the first step, it involves listening, being honest and, if needs be, challenging your requirements and processes. Then our expert insight, varied experience and second-to-none market knowledge come into play. All to help your business make informed recruitment decisions.

We work with a wide range of clients; from start-ups and growing SMEs, to agencies and well-known brands. And we pride ourselves on getting to know every one of our candidates as well as we know our clients.

The results and the feedback we’ve received assure us we’re on the right track.


With combined recruitment experience of over 25 years, with vast networks of referrals and candidates, and driven only by service, Niche directors Nick and Michelle work with clients as true recruitment partners.

They know the market inside out and are committed to finding and recruiting the best talent.

    I have been so impressed with Niche Recruitment from my very first interaction with them. Nick got in touch having seen my CV online and was so responsive and kind throughout the entire process of securing me a new role. He listened and explained everything in great detail. Nick and Michelle have an incredibly friendly, personal approach and really are unlike any recruitment company I have worked with in the past. Thank you so much for taking the time to really understand what I wanted from my next role and to deliver on that also! I would 100% recommend Niche to anyone looking for their next role, or to any company looking to partner with a recruitment company with a difference.


    A helpful, caring recruitment company After being made redundant on maternity leave, I was very nervous about finding a job and having that flexibility with having a young baby. I applied for a role which Niche was looking after and Michelle has supported me with applying and assessing me for that role. She has been an advocate for me and found me the perfect role to go back to after maternity leave. They have been so detailed and caring and has made finding a job a pleasant experience.

Tracy and all the others at Niche: Thanks again for getting me where I am and for the lovely present I received yesterday :-D You are TOP NOTCH!!

From the get go they were very detailed and spent a lot of time getting to know me, my situation and my background which led to them finding a role that seemed like it was tailored made for me. Charli was extremely helpful with advice and kept in touch with me throughout the recruiting. They were always just a phone call or email away with any questions I had. I highly recommend the Niche team!

    I can't recommend Niche Recruitment highly enough. Working with Nick on my latest job search was a pleasure. Nick took great care in understanding my skill set, where I want to go with my career, the type of organisation I wanted to work for and helped balance my criteria to fit in with my family life. Niche found the perfect match for me, both in terms of organisational fit and role. The recruitment process was like a quality boutique experience; it was personalised, I was listened to and treated like an individual. First in class! I'm so grateful that our paths crossed and that I am where I am. Thank you Niche!


    Product Manager

    Exceptional service and dedication to candidates

    Michelle from Niche Recruitment reached out to me about a role at a time when I had given up on recruiters contacting and ghosting me about opportunities. After her swift response we were on a call, discussing my experience, wants and needs and she was lining up interviews. Despite our difference in location Michelle went out of her way to find opportunities more local to me and has ended up securing me a fantastic role with a company I hadn’t seen were recruiting. She gave me confidence in my skill set niche and allowed me to ace my interviews and be offered the job, all within a week of my first interview with them. Without Michelle, I’d still be tirelessly searching. Niche really go the extra mile. A fantastic recruiter, excellent company and an absolute must use for anyone job hunting. Thank you!


    CRM Executive

    If you are looking for a next career move then I would really recommend Nick and his team at Niche Recruitment.  Nick initially approached me as he came across my profile and felt it a potential match for a vacancy that he was aware of.  After a very encouraging conversation, he put forward my details as a potential candidate.  Nick was very supportive throughout the whole recruitment process – from submitting my details and liaising over the job interview, to keeping me up to date with decisions being taken by the employer, facilitating contact once I was offered the post, and a subsequent courtesy call to check that I was settling into my new role.   Considering that I didn’t even need to apply for the post I now have an excellent permanent job with a major employer.  I am so thankful to Nick and his involvement and I wish him and Niche Recruitment every success for the future




    Nick contacted me regarding a job opening and he was with me throughout the whole process, with both guidance and cheerful words!

    He was hands-on from the beginning, answering every email and call right away, the one time he wasn’t there someone else replayed just as fast and with just as much professionalism and enthusiasm!

    He was also discussing my concerns regarding moving and pay and benefits and gave great advice before making the final decision! I do not have a single bad thing to say about this company, and I will recommend them everyone I know.


    Exceptional Recruitment at every step of the process!

    Michelle from Niche Recruitment was brilliant from start to finish. From the first initial video interview to keeping me updated and offering great advice and help throughout the whole process! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a new role to use Niche!

    Online Marketing Manager Sweden

    Exceptional Recruitment Company

    I can only echo the other 5 star reviews posted here (Trustpilot). Nick supported me through the recruitment process and boosted my confidence when I was unsure of my abilities. I would not have succeeded if it wasn't for his valuable advice. As someone who has worked in the recruitment industry previously, it was very refreshing to come across a recruiter who genuinely cared about their candidate and that went the extra mile to ensure they were supported throughout the entire process. I can not recommend Nick and Niche recruitment strongly enough.


    Relationship Manager

    I was fortunate enough to have Niche recruitment support me during my job search - the team is hands down one of the most genuinely caring, professional and organised recruiters I have had the privilege to go through.  Nick was my point of contact at Niche and the whole process not only helped me gain experience and confidence with interviewing but through the consistent feedback I received I was able to develop this skill-set throughout my job search process. I have now landed my dream job, after moving to England during the height of COVID-19. I was kept informed throughout the interview process and I never felt like just another candidate to them.  If you’re looking for a position I would highly recommend Niche Recruitment just because they truly do go above and beyond. Their process also entails a unique interview at the start, which allows you to get familiar with the interviewing process.
    If you’re a company looking to hire I would recommend niche as they screen candidates ahead of time and are able to fit us into jobs they know we’ll succeed in based on our knowledge and organisational cultural fit. A big thank you to Nick and his team!

    I dealt with Nick at Niche Recruitment and he was absolutely brilliant! Within a week Nick had managed to secure me a role that I really wanted. He made sure that I was fully prepared every step of the way and was there to support me with any questions I had. Again Nick, I can't thank you enough for helping me get this role, I'm enjoying it so much and looking forward to seeing where it takes me in my career. Overall, I would strongly recommend Niche Recruitment!


    Team Manager

    Michelle has been an absolute star throughout the process. From the very beginning giving me a really good background on the company and the team, and what they were looking for in the right candidate. She was available to chat to early mornings and evenings, whenever I had a question and has been very helpful, friendly and encouraging. Part of the process involved doing a video interview and she coached me through this, it was a bit nerve-racking at first but I really think it helped my application. I would thoroughly recommend Michelle and Niche to anyone looking for a marketing role.


    Marketing Manager

    A massive 5 star for Niche! I've mostly been in touch with Charli from Niche and she's been so helpful. From the point of understanding what am looking for to arranging the interview to continually checking how it's going with my new role, she's been so thoughtful. I trust all employees of Niche are the same and would highly recommend Niche for recruitment services.


    Test Engineer

    Excellent Recruiters! I truly felt like their goal was to find the right position for me, not just "fill a gap". They talked me through everything from how to improve my CV to how to prepare for the interview with specific recommendations for this role. I was very happy with the personalised and friendly service provided by Charli.
