I Built My Own Recruitment Company With The Strategies I Now Teach


nicky_pictureI remember it well, the year was 1997 and I had just received the confirmation of my new job as a trainee recruiter. A lot can happen in 17 years and; it has. The truth is most of my business life has revolved around recruitment and working closely with fellow recruitment professionals.

My life as a recruiter? I went from being a high biller to becoming a director of my own company and then to establishing Centred Excellence; a recruitment training company where I now teach recruitment pro’s the skills that have brought me untold success.

Recruitment has changed drastically over the past decade. The individuals and companies I work with appreciate the need for recruiters at, every level to develop the skills and mindset that will deliver accelerated performance; consistently. That is what I help them achieve.

My personal goal has always been to help recruiters live a profitable and prosperous life. A prosperous life where there is a plentiful supply of money and the time and energy to enjoy it.

“Since we last met I have consistently been out on 5/6 client meetings each month – pitching and that fear is no longer an issue! AND I have just had my best month ever in recruitment! Doing 4 x deals for £37,335. I just wanted to say thank you for all your help!!”  Rachael Dormer – White Label

There is nothing wrong with being focused and working hard; it is a trait of most successful recruiters. However there comes a time where working smart and efficiently will bring even bigger rewards.

That is our goal for you at Centred Excellence. We help you create the recruitment business you want through our various programmes.

  • Our Leader Manager programmes are run throughout the year and sell out every time. Here I share my turnkey system and every tool and template you will ever need to take your team and business to the next level. This programme has been battle tested by me personally and hundreds of recruitment managers I have taught this to over the past few years.
  • The 750k billing blueprint is exactly that. A roadmap designed for independent recruiters that want to generate high billings within 12 months. This is an intense programme that runs over a year.
  • In my various programmes students get a high level of access to me. How? We have created a number of interactive forums where people post their questions and I answer them!
  • I do have a limited number of 1 to 1 coaching clients. Because of my commitments this is the exception rather than the rule.

“Since our sessions, I have trebled the numbers I have out on contract, plus I have been a lot more efficient with my time and focused on what I want out of a meeting / call etc.  Still room for improvement, but I am focused, working hard and I am enjoying myself.”  Andy Gunn, Centre 4 Testing

Other things you might want to know?

I am a ‘normal’ busy entrepreneur.  Learning and my own development plays a major part in my life. I never ask my clients to do something I wouldn’t do myself; therefore I too have my own coach and mentor and invest significantly in my own development.  Personal stuff? I am an ex England Rugby international living in Scotland; yes that does prove interesting at times. As a retired athlete, I still have a passion for exercise, and I have been known to take the occasional drink and tell terrible jokes!
