Nicholson Glover was born in 2002, just as the world was reeling from the devastating aftermath of the dot-com bubble. In the midst of it all, Francis Nicholson and Alice Glover found that their once-stable jobs vanished overnight.

Rather than succumbing to despair, they resolved to turn this adversity into a golden opportunity by forging their own path as entrepreneurs.

Sitting around their humble kitchen table, Francis and Alice conceived the idea that would soon become Nicholson Glover—a recruitment agency dedicated to serving the research and insight industry.

Over the next few years, fuelled by passion, Nicholson Glover emerged as a rising force, redefining excellence in recruitment and partnering with well-loved global consumer and retail brands like Cadbury, Bacardi, Diageo, Marks & Spencer, and Sainsbury’s.

In 2010, Nicholson Glover pushed the boundaries of its expertise, growing its team and expanding its reach into new frontiers like data analytics and digital marketing recruitment. Through determination, the business grew its client list, working with some of the biggest players in the media and technology industries, including the BBC, Disney, Expedia, MTV, and Sony Pictures.

In 2017, the business received an infusion of fresh energy and vision when Rudy Fernando, who had climbed the ranks within the company, acquired a shareholding in Nicholson Glover.

Together, Nicholson and Fernando formed a dynamic duo, leading the company into a new era of growth and further expanding its reach by recruiting in a new market: strategy & innovation.

The world of recruitment has undergone a seismic transformation over the past two decades with the rapid evolution of technology.

The once-physical database, tucked away in a dusty corner cabinet, has now migrated to the ethereal realm of the cloud. The power of connections, once harnessed through rolodexes and business cards, is now amplified through the vast network of LinkedIn. And CVs, once dutifully sent through traditional mail, now soar through cyberspace to reach potential employers in an instant.

Amidst this ever-changing landscape, Nicholson Glover remains a beacon of stability and trustworthiness. The passage of time has strengthened our resolve as we continuously deepen our understanding of the markets we serve. An unwavering commitment to honesty and helpfulness has set us apart, forging strong bonds with candidates and clients who appreciate a genuine approach.
