After an early career in surfing which is long story but involved lots of travelling and adventures, Nick enjoyed many happy years of success, winning awards and climbing the ranks in numerous large recruitment agencies. Having reached a ceiling, Nick decided to take his experiences and build a company that could encompass his vision and tailored approach.
On Tuesday 13th October 2009 Foxwell Associates was formed, with the clear message of a unique service built around each customer. When the team grew, the right people were selected to ensure the delivery of the service level that clients had got used to over the years. Although this meant slower growth, it ensured the quality that underpins our service today.
After the success of accounting and finance, the offering was increased to include the operational side of the NHS, which ensured the maximisation of solid relationships with numerous organisations throughout the country. In 2017 a former colleague of Nick’s joined Foxwell Associates to lead a division focusing on financial recruitment across the commercial and third sector which has also gone from strength to strength.
Alex joined Foxwell Associates to lead on the development of our offering within the NHS, primarily focusing on senior finance and programme management roles ranging from band 8A – VSM.
Having developed a robust network within the last 4 years, Alex recruits throughout the South East and Home Counties, in what is a rapidly growing team due to market demands and company expansion. His strong track record is based on building successful and sustainable relationships with both candidates and clients alike, offering what is a tailored approach to each and every organisation.
Prior to joining Foxwell Associates Alex worked as a Sales Executive for one of the largest worldwide insurance companies, where he obtained key experience within business development, in what was a customer focused role.
Rich has worked in recruitment for the last 9 years, focusing on various sectors in the South West. Prior to this he worked within Accountancy at Pricewaterhouse Coopers LLP and a Bath based chartered accountancy practice, which provided him with excellent sector specific knowledge and understanding to effectively recruit for the finance sector.
Rich is responsible for leading the development of the commerce and industry division in the South West, recruiting from graduate and entry level positions through to director and board level.
Thorough and meticulous in his approach Rich listens carefully to client’s specifications and candidate’s preferences, with the focus on developing successful and lasting relationships for the region’s businesses.
