Food & Beverage

Our Team works with some of the most recognised and innovative brands within the Food and Beverage sector – brands that we recognise from our childhood, owned by blue chip FMCG businesses and also brands that are borne within start ups that are scaling fast and need the right talent bringing into the teams to achieve the growth plans of investors.

Never has there been a more challenging time for the Food and Beverage industry. Food prices are at their highest for 30 years forcing consumers and businesses to alter their spending patterns and working practices to reflect the changes. We support our clients on multiple hires to ensure they can drive growth whilst leading with purpose and focusing on important ESG criteria such as sustainability.

  • “Super efficient service with the desired outcome. A Great appointment.”

    Mick Howard

    CEO at Clearly Drinks

  • “Nigel Wright did a professional job and we are very satisfied with the results. The whole process was transparent and we were ultimately provided with two appointable candidates which left us with a choice – the desired situation. We would come back to you any time for future roles.”

    Reinhard Desch

    Group HR Director at Intersnack

  • “We required a Global Sales Director to take our performance to the next level and grow our business outside of the UK. We selected Nigel Wright to lead this critical search assignment based on its drinks industry expertise and extensive consumer sector networks. We’re delighted with the result and will happily use Nigel Wright again in the future.”

    John Keeling

    Director at Silent Pool Distillers

  • “Extremely reliable. Strong profiles. Very customer-oriented, Flexible. Gladly use you again.”

    Urte Heaney

    Head of Talent Acquisition at PepsiCo USA

  • “I provided Nigel Wright’s consultant with what I believed, was an impossible list of attributes. They included finding someone with experience of scaling up a distillery, who could operate effectively within our agile entrepreneurial culture. My expectation was that we’d attract candidates with some, but not all these traits. The consultant met with me and worked hard to understand our business, our ambitions and culture. I was always impressed with their ability to digest feedback, suggest alternative places to seek out talent, and ultimately present highly relevant profiles. The successful candidate is the perfect fit for 58 Gin, and I expect will be a real asset to our business. They joined us from a very similar company which has already undergone a scale-up process. A good understanding of the sector and its challenges was matched by a genuine commitment to grow an entrepreneurial brand.”

    Carmen Dunphy

    Managing Director at 58 Gin Ltd

  • “Nigel Wright were great to work with and found us the most outstanding candidate for our Senior Marketing Manager role. Our chosen candidate has had an exceptional impact on our business and we will certainly choose Nigel Wright as a search partner for us again.”
