Nicholas Associates Group has grown from expansion and diversification since its humble beginnings back in 1977.
Chairman, Nick Cragg, started the business specialising in recruiting for the Construction industry. With a true entrepreneurial spirit and an eye for seizing opportunities, Nick grew our Group, moving into the temporary labour supply market by launching our Stafforce brand.
Acquisition & Diversification
Through further expansion came the addition of Nicholas Associates Engineering, Technical and Manufacturing recruitment specialists, additionally our Group moved into Executive Search and Apprentice Employment. This expansion helped to reinforce our strength in the market place.
Our story progressed in 2016 by establishing Nicholas Associates Group, bringing together all of our specialist recruitment brands. Ashley Kate HR (Now Ashley Kate HR & Finance) and XL Graduates (Now Graduate Talent Solutions) were acquired.
These acquisitions add to our impressive portfolio and help to bring our ambition to be the ‘UK’s market-leading partner of choice for talent management solutions, from Apprentice to Boardroom’ to life.
