Having recently hired senior contracts manager Guillaume Hespeel from international contracts recruiter Montreal Associates, we are in a strong position to rapidly grow this new division. Guillaume will initially be focused on the French IT market and will soon be joined by consultants working alongside him in the French & UK regions.

Guillaume has more than 10 years experience recruiting technical contract and permanent professionals into a range of sectors in France and is very much looking forward to adding at least another 4 heads to his team this year.

Nicholson Search & Selection partner with Dataiku

Nicholson Search & Selection are delighted to announce a partnership with advanced analytics software solution provider, Dataiku.

Nicholson have been recruiting senior executives for Dataiku for the past four years with considerable success. Nicholson’s success has been down to their intimate knowledge of the Data Analytics market and their ability to develop a deep understanding of Dataiku’s business by working closely with their senior line managers and the Co-Founder Florian Douetteau. During this period they have placed 15 highly skilled executives all of whom are adding exceptional value to this French early stage company. This track record is also testament to the success of Dataiku in being attractive to prospective employees because of their unique service offering and retaining them by creating an excellent working environment.

Dataiku has been successful in making quality hires through Nicholson because of a combination of them being a high quality organisation with excellent products, strong management and a clear growth plan and vision, and the proactive approach that Nicholson has taken to identify and approach the very best candidates from relevant technology organisations.
