How did the dynamic duo start their journey?

"In 2001 when my wife and I were house hunting, I met a bright, highly driven young estate agent called Nick Harris. Having at that point 5 years of recruitment experience I was never off duty and was always looking for great personalities that could add value to our clients and candidates. I jokingly said to my wife that once we've secured our house, I'd be offering Nick a job in my team. Nick took to recruitment like a duck to water and was my natural successor when I left CD in 2014."


Nick Harris - Director                                                                           

With over 18 years of construction Sales Recruitment experience Nick is a true veteran of the industry. Nick still has the same passion as he did on his very first day almost two decades ago, you will only have to speak to him to understand that. His experience and guidance are what has led him to be a trusted advisor to his clients and candidates alike. A lot of Nicks clients were once in-fact his candidates who he had successfully placed in great roles.
Away from the business Nick can be found chasing his son around the park and looking after his family, also a keen martial artist holding a fourth dan black belt in Taekwon-do. If you want to work with a real industry professional then contact him today. Follow my LinkedIn

Nick's history with Colin

"Having met Colin at the start of 2001 we instantly built up a very natural rapport, I could see that he was an incredibly passionate person who takes real pride in what he does and knows how to get results! I was chuffed when Colin approached me about coming to work for him at CD Sales Recruitment a few months after we had met and not long after the approach I had joined the business!"
