Meet the owner-directors: Nick Hardisty


Nick Hardisty is director of our Inspired Recruitment business – a division he has been at the helm of since 2000.

His impressive recruitment career spans almost 20 years, but he has unequally impressive career prior in other sector; in the 1990s he helped establish an energy installation business as well as acting as group sales manager for a broker in the automotive sector.

In his role at Inspired, Nick ensures the business is ahead of the curve in the fast-paced tech market; what started simply as an IT recruitment company, he has helped evolve Inspired into a consultancy which can address a range of complex client talent requirements – as well as developing a superb contacts book of brilliantly skilled candidates.

Inspired operates alongside sister business CCS which was established in 1995 to connect clients and candidates in the construction and property sectors.

Both companies are based out of headquarters in Stockport, Cheshire.
