Nicholas Ogden - Testimonials

Don't just take our word for it, here's what our clients and candidates have to say about Nicholas Ogden, Consultant at Pro-Marketing

Nick is great to work with. Dedicated, collaborative and supportive, he has really taken the time to understand my team and what I am looking for. Nick has always made himself available around my challenging schedule to discuss any questions I have, going the extra mile and supporting me to make the right decision for my team and organisation. Nick is discerning and professional as well as being a good communicator and I look forward to working with him again. - Vicky Johnson, Head of Individual Giving, 
The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity

We at Hopscotch Women's Centre have been supported so thoroughly by Pro-Marketing during these trying covid times, with really high quality volunteers coming through who we are very grateful for. - Benaifer Bhandari, CEO, The Hopscotch Asian Women's Centre

Throughout the recruitment process I found Nick to be incredibly reliable, approachable and utterly professional. Having dealt with several recruiters throughout my career, Nick has shone above the rest in his manner and handling of both the role and process. I would highly recommend both Pro-Marketing and Nick in any recruitment needs, I have been thoroughly impressed. -  Bethan Garland, Digital Officer, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust 

I have worked with Nick Ogden at Pro-Group on several roles over the last year, most recently to recruit an Individual Giving Fundraiser.  From the start Nick’s focus has been to understand the culture of our organisation and in particular the unique aspects of the role we are seeking to fill, this has meant the candidates he has put forward have been a great match.  Throughout the process Nick has been supportive, flexible and accessible which I have found vital in the fast paced world of recruiting. Our new Individual Giving Fundraiser is settling in really well to the team and is already making a positive impact. - Stephanie Dean, HR Business Partner, Shooting Star Children's Hospices

I was first introduced to the Pro-Group in February 2018, and it has been a pleasure working with them on the recruitment of our new fundraiser officer.  We are extremely pleased with the results and I am sure we have secured a great individual to our team. Nick Ogden was my contact and I was particularly impressed that he made a clear effort to understand the culture of our charity, the requirement for this role and matched these with the needs of the candidates.  At all times, communication was clear, effective and very friendly. Now, when recruiting for any future positions, I will certainly use The Pro-Group. - Joan Kearns, Director of Development & Services at The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre

Nick has been a really amazing help in getting me my fantastic new role at Starlight. In an environment where relationships between recruiter and candidate are often transactional, with the odd automated text, Nick has really taken the time to involve himself in the needs of the client organisation and help me to see how I am the right fit. He has listened, coached me and genuinely been interested in me and what's best for his client. He came across as really knowledgeable and emotionally intelligent and I am really grateful for his support. I owe him at least a beer. - Richard Jane, Head of Marketing and Communications at Starlight Children's Foundation

Recruitment within the charity can sometimes be a challenge for a number of reasons but it is very reassuring to know that you can call up recruiters who understand the challenges we face and how quickly we need to move on those challenges. I have found Pro-Group to be supportive, understanding, quick and very proactive about our needs as a small charity.  Nick Ogden has been instrumental in the recruitment of our Head of Communications and Marketing and he presented us with a high calibre candidate who was successfully recruited with quick a turnaround. I certainly will recommend their services. Thank you - Lola Olujobi, HR Director at Noah's Ark Children's Hospice

Nick has been a huge help to me. He found my CV on Reed and gave me a call to see if I was suitable for a role he had in mind. After a brief conversation about the role and my experience he arranged an interview. Nick has been incredibly helpful throughout my job hunt, providing interview tips, insights into the organisation and always keeping in contact with both myself and the organisation. Thanks Nick, I'm really excited to start my new job and wouldn't have found it without your help! - Charlotte Schofield, Individual Giving Fundraiser at The Scout Association

This is our first time using Pro-Recruitment, we were not disappointed. Nick was very proactive from the beginning and sent a lot of excellent candidates our way for the Senior Events Officer role. We have worked with others on this role and none of them matched the quality of candidates that Pro-Recruitment managed to source. We will definitely be working with Nick and the Pro-Recruitment team again. - Scott Weir, HR Professional at Mayhew Animal Home

Pro-Marketing helped CanDo on a successful recruitment for a Grant Development Lead. All recommended candidates were promising and their profile met CanDo requirements. I see Pro-Marketing as a flexible partner that looks forward and meets clients’ needs the best possible way. I would certainly use their services in future recruitments and I would happily recommend them. - Anastasia Piliouni, Operations Lead at CanDo International

I was first introduced to the Pro-Marketing in December 2018, and it has been a pleasure working with them on the recruitment of our new Fundraiser Manager. We are extremely pleased with the outcome and I am sure we have secured a great new addition to our amazing team here at The Scouts. Nick Ogden was my contact and I was particularly impressed that he invested his time in understanding the culture of our charity, the package offered as well as the requirements for this role and matched these with the needs of the candidates. At all times, communication was clear, effective and very friendly. Now, when recruiting for any future positions, I will certainly use Pro-Marketing again and happy to recommend them to others - Sue Piper, Head of Fundraising at The Scout Association

I'd highly recommend Pro-Marketing recruitment agency. They were very knowledgeable about all things marketing, super encouraging and just an all-round lovely team to work with. They understood what I was looking for quickly and consistently put me forward for roles that were right up my street, taking a lot of stress out of the job-hunting process. I have just secured a fantastic role with a fantastic charity (my sector of choice) and I plan to use Pro again when I'm ready to take the next step in my career. - Laura Cook, Digital Content Manager, Stroke Association

​I have really enjoyed working with Pro-Marketing; they were supportive, informative, gave great advice on what to expect throughout the recruitment process. I would recommend the team 100%. - Grace Andrews, Marketing and Digital Manager at The Poppy Factory

If you're looking for an agency I think Pro-Marketing is a good choice - they were attentive throughout my interview and recruitment process and conscientious but not overbearing in supporting me throughout my placement. - Laura Kennedy, Interim Managing Editor at Lumos 

Pro-Marketing was very helpful in filling our Digital Media Manager position. Despite having had a candidate who was offered and accepted the job and then changed her mind, on the upside, it felt like both candidates put forward were high quality rather than 'just anyone' who applied. They understood our requirements, culture and challenges and I would recommend Pro-Marketing in the future. - Jane Keightley, Director of Communications at Child Bereavement UK
