Chief Executive Officer
Nick joined Outsource UK because he recognised his own values and ethics were a great match to those of company founder Paul Jameson, and he liked the unusual level of professionalism he saw in the company’s staff.
He firmly believes that in developing a deep understanding of the customers they work with and by building up long-standing relationships, Outsource really help their customers to improve their businesses. He knows that in times of skills shortages, like we are currently seeing in the IT and engineering sectors, only those organisations that are serious about the value of a motivated and skilled workforce will succeed.
Nick thinks now is a great time for the recruitment industry to raise its game. “Too many recruitment firms are transaction-focused and the industry has a reputation for being unprofessional”, says Nick, “it’s time to improve professional standards and work on building better value-based partnerships.”
With 20 years’ experience in the industry working at director level for well-known names such as Adecco and Computer People, Nick has extensive expertise in IT and Engineering recruitment.
Nick was appointed CEO of Outsource UK in January 2018, after serving three years as COO.
Paul Jameson is the founder of Outsource UK and has been at the helm since the business started in the early 1990s, first as MD then as CEO and Founder.
Paul is highly regarded by his peers in the recruitment industry; he has an extensive network of contacts and a wealth of experience in the recruitment sector. Naturally he’s proud of the strong business that Outsource UK has become, but mostly Paul is proud of the people who are Outsource UK.
It’s no coincidence the company’s proposition is “Taking Care of Everything”. As Paul says, “it’s simple really, treat people well and they will do a good job”. We think the fact that so many of the team have been with Outsource since the beginning speaks volumes.
Paul changed his role to Chairman in June 2020, to focus on growth plans.
Adam joined Outsource UK in late 2020 and is a bright and commercial Finance Director who has worked in some fast-growth businesses. He has experience of staffing from the 7 years he spent at Grant Thornton, where he was responsible for setting up the recruitment practice within the Audit function.
Adam’s focus is on building teams and developing individuals. He has worked on complex deals, playing a key part in pricing and signing off large tenders in both the Private and Public Sectors. He has extensive experience in the Professional Services sector, working on SoW and Fixed Price deals, as well as constructing proposals through the Government’s G-Cloud framework. Adam has led several re-financing activities and has been involved in M&A transactions.
Director of Client Services
With a strong track-record in driving sales best practice, Mark Harris leads Outsource’s business growth in Financial Services, Engineering, Specialist Markets and the Public Sector.
