Nick Dettmar

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.
