What is Nelson King?

Previously specialising only in the CPG sector, Nelson King now recruits from middle management to C-Level, Board, and Non-Executive Directors in the CPG / FMCG, Energy and Consulting sectors.

Established in May 1996, Nelson King was set up to fill the gap in Executive Recruitment for highly discerning clients needing top calibre Senior sales and marketing people in the consumables sector. From 2010 we expanded to recruit in the Energy and Renewable Energy sectors as well.

Always passionate about the environment and helping to reduce CO2 emissions, the partners at Nelson King are fully accredited Commercial Energy Assessors with 20 years experience in recruiting at the highest levels in industry. 

We now recruit the highest calibre, board level and Senior sales and marketing professionals within the Consulting and Energy Sectors, as well as Senior people working in CPG. 

Top level clients and the highest calibre staff

Nelson King will be applying the same quality processes that have enabled us time and time again to delight the most discerning clients with successful recruitment outcomes where all other recruiters had failed.

As with all completed recruitment outcomes over the last few years, Nelson King continues to donate a percentage of fee income to a good cause.  River Blindness is fatal, once contracted. To date, we have sent donations covering the cost of saving more than 15,000 eyesights and lives in West Africa and Indonesia.
