Nikki Blackhurst

Director Executive Search

Nikki has a dual role within the organisation. A Board Director of Mackenzie Jones, Nikki also specialises in managing Executive Search assignments in FMCG across a number of disciplines up to, and including, Board level appointments. Her network in consumer spans just over twenty years. She began her career within recruitment at Michael Page International, where she quickly progressed to Manager of a successful Consumer team and then latterly taking up a position in the Michael Page Executive team. Following her second maternity leave, Nikki consulted in Recruitment and Research for various clients whilst taking on the challenging and rewarding role of managing her young family. Consultancy allowed Nikki valuable insight into the approach and processes of a number of leading and respected recruiters, experiences which she has incorporated into her own style to date. What gets her out of bed: “If I had a choice I wouldn’t! I am not a morning person but my children are always there with a smiling face at an unearthly hour. At the weekend, once up, we prefer being in the mountains or on the water pursuing our various activities: climbing, water-skiing, sailing and skiing. During the week we always have exciting business goals and challenges to meet, interesting clients to work with and a dedicated and passionate team who we genuinely enjoy spending time with.
