Nicky Corps

Operations Manager / Executive Search / Business Psychologist

After graduating from Southampton University with a 2:1 Bsc Psychology degree in 2000, Nicky spent the next 9 years working for a successful independent Industrial and Driving agency. Starting her career as a Recruitment consultant, Nicky quickly progressed to Branch manager and finally to Area Manager. Nicky made the decision to open her own recruitment agency in 2009 after recognising a gap in the market for a niche specialist Engineering and Technical consultancy. Over the past 9 years Nicky has worked hard to establish a fantastic reputation as a leading Engineering and Technical recruitment company. Operating from their Hythe based office Nicky and her team work incredibly hard to offer an approachable, honest and friendly consultancy service to clients and candidates both locally and UK wide

In 2018 Nicky qualified as a Business Psychologist following successful completion of a Masters degree in Occupational Psychology from Leicester University. This has enabled Red Chilli Recruitment to offer additional valuable services to clients and candidates including psychometric testing, coaching, customised assessment design, talent attraction and retention strategies. Nicky also focuses her time on Executive Search assignments for Senior Management / Director level roles
