NC Associates

NC Associates is a well-regarded professional services recruitment company that don’t consider ourselves as ‘ just another recruitment agency’. We consistently strive to be ‘partners in business’ with the companies we are lucky enough to call patrons, providing the level of service and reliability our clients and candidates have come to expect from a personally managed professional company. It is this ambition to provide the very best personal service of a smaller organisation, coupled with the high level of professionalism our team has accumulated through years of experience in the recruitment industry, that has resulted in the continued and growing success of our business.

Working with the Bluestones Group

As NC Associates was originally set up by Wayne Caunce, he had the added benefit of launching a new recruitment business with the support of the Bluestones Group. Importantly for him, joining the Group meant being a part of the Professional Services division and being able to leverage that extended network of professional recruiters in different locations and sectors.

Best aspect of being part of the Bluestones Group

Our primary ambition was to create a recruitment business that our professional services clients and candidates trusted. The boutique agency approach we’ve adopted supports this focus on providing a high-quality, personal service – whilst retaining the professionalism our team has accumulated through years of experience in the recruitment industry. Having the investment and support from the Bluestones Group allowed us to have this flexibility, particularly during the early start-up months… and evolve from solely focusing on accountancy and finance, to now providing a comprehensive professional services recruitment offering.
