Nicola Shepherd

Freelance Director

With over a decade of experience under her belt, Nicola has worked for both instantly recognisable global recruitment brands and smaller boutique businesses who offer tailored services to their clients. Nicola joined Profiles Creative at the beginning of 2013 as a Senior Consultant, progressing into her current Associate Director role in 2015. Fast forward to the present day and Nicola is now responsible for the ongoing success and happiness of the Profiles Creative freelance recruitment team, along with the management of some of Profiles Creative's key accounts.

Nicola believes in a quality not quantity approach to recruitment. She is known within the business for always going out of her way (often to the deepest, darkest depths of the English countryside) in an effort to understand what makes her clients tick. This means that she and her team are true experts at matching the best people with the best brands and agencies.

When she is not at work Nicola spends time travelling (personal favourites to date are the Taj Mahal, Galapagos Islands and Cape Town) and competing with her horse Cupcake in dressage and showing.


I know that when I phone Nicola at 5pm on a Friday night, I will have one of my preferred freelancers on my doorstep by 9am Monday morning. Nicola goes above and beyond to help, making the process seamless.
