New Street Consulting Group (NSCG) is in the talent business: finding it for its clients and developing it within its own ranks.

The company, which was founded in 2003 by Doug Baird, is committed to supporting and nurturing its team. It began life as Interim Partners, launched BrightPool six years later and then acquired Wickland Westcott. The brands were brought together as NSCG in 2020, creating a unified team with a clear purpose: to help individuals and organisations fulfil their full potential. Its service lines fall into four areas: Find (executive search and interim partners), Assess (leadership assessment), Deploy (agile talent solutions) and Transform (leadership development and talent strategy consulting). It has offices in London and Leeds, with a global client base.

Learning and development programmes help staff to progress and they can benefit from gym membership and healthcare cover, flexible working, career breaks and work secondment opportunities. There is a mentoring scheme for all employees.

Through a partnership with Resurgo's Spear programme, they can also volunteer to help young people find a rewarding job. This can involve providing assistance with CV writing, interview preparation or coaching.

As part of its CSR commitments, this small company supports Spear Bethnal Green, a charity that inspires and encourages young people who face disadvantage as they move into sustained employment or education. They are equipped with confidence, motivation and the skills they need to succeed in long-term employment.

Featured Workplace Factors

Personal Growth

94% of staff agreed

The experience I gain from this job is valuable for my future

The e-learning system PiiQ allows staff to access thousands of courses. The company also uses the software to upload its own training sessions and webinars so that they can be accessed at any time. During the pandemic many employees have chosen to learn a new language.

My Team

94% of staff agreed

People in my team go out of their way to help me

Cross-business coffee catchups, which were arranged as one-to-ones between people who would not typically engage with one another, have led to collaborations between departments on projects. Positive stories and messages of support during the pandemic lockdowns were shared across the business on Yammer.

Fair Deal

85% of staff agreed

I feel I receive fair pay for the responsibilities I have in my job

The bonus scheme was redesigned to incentivise the achievement of sustained high levels of fee income, and to reward and retain successful employees. They can choose to take their full bonus pay as usual or defer 20% in return for a further contribution from NSCG.
