UK. He also headed up a project to staff a Knee specialist clinic in Dubai- founded by the King of Dubai.

Nichola Acton
Senior Consultant

Nichola is originally from Manchester where she worked as a Store Manager for the luxury beauty brand Space NK. Following 5 successful years in this role, Nichola began her recruitment career working for Reed Recruitment in the senior level finance sector.
Upon moving to London in 2009, Nichola then joined ROC recruitment, initially as a temp to run the Christmas temps campaign for Selfridges – covering all aspects of on and off site responsibilities. This successful season resulted in Nichola being offered a permanent contract with ROC – working on the temp’s desk in both Retail and Commercial sectors.

During the summer of 2010, Nichola was asked to assist the ROC beauty division in a project to staff an entire new beauty boutique in the North of England. Nichola was the obvious choice for this role, not least of all because of her expertise in beauty from her days of Store Manager for Space NK.

The hugely successful outcome of this project lead to Nichola joining the Beauty Division permanently, untimely utilising her skills to grow her own desk in the sector.
