Nick Haaker

Talent Delivery Consultant

Nick was born in Lima, Peru where he lived until he was 12. He spent a few months in the US before finally settling in the UK, living in London and then Bournemouth.

Nick attended Bournemouth University where he studied Law but soon realised his passion for working with people in a far more direct and immediate way. He joined O2 where he spent 5 years honing his customer service skills, learning the value of relationships, the importance of rapport and the fine art of sales.

Nick left O2 to run his own events company for 2 years, working alongside one of the biggest night club franchises across the UK. Despite learning a lot about business management, Nick wanted to move back to sales (and more sociable hours) finding employment in business development for Albion Studies and later Virgin Media. Nick greatly enjoys the consultative sales approach and it is one of the draws that attracted him to Electus’ unique approach to recruitment.

Nick’s move into the industry was driven by his desire to work directly with the end user, be it candidate or employer, and help them to achieve the best results possible. Nick’s background in customer service, consultative sales, strong interpersonal skills and a passion for engineering makes him a valuable member of the team.

And in his spare time… 

Nick studies astronomy as well as physics and is a keen nature enthusiast. His two lifelong dreams are to take a spacewalk and to see a blue whale in its natural habitat. Nick lives in Bournemouth with his partner.
