Nick Bate


You don’t have to be called Nick to work here, but it clearly helps. Nick is one of the two business leaders at Blue Eskimo. His experience of over 30 years in L&D enables Nick to work with clients at the highest level – speaking their language and understanding their issues.

Nick is good at:

  • Networking – at least his 15,000+ connections say so
  • Recruitment for senior and executive sales professionals, such as head of sales, account director and business development manager
  • Matching the right people with the right roles in the right companies
  • Contributing to the debates around L&D skills, via his newsletter, which includes observations on trends in L&D

Nick’s testimonials:

“Nick is nothing like most people’s impression of the archetypal recruiter. Whilst he’s definitely high on enthusiasm and energy, it’s also clear that he’s focused on finding the right fit. Whenever I talk with Nick, I’m struck by his understanding of our business – and the fact that he always makes me think harder about how to position my value to potential employers. He’s a valuable addition to my network – and comes highly recommended in his professional work.”

Mark Swain

“Nick is one of the most helpful, friendly and reliable recruiters I’ve been in contact with during my job search. He was always quick to return my calls, and took the time to chat and find out about me, and what sort of role would be right for me. If I am in the position of looking for another e-learning role in the future, I’ll start by ringing Blue Eskimo and asking for Nick.”

Martin Sears

“Whilst in a career transition, and feeling quite frustrated about the lack of opportunities in the job market, Nick has been a breath of fresh air. I registered with quite a few recruitment companies, but Blue Eskimo has stood out above all the others in areas of professionalism, understanding of the client requirements and the ability to match those closely with candidate skills. At every step of the recruitment process Nick has been very helpful, informative, honest, open, contactable and reliable. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with someone as talented and intuitive as Nick – with a clear and unequivocal eye for detail.”

Andre Palmer

“Nick is the only recruiter I would go back to should the need arise to look for another e-learning sales role. However, as he did such a good job last time I don’t see that happening any time soon!”
