Nick's background is sales and sales management. Prior to Inspired Recruitment Nick was instrumental in the set-up, growth and subsequent floatation of AI Claims solutions (formally Auto Indemnity), an AIM listed company now turning over in excess of £100m per annum. It was after the
floatation of AI Claims in 2000 that Nick decided he wanted a new challenge, which is when he was introduced to Sean Hickey.

Since 2000 Nick has worked with Sean on building Inspired Recruitment and a number of other ventures.

Outside of work Nick is a keen runner, cyclist and golfer. He enjoys watching football and is an avid Formula One fan, having travelled the world to watch the races. He is however happiest when spending his spare time with his partner and their young family.

Sean Hickey FIRP – Director

Sean HickeyFounding partner of Inspired Recruitment with Nick Hardisty. Sean has over 25 years experience within the recruitment sector and is where it all began.

Founding Inspired’s sister company CCS Recruitment in 1995 Sean decided that, on the back of his success, he should look to diversify. In early 2000 he saw an opportunity within the Technical side of recruitment and so Inspired Recruitment was born.

Sean is a major driving force and energy within the group maintaining an extremely hands-on and active role in all the companies and, along side Nick Hardisty, is constantly looking for opportunities for CCS Recruitment and Inspired Recruitment.

Outside of work Sean is a keen golfer and enjoys watching football and spending time with his family.

Kevin Moore BA (Hons) FIRP – Sales Director

Kevin MooreKevin Moore joined Inspired Recruitment in early 2001 with a brief to set-up the contract division. He joined Inspired from one of the largest national recruitment groups where he had rapidly grown a successful software and hardware engineering desk and become one of their star performers.

Kevin’s division has grown ever since, turning over in excess of £15m per annum, and in 2007 he was given Directorship in recognition of his efforts.

Kevin still maintains a very hands-on approach to his work, and still runs his own desk whilst also working closely along side Nick Hardisty in the running of Inspired Recruitment.

He operates within the contract and permanent markets, specialising in IT and Engineering in the defence, automotive and Commercial industries.
