Nathan Upton

Director

Hi, I’m Nathan Upton, Director of nGenium. After graduating from University I decided to pursue a career in recruitment. My 16 years in recruitment started as a trainee consultant in 2008 and progressed to Senior then principal consultant before moving into a management position. In 2019, an opportunity presented itself to set up a new recruitment company, specialising in Embedded Software & Electronics. Having already had 7 years experience in the market decided to take the plunge of starting a business of my own. One of the main attractions was being able to use my previous experience to build a company from the ground up that I could be proud of. I pride myself on being honest, open and hardworking which has allowed me develop a large number of strong business relationships throughout my career. Outside of the office I like to spend a lot of time with my friends and family. I am also keen sportsman and like to spend as much of my free time on the golf course as possible (mainly missing putts).

Sam has placed me in my current role and I am extremely happy. Sam took time to listen to me and was keen to help me, he was always there when I had questions about the role and company and has since kept in touch with me since I started this placement. Sam was a pleasure to work with and I would happily recommend him to people I know who are looking for a placement.

Review for Sam O'Leary

My experience with nGenium representing me to the client has been a happy one from the start. The representative matched my skills to the client’s requirements very well, which ended in a long lasting contract position. The extensions kept coming, the pay was regular like a Swiss clock. I trust nGenium to be one of my stronger partners in my future career progression
 

Review for Nathan Upton

I cannot thank Alan Ling enough for the pleasant experience I have had with nGenium. Alan has been nothing but helpful and supportive from the get-go of finding my new role within the Biomedical Engineering sector. He has carried out regular check-ups with me during the whole onboarding process with my new employer! I cannot recommend this company and Alan enough to those who feel undervalued elsewhere or those that are searching for a new challenge! 

Review for Alan Ling

I’d like to thank Nathan read for his commitment and help he’s given me to achieve the next steps in my journey to completing my career goals. It’s been sometime since my last interview and the whole process can feel a little bit daunting and overwhelming, I can say that this experience has been a bit nothing short of remarkable but Nathan made it not only manageable but also successful. His communication and understanding of the direction I wanted to pursue were truly exceptional, ensuring that I remained
well-informed at every stage of the interview process

 

Review for Nathan Read
