Welcome to the team, Ryan Smith

We’d like to extend a very warm welcome to NC Associates’ newest Talent Specialist, Ryan Smith.


To get to know Ryan, we asked him to take our new starter quiz, here is what he said.

Three words to describe yourself
Positive, dynamic, and resilient.

In your own words, tell us a bit about your background
I’m originally from Ramsbottom in Manchester which is where I grew up. I am engaged and look forward to getting married in the Lake District in August 2023. I was previously in Sales, but I’ve now been in recruitment for 7 years.

Who do you admire most and why?
My youngest brother. He took an exciting job opportunity to live and work in Austria and has done so for the last 4 years.

Name three people you’d like to invite to a dinner party (alive or dead)
Robin Williams, because he’s an absolute comedy genius. Will Ferrell and John C Reilly because it’s a Catalina wine mixer, and Marc Bolan because my dad wants an autograph.

What do you do best?
I am a decent golfer and have the nickname Ryson de Chambeau because of how far I hit. I do a lot of wakeboarding and wakesurfing in the summer and visit my brother in Austria to do snowboarding. But most importantly, I am about to become a dad for the first time, so I’m hoping this is what I will do best!

What’s your pet peeve?
Not saying please and thank you. It doesn’t matter who you are, manners cost nothing.

What’s your favourite film?
Saving Private Ryan.

What are you most looking forward to whilst working at NC Associates?
Establishing a new division for NC Associates and growing the team. Also, collaborating with my colleagues and sharing what has always worked best for me and making the office fun and vibrant.
