About NC Associates

NC Associates are professional services recruitment specialists. Originally founded to provide a fresh approach and more personal service to finance and accountancy businesses throughout the North West, we’ve now expanded to provide a full range of professional services recruitment.

Operating across three primary regional hubs in Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester, the business has the backing of Bluestones Investment Group and its 18 locations throughout the UK which are used for interviewing and resourcing from a national talent pool.

Our experienced team are able to provide temporary, interim and permanent solutions to suit all client needs. We don’t consider ourselves as ‘just another recruitment agency’.

We consistently strive to be Partners in Business with the companies we are lucky enough to call patrons, providing the level of service and reliability our clients and candidates have come to expect from a personally managed, professional company.

It is this ambition to provide the very best personal service of a smaller organisation, coupled with the high level of professionalism our team has accumulated through years of experience in the recruitment industry, that has resulted in the continued and growing success of our business.

Our values


We’re passionate about our clients and the many candidates we assist. Our passion shows we have absolute belief and confidence in ourselves, and it’s our passion that has also helped us become experts in our industry. This passion will help us continue to provide the best customer experience possible.


We believe our reputation is built on being reliable. We don’t over-promise clients and candidates and deliver on what we set out to do. At NC Associates the nature of our business means we have a dual focus – on the needs of both our clients and candidates. We have high expectations and believe that being reliable, professional and honest allows the formation of long-lasting relationships.


We’re reliable and honest and work to the highest standards of integrity. We are respectful, transparent and ethical in all our actions and we honour all our commitments to both our clients and candidates.


We deliver a consistently high-quality service and we endeavour to carry on working with high-calibre clients and to represent high-quality candidates.
