Meet the Recruiter: Nicholas Morton


What made you want to join HRC Recruitment?

It was an opportunity that I felt I could fit into personally and practically. I’ve never worked in an office before, so the chance to develop into a role and career were really enticing. I also felt like they actually cared about me and wanted me to truly want the position before committing to relocating, which only made me want it more.

What career path did you follow before getting into recruitment?

I’ve been an Opera Singer for the last nine years (training included) and I also started doing voiceover work during the last year as well as a few other side hustles.

What was your dream job as a child? 

I can’t totally remember if I’m honest, but there was definitely a period (when I was far too young to understand) where I thought I wanted to join the army.

What’s been your biggest success so far?

Nick Morton Legal Recruiter

In recruitment? Getting on the phones and just trying not to trip up on my tongue.

Before that? Performing on stage at the Royal Danish Opera…and, also, trying not to trip up on my tongue.

When we’re not in the middle of a pandemic, what do you like to do in your free time?

Unsurprisingly, I like attending music events. I also like to stay fairly active, I’m a boulderer/climber, and I started playing golf last year.

What is most important to you?

It might sound really simple and silly, but being happy.
