• Nicole Vohs

    Director

    Like my husband Matthew, I also have extensive experience in the retail world.

    Having graduated from the London College of Printing, I started my career as Fabric Co-ordinator at SR Gent, before moving to an agency supplying fabrics from India to high street stores.  

    Now, as co-director of V&C, I’m incredibly proud of our solid reputation built on trust, discretion and empathy to both candidate and client. 

    And I'm proud of our team, who work tirelessly to find the best people for the job. 

    Because we all strive to provide a personal and professional approach, across all levels.
