Meet the Team – Manchester

We're changing the perception of sales.

Kyle Gallagher (AKA KG, AKA Giz, AKA Gizlar, AKA Dad) – Team Managerpicture1

The one Gallagher brother that had no musical talent… Primes’ Kyle Gallagher is both the king of nicknames and the king of recruitment and sales. After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University with a 2:1 in business and marketing Kyle was Prime’s first ever employee back in 2014 and has grown into an essential part of the team.  Now Kyle is a team manager at Prime and as well as this he is responsible for managing both candidate and client relationships.

Kyle is a strong Manchester United fan, he also loves a glass of red wine and all kinds of food. He is also a fan of his indie bands such as: Oasis, Blossoms and Courteeners (he gets especially upset if you insult Courteeners in front of him.)

The Gandhi man can. A fan of funky shirts and football Nick is Primes’ Senior Sales Recruiter meaning he is key in matching clients with candidates and managing company relationships. A true force to be reckoned with when it comes to his job Nick eats, lives and breathes sales and recruitment and achieves killer results because of it.

When he’s not in work mode Nick is a fan of Manchester United and is constantly being grilled by the team for his poor food and fashion tastes but we love him anyway.
