Welcome to NJD Group

Established in 1992, NJD group have been the first and last stop for senior recruitment and consultancy projects for many US and European media and entertainment clients including NBC Universal, Warner Bros, Discovery, Viacom, Paramount, Channel 4, Fox, Sony and Yahoo!

We only place individuals or teams who stand out, excel and add true value to your organisation whilst integrating with your company’s culture and structure. And if that culture or structure needs re-aligning or better defining, we can help there too.

Our Ventures Division invests in and gives management support to new ventures. With a history of general consultancy and new media launches in the entertainment sector, NJD Group is an ideal strategic partner for a new venture, or the further strategic development of an existing business.

Our Founder

Nicky J Davis – Founder

Managing consultant of NJD Group, Nicky has worked with numerous blue chip clients, including: Warner Bros, NBC Universal, Fox, Viacom BBC Worldwide, Channel 4, Sony, Discovery and Yahoo!

Integral to the launch of some of the highest rating digital TV channels in Europe for US Studios, Nicky was also the launch CEO and a Director of Film24, Joint MD of the strategic management consultancy Overdog, a Council Member/Director of the Royal Television Society, on the Board of Women in Film & Television (UK) for 5 years and has sat on various industry committees.


Executive Search

Founded in 1992 and based both in London and at Pinewood Film Studios, NJD Group was the original specialist executive search firm for the media industry. Its premise was “pay for results, not educating your consultant” a great USP for cornering the market in TV, radio, film, music and games, competing extremely effectively with the larger more  generalist global search firms.

Equally informed and active in the digital and mobile space, the NJD Group principle has always been to understand your business as well as you do, in order to most effectively help in any given area.

International in our outlook and experience, we have worked on a pan-European basis for many US Studios and international media companies, working extensively in such territories as UK, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Benelux, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
An Executive Search firm with a difference, we handle both individual appointments, from CEO/MD and other Board level appointments/ Heads of Department, to entire teams for new or existing media ventures both here, across Continental Europe and, on occasion, world-wide.

Our reputation is for fast, efficient and cost effective search work and a level of commitment and service to both clients and candidates that is unrivalled by any other search firm or recruitment organisation.


Alongside its executive search pedigree, NJD Group also invests in or gives management support to new ventures. With a history of general consultancy and new media launches in the entertainment sector, we are an ideal strategic partner for your new venture, or for the development of an existing one.

NJD Group was integral to the launch of NBC Universal Global Channels, which boasts some of the highest rated digital channels in Europe. Together with our sister company Overdog, we launched Film24, the TV channel all about film, and have recently been involved with the development of MOBILIZED, which offers brand and media owners a new and innovative route to market for their digital content, MOVIESTORM, a software application that lets anyone make animated movies on a home computer and STARMAX HD, Spain’s New HDTV Platform. Current projects include STUDIOZERO, a new entertainment portal & TV channel, the re-launch of Film24 for the independent film community, and Project13, a precedent-setting TV & web destination and VOD business appealing to the broad-based, diverse LGBT audience.
