What our clients say

“I have worked with Peter and his team over a long period of time and in several contexts. At Glasgow Caledonian University, the University of Salford and when I was Chief Executive of Grenzebach Glier + Associates (Europe). Peter has always provided an excellent and professional recruitment service and I have been struck by the high level of communication that Peter provides to his clients and to the candidates.

It has also always been clear that Peter has a good understanding of the needs of Universities and in particular the business of Development, Alumni Relations and Communications.”
